DESCRIPTION:

When updating the firmware, you should always update to the latest version available for the product with the relevant article no. (order no.). The previous versions of the firmware are just meant to be a backup to enable you to downgrade to the original version. Until now this is not known to have been necessary in any case.

The update can be performed either with a Micro Memory Card or online:


1. Micro Memory Card:

Requirements for creating a firmware update card:

  • Micro Memory Card with at least 8 MB storage capacity
    (article no. 6ES7 953-8LP11-0AA0 )
  • STEP 7 V5.1 SP2 or higher
  • PC with external PROM programmer (6ES7 792-0AA00-0XA0) or 
    PG720 / 740 with adapter (6ES7 798-0BA00-0XA0) or
    FieldPG for programming the Memory Card

Creating the firmware update card with STEP7:

  1. Download the desired CP FW file.
  2. Unpack the file by double-clicking the file name
  3. Delete the Micro Memory Card by executing: "File/S7 Memory Card/Delete" in Simatic Manager.
  4. Program the firmware by selecting "Target system/update firmware" in SIMATIC Manager, then select the target directory and "Open" the CPU_HD.UPD file to start the programming process.
  5. Programming of the firmware update card is completed when the message "The firmware update for the module was transferred successfully to the S7 memory card" appears on the screen.

To update the operating system:

  1. Switch OFF the power supply (PS) of the rack in which the CP50M1 is located 
  2. Isolate the CP50M1 from the communication network
  3. The DIP switch S8 must be in the ON position.
  4. Insert the prepared operating system update card in the CP50M1
  5. Switch ON the power supply (PS) for the rack in which the CP50M1 is located
  6. The operating system is transferred from the Micro Memory Card to the internal CP50M1 flash EPROM. During this time all the CP's LEDs will be on.
  7. The operating system update is completed after about 2 minutes and is indicated by slow flashing of the STOP LED on the CP50M1 => prompt for overall reset by the system
  8. Switch the power OFF at the power supply and remove the Micro Memory Card.
  9. Switch ON the power supply. The CP50M1 is immediately ready for operation.


2. Online:

Requirements:

  • Online updating of the firmware is possible with STEP 7 V5.4 SP2, CFC V6.1 and D7-SYS V6.2 SP3 or higher.
  • The module in the station whose firmware is to be updated must be accessible online.
  • The module must not contain a MMC.
  • All DIP switches of the CP50M1 must be in the OFF position (delivery status).
  • The files with the latest firmware version must be available in the file system of your PG or PC. Any one folder may only contain the files for one firmware version.

To update the firmware:

  1. Start STEP 7 and switch to HW-Config.
  2. Open the station with the CP50M1 to be updated.
  3. Earmark the CP50M1.
  4. Select the command "Target system > Update firmware". The command can only be activated, if the marked module supports the function "firmware update".
  5. In the opened dialog "Update firmware" now use the "Search" button to find the path to the firmware update files (*.UPD).
  6. When you have selected a file, information will come up in the lower part of the "Update firmware" dialog, for which module and as from which firmware version the file is valid.
  7. Click the "Execute" button. STEP 7 will check whether the selected file can be interpreted by the module and then load the file to the CP50M1 if the answer is positive. If the operating mode of the CP50M1 must be changed for this purpose, you will be prompted via dialogs. The CP50M1 will then execute the firmware update by itself.
  8. Start the rack again, so that the module can perform a restart.
