This article is about adapting a hardware configuration of an S7 project to add a ToolScope to that configuration.

One important first step for the insertion of a ToolScope into a S7 project is the extension of the hardware configuration.

The ToolScope supports four NC channels in the standard configuration. At the same image width (240-byte outputs, 80-byte inputs), a further image is offered, which transfers less data per NC channel, but supports eight NC channels.

We offer an example S7-Project, which contains a hardware configuration sample.    

Implement the hardware configuration for the four/eight channel image from our example project in your project (right-click on the source object, "Copy", switch to your project, right-click on the target Profibus, "Paste"). View of example project:
