unfortunately I've no ideea about Downtime monitor, but I assume that value goes to a PLC and that is the machine speed setpoint; that case I would define a new "place" into the PLC for the speed and set it from WinCC (pdl).

1. how is the speed set at this moment? (when is not set from WinCC)?
2. is it automatically adjusted?
3. do you have a potentiometer for speed?

It does nor exist PLC accepting S5 AND S7 programs.
If the PLC color is black you MUST use S7; if its light yellow/grey you MUST use S5.
If you want to change the S5 with S7 you can try automatic converting of S5 prog to S7.
Althrough, I am warmly reccomanding you to do it manually.

Don't know if possible, I think not, but the "normal way" to log alarms and warnigs is to activate a bit, I think (not 100% sure) U can define & use internal tags (means that bits are not into the PLC, they are only WinCC internal).

It's very easy. Assign a script to any button the operator can press; the script must run "on button down" for example. That script have to write (as APPEND) infos in a log file (like: date, hour, button number, logged user etc).

you have to install the PLC simulator and licence. This simulator runs in the memory of your PC and acts like a real connected PLC; so U don't need any communication adapter; when you download the project use the MPI address of the simulator. and don't forget to start the simulator before downloading.
