Can a Step®7 project edited for Saia PCD® xx7 series run again on an S7?

FAQ #100037


Basically, yes. The operating system of the Saia PCD® xx7 series interprets Step®7 STL code. This means that a Step®7 program is executable in all STL based languages, such as LAD, FDB, Higraph, SCL and S7-Graph, and therefore also on a Simatic controller. Program modifications will be necessary when calling system functions specific to Saia (e.g. special modules, such as for communications or to access peripherals that are not present). For more details on system functions, see Technical Information TI 26/353 (xx7 operating system) under
