Compatibility Tool for Automation and Drive Technology
Compatibility information for Automation and Drive Technology is available in the Compatibility Tool of the Industry Online Support.
The tool is designed to support you in questions about the compatibility of various hardware and software products.
The database is constantly being revised and extended. In addition, you can use the tool centrally to download the compatibility lists of the separate product lines as Excel files.
The table below includes the links to the Compatibility Tool.
To query the compatibility information you require, you must first choose a "master component" (WinCC, PCS 7, STEP 7, ...). To these "master components" you can add more components (such as operating systems, virus scanners, ...). Once you have chosen the components you require, you can have the compatibility list shown by clicking the "Show compatibility" button. A detailed description of the tool is available in the Online_Help.pdf in the following table.
