Today's PG and PC software requires increasingly more powerful programming devices. Depending on his needs, the user can decide to increase the working memory, install a higher capacity hard disk (or an additional one), or to install other special hard- ware that will improve the functionality of his programming device. Whether or not such a modification is feasible must be decided on an individual basis. Your SIMATIC contact or the service engi- neer at your local Siemens office will be happy to provide advice (a list of contacts can be found in SIMATIC Info 95/ ). In general, it is technically possible to upgrade the hardware of the above-listed programming devices. The programming devices can also be upgraded for the programming of SIMATIC S7 PLCs. The STEP 7 programming software necessitates the following basic configuration of the hardware: Microprocessor: Minimum: INTEL 80386 SX or DX Recommended: INTEL 80486 SX or DX _Please note:_ STEP 7 will only execute on systems with an 80486 micro- processor (or better) with a satisfactory speed. The S7 software will execute on 80386 systems in principle, but the performance is very low, so that we discourage the upgrading of such units for S7. Working memory: Min. 8 Mbytes, recommended: 16 MBytes Hard disk: STEP 7 memory requirements: approx. 50 MBytes STEP 7 + Word f.W. 3.11: approx. 80 MBytes On-line interface: MPI/PPI Programming interface: For SIMATIC Memory Cards Please also note that for reasons of warranty the installation of hard disks may only be carried out by an authorized Siemens Service and Maintenance Centre. -------------------------------
In order to protect technical infrastructures, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art IT security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions constitute one element of such a concept. For more information about cyber security, please visithttps://www.siemens.com/cybersecurity#Ouraspiration.
