  • Associated product(s)

The changed program structure of the TIA Portal makes alterations necessary for the implementation of SCL sources created in STEP 7 V5.x. Commands and expressions in the program code of an SCL source must be adapted to the valid rules in the TIA Portal.

The SCL Converter supports you when converting SCL source files from STEP 7 V5.x to STEP 7 V1x (TIA). In this way, the susceptibility to errors is reduced and SCL source files can be easier transformed and imported into the TIA Portal and be compiled. Possible reworks at your SCL sources should be reduced to a minimum.
