Service Pack 1 for S7-HiGraph V5.3
S7-HiGraph V5.3 incl. SP1 offers the following new functions:
- Project password
A project passwort can be assigned with STEP 7 V5.4 and higher in order to provide access protection for projects and libraries. However, installation of STEP 7 V5.4 and of SIMATIC Logon V1.3 SP1 is a prerequisite.
When you have assigned a project password, S7-HiGraph will prompt you to enter the passwort for different actions, e.g. for creating and opening an object. In order to avoid frequent password requests, you can keep the project opened in the background in the SIMATIC Manager. More information is available from the help system for STEP 7 in the chapter "Information on access protection".
- Modification log
As from STEP 7 V5.4 you can run a modification log for projects and libraries when you have set up the access protection. It will log online actions, such as "loading", "change of operating status" or "overall reset". Installation of STEP 7 V5.4 and of SIMATIC Logon V1.3 SP1 is a prerequisite here also.
When you have activated a modification log, S7-HiGraph will ask you to enter a justification for your online action in the log. More information is available from the help system for STEP 7 in the chapter "Information on the modification log".
- Display of date and time
STEP 7 V5.4 and higher provides you with two formats for the display of date and time. You can choose between a display in the respective STEP 7 national language and the ISO 8601 Standard. The setting is done in the SIMATIC Manager in the register "Date and time" of the dialog field "Settings". More information is available from the help system for STEP 7 in the chapter "Display of date and time".
STEP 7 V5.4 and higher will display the module times in the local time of your PG or PC. The setting is done in the SIMATIC Manager in the register "Date and time" of the dialog field "Settings". More information is available from the help system for STEP 7 in the chapter "Display of date and time".
- Remote Desktop:
S7-HiGraph is not suitable for "Remote Desktop" under MS Windows XP Professional and MS Windows Server 2003. If you nevertheless wish to use this operating system feature, please note the following:
S7-HiGraph can only be started in one session. If S7-HiGraph has been started via "Remote Desktop" in one session, it cannot be started in any further session. Only one user can work with S7-HiGraph on any one computer.
- Changeover between absolute and symbolic representation of the operands
A changeover between absolute and symbolic representation of operands is now also possible in sources in memory format V4.
Select the menu command View > Display with > Symbolic operands or Absolute operands. S7-HiGraph will then convert all entered operands to the desired representation. However, operands entered after the changeover will not be adapted automatically to the selected type of representation.
- Representation of S7-HiGraph functions in LAD/FBD/STL:
An S7-HiGraph FC will now be distributed over several networks in LAD/FBD/STL representation. This enables extensive FCs to also be represented in the LAD/FBD/STL editor and to be examined, e.g. in the program status.
The last two added functions are also important for many users of S7-HiGraph V5.2, so that we have included them in a Service Pack for this S7-HiGraph version. The Service Pack SP1 for S7-HiGraph V5.2 is available for free downloading under entry ID 25534254. Please note the installation requirements for S7-HiGraph V5.2 in entry ID 15342658.
