The SIMATIC embedded and high-end IPC devices of the D generation (except IPC227D) are supported with the SIMATIC IPC Support Package for VxWorks.
The following SIMATIC IPCs can therefore now be operated along with their PROFINET, PROFIBUS and hardware-based functions with the real time VxWorks V6.9 operating system:
VxWorks V7 is now also supported in compatibility mode V6.9, 32-bit.
The PROFINET onboard interfaces of the SIMATIC IPCs offer diverse options for the integration of real-time solutions with SIMATIC IPC into PROFINET networks. PROFINET RT (real-time) is supported by the standard Ethernet interface of the IPC; PROFINET IRT (isochronous real-time) is supported by the onboard PROFINET interface.
