Configuration Control with SIMATIC S7
Configuration Control at module-level
The module-level Configuration Control allows for flexible configuration levels of the distributed and centralised I/O systems within a project. Thus a single STEP 7 project (maximum configuration) may be used for multiple configuration levels of I/O stations.
The examples below explain the Configuration Control on device level:

Configuration Control for IO systems
The Configuration Control for IO systems allows for flexible configuration levels and interconnections of stations within a single IO system. Thus a single STEP 7 project may be used for several concrete IO system versions as long as they can be derived from the maximum configuration.

Multiple use IO systems
Multiple Use IO systems means that a single IO system is used for several machines. Thus a PROFINET IO system created in a TIA Portal project may be used for several IO systems since the IP addresses and the device names are set by the IO controller and not in the TIA Portal project.
Select configuration safely
If the various configurations also consist of fail-safe modules and safety functions are added or deselected, it must be ensured that no dangerous states can arise as a result.
The actual configuration can, for example, be selected in a fail-safe data block. Since data cannot be remanently stored in error-proof data blocks, you must define the selection using start values and thus adapt the data block for different projects.
This application example shows you how you can select the actual configuration via the wiring of an F-DI module instead and thus do not have to adapt the user program and also do not require an engineering system during commissioning.
Library for Configuration Control (LCC)
The library LCC (Library Configuration Control) for the TIA Portal contains blocks and PLC data types for the following functions:
- Configuration control on a modular level
- Configuration control for IO systems
