2. What’s NEW in S7-TECHNOLOGY V4.1?

S7-TECHNOLOGY V4.1 comprises the following additions and changes compared to S7-TECHNOLOGY V3.0 SP2:

  • Flexible machine concept
    • S7-TECHNOLOGY V4.1 provides several options for flexible machine design and optimal adaptation to the operating conditions:
    • Changes to the configuration during runtime of the user program. This is done by means of technology functions provided by the S7-Technology library. No engineering system is required for this purpose. The new technology functions "MC_ActivateTO" and "MC_ActivateDPSlave" support enabling and disabling of technology objects and DP slaves on DP(DRIVE).
    • Enabling and disabling can alternatively be configured "off-line" in S7T Config.
       
  • Cam Track
    • S7-TECHNOLOGY V4.1 now supports the technology object Cam Track.
    • The cam tracks significantly increase the no. of cams.
    • The feature of cam tracks is that several cams can be output as a track on one output.
  • New STARTER functionality
    • The integral STARTER functionality of S7T Config now also supports firmware version V2.5.x of the SINAMICS drive S120.
    • The integral STARTER functionality of S7-TECHNOLOGY  V4.1 is in line with the new STARTER version V4.1.
       
  • GSD Files for CPU 31xT
    • The new version of S7-TECHNOLOGY V4.1 supports configuration of GSD files for CPUs 31xT-2DP.
    • GSD Files for CPUs 31xT-2DP can be downloaded from the Internet.
       
  • Printing out the technology settings with TOM
    • The parameter settings of technology objects (TO- DB updating, offset, reduction ratio, ...) can be conveniently printed out and documented.
       
  • Wizard to create T-Station
    • The new wizard enables users to create a complete T-Station including PG/PC station for routing, with only a few "clicks".
      * T-Station: Hardware configuration consisting of rack + CPU 31xT + subnetwork + PG/PC station.
  • Wizard for brake control
    • The new wizard enables users to conveniently parameterize the braking response of drives.
    • The new version of the technology function "MC_Power" enables use of  the integral brake controller of the drives.

Brake controll of the following drives is supported:

  •  SIMODRIVE 611U universal
  •  SINAMICS S120
  •  MASTERDRIVES Motion Control Plus
