Functional scope

SIMOTION software version V4.4 HF11 resolves a series of functional restrictions of the SIMOTION software versions V4.4 HF6/HF8. You can obtain the details from the  Registrierung notwendig  Readme.rtf (186,0 KB). Its use is always recommended when using version V4.4.

When changing to Hotfix11, the corresponding setup of SIMOTION SCOUT, SCOUT standalone or SCOUT TIA should be executed, and the kernel/firmware version of the particular platform upgraded.

The current SIMOTION compatibility list – with the combinations of software and hardware – can be found under18857317.


Delivery status

The delivery status of SIMOTION SCOUT, SIMOTION P320-4 and the SIMOTION C/D memory cards remains unchanged at version V4.4 HF6.

You can find the current article numbers of SIMOTION V4.4 components under product memorandum 96311883.



Installation requirements are

  • For SCOUT, STEP 7 V5.5 SP4 installed on the engineering computer. Version SIMOTION SCOUT V4.4 HF11 is a complete installation of SCOUT.
  • For SCOUT TIA, TIA Portal Framework V13 SP1 installed on the engineering computer (SCOUT TIA is a TIA Portal client setup). We recommend that you use the latest update of TIA Portal V13 SP1.

Once these conditions are available, SCOUT, SCOUT standalone or SCOUT TIA setups can be installed.


SCOUT standalone

When changing from SIMOTION V4.4 HF1/2/6/8 to V4.4 HF11, the projects do not have to be upgraded.


When changing from TIA Portal V13 (involves SCOUT TIA V4.4 HF1/2 and HF4) to V13 SP1 (involves SCOUT TIA V4.4 HF5 or higher HF), then projects must be upgraded in the TIA Portal - or operated in the compatibility mode.



The CamTool version remains unchanged. (CamTool V3.0 SP3 HF2)


Kernel/firmware, version V4.4 HF 11 is available for SIMOTION C240/C240PN, P320-4 and D410-2/D4x5-2. The detail versions, including the safety versions of SINAMICS Integrated for SIMOTION D, can be taken from
