You can write your STEP7 program in STL, FBD or LAD.
After this you can upload the written blocks to the on-board Software-PLC to simulate your program.
Use the PLC Mask window to change the state of the digital and analog inputs and watch the results.
The intellisense window of the block editor shows only suitable addresses- so you can enter your code more efficiently.
The live address location window shows you all locations of the current address in the block editor.
The variable monitoring tool has a own web server. So you can watch the variables even on a smart phone or any other mobil device with
a web-browser. You can also enable the speaker symbol in this table to here changing addresses over a wireless headset.
The integrated Software-PLC has a TCP/IP interface. You can connect a TP/OP to it to test your TP/OP functionality.
In the Pro-Edition of WinSPS-S7 you can also transfer the blocks into a real S7-PLC.
Furthermore you have all tools for diagnostic or troubleshooting purposes.
You can configurate your PLC with the integrated hardware configurator.
*** Commands per OB1-Cycle: For example "A Q0.0" is one (1) command.The starter edition supports up to 1000 commands in the PLC program.
