STEP 7 Micro/DOS is now available with version 1.3. The new version         

offers the following new functions:                                         


- Support of the new S7-200 CPUs 210, 215 and 216.                          

- Support of the 13 new instructions of the CPUs 215/216.                   

- Access/editing of the complete variables memory in the CPUs 215/216.      

- Auto baud rate selection for PPI (9.6/19.2 kbaud).                        

- Expanded PLC-Utility No:10 (PLC Communications Parameters).

A special feature of STEP 7 Micro/DOS is its low performance requirement    

on the hardware. It will execute from MS-DOS 5.0 or higher in a DOS window  

under Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and Windows 95.    

A 286 microprocessor with 1 Mbyte main memory (of which at least 580        

Kbytes must be in the lower memory area) and 5 Mbytes of free hard disk     

space are sufficient as PG or PC hardware.                                  


The user manual has been reworked. The new version has to be ordered sepa-  






STEP 7-Micro/DOS V1.3 is fully compatible with all earlier Micro/DOS ver-   

sions. All programs that were generated with versions V1.0, V1.1, V1.2.1    

and V1.2.2 can be imported under STEP 7-Micro/DOS V1.3 and will execute.    





The STEP 7-Micro/DOS update package (Catalog No. 6ES7 810-2DA00-0YX3) is    

available to upgrade all older Micro/DOS versions (V1.0, V1.1, V1.2.1,      

V1.2.2) to version 1.3. A prerequisite for the installation of the update   

is a version 1.0, 1.1, 1.2.1 or 1.2.2 on the hard disk.
