Update V3.0.2    

The performance features supported by the firmware V3.0.2 of the S7-1200 CPU include:

  • Enhancements in the field of web server security
  • Improved startup characteristics of the V3.0 CPU. After repeated project downloads or change of the IP address in RUN after a Power Cycle, the CPUs can change to the factory Test Mode. If a CPU starts in Test Mode, the hardware must be returned to the factory for repair. The CPU will indicated the Test Mode by permanent illumination of the yellow RUN/STOP LED, permanent illumination of the red ERROR LED and blinking of the yellow MAINT LED. The FW Update corrects this problem.
