FAQ How can you read input words in the address range from 9999 to 65535 with the SIMATIC S7-1200/S7-1500 via Modbus RTU?

In STEP 7 V14 (TIA Portal) and higher the "Modbus_Master" instruction provides with V2.4 and higher for SIMATIC S7-1200/S7-1500 the option of reading out the extended address range (9999 - 65535) of input words (function code 04) of a Modbus slave.

ID: 109474481
FAQ How do you diagnose a rolling bearing with the SM 1281 taking into account the bearing data and fault frequencies?

The SM 1281 can analyze the bearing components of a rolling bearing in such a way that you can obtain information about how urgent it might be to make replacements. For this the SM 1281 needs bearing-related data as described in this entry.

For products: 6AT8007-1AA10-0AA0
ID: 109761652
FAQ When changes are made in the standard user program, why do you have to load in the STOP mode with fail-safe S7-1200F/S7-1500F CPUs?

The following three scenarios describe the cause and remedy for avoiding loading in the STOP mode.

ID: 109761403
FAQ In STEP 7 (TIA Portal), how do you change the pulse length for the pulse width modulation (PWM) in the user program of the S7-1200 CPU?

For this you have to call and parameterize the instructions "MOVE" and "CTRL_PWM" in your program. You enable the pulse generator in the device configuration.

ID: 63200733
FAQ How do you diagnose IO access errors with the S7-1200?

In STEP 7 (TIA Portal) you program the diagnostic error interrupt OB and enable the necessary functions for the module to be diagnosed.

ID: 42781105
FAQ How do you download the 3D, CAx and ePLAN data for the SIMATIC products?

You can use the CAx download manager to access the latest product data for your CAD or CAE system.

ID: 89671877
FAQ How do you monitor the output current of the ET 200SP Power Supply in the user program of the CPU?

The ET 200 SP PS is a primary-clocked power supply for connection to a 1-phase AC power supply.

ID: 109758948
FAQ How do you configure and use IP multicasts for UDP connections with Industrial Ethernet CPs / CMs?

IP multicast is a special connection option that with Industrial Ethernet CPs / CMs can only be supported or configured for UDP connections (UDP - User Datagram Protocol). IP multicast was introduced for sending messages from one station to multiple partner stations.
