Which modules support the "S7 Routing" function in S7 subnets?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

S7 Routing in S7 subnets is possible via Ethernet, PROFIBUS and MPI subnets. With the PG/PC you can reach devices beyond subnet limits to do the following, for example:

  • Download user programs
  • Download hardware configurations
  • Run test and diagnostic functions

Example for S7 Routing
The figure below shows the access from a PG to PROFIBUS via Ethernet.

Requirements for S7 Routing

  • The CPUs, CMs and CPs support routing.
  • All the devices using the gateway must receive information about which subnets can be reached via 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 via 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.
  • For S7-1500 CPUs: On the second

Note

  • If you send data from an Engineering Station that is connected to PROFINET to field devices via PROFIBUS, then you use the "Data record routing" function. Further 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. The Basic Panels are the exception here. The Basic Panels cannot be a routing destination.

Further Information

Entry 109474569gives instructions for making an S7 station configured in STEP 7 V5.x routing-compatible for an S7 station configured in the TIA Portal.
