The option package PID Professional is now part of STEP 7 V13 and enables the use of the proven controller solutions with modular PID control and standard PID control in the TIA Portal.
The engineering software for PID Professional is included in STEP 7 starting with V13.
For the operation, a Floating License is required for every engineering station, which can be purchased as a download (Item No.: 6ES7860-1XA01-0XH5).
Furthermore, a Runtime Single License must be purchased for every loaded S7 CPU (Item No.: 6ES7860-1XA01-0XB0).
Should a license download not be possible, the purchase of the package "PID Professional for TIA Portal" (Item No.: 6ES7860-1XA02-0XA5) is recommended. The difference in price is compensated for by the supplied runtime license.
V11 licenses for PID Professional remain valid so that V11/V12 customers can use the software without an upgrade when switching to STEP 7 V13.
However, a switch from Standard/Modular PID Control from V5.1 to PID Professional is only possible by purchasing the upgrade license.
A floating license is required for every engineering station. A 21-day trial license is included in the delivery scope of STEP 7 V13.
The runtime license is required for every CPU on which PID Professional runs.
PID Professional will run on the following hardware systems:
- S7-300 (CPU 313 and higher)
