General

Do VIPA PLCs support IEC 60870-5-104?

This standard is not currently supported.

Can a VIPA PLC be updated with a SD Card?

Only SLIO PLCs support SD cards, all other PLCs require a MMC or MMC Plus card or at most 1GB.

All SD or MMC cards must be formatted as FAT16.

Do VIPA PLCs support PCS7?

The alarm processing is supported. All other functions are not tested.

Is it possible to use VIPA System 200V I/O modules with VIPA System 100V PLCs?

Yes, the modules from 200V and 100V could be used together.

The VIPA System 100V GSD files must be used to configure the 200V modules.

Do VIPA products meet the safety category according to EN954-1 Category 2 or EN ISO13849-1 Level C?

All of our latest products like CPUs and I/O modules do not have any certification and therefore neither fullfil the category according to EN954-1 nor any performance level (PL) according to EN ISO13849.

Do VIPA CPUs support Modbus RTU or Modbus TCP?

Select PLC models support Modbus RTU/ASCII and/or Modbus TCP. See the specific PLC datasheets for details or email info@vipausa.com.

HMIs

Is it possible to connect a printer to a VIPA Touch Panel?

Printer are supported on VIPA TPs via USB. Additionally the printer must support PCL5/6 or have an available Windows CE driver.

Can a VIPA TP with Zenon runtime be connected to a Profibus-DP Slave?

As Zenon does not have any Profibus DP drivers, it is necessary to connect via MPI driver. This could be easily done by adjusting the baud rate of the MPI dirver to the speed of the Profibus DP.

How can the project from Protool be loaded in to a VIPA OP03?

A VIPA USB/MPI adapter can be used to transfer a Protool project to a VIPA OP03. Select PC-Adapter as the PG/PC Interface

SLIO

Which software is required for the 053-1DN00 DeviceNet module?

The module can only be parameterized with RSNetWorx from Rockwell Automation.

Software

Can WinPLC7 be used for programming Siemens S7-300 CPUs?

WinPLC7 exists in 3 forms:

  1. WinPLC7 Demo: No support for communication with an external PLC, can only be used for test and simulation.
  2. WinPLC7 Lite: Support only for System 100V.
  3. WinPLC7 Full: Support for all VIPA Systems and S7-300/400 from Siemens. Does not support S7-400 Hardware Configuration.

100V

Are analog Signal Modules available for System 100V?

Roughly every module of the System 200V is compatible with System 100V. Up to four 200V Signal Modules can be connected to a 114 or 115 CPU.

What Profibus-DP baud rates are supported?

Transfer rates between 9.6 KBit/s and 12MBit/s are supported.

300S

Do VIPA NET CPUs support Clock Synchronization?

Yes, when the 6GK7 343-1EX11 Ethernet CP is configured.

Is it possible to create a MPI connection with XPUT & XGET between a Speed7 CPU and a Siemens S7-200?

It is not possible to create a MPI connection between a Speed7 CPU and a Siemens S7-200.

How many Profibus-DP slaves could be configured on a 31xC in Simatic Manager?

In Simatic Manager, only 32 slaves can be configured. In WinPLC7, up to 124 slaves can be configured.

What are the differences between Speed7 CPUs and 300V CPUs?

Speed7 CPUs: 4 Accumulator Levels, integrated PG/OP Ethernet Port

100V, 200V, 300V CPUs: 2 Accumulator Levels

Is a MMC card required for Speed7 CPUs?

No, the program will be stored in RAM for up to 30 days without power. A MMC should be used to back up the program if power is to be lost to the CPU for over 30 days.
