Installing and connecting the device
3.3 Connecting the device
Connecting the device to networks
The options for integrating the device into existing or planned system environments and
networks are as follows:
The integrated Ethernet interfaces can be used for communication and for data exchange
with automation devices such as SIMATIC S7.
For this, you need TIA Portal, STEP 7, WinCC, WinCC flexible, WinAC and SIMATIC NET.
To use the Windows reboot with the SIMATIC CPU1507S (F) Software Controller on the
SIMATIC IPC427E, assign the Ethernet interfaces X2 or X3 to the PC station in STEP 7.
You can establish a network between the device and other PCs via Industrial Ethernet. The
on-board LAN interfaces are (Twisted-Pair) TP interfaces that support data transmission
rates of 10/100/1000 Mbps.
You need a category 6 Ethernet cable for operation at 1000 Mbps.
PROFINET can be operated via:
● Standard Ethernet interfaces (RT)
Use this software package to create, operate and configure an innovative network for Field &
Control level. Information on this can be found on the SIMATIC NET Manual Collection CD.
The software package and the documentation are not included in the product package.
You will find additional information in the catalog and on the Internet at Industry Mall, the
