S7-200 is an easy-to-learn software designed specifically for developing programs and repairing SIMATIC S7-200 programmable controllers. The software can be used to solve various automation tasks, quick and easy program development, and reduce design time.

The STEP 7-Micro / WIN V4.0 software package allows you to program all central processors of the S7-200 series. V4 and later versions of STEP 7-Micro / WIN have the following indicators: simple program structure, linear program structure, which contains regular routines and interrupt service routines. In addition, a data block can be created. It can be programmed using symbolic addressing.
