WD monitoring times
The monitoring times are defined as follows:
Normal mode: 94 ms, 210 ms, 340 ms, 460 ms, 590 ms, 710 ms, 840 ms and 960 ms.
Macro mode: 2s, 4s, 6s, 8s, 16s, 32s, 48s and 64s.
Note
The watchdog is retriggered if the monitoring time is changed at the active watchdog (that is
while the watchdog is running)!
9.2
Enhanced Write Filter (EWF)
Purpose and function
The EWF (Enhanced Write Filter) is a function that is only available for Windows Embedded
operating systems. It provides write protection that can be configured by the user.
The Enhanced Write Filter enables you to boot Windows Embedded Standard from readonly media (e.g. CD-ROM), assign write protection attributes to partitions, and customize file
system performance (when using CompactFlash cards, for example).
EWF can be used to minimize write access to CompactFlash cards. This is important
because the write cycles on CompactFlash cards are limited due to technical reasons. We
therefore recommend using EWF if you work with CompactFlash cards.
CAUTION
Activate only one write filter per partition - otherwise you may incur data loss.
Both EWF and FBWF are preinstalled in the SIMATIC IPC images.
Ensure that only one write filter is enabled on a partition, otherwise you may incur data loss.
Note
In Windows Embedded Standard, the Enhanced Write Filter is disabled by default. After the
operating system has been set up, you should back up your date and then enable the EWF.
Set EWF
The EWFMGR.EXE program can be used to install, enable or disable the EWF. Use the
command prompt to call up the program. The following functions are available:
Function
Command
Write-protect drive C: Switching on
ewfmgr c: -enable

Note
The EWF commands affecting the write protection do not become active until after the next
booting process.
Note
The EWF command ewfmgr c: -commitanddisable cannot be used in combination with the –
Live option (invalid entry, for example: ewfmgr c: -commitanddisable –live).
Special features for the use of Enhanced Write Filters (EWF)
● In the event of a power failure, if the EWF is enabled changes made after the boot
sequence on drive C: are lost.
To prevent data loss in the event of a power failure, the use of a USV is recommended.
● You can save the files in the EWF RAM overlay to the CompactFlash card or the hard
disk before you shut down the device. To do so, enter the following command in the
command prompt:
ewfmgr c: -commitanddisable
Then restart the system.
ewfmgr c: -enable
Then restart the system.
Note
When the system is set to automatically adjust the clock for daylight saving time adjustment,
systems without central time management and with activated EWF set the clock forward or
backward by one hour in the daylight saving time or standard time period each time the
system boots.
The reason for this behavior is that Windows Embedded Standard 2009 has a registry entry
that detects if the clock has been adjusted for daylight saving time. Since this file is also
protected against modification by the EWF, the marker is lost during the boot sequence and
the adjustment is made again.
We therefore recommend that you deactivate the automatic adjustment and change the
clock manually.
Procedure:
1. Switch off the EWF filter (ewfmgr c: -commitanddisable) and reboot the system.
2. Deactivate automatic adjustment in the Control Panel. In the Time Zone tab opened with
the menu command Start > Control Panel > Date and Time, remove the check mark from
the "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes" check box.
3. Enable EWF again (ewfmgr c: -enable) and reboot the system.

9.3 File Based Write Filter (FBWF)
9.3
File Based Write Filter (FBWF)
Purpose and function
With the Feature Pack 2007 for Windows XP Embedded, Microsoft introduced a second
write filter, File Based Write Filter (FBWF).
In contrast to EWF, which protects partitions based on sectors, FBWF works on the file level.
When FBWF is enabled, all files and folders of a partition are protected unless they are
included in an exception list.
FBWF is disabled by factory default in the operating system images for SIMATIC IPC and
must be enabled and configured by the user.
When you enable FBWF, the folders C:\FBWF and D:\FBWF are authorized for writing by
default.
Comparison between EWF and FBWF
● You should prefer FBWF, because it is more flexible in its configuration and allows
immediate writing without rebooting.
● If you use HORM or compressed NTFS, EWF is indispensable.
CAUTION
Activate only one write filter per partition - otherwise you may incur data loss.
Both EWF and FBWF are preinstalled in the SIMATIC IPC images.
Ensure that only one write filter is enabled on a partition, otherwise you may incur data
loss.
Configuring FBWF
FBWF can be configured in command console using the program FBWFMGR.EXE.
NOTICE
 Observe the following syntax: Enter a space after the drive designation colon.
 Changes for direct write access only take effect after rebooting.
 Only existing files and folders can be entered in the exception list.

SRAM buffer memory
For applications to be able to store data following a power failure, the motherboard features
a battery-buffered CMOS-RAM. If the supply voltage fails longer than 5 ms, this is indicated
by the DC FAIL signal.
Enough time is provided for copying data to the buffered RAM that 256 KB can be saved
with a full configuration.
A maximum 2048 Kb memory window is displayed via a PCI address register. The base
address is initialized by the BIOS.
A corresponding function is implemented there for using the CMOS-RAM under WinAC RTX.
NOTICE
If replacement of the battery takes longer than 30 seconds, the data saved in the CMOS
RAM and in the buffered SRAM is lost.

Boot error messages
During startup (the boot process), the BIOS first performs a Power On Self Test (POST) and
checks whether certain functional units of the PC are operating error-free. The boot
sequence is immediately interrupted if critical errors occur.
BIOS initializes and tests further functional units if the POST does not return any errors. In
this startup phase, the graphics controller is initialized and any error messages are output to
the screen.
The error messages output by system BIOS are listed below. For information on error
messages output by the operating system or application programs, refer to the
corresponding manuals.

The following tables and pictures describe the system resources for the factory state of the
device.
16.3.2.1
PCI Interrupt Lines
The interrupts are assigned to devices by BIOS. Exclusive non-shared interrupts are
available for the first two PCI-104 or PC/104-Plus slots as well as for DP12 and the first
Ethernet interface.
This means that applications or realtime operating system extensions can operate these
devices exclusively and with high-performance without having to share the interrupt with
other devices.

A limited selection can be preset in the BIOS Setup.
Note
The CAN base address register shares its I/O address with other registers. The watchdog
enable register / 066h select register therefore must be selected before access.

ESD Guidelines
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.
