#  "FAQs":

+ What is the emergency address (emergency IP) of a CPU and when is
   this enabled or disabled? (2014-07-16) [97649773]
   For products: 6ES7211-1AE40-0XB0; 6ES7211-1BE40-0XB0; 6ES72
   Description The emergency address (emergency IP address) of a CPU
   is designed for diagnostics and download functions; for example,
   if the CPU can no longer be accessed via the IP protocol through
   the downloading of an incorrect project. In such cases you can
   assign an emergency IP address to the CPU. You cannot perform any
   IO communications with the emergency IP address. ...

+ Why does the following message appear in the diagnostics buffer of
   the S7-1200 CPU: "Buffer overflow for OB 0, Event ID: 16#
   02:3507"? (2014-07-16) [97551525]
   For products: 6ES7211-1AD30-0XB0; 6ES7211-1AE31-0XB0; 6ES72

#  "FAQs":
 + How can you open a global library with write access rights in STEP
   7 (TIA Portal)? (2014-06-11) [37364723]
   For products: 6ES7822-0A.01-..; 6ES7822-0A.02-..; 6ES7822-0
   Description When you open a global library in the default setting
   in STEP 7 (TIA Portal), it is write protected.. This permits
   multiple users to access a library simultaneously. In order to
   open a global library with write access rights you must disable
   the 'Open write-protected' function before opening the library.
   Without write protection you can change the library by adding new
   elements, for example. Access for other users is blocked as long
   as you have the global library o ...

 + How do you load a project into the CPU in STEP 7 (TIA Portal)?
   (2014-06-12) [42637263]
   For products: 6ES7211-1AD30-0XB0; 6ES7211-1AE31-0XB0; 6ES72
   Instructions To load project data into the CPU you need an online
   connection between your programming device and the device or CPU.
   The table below describes a sample downloading process for an
   S7-1500 CPU (generally valid for all CPUs). Under circumstances it
   might be necessary first to reset the S7-1500 CPU to the factory
   settings if the module memory is not initialized automatically. If
   the CPU has only one IP address and no hardware configuration has
   been downloaded, you wil ...

 + How in STEP 7 (TIA Portal) do you access the unstructured data
   types bit-by-bit, byte-by-byte or word-by-word and symbolically?
   (2014-06-11) [57374718]
   For products: 6ES7211-1AD30-0XB0; 6ES7211-1BD30-0XB0; 6ES72
   Description In the case of S7-1200 (as from firmware V2.0) and
   S7-1500 you have the option of accessing bit-by-bit the tags of
   the Byte, Word and DWord data types. For this you need STEP 7
   V11+SP1+Update 2 (or higher). The partitioning of a memory area
   (Byte or Word, for example) into a smaller memory area (Bool, for
   example) is also called memory slicing. Fig. 01 shows the symbolic
   bit, byte and word access to operands. ...
