Dear sir,
thanks a lot for the helpful information, I make all the steps using S7-1500 and Wincc V7.5 all things are ok but the system diagnostics control does not update automatically we should exist runtime and open again to update.
and also I need to know how to make faults by using PLC Sim on S7-1500.

Hey Ali, welcome to the forum :wave:

That’s a great question. Perhaps @jowett34 can help.

For your second point, “how to make faults by using PLC Sim on S7-1500” can you please elaborate? We might be able to write a tutorial in the future on this topic.

Hi Ali, can I ask whether you’re running a service pack and what updates you’re currently using with WinCC V7.5? I know from experience that V7.5 has a compatibility issue with diagnostics.
