On the other hand, the current availability of a free download of the SIMATIC Step 7 Lite software makes it awfully tempting to take a look at it.One of the major differences can be seen on the left hand side window.Pretty much everything the programmer needs for maintaining the project is neatly organized here.The top portion introduces a CPU box with easy access to controls, diagnostics (Ctrl D) and setup of the CPU.That’s not something I feel is necessary to be there all the time so I minimized it.Another nice friendly feature is the extended hover help on the menus and icons where clicking on the tool tip expands it into more help text.

On that note all the pop up dialogs are clearer then its STEP 7 counterpart.

For a user of the regular STEP 7 software the first thing to notice is there is no SIMATIC Manager.

That’s because the Lite version doesn’t support multi-projects or networking.

I think they’ve done that while making it friendlier for everyone involved.

The added graphics and color are a welcome addition.

The STEP 7 Lite software opens right up to the editor screen.
