The information in this Readme file supersedes information in other documentation.

What's new in S7-PLCSIM V14 SP1 Update 1

S7-PLCSIM V14 SP1 Update 1 allows you to install S7-PLCSIM V14 SP1 without first uninstalling S7-PLCSIM V14.

High Speed Counter functionality for S7-15xxC (compact) PLCs

It is not possible to simulate the functionality of High Speed Counters (HSCs) for S7-15xxC PLCs.
S7-PLCSIM does not simulate specialized I/O modules or onboard I/O for compact CPUs. S7-PLCSIM only provides
process image and direct access simulation of I/O registers.

Additional information about HMI Accessible tags

This entry provides further information regarding the online help topic "Error conditions and limitations > Specific error
conditions and limitations > HMI Accessible tags".
In STEP 7, tags are checked as "Accessible from HMI" by default. In the following image, the HMI accessibility for the tags
"Static_3" and "Static_4" has been unchecked:

After you perform a download from STEP 7 to S7-PLCSIM, you will note that the tags "Static_3" and "Static_4" are not
available in S7-PLCSIM:

If you want to work with these tags in S7-PLCSIM, simply check the box for the tags in STEP 7 and perform another
download to S7-PLCSIM.

Simulating HMI connections

When you simulate HMI connections, the simulated HMI firmware version must be or higher.

Incompatible diagnostic status for simulated S7-1500 PLCs with firmware version 1.8
When you simulate an S7-1500 PLC with firmware version 1.8, S7-PLCSIM might display the diagnostic status
"Incompatible". You can ignore this status message because your simulation will function normally.

Scan cycle overflow

It is possible to overflow the S7-PLCSIM cyclic event queue when your simulation contains cyclic interrupts. Due to the
speed of S7-PLCSIM in relation to the speed of actual hardware, your simulation might not be able to process cyclic OBs
within the cycle time you specified. S7-PLCSIM provides visual notification of an overflow by means of diagnostic buffer
messages and a red error icon in the project tree.
If the main scan cycle overflows, go to "Options > Settings > Cycle time monitoring". You can then take one of two actions:
● Select the check box for "Disable scan cycle monitoring".
● Select the check box for "Specify maximum cycle time" and then input a larger value in the "Maximum cycle time" box.
You can enter a time up to 60000 ms.
If a cyclic interrupt OB overflows, increase the cyclic time for the OB in STEP 7.
After taking any of these actions, you must perform another download from STEP 7 for the change to take effect.
