Release for delivery, SIMOTION motion control system, Version V4.5 HF1

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Effective immediately, SIMOTION Version V4.5 HF1 is released for delivery.


1. General

Effective immediately, SIMOTION V4.5 HF1 is released for delivery. The release refers to the following components:

  • SIMOTION SCOUT engineering system, SCOUT standalone and SCOUT TIA, version V4.5 HF1
  • SIMOTION kernel/firmware V4.5 HF1
  • DCC SIMOTION V2.4.0.1

SIMOTION SCOUT V4.5 HF1 and kernel/firmware version V4.5 HF1 is the first generally released version within the main version V4.5.

The above mentioned software components are initially available via the Industry Online Support International (SIOS) (see under downloads). As a consequence, the complete SCOUT environment V4.5 can be downloaded. SCOUT V4.5 continues to operate with a 4.4 license key. This means that V4.5 can be used with an existing V4.4 license without any restrictions.

DCC SIMOTION V2.4 can also be used with existing DCC SIMOTION licenses without any restrictions (see Section SIMOTION DCC).

The DVDs and the DCC SIMOTION licenses will be released for delivery at a later point in time after the launch into production has been completed. We will inform you again about this through Siemens Industry Online Support.

SIMOTION SCOUT update contracts

Users with a valid software update service contract for SCOUT or SCOUT standalone are automatically supplied with SCOUT or SCOUT standalone V4.5 HF1 incl. SCOUT TIA, after enabling the DVDs. Urgently required software can be downloaded from SIOS.
Users without update service can source the actual software release with the article numbers listed above.

For additional information, please contact your Siemens representative.

SIMOTION DCC

For use, the appropriate DCC SIMOTION product should be ordered. DCC SIMOTION includes the license for DCC SIMOTION and DCC SINAMICS. Licenses for V2.1, V2.2 SP1 and V2.3 retain their validity for V2.4. Licenses V2.0 require an upgrade license. DCC for SIMOTION and SINAMICS can be installed using the setup for SCOUT V4.5 HF1 (DCC libraries (DCB) are also automatically installed and the installation of the DCC editor (CFC V8.2) should be activated in the setup).

SIMOTION CLib Studio (C/C++ programming)

Notes

Delivery release on a customer-for-customer basis. Libraries generated using CLib Studio V3.3 can be used with SIMOTION V4.4 – and also with/on SIMOTION V4.5.

SIMOTION CamTool

The CamTool software is used to generate cams in a user-friendly fashion. CamTool is an option package for SIMOTION SCOUT. The installation files are only required for installation with SCOUT. For SCOUT TIA, the CamTool can also be installed within the scope of the SCOUT TIA installation (optional).

The CamTool should be separately licensed in both cases. For CamTool V3.0 SP3 HF2, for previous versions less than V3.0, a new upgrade license is required.
