  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The product version of SINAMICS DCC V2.4 SP1 for STARTER V4.5 SP1 has been released for delivery. In the following section, you will find additional information about SINAMICS DCC and product versions.

SINAMICS Drive Control Chart (DCC) is part of the Advanced Technology Function of SINAMICS S120. It consists of a graphic configuration tool (DCC editor based on SIMATIC CFC) and the function block libraries, also known as the Drive Control Block (DCB) libraries. Two types of DCB library are available, i.e. DCB Standard and DCB Extension. Comprehensive control loop blocks, arithmetic blocks and logic modules are available in the DCB Standard libraries. On the other hand, individual block library can be created with DCB Extension. You can find more information about SINAMICS DCB Extension at 74924161.

SINAMICS DCC is installed in addition to the STARTER engineering software. The SINAMICS DCC software package is a component of STARTER (DVD, software download) and is installed by selecting SIMATIC CFC during the setup. SINAMICS DCC supports subsequent installation of the software package. A (floating) engineering license is always required on each PC for configuring SINAMICS DCC. The license must be ordered separately with the SINAMICS DCC. When using blocks from the standard DCB libraries, which are listed in the SINAMICS DCC software package, a runtime license is not required.

SINAMICS DCC contains the SINAMICS DCC software package with SIMATIC CFC and all the current DCB standard libraries on one data storage medium (DVD) and the engineering license (on a USB stick) for SINAMICS DCC based on the SIMATIC CFC version.
