How will the TIA integration of drives in STEP 7 V5.x also be guaranteed in the future - and how will it be ensured that existing STEP 7 V5.x customer projects can be processed?
STEP 7 V5.x projects with only SINAMICS and/or MICROMASTER 4 drives:
From STARTER Version V4.3 SP2, these STEP 7 V5.x integration attributes (Drive ES Basic functionality) will be provided free of charge.
This means STARTER installs the object managers (SlaveOM and DeviceOM) when a STEP7 full version V5.x has been installed. This only applies to the relevant drives that are supported by the STARTER commissioning tool! You can also obtain the appropriate statements under the current STARTER product information.
STEP 7 V5.x projects, which (also) include MASTERDRIVES, DC-Master, MICRO-/MIDI-/COMBIMASTER with CB15/CB155 or SIMODRIVE drives:
For this purpose, the new software product "Drive ES Basic Maintenance" V5.6 will be available, where a license fee will be charged.
This software product guarantees the integration of these drive systems in STEP 7 V5.x and ensures that existing STEP 7 V5.x customer projects with integrated drives remain functional.
"Drive ES Basic Maintenance" will include the following commissioning tools:
- SimoCom U
- SimoCom A
At the product cancellation/discontinuation (October 1, 2016) of "Drive ES Basic", information will be provided about the first delivery and the scheduled L price for this successor product.
