FAQ How do you copy the user program from the load memory into the main memory without PG with a S7-300 CPU with MC slot?

Description When a memory card with user program is slotted into a CPU, the CPU copies the runtime-relevant program sections into the main memory. Slot the memory card. Do an overall reset. CPU copies the runtime-relevant sections of the program from the load memory into the main memory. In particular this initializes the data blocks in the main memory (their initial values are reset). ...

FAQ What is a hardware interrupt and how do they work in the S7-400 system?

Instructions: Events can occur in the current process which require responses which are quicker than are possible in the current program cycle. Events also occur which do not last long enough to be identified in the current program cycle. Therefore, there is hardware interrupt processing in SIMATIC S7-400 controllers. ...

FAQ How do you delete the data on an MMC (micro memory card)?

Description Proceed as follows to delete the blocks on an MMC in the CPU. Slot the MMC to be deleted in the CPU. In the SIMATIC Manager switch to Online mode via 'View > Online' or via the relevant button. Select the block folder in the Online window. Mark all the blocks in the folder. Right-click and select 'Delete' (you can acknowledge the message indicating that system functions cannot be deleted). ...

FAQ How can you ensure full battery capacity of the Mobile Panel 277 (F) IWLAN even after a long period of time?

To ensure full capacity of your batteries even after a long period of time, you should let the battery empty completely during operation and then recharge it completely. If you do not use the mobile panel for a long period of time, then please remove the battery from the device before storing it switched off. Otherwise, the battery indicator on the Mobile Panel might show too low a value or the 'Empty battery' vibrating alarm might be set off even though it might still be possib ...

FAQ Why does the retentivity behavior of the S7-300 CPUs and C7 devices without MMC (Micro Memory Card) influence the contents of the variables?

  Description: The retentivity behavior of the separate variables is important for developers when creating programs. Developers usually have variables in their programs, whose contents are to be retained even during POWER OFF (retentive) and other variables that then have to be reset to a defined value (non-retentive). In SIMATIC STEP 7 developers can therefore configure retentive address areas for data, markers, S7 timers and S7 counters which they can then use for ret ...

FAQ What is the effect of the STEP 7 function "Copy RAM to ROM"?

  Description: This entry describes how the SIMATIC S7 function 'Copy RAM to ROM...' works. We will be looking at how it works on data and code blocks in SIMATIC S7-300 CPUs and C7 devices (with reference to the controller part) taking into account various storage concepts. Since deleting the EPROM memory is also partially executed via the 'Copy RAM to ROM...' function, this entry also includes an overview of how various storage media can be deleted. There is also a brie ...

FAQ S7-400: Saving the user program to FLASH EPROM when the module is slotted in the CPU

Instructions: You can proceed as follows when you load the user program to a FLASH card: Switch the mode selector of the CPU to STOP. Slot the FLASH card into the CPU (or the MC is already slotted). Do an overall reset of the CPU. Load the user program with STEP 7: Mark 'Blocks' in your project. Via 'PLC' -> 'Load user program to memory card' you save the program to the MC. ...
