SM810 and SV6.0.2
On an upgrade job, the customer is upgrading 800xA from 5.0 SP1 to 6.0.2.
We have checked the existing hardware revisions and it is compatible with 6.0.2 system. On safety controllers, the existing configuration is with SM810. For the existing controllers already configured in the project with SM810 we do not have any problems upgrading the firmware and downloading the applications.
However if we try to create a new controller with SM810 the control builder does not give an option to add SM810. I can see Sm810 being present the in HI hardware lib 6.0 , but when I try to insert the unit it does not give me an option to insert it.
Is there a way in which I can insert a SM810 module for PM865 in SV6.0.2 control builder.
As you mentioned, your upgrade project was successful, which means BasicHIHwLib of 5.0 system version (or 5.0 SP1 equivalent, not sure it should be BasicHWLib 5.0-1) must be loaded to your system. This HW Library contains the SM810 from your 5.0 system, so it co-exists along with 6.0 BasicHWLib and BasicHwHILib.
As already mentioned in the release notes of 6.0.0:
"AC 800M High Integrity
Support for SM810. From this version, it is not possible to use SM810 in new
projects, but still supports when upgrading projects from previous versions."
So you can't create a new HI controller with SM810, but it is possible to use existing SM810 if you have BasicHWLib 5.0-1. Otherwise, you can manually import the BasicHWLib from 5.0 SP1 system and then import the afw file into 6.0 system. Please do remember to select 'NO' when it asks for upgrading HW Libbrary to 6.0 system. That means you are allowed to use 5.0 HW Lib and you can use HI controller with SM810.
This method of taking 5.0 HW Lib is not required, if you use backup-restore mechanism as automatically it takes care.
For your reference, I am attaching the screenshot of the Project in 6.0 with old HW Lib (But I had 5.0 SP2 backup, hence it shows 5.0-2).
