6ES7972-0CB20-0XA0   SIMATIC S7, PC ADAPTER USB
Summary  Internet document

The new SIMATIC PC Adapter USB connects a PC via its USB interface with the MPI/DP interface of a S7/C7 system. No slot is required in the PC, i.e. the adapter is also suitable for non-expandable PCs, such as notebooks.

Internet document  Summary

In to-day’s PCs the USB port has gained more and more importance. To list the advantages of the USB port compared to the serial (RS 232) port would be superfluous here. Many notebook computers are supplied without serial port already. We are following the trend away from the serial port with the new PC Adapter USB, which will replace the PC Adapter with serial port in the medium term.

The new PC Adapter USB can be used to program all S7-300 and S7-400 CPUs via the MPI/DP port and the S7-200 CPUs via the PPI port.

Features and new functions:
Automatic baud rate and profile search
Up to 16 communication connections, of which up to 4 can be to slaves
Routing supported
The adapter is supplied via the MPI port (24V). The previous PC adapter required a separate 5V supply.
The firmware of the new PC adapter can be updated at a later stage for additional functions or error corrections.
Compatible with USB V1.1.
Considerably increased performance (factor 3)
Transmission speeds:

Scope of supply
The scope of supply of the PC Adapter USB includes the following components:

CD ROM “SIMATIC Software PC Adapter USB”, with software and documentation
USB cable with 5 m length
MPI cable with 0.3 m length (limited for technical reasons)
Software preconditions
Working with the SIMATIC PC Adapter USB requires a PC with one of the following operating systems:

Windows 2000
Windows XP Professional
Windows XP Home
and a SIMATIC software package permitting MPI communication (e.g. STEP 7)

Hardware preconditions
PC with a USB port and a CD-ROM drive.

Possible connections
The PC adapter can be connected to all S7-300, S7-400 PLCs and the IM 151-7 CPU of ET 200S. The WinAC Slot CPUs are exceptions, because they provide no 24V supply.
