This cost free tool equalizes the difference between INSEVIS devices and Siemens-configuration, so that you can address INSEVIS periphery and use INSEVIS communication interfaces with SIMATIC®- Manager or TIA-Portal®. All the configurations of additional functions will be done here too and are permanently checked for addressing errors by the program itself.
The whole configuration is done intuitively in a graphic way. Periphery modules were placed on their slots by drag ́n drop, decentral peripheries to the CAN-interface of the CPU. Than it will configured and parametrized and the whole configuration will be compiled into a binary file. This binary will downloaded by Ethernet into the PLC hardware system blocks. The programming by SIMATIC®- Manager or TIA-Portal® will be not affected by this procedure.
The mapping of CAN-specific data to S7-area allows a very clear and simple integration of external periphery by using the comfortable EDS (ElectronicDataSheet of CAN-slaves) -import function. This makes the „ConfigStage“ to one of the finest examples of an practical, smart and simple integration of external CANopen®-slaves into the S7-world.
