Further details on the supported drive systems can be found in the following Excel overview:

The following error corrections are available in version V4.4 HF3 when compared to the previous version V4.4:

  • Cross-device STARTER expanded functionality

    • In the case of a PC with a time zone setting in Windows with a negative sign (e.g. UMC/GMT -01:00 or -02:00 or -03:00, etc.), saved trace files (*.trc) cannot be opened with STARTER. (TFS 335569)
  • SINAMICS S120, G130, G150, S150
    • Removed restriction in conjunction with upgrading SINAMICS drives (CU320-2 with PROFINET) from firmware V4.4 to a current firmware version in conjunction with the use of PROFIsafe telegrams:
      After upgrading the firmware of the CU, the alarm "A01796 (F, N) SI (CU): Waiting for communication (3)" is displayed on some drives, and PROFIsafe communication does not take place. (TFS 334721)
    • The device name of Ethernet changes when the function "Save and compile" is activated in the hardware configuration of STEP 7 on SINAMICS drives with CU320-2 with PROFINET. The cause is the change to the SINAMICS device name in the STARTER project by operating the STARTER functions. (TFS 329460)
  • SINAMICS G110/G110M/G120-2/G120C/G120D-2/G120P

    • SINAMICS G120 with PROFINET and STEP 7 HW Config:
      • The following error behavior has been corrected:
        Drive commissioning is performed in online mode; then the device data is loaded to the project. The device name is changed in the offline project and therefore the existing device name is modified and overwritten in the STEP 7 project. After downloading the HW configuration again, the project no longer runs. (TFS 324295)

Information about SINAMICS DCC V2.3

Information about SINAMICS DCC V2.3 for STARTER V4.4 HF3 and firmware versions can be found under 98206100.

Installation versions

STARTER can be operated in the following installation versions:

  • STARTER Standalone

  • STARTER integrated in STEP 7 for applications with SIMATIC S7

  • STARTER integrated in SIMOTION SCOUT or SIMATIC S7 technology

Sources of supply for SINAMICS MICROMASTER STARTER

  • This (the current) STARTER version can be ordered under the order number (MLFB) 6SL3072-0AA00-0AG0 on DVD incl. the license certificate. A nominal charge of € 28.86 is incurred for order processing.
  • This current STARTER version (V4.4 HF3 or more recent) can also be downloaded under 26233208. The download can be used by anyone who already has a STARTER license certificate of any version.
  • STARTER V4.4 HF3 will be included in a following SIMOTION SCOUT V4.4 hotfix.

SINAMICS MICROMASTER STARTER can be used free of charge.

Information about the installation and the opening of existing projects

STARTER V4.4 HF3 can only be installed with administrator rights on the PG/PC. User rights are sufficient to operate STARTER (exception: Adding additional PG/PC interfaces).

STARTER V4.4 HF3 only has one setup for both installation versions ("STARTER Standalone" and "STARTER DriveES").

  • If no STEP 7 is available, the standalone versions will be installed on your computer.
  • If there is a STEP 7 installation on your computer, the Drive ES version will be installed/updated. (Note: Drive ES Basic must no longer be installed as a prerequisite (as of STARTER V4.3 SP2!)).


Support

A Guided Tour can be downloaded which facilitates familiarization with the STARTER (see 21110668).

Note on STARTER and other engineering software

Simultaneous operation of the STARTER, SIMOTION SCOUT and SIMATIC S7-Technology versions in a shared partition on one PG/PC is not supported. STARTER and Startdrive V12, V12 SP1 or V13 can be installed in parallel on a shared partition and operated simultaneously.

Important note for installation in context with SIMATIC PCS 7:
SIMATIC PCS 7 CiR capability (configuration in run) for existing projects with Siemens drives at PROFIBUS DP or PROFINET IO

Affected User/Project Scenario

The loss of the CiR capability of SIMATIC PCS 7 can be caused by the following SW update:

- Installation of this new STARTER version

This installation often also update the software components SlaveOM (PROFIBUS DP) and DeviceOM (PROFINET IO). If the existing configuration is translated afterwards, then the internal configuration data are changed due to the version and the generated configuration data will sometimes cause a loss of CiR capability!

Please check that the current configuration can be loaded via "Station > Check CiR Capability" at HW-Config.

Remedy

Information in detail according the CiR capability you find at the System Manual “PCS 7 Process Control System CPU 410 Process Automation”. These "changed" configuration data must be loaded once in the STOP state of the CPU and then CiR Capability for further translations and loading processes is available again.

If this procedure is not possible with your system, please contact the Customer Service.

Minimum system requirements

The following minimum requirements must be met:

  • Hardware
    • PG or PC with Pentium III min. 1 GHz (recommended > 1 GHz)
