Which modules support the S7 routing function?
S7 Routing is the transfer of data beyond network boundaries. In this case you can send data from a sender to a receiver over various networks.
S7 Routing is possible over PROFINET and PROFIBUS subnets. With the PG/PC you can reach devices over and beyond subnet limits in order to do the following, for example:
- Download user programs
- Download a hardware configuration
- Execute test and diagnostic functions
Requirements for S7 Routing
- The CPUs, CMs and CPs support routing.
- All accessible devices in a network have been configured and downloaded in STEP 7 in one project.
- All the devices associated with the gateway must receive information about which subnets can be reached over which routes (= routing information). The devices receive the routing information through downloading the hardware configuration in the CPUs.
In the case of a topology with several subnets you must keep to the following order when downloading. First you download the hardware configuration into the CPU(s), which are connected to the same subnet as the PG/PC; then you download the CPUs of the other subnets one after the other starting with the nearest subnet through to the most distant.
- The PG/PC with which you wish to set up a connection through a gateway must be assigned to the subnet to which it is physically connected.
- For PROFIBUS subnets: The CPU must either be configured as a DP master or if it is configured as DP slave, the check box "Test, commissioning and routing" must be checked in the Properties of the DP interface of the DP slave.

- If you send data from an Engineering Station that is connected to PROFINET to field devices over PROFIBUS, then you use the "Data record routing" function. Information about the "Data record routing" function is available in Entry ID 7000978.
- The target station does not have to support the S7 Routing function.
