SIMOCODE ES V15 is the central software package for the configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnosis of SIMOCODE pro. Licenses for SIMOCODE ES V12 / V13 / V14 are also suitable for SIMOCODE ES V15.

The software is based on the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) central engineering framework and can be seamlessly integrated if additional TIA Portal-V15-based software such as STEP 7 and WinCC is present, thus providing the user with a consistent, efficient, and intuitive solution to all automation tasks.
But those using SIMOCODE ES V15 as standalone software will also enjoy its benefits.

What‘s new in SIMOCODE ES V15

The following new features and innovations are available at SIMOCODE ES in the TIA Portal:

  • SIMOCODE ES V15 Basic is available for download free of charge using this download entry-ID.

  • User-configurable display of device parameters

      • A new view of the device parameters, the "Expert list", is available in the parameter editor.
      • Groups of parameters as well as individual parameters can be marked as favorites.
      • A filtered parameter view is possible based on these favorites.
      • Export and import this selection of favorites (without values)
  • Mass engineering

      • High-performance function for mass engineering of devices within a project (also for different types of SIMOCODE pro basic units)
      • Selected and appropriately set parameters can be transferred to a group of devices in a single step.
  • Parameter wizard

      • Step-by-step configuration of all important device parameters
      • Settings for the fieldbus interface, device configuration, motor protection and monitoring functions can be queried and stored
      • User can call up the wizard directly from the Parameter Editor at any time.
  • Automatic generation of PLC tags

      • If STEP 7 is additionally installed and one SIMOCODE per device is connected to a PLC, PLC can be are automatically generated for the process image of inputs and outputs that are exchanged with a PLC via PROFIBUS or PROFINET. This function can be enabled in the IO addresses dialog.
      • Thanks to this function, the user can directly access these data in the user program using symbolic addressing.
  • Support for "TIA Portal Openness"

    • SIMOCODE ES supports the access to all mandatory attributes

  • Automatic layout of graphical blocks

      • Placement of the blocks in fixed columns similar to the IPO principle (IPO = input, processing, output)
  • All parameters can now be edited in the graphics editor, not just the connections.

      • Values can be entered directly at the function block using the keyboard.

Three program versions

The user can choose between three different versions of SIMOCODE ES: SIMOCODE ES Basic, SIMOCODE ES Standard, and SIMOCODE ES Premium.
New: Since V15, SIMOCODE ES Basic SIMOCODE as a powerful tool for commissioning or maintenance engineers is offered for download free of charge at Siemens Industry Online Support using this download entry-ID. 

SIMOCODE ES Standard and Premium, with their more extensive range of functions and integrated graphics editor, are perfect tools for engineering and configuring. Unlike the Standard version, SIMOCODE ES Premium also permits parameterization and diagnostics through PROFIBUS/PROFINET/Ethernet. The display of all operating, service, and diagnostics data supplies important information about the current state of the motor and plant at all times – everywhere on PROFIBUS or PROFINET/Ethernet.

Integrated graphics editor

The graphics editor is a part of SIMOCODE ES Standard and SIMOCODE ES Premium. It is based on the Continuous Function Chart (CFC) and adds a powerful tool to the parameterizing interface that enables easy parameterization of devices by Drag&Drop. Extremely compact documentation of all configured parameters is possible, as is the graphic online presentation of the configured device functions including all signal states during operation.

Trial License

The software comprises a trial license of SIMOCODE ES V15 Premium. The Licensee shall be granted the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to install the SW in one (1) Instance and to use it for validation purposes in the manner specified in the Order Data or CoL (see "Type of Use"). The period of usage is limited to 21 days and commences with the activation of the trial license, unless a different period of usage is specified in the Order Data or CoL.
