The "Getting Started" documentation provides quick instructions for first-time users to acquaint them with the CFC program package. An tutorial is divided into several tasks and guides you step-by-step from the simples configuration work to the creation of a chart with chart I/Os and the generation of the block in the CFC.
You can find a completed example in the SIMATIC Manager with the menu command File > Open... in the "Example Projects" tab under the file name ZDt04_01_CFC (German).
This example assumes that the CFC is used in the STEP 7 environment. The STEP 7 basis package, SCL and CFC must be installed. The target system is S7-300 or S7-400.
You create the "CFCBSP_2" example project described in the following with the SIMATIC Manager.
