additional software (burning software). This software is included on the CD supplied with the
device. Insert the CD in the drive, run setup and follow the instructions on the screen.
NOTICE
When first starting the burner software, no data carriers should be inserted in the drive. This
is because data carriers with errors can interrupt the automatic hard drive recognition. This
makes it impossible to correctly display the possible burner functions.
Notes on burning optical data carriers
CAUTION
Danger of data errors when burning data carriers!
Burning is permissible only in an undisturbed environment, i.e. shock and vibration stress
must be avoided. Because of heavy fluctuation in the quality of CD-Rs, data may be
corrupted in a burning session, even if no error message is initially displayed. The written
data can only be verified by comparing these with the source. To be on the safe side, data
should be verified after every burning session. When backing up an image, the data should
be restored to the hard disk and the system should be rebooted from the hard disk.

Compact Flash card (optional)
NOTICE
We highly recommend that use use approved SIMATIC Compact Flash cards. No liability
can be accepted if functions are impaired due to the use of third-party cards.
Design
A Compact Flash card can be used on-board and in an extra mount. This mount replaces the
usual hard disk mount.
Characteristics
The Flash drive with Compact Flash card reacts just like any standard IDE hard disk preset
as a master. No special driver software is required to operate the Flash drive.
Even though the Flash drive reacts like a hard disk on the outside, there are restrictions due
to the limited number of write cycles on Flash memory. The service life of a Compact Flash
card depends on the number of write access to the medium - read accesses have no effect.
To maximize the service life of Compact Flash cards, take care that the writing to the cards
is kept to a minimum.
For example, you can do this by ensuring that:
● Swap files of the operating system and application are not located on the Compact Flash
card.
● Cyclic writing is avoided.
Operating systems such as MS-DOS and Windows XP Embedded allow this, for example.
The Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) can be used with Windows XP Embedded, for example.
This minimizes the number of write accesses to the Flash drive or avoids it entirely.
Booting from the Flash drive
A operating system must be installed before you can boot from the Flash drive. You will find
the procedure for installing an operating system in section "Installing Windows (Page 93)".

Alarm, error, and system messages
12.1
Boot error messages
BIOS first performs a Power On Self Test (POST) within the boot routine to verify proper
operation of certain functional units of the PC. The boot sequence is interrupted immediately
if fatal errors occur.
If the POST does not return an error, the BIOS initializes and tests further functional units. In
this startup phase, the graphics controller is initialized and any error messages are output to
the screen.
The error messages output by the system BIOS are listed below. For information on error
messages output by the operating system or programs, refer to the corresponding manuals.

Remedy
Check your computer configuration:
 If the computer configuration corresponds with factory state,
please contact your technical support team.
 If the computer configuration has changed, restore the
original factory settings. Remove all third-party modules,
then restart the PC. If the error no longer occurs, the thirdparty module was the cause of the fault. Replace this
module with a Siemens module or contact the module
supplier.
Contact Technical Support if the PC still crashes.

Display a temperature error by means of the DiagBase application
Cause
Temperature errors do not occur during the normal approved use of the device. If the
monitoring software (DiagBase or DiagMonitor) indicates a temperature error and the symbol
in the status display changes from green to red, check the following:
● Are the fan apertures covered?
● Has the fan has failed (check speed display in the monitoring software)?
● Is the ambient temperature higher than the allowed value (see technical data)?
● Is the total output of the power supply within the specified limit?
● Are the heatsinks inside the PC covered with dust?
Remedy
The temperature fault is stored until the temperature drops back below the temperature
threshold and you acknowledge the error message in the monitoring software.
● Click on the button with the "small broom" icon.
When the error message has been acknowledged, the "TEMP" LED goes out, the title bar
changes in the monitoring software and the symbol in the status bar changes from red to
green.
● Restart the PC if you have not installed the monitoring software.

Exclusive interrupt in PIC mode
The interrupts are automatically assigned to the slots at system startup due to the default
settings in system BIOS.
Several slots may share the same interrupt, depending on the system configuration. This
functionality is known as interrupt sharing. Exclusive interrupts are not available in PIC
mode. Disable specific system resources in order to obtain exclusive interrupts. BIOS
assigns the PIC interrupts at random during restart of the system.

Addresses used by SRAM
The battery-buffered SRAM uses a 2 MB memory address area that can be read via the PCI
register.
The address area is dynamic and is set by the BIOS during the enumeration. The base
address of the SRAM can obtained either using the resource information of the Device
Manager (device name: Standard RAM Controller) or in the PCI configuration address area
from the device with device ID "110Ah, VendorID 4040h" and Offset "10h"
16.3.2.6
Accessing addresses of LEDs, watchdog and battery status
These addresses cannot be accessed directly.
The SIMATIC PC DiagBase software provides an API programming interface for this that
you will find on the DVD "Documentation & Drivers" in the folder "\Drivers\DiagBase\program
files\Siemens\DiagnosticManagement".

Enabling AMT, basic configuration
Procedure
For security reasons, AMT is not enabled on new devices.
To enable AMT, follow these steps:
1. Connect the AMT PC with the LAN.
2. If necessary, first reset AMT to the default status (see section "Unconfigure").
3. To access the BIOS, press the <F2> key while the device is booting.
4. In the Advanced menu, enable "Intel AMT Support", "Intel AMT Setup Prompt" and "Intel
AMT Password Write".
5. Exit the BIOS with the <F10> key "Save and Exit". The AMT PC restarts.
6. To access the MEBx, press the <Ctrl+P> keyboard shortcut
7. In the login dialog, enter the standard password "admin".
8. Change the default password. The new password must include the following characters:
– In total at least eight characters
– One upper case letter
– One lower case letter
– One number
– One of the special characters ! @ # $ % ^ & *
Note
The underscore _ and the space characters are valid password characters, however
they do not increase password complexity.
9. Enable "Intel (R) AMT Configuration > Manageability Feature Selection".
10.Enable "Intel (R) ME General Settings > Activate Network Access".
16.5.3
Advanced settings
The BIOS and the MEBx contain the most important basic settings for AMT. Additional tools
are necessary if you want to make more advanced settings. If required, these must be
downloaded from the relevant manufacturer's site. For information on the options and use of
these tools, refer to the relevant documentation of the manufacturer.
● Manageability Commander and other tools of the Intel DTK (Manageability Developer
Tool Kit): Programs from the Intel DTK that you can download from the Internet at
"http://software.intel.com/en-us/manageability".
● AMT Web interface: For encrypted connections, the URL of the Web interface is "https://
<Fully qualified domain name>:16993" and for unencrypted connections "http://<IP
address>:16992".
● WinRM: A command line program that is part of Windows as of Windows Vista. This tool
can be downloaded for older Windows versions.

Resetting with Unconfigure
Note
If the AMT PC still has its factory settings, for example has just been purchased, you can
skip this section.
If you have already configured AMT previously, it is best to discard all the previous AMT
settings made in the MEBx.
NOTICE
All previous settings in the management engine are deleted.
Correct operation in the plant may be at risk.
Note down all the settings in the MEBx. Make the settings again as necessary following
Unconfigure.
To reset the AMT settings, follow these steps:
1. Enable the "Unconfigure ME" entry in "Advanced > Active Management Technology
Support" in the BIOS.
2. Exit the BIOS with the <F10> key "Save and Exit". The AMT PC restarts.
3. After the restart, a user prompt appears asking whether you really want to discard all the
settings in the management engine:
4. Confirm with "Y". On a German keyboard, this means pressing the <Z> key.
The device continues to boot with the factory settings of the management engine.
16.5.5
Obtaining the network address
Introduction
To connect the AMT PC with the AMT server, the network address that uniquely localizes
the AMT server on the AMT PC must be entered.
Procedure
If DHCP is set for the automatic assignment of the network address in "Network Setup" in
the MEBx of the AMT PC, the network address is not fixed.
To check the network address, follow these steps:
1. If the AMT server uses the same network address as the operating system of the AMT
PC (most common situation): You can obtain the address of the AMT server in the
command line in Windows using "ipconfig" and in UNIX using "ifconfig".
2. If the AMT server and operating system do not use the same network address, ask your
network administrator for the address you have been assigned.

ESD guidelines
B
Definition of ESD
All electronic modules are equipped with large-scale integrated ICs or components. Due to
their design, these electronic elements are highly sensitive to overvoltage, and thus to any
electrostatic discharge.
The electrostatic sensitive components/modules are commonly referred to as ESD devices.
This is also the international abbreviation for such devices.
ESD modules are identified by the following symbol:
CAUTION
ESD devices can be destroyed by voltages well below the threshold of human perception.
These static voltages develop when you touch a component or electrical connection of a
device without having drained the static charges present on your body. The electrostatic
discharge current may lead to latent failure of a module, that is, this damage may not be
significant immediately, but in operation may cause malfunction.
Electrostatic charging
Anyone who is not connected to the electrical potential of their surroundings can be
electrostatically charged.
The figure below shows the maximum electrostatic voltage which may build up on a person
coming into contact with the materials indicated. These values correspond to IEC 801-2
specifications.

Basic protective measures against electrostatic discharge
● Ensure good equipotential bonding:
When handling electrostatic sensitive devices, ensure that your body, the workplace and
packaging are grounded. This prevents electrostatic charge.
● Avoid direct contact:
As a general rule, only touch electrostatic sensitive devices when this is unavoidable (e.g.
during maintenance work). Handle the modules without touching any chip pins or PCB
traces. In this way, the discharged energy can not affect the sensitive devices.
Discharge your body before you start taking any measurements on a module. Do so by
touching grounded metallic parts. Always use grounded measuring instruments.

Glossary
Module
Modules are plug-in units for PLCs, programming devices or PCs. They are available as
local modules, expansion modules, interfaces or mass storage (Mass storage module).
Motherboard
The motherboard is the core of the computer. Here, data are processed and stored, and
interfaces and device I/Os are controlled and managed.
NEC Class 2
The "NEC", National Electrical Code, is the USA collection of regulations that generally
correspond to German VDE 0100 standards. All USA standards governing the safety of
electrical equipment and corresponding "deviations" in IEC standards are based on NEC in
terms of their country-specific requirements.
NEC Class 2 specifies higher safety requirements for protection against electric shock and
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements for fire protection. Power supplies
operating within the range from 20 VDC to 30 VDC must be equipped with an internal current
limiting circuit which safely prevents output power higher than 100 VA.
Operating system
Generic term which describes all functions for controlling and monitoring user program
execution, distribution of system resources to the user programs and the operating mode in
cooperation with the hardware (for example Windows XP Professional).
Packet writing
The CD-RW is used as a disk medium. The CD can then be read only by packet–writing
compatible software or has to be finalized. Finalization of a CD closes the CD within an
ISO9660 shell. You can still write to the CD-RW several times in spite of finalization. Not all
CD drives can read packet-written CDs . There are restrictions to using this method in
general data transfer.
PATA
Interface for hard disk drives and optical drives, with parallel data transmission rate up to 100
Mbps.
PC card
Trademark of the Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA).
Designation for auxiliary cards that conform with PCMCIA specifications. A PC card that has
roughly the size of a credit card can be plugged into a PCMCIA slot. Version 1 specifies
cards of Type I with a thickness of 3.3 millimeters, which are designed mainly for use as
external memory. Version 2 of the PCMCIA specification also defines cards of Type II with a
thickness of 5 mm and cards of Type III with a thickness of 10.5 mm. Type II cards can
realize devices such as modems, fax cards and network interface cards. Type III cards are
equipped with devices that require more space, for example wireless communications
modules, or rotary storage media such as hard disk drives, for example.

PC/104 / PC/104-Plus
Two bus architectures are especially fashionable today in the industrial world. PC/104 and
PC/104-Plus. Both are standard in single-board computers of the PC class. The electrical
and logical layout of the two bus systems is identical with ISA (PC/104) and PCI (PC/104Plus). Software cannot usually detect a difference between them and normal desktop bus
systems. Their advantage is the compact design and the resulting space they save.
PCMCIA
Association consisting of approx. 450 member companies of the computer industry whose
focus is set on providing worldwide standards for miniaturization and flexible use of PC
expansion cards in order to provide basic technologies to the market.
PEG interface
PCI Express for Graphics. Graphics interface with 16 PCIe lanes for expansions with
graphics modules.
PIC mode
Peripheral interrupt controller. 15 interrupt lines are available.
Pixel
PixElement (picture point). The pixel represents the smallest element that can be reproduced
on-screen or on a printer.
Plug&Play
Generally, a reference to the ability of a computer to automatically configure the system for
communication with peripheral devices (for example monitors, modems or printers). The
user can plug in a peripheral and "play" it at once without manually configuring the system. A
Plug&Play PC requires both a BIOS that supports Plug&Play and a Plug&Play expansion
card.
POST
Self-test performed by the BIOS after the computer is switched on. Performs a RAM test and
a graphics controller test, for example. The system outputs audible signals (beep codes) if
the BIOS detects any errors; the relevant message indicating cause of error is output on the
screen.
PROFIBUS/MPI
Process Field Bus (standard bus system for process applications)

PROFINET
PROFINET is the name of the standard for Industrial Ethernet developed and maintained by
the PROFIBUS user organization. PROFINET unites protocols and specifications with which
Industrial Ethernet meets the requirements of industrial automation technology.
Programmable controller (PLC)
The programmable controllers (PLC) of the SIMATIC S5 system consist of a central
controller, one or more CPUs, and various other modules (e.g. I/O modules).
PXE server
A Preboot Execution Environment server is part of a network environment and can provide
software to connected computers even before they boot. This can involve operating system
installations or servicing tools, for example.
RAID
Redundant Array of Independent Disks: Data storage system which is used to save data and
the corresponding error correction codes (parity bits, for example) to at least two hard disk
volumes in order to enhance reliability and performance. The hard disk array is controlled by
management programs and a hard disk controller for error correction. The RAID system is
usually implemented in network servers.
RAL
Restricted Access Location: Installation of the device in a production facility with restricted
access, for example, a locked control cabinet.
Recovery CD
Contains the tools for configuring hard disks and the Windows operating system.
Reset
Hardware reset: Reset/restart of the PC using a button/switch.
Restart
Warm restart of a computer without switching the power off (Ctrl + Alt + Del)
Restore DVD
The Restore DVD is used to restore the system partition or the entire hard disk to factory
state if the system has crashed. The bootable DVD contains all the necessary image files.
You can also create a boot disk allowing restoration via the network.

ROM
Read-Only Memory ROM is a read-only memory in which every memory location can be
addressed individually. The programs or data are permanently stored and are not lost in the
event of a power failure.
S.M.A.R.T
The Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART or S.M.A.R.T.) is an
industry standard integrated in storage media. It makes for permanent monitoring of
important parameters and early detection of imminent problems.
SATA
Serial ATA Interface for hard disk drives and optical drives with serial data transmission rates
of up to 300 Mbps.
SCSI interface
Small Computer System Interface Interface for connecting SCSI devices such as hard disk
drives or optical drives.
Session at once
In session at once, the CD can be written to both with an audio session and a data session.
The two sessions are written to at once (as in disc at once).
SETUP (BIOS Setup)
A program in which information about the device configuration (that is the configuration of
the hardware on the PC/PG) is defined. The device configuration of the PC/PG is preset with
defaults. Changes must therefore be entered in the SETUP if a memory expansion, new
modules or a new drive are added to the hardware configuration.
SSD (Solid State Drive)
A Solid State Drive is a drive that can be installed like any other drive; it does not contain a
rotating disk or other moving parts because only semiconductor memory chips of similar
capacity will be used. This design makes SSDs more rugged, provides shorter access times,
low energy consumption and rapid data transfer.
STEP 7
Programming software for the creation of user programs for SIMATIC S7 controllers.
Track-at-once
In track-at-once recording, a CD can be written to in bits in several sessions if the CD was
not closed.
