Description of the firmware update for the SIMOCODE pro V EIP motor management system

During operation it may be necessary to update the firmware (e.g. to extend the available functions).
Update the SIMOCODE pro V EIP firmware for the basic unit with the aid of firmware files. The parameterization of the device is retained after the firmware has been updated.


  • The supply voltage to the basic unit must be present and the network connection must not be interrupted at the start or during the firmware update.
  • A firmware update is only possible if
    • The motor is in the "off" state and there is no motor current
    • The control station is in "Local manual" status
    • The device is not protected by a password

Options for the firmware update

A firmware update can be performed via PROFINET IO with STEP 7 or SIMOCODE ES (TIA Portal).

Installation of the firmware update

Procedure via SIMOCODE ES (TIA Portal)

Proceed as follows to perform an online firmware update with SIMOCODE ES:

  1. Select the module in the device view.
  2. Select the "Online & diagnostics" command from the shortcut menu.
  3. Select the "Firmware update" group from the "Functions" folder.
  4. Click the "Browse" button to select the path to the firmware update files in the "Firmware update" area.
  5. Select the firmware file "3UF7 013-1AX00-0 V1.1.3.upd" from the folder in which the download file was earlier unpacked. The table in the firmware update area lists the modules under "Suitable for modules" for which an update is possible with the selected firmware file.
  6. Click the "Run update" button. If the module can interpret the selected file, the file is downloaded to the module.

Updating the firmware:

The "Run firmware after update" check box is always selected.
When the loading process is complete, the CPU adopts the firmware, and then operates with this new firmware.


If a firmware update is interrupted, the device cannot be used for production purposes until the update has been fully completed. In this case, the BUS and GEN FAULT LED indicators flash alternately and the DEVICE LED lights red. Restart the firmware update after an interruption.

Behavior during the firmware update:

Note the following behavior during the firmware update:

The BUS and GEN FAULT LED indicators flash alternately, and the DEVICE LED lights red. 

Behavior after the firmware update:

After the firmware update, check the firmware version of the basic unit that has had the firmware updated.


Further information on the procedure is to be found in the SIMOCODE ES online help.

Update V1.1.3
(contains also V1.0.2, V1.0.1, V1.1.1 and V1.1.2)

  • Web server: harmonization of displayed terms with the engineering software (language setting: English)
    Previously: General fault                     
    New: Group fault
    Previously: General warning               
    New: Group warning
    Previously: Test shutdown                  
    New: Test trip
    Previously: Thermal memory               
    New: Thermal motor model

  • Webserver: Device name assigned by SIMOCODE ES software is now being displayed in a more human-readable format

  • General improvements in terms of stability and security

  • Devices which have been updated to FW V1.1.3 cannot be downgraded to previous FW versions.

  • FW V1.1.3 also contains the function “dry running protection “.The use of this function necessarily requires basic units which are marked with *E04* or higher and “PTB 18 ATEX 5003 X".

Update V1.1.2
(contains also V1.0.2, V1.0.1 and V1.1.1)

  • Optimized test procedure of the thermistor inputs T1 and T2 during start-up phase
  • Devices which have been updated to FW V1.1.2 cannot be downgraded to previous FW versions.
  • FW V1.1.2 also contains the function “dry running protection “.The use of this function necessarily requires basic units which are marked with *E04* or higher and “PTB 18 ATEX 5003 X".
  • EDS file: 109741009

Update V1.1.1
(contains also V1.0.2 and V1.0.1)
