What’s New On
TIA Portal 17 Update 6
- When you use SENDDP/RCVDP command in Step 7, the safety program could not be loaded onto the CPU in RUN in connection with Fast Commissioning mode. This behaviour has been corrected. And more, the collective signature of your safety program remains unchanged
- If objects are grouped into faceplates, the group gets its own interface. Therefore, any existing interfaces of the individual objects are lost.
TIA 17 Upd5
- In TIA Step 7: From V17 onwards, multiuser will be supported in Openness. Therefore, it is also possible to display Add-Ins in a local session of a multiuser project. To do so, insert the “DisplayInMultiuser” element into the configuration file.
- In WinCC Unified: The simulation of projects containing faceplates with tags has been stabilized.
TIA Portal V17 update 4, Upd3, Upd2, Upd1
- On S7-1200/1500 program, if you monitor a program, it can significantly increase the cycle time of the CPU, depending on each case on the number of variables to be monitored and the number of loops used. However, when monitoring is switched on, a dialog box warns of the possible increase in the cycle time. Of course, in this dialog box, you can continue or abort the monitoring.
- With the TIA Portal v17 update for WinCC: The background colour property can also be set correctly for the following objects using VB script: Line, polyline, circular arc, ellipse arc and connector.
- And, in WinCC Unified v17: When exporting alarms, alarms with a multiline alarm text are also exported correctly. Further, the multiline alarm text is exported as single-line text.
