The central software package for the configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnosis of SIMOCODE pro.

SIMOCODE ES V13 is the central software package for the configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnosis of SIMOCODE pro with PROFIBUS/PROFINET communication interface.
In addition to SIMOCODE ES Version 13, based on the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) central engineering framework, the software continuously is available as version 2007 for all SIMOCODE pro basic units: 109480470

Licenses for SIMOCODE ES V12 are also suitable for SIMOCODE ES V13 SP1.

The software is based on the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) central engineering framework and can be seamlessly integrated if additional TIA Portal-V13 SP1-based software such as STEP 7 and WinCC is present, thus providing the user with a consistent, efficient, and intuitive solution to all automation tasks.
But those using SIMOCODE ES V13 as standalone software will also enjoy its benefits. 


Three program versions
Users can choose between different versions of SIMOCODE ES: SIMOCODE ES Basic, SIMOCODE ES Standard, and SIMOCODE ES Premium. While SIMOCODE ES Basic is a powerful tool for commissioning or maintenance personnel, a greater functional scope and integrated graphics editor make SIMOCODE ES Standard and Premium perfect tools for engineers and project planners. Unlike the standard version, SIMOCODE ES Premium also allows parameterization and diagnosis via PROFIBUS/PROFINET. The display of all operating, service, and diagnostic data supplies meaningful information about the current state of the motor and the system at all times – everywhere in PROFIBUS/PROFINET.

Integrated graphics editor
The graphics editor is a part of SIMOCODE ES Standard and SIMOCODE ES Premium. It is based on the Continuous Function Chart (CFC) and adds a powerful tool to the parameterizing interface that enables easy parameterization of devices by Drag&Drop. Extremely compact documentation of all configured parameters is possible, as is the graphic online presentation of the configured device functions including all signal states during operation.

Trial License

The software comprises a trial license of SIMOCODE ES V13 Premium. The Licensee shall be granted the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to install the SW in one (1) Instance and to use it for validation purposes in the manner specified in the Order Data or CoL (see "Type of Use"). The period of usage is limited to 21 days and commences with the SW start-up, unless a different period of usage is specified in the Order Data or CoL.
