Compatibility Tool for Automation and Drive Technology

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The Compatibility Tool is a function provided by the Industry Online Support with which you can select compatible software products or check the compatibility of existing configurations.

Compatibility Tool
With this tool, you can easily get the compatibility statements for your automation and drive technology. The tool supports you in questions regarding the compatibility of various hardware and software products.

Needless to say, that you can download your compatibility lists for your individual product lines as an Excel file. 

Note: The database is constantly being revised and extended.

Brief instructions:

  1. First choose a "master component“ (WinCC, PCS 7, STEP 7, ...)
  2. Then add further components (e.g., operating systems, virus scanners, …)
  3. Now click on the "Show Compatibility" button
  4. The compatibility statement is displayed immediately

A detailed description of the tool is available in the Online help in the following table.
