Displaying diagnostics status and comparison status using icons


Determining diagnostics status online and displaying using icons
When the online connection to a device is established, the diagnostics status of the device and,
if applicable, its lower-level components is determined. The operating state of the device is also
determined, where applicable.
The following is a description of which icons are displayed in specific views.

Device view

The associated diagnostic icon is displayed for every hardware component (except the signal
board on the CPU).
To start the Online and Diagnostics view (if available), double-click the diagnostic icon.

For a hardware component with lower-level components, if there is a hardware error in at least
one lower-level component, the diagnostic icon appears as follows: The hardware component's
diagnostic icon has a pale appearance and the diagnostic icon "Hardware error in lower-level
component" is also shown in the lower right corner.

For hardware components with their own operating state, the operating state icon is also
displayed to the left of or above the diagnostic icon.

The following applies to modules or submodules of a shared device with an S7-1500 CPU: No
diagnostic icons are displayed (due to the configuration as GSDML device).

component" is also shown in the lower right corner.

The following applies to modules or submodules of a shared device with an S7-1500 CPU: For
modules assigned to the CPU, the associated diagnostic icon is displayed (modules that are
not assigned do not receive a diagnostic icon). The associated diagnostic icon is displayed for
plug-in submodules of an assigned module (submodules that are not pluggable are not visible
and therefore do not receive a diagnostic icon).

Network view

The associated diagnostic icon is displayed for every device.

Displaying diagnostics status and comparison status using icons

For a hardware component with lower-level components (e.g., distributed I/O, Slave_1), if there
is a hardware error in at least one lower-level component, the diagnostic icon appears as
follows: The hardware component's diagnostic icon has a pale appearance and the diagnostic
icon "Hardware error in lower-level component" is also shown in the lower right corner.

For hardware components with their own operating state, the operating state icon is also
displayed in the top right corner of the diagnostic icon.

If forcing is active on a CPU, a red F is displayed at the left margin of the diagnostic icon.

The diagnostic icon "Hardware error in lower-level component" is displayed behind the "Local
modules" folder when there is a hardware error in at least one of the associated modules.

The diagnostic icon "Hardware error in lower-level component" is displayed behind the
"Distributed I/O" folder when there is a hardware error in at least one of the associated modules.

The diagnostic icon "Hardware error in lower-level component" is displayed behind the project
folder when the "Hardware error in lower-level component" diagnostic icon is displayed behind
at least one of the "Local modules" or "Distributed I/O" folders.

The following applies to modules or submodules of a shared device with an S7-1500 CPU: The
associated diagnostic icon is displayed for modules assigned to the CPU (modules that are not
assigned are grayed out and do not receive a diagnostic icon). The associated diagnostic icon
is displayed for plug-in submodules of an assigned module (submodules that are not pluggable
are not visible and therefore do not receive a diagnostic icon).

Note
If the diagnostic for a hardware component is "not reachable from the CPU", the diagnostic
icon "Hardware error in lower-level component" is not additionally shown.

Diagnostic icons for modules and devices


The following table shows the available icons and their respective meaning.

Displaying diagnostics status and comparison status using icons

Icon

Meaning
Error
The module or device is deactivated.
The module or the device cannot be reached from the CPU (valid for modules and
devices below a CPU).
No input or output data are available, because the (sub)module has blocked its input
or output channels.
Diagnostics data are not available because the current online configuration data differ
from the offline configuration data.
The configured module or device and the module or device actually present are
incompatible (valid for modules or devices under a CPU).
The configured module does not support display of the diagnostics status (valid for
modules under a CPU).
The connection is established, but the module status has not yet been determined
or is unknown.
The configured module does not support display of the diagnostics status.
Hardware error in lower-level component: A hardware error is present in at least one
lower-level hardware component. (occurs as a separate icon only in the project tree)

Note
Some modules, for example, the FM 450-1, are only indicated as having a problem in the case
of an error if you have enabled the diagnostic interrupt when assigning the module property
parameters.

Icons for the comparison status


The diagnostic icons can be combined at the bottom right with additional smaller icons that
indicate the result of the online/offline comparison. The following table shows the available
comparison icons and their meaning.
Icon

Meaning
Hardware error in lower-level component: The online and offline versions differ (only
in the project tree) in at least one lower-level hardware component.
Software error in lower-level component: The online and offline versions differ (only
in the project tree) in at least one lower-level software component.
Online and offline versions of the object are different
Object only exists online

Icon

Meaning
Object only exists offline
Online and offline versions of the object are the same

Note
If both a comparison icon and the "Error in lower-level component" diagnostic icon are to be
displayed at the bottom right in the device view, the following rule applies: The diagnostic icon
for the lower-level hardware component has a higher priority than the comparison icon. This
means that a comparison icon is only displayed if the lower-level hardware components have
no errors.

Display of software errors in the project tree

The associated comparison icon is shown behind each block.


Behind each folder, under which exclusively blocks are contained, the diagnostic icon "Software error
in lower-level component" is displayed when there is a software error in at least one of the associated
blocks.
For a hardware component with lower-level software components, if there is no hardware error and
there is an error in at least one lower-level software component, the diagnostic icon appears as
follows: The hardware component's diagnostic icon has a pale appearance and the diagnostic icon
"Software error in lower-level component" is also shown in the lower right corner.

Combined diagnostics and comparison icons


The following table shows examples of icons that are displayed in the diagnostics icon.
