New firmware for S7-1200 communication processors 

Nuremberg, Germany. Siemens has now released its latest firmware version for Simatic S7-1200 communication processors (CPs). Version 3.1 supports connection to the Sinema Remote Connect management platform. Auto configuration allows CP variants CP 1243-7, CP 1243-8 and CP 1243-1 to be integrated into the platform. Used in combination with Sinema Remote Connect, this makes it exceptionally easy to achieve secured remote access to S7-1200 stations around the world for remote maintenance and diagnostics (Teleservice). Alongside Teleservice, the new firmware also permits additional security requirements in Telecontrol systems to be implemented using TeleControl Server Basic. 
The management platform for remote networks Sinema Remote Connect allows VPN (Virtual Private Network) tunnel connections to be established, managed and configured between control centers, technicians, stations and machines or plants. This opens up scope for users to quickly and simply perform maintenance tasks on machines spread around the globe. It’s now also possible to implement additional security requirements by quickly setting up a VPN connection between the control center and the relevant RTUs (Remote Terminal Units) on the basis of Simatic S7-1200. The VPN tunnel is established by the communication processor from the RTU to the control center to ensure secured encrypted data transmission. Engineering the CPs takes place using Step7 V15 engineering software in the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) Portal.
