In this lesson, we are going to begin to discuss how to update the hardware catalog in your STEP7 software. As you may know, the hardware catalog is the section in your program where you select specific modules with matching catalog numbers that will be used within your control system.
These include discrete and analog I/O modules, communication processes, power supplies, etc. Hardware updates are an important part of keeping your programming environment up to date with the latest versions.
