  • Associated product(s)


The new STEP 5 V7.2 software for the programming of SIMATIC S5 PLCs is now available for delivery. Detailes are described below.
Start of shipment of other products affected by this release will take place by December 21, 2001.



General
:

STEP 5 V7.2 is compatible with STEP 5 V7.1 and replaces it. Shipment of STEP 5 V7.1 has now been discontinued. The existing order no.‘s remain unchanged, i.e. STEP 5 V7.2 will be shipped under the same order no.‘s as STEP 5 V7.1.

Please note the publications concerning the Russian upgrade in ProDIS under the Entry ID 4205179. The precondition concerning STEP 5 V7.11 published in this update also applies to STEP 5 V7.2x.

The results of the tests of the COM packages (Executability of COM Packages Under STEP 5 V7.2) are available from the update with Entry ID 9715828

What is new in STEP 5 V7.2?

  • Support of the new Microsoft Windows XP operating system

    STEP 5 V7.2 will execute under Windows XP. This support ensures that the optional packages (such as GRAPH 5/II), as well as the COM packages that can be started via STEP 5, will execute under Windows XP.

    Note: The SIMATIC S7 Industrial Software will support
    Windows XP by the end of 2002.


  • Support of the new USB Prommer

    The S5EPROM.EXE program can be used to read S5D files and transfer them to the USB Prommer with SIMATIC operating system means. This separate tool will only work with the USB Prommer and can also handle EPROM submodules generated with older STEP 5 versions. The "old" external Prommer and the on-board programming interface of the PGs are still supported by the operating system means integrated in STEP 5.

    Note: S5EPROM.EXE is a separate Windows application that runs independently of STEP 5 under Win 98 SE, ME, 2000 and XP operating systems (not started from STEP 5). Win NT4 and Win 95 operating systems are not supported as a result of lacking USB support.

  • Printing of S5 documents under Windows

    The S5PRINT.EXE program enables printing of STEP 5 documents on printers set for Windows.
    (Has already been available as Service Pack for STEP 5 V7.1x; For details please see the update with Entry ID 7484402)
  • Use of the CP5X11 interface by STEP 5

    This description enables the user to employ the CP5611 PCI card, the CP5511 PCMCIA card and the on-board interface of SIMATIC PGs (CP5611 or MPI ISA) as L2 interface for STEP 5.
    (Has already been available as Service Pack for STEP 5 V7.1x; For details please see the update with Entry ID 7484402)
