  • Associated product(s)


Intuitive, efficient and future-proof - the new engineering software programming the S7 controller

The products are based on Totally Integrated Automation Portal, the integrated work environment for the engineering software of IA and DT. STEP 7 Professional V11 is the engineering system for all SIMATIC controller classes (S7-1200, S7-300, S7-400); it also supports the additional functions of the new firmware, 2.0, for the S7-1200 controller (49741884). STEP 7 Professional 2010 remains in the product catalog and will continue to be maintained and further developed.
SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V11 will be shipped together with SIMATIC WinCC Professional V11 (49740133) beginning 4/21/2011.
SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V11 is immediately available for delivery. STEP 7 Basic V11 will be delivered as the successor to STEP 7 Basic V10.5 beginning 05/17/2011.

Powerful programming editor for efficient engineering

STEP 7 V11 provides powerful programming editors for programming S7 controllers: Ladder Logic (LAD) and Function Block Diagram (FBD) are available for all controllers, structured text (SCL), instruction lists (STL) and sequencer programming (GRAPH) are additionally available for the S7-300 and S7-400 controller families. The user is provided optimal system support for all tasks with features such as Drag&Drop, project-wide cross-reference lists, IntelliSense, etc.. STEP 7 V11 thus enables the user to create his application with the highest efficiency. Even sophisticated technological features such as loop-control or position control can be easily implemented in engineering software.

Intuitive user interface with high user friendliness

Editors that have been adapted to configuration tasks and processes, and the latest Windows technologies form the basis for the intuitive operating concept of STEP 7 V11.

Embedding the various editors in a common working environment ensures that all the latest data is available to users and guarantees a clear overview of project data at all times. 

Clear configuration of devices and network topologies

The configuration and parameter assignment for the hardware and network is another key task when creating an application. STEP 7 V11 supports the user with photo-realistic rendering and configuration of hardware modules. In the network view, users can simply build links between the various automation devices. In a view of the various networks (Profinet, Profibus, AS interface, etc.). In the online status, the diagnostic information of the modules are clearly displayed, thus providing the user an optimal overview of his plant even during operation and the commissioning.

Portal view for quick, task-oriented starts

The introduction to the engineering is much easier through the portal view. Even a beginner can navigate quickly and accurately to each task.

Maintenance personnel can also quickly familiarize themselves in the online view directly in the portal view, without having to first load a project.

Intelligent Drag&Drop

Project data are often reused at different locations of a project and linked in various editors. Intelligent Drag&Drop automatically creates these links for users. This way, data can be "dragged" directly from the PLC into an HMI picture and connected there. It is also possible to Drag&Drop hardware addresses directly from the device view into the programming editors. Connections between the elements are created automatically by the system in the background.

Comprehensive library design

The system features a comprehensive library design that enables reuse and easy standardization of frequently-used program parts.

Elements such as blocks, tags, alarms, HMI pictures, picture objects, individual modules or complete stations, including their parameters can be stored in local or global libraries. This makes them available for other programming tasks.

Investment security

With STEP 7 Professional V11, projects from STEP 7 V5.5 / STEP 7 Professional 2010 can easily continued to be used by migrating the program code and hardware configuration.
