 SINAMICS S120 firmware version V4.8 HF6 for the CU320-2 und CU310-2

The following software can be downloaded:

At present, the download version of the Runtime SINAMICS S120 Firmware Version V4.7 HF7 (or later) is not subject to any export restrictions because the output frequency has been limited to 550 Hz.
It is not subject to the Iran embargo, neither is it stated in the EC Dual Use Regulation. (AL = N).
It is not a US product (ECCN = N).

Should you require higher output frequencies, you must purchase the license for "High output frequency"
order no. 6SL3074-0AA02-0AA0.
This can also be ordered as Z option J01 with CF card (See104020669)
The "High output frequency" license is subject to export restrictions and has currently the export code:
AL:3E225, ECCN: N SH-Code: 0.

Alternatively, a new memory card (CF) with the following order number can be used:

  • without performance extension:
    Order number.: 6SL3054-0EJ00-1BA0
  • with firmware option, performance extension:
    Order number.: 6SL3054-0EJ01-1BA0


 List of faults and alarms

The "alarmlist_*.xml" are not necessary for the correct operation of the firmware and the associated STARTER. They only contain a text-based export of the "Alarm messages" of the S120 in the "xml" format (this format guarantees a correct text-based representation, independent of the wide range of fonts that exist worldwide; this means that they can be converted error-free into other formats).
Customers occasionally request this exported text so that they can use it in their own applications or integrate it into external devices. As a consequence, as far as the S120 product is concerned, no additional support can be guaranteed here.
