Here you can find the DriveLib for reading and writing data from and to the SINAMICS S/G converter systems within SIMATIC S7-300/400/1200/1500 at TIA Portal. Note: As from Startdrive V16, the DriveLib library is no longer supplied with Startdrive. As from STEP7 V15.1, these blocks are also provided as instructions.

The objective of the standard "Communication blocks for SIMATIC S7-300/400/1200/1500" blocks is the simple implementation of a cyclic or acyclic communication connection between a SIMATIC S7-300/400/1200/1500 controller in TIA Portal and a drive of a SINAMICS S/G converter system.
