The STEP 7PG program can be downloaded directly via the STEP 7 version number and operating system version from this page. STEP 7PG can be installed using the STEP 7PENU, STEP 7PENU-W or STEP 7PENU-W2 version numbers.
For Windows XP and Vista you can use STEP 7PG in a dual-boot configuration. The STEP 7PG program is also available as an option package. The STEP 7PG is available as either 32-bit or 64-bit application version.
With STEP 7PG you can define operating systems and operating system versions (operating system version that you are running) as well as network parameters (IP addresses, DNS or DHCP). The STEP 7PG program has been designed such that it does not require any configuration by hand, and is ready to use immediately.
STEP 7 Basic and STEP 7 Professional are the only licensed versions of SIMATIC STEP 7 that support the safety-related authorization functions. A free evaluation version of STEP 7 Basic, STEP 7 Professional, Distributed Safety, or Distributed Safety Enterprise is available.
Step 7 Safety is the seamless integration of safety in TIA Portal. However, safety-oriented programs can still be generated using STEP 7 and Distributed Safety. Programs created with STEP 7 Distributed Safety can be migrated to TIA Portal at any time.
If you’re using STEP 7 Safety Basic, you can purchase additional licenses for your automation by logging into your STEP 7 account, selecting the Purchase License tab, and selecting the Step 7 Safety Basic tab. From there, you can add licenses and purchase additional licenses. This can be used to purchase additional licenses for your STEP 7 Safety Basic licenses.
Another issue is that the number of licenses is now tied to the number of computers being used at one time. For example, the number of licenses needed for a single S7-1200 F basic Controller is currently limited to only 4 copies. The available licenses are divided into 4, 5, or 6 computers. To upgrade the number of licenses, you have to purchase additional licenses.
Abstract:This work presents the STEP 7 Safety Advanced (TIA Portal) option, which allows the integration of safety-oriented programs in the TIA Portal platform. This option supports users to build a safety-oriented program with the features of STEP 7 Safety. The option also provides the ability to implement safety in real time or offline. This option package is part of STEP 7 Enterprise, which can be used in combination with STEP 7 Safety Basic or STEP 7 Safety Advanced. 827ec27edc
