Information about available versions of the 3RW44 block library for PCS 7, including links to updates and hotfixes.

General information

The SIRIUS 3RW44 soft starter block library for SIMATIC PCS 7 is used in PCS 7-based systems, in which the SIRIUS 3RW44 soft starter block library is connected.

Different versions of the block library are offered for the various versions of PCS 7.

The "Engineering software" version of the block library is necessary for use in a PCS 7 system. This version includes a single license for an engineering station, a single license for an automation system (AS), as well as the AS blocks (runtime software for the automation system) and faceplates required to integrate the SIRIUS 3RW44 soft starter into the PCS 7 process control system.

If the PCS 7 system comprises multiple automation systems (AS), an additional runtime license is required for each additional AS (offered with a separate article number). The blocks of the engineering software can be used in the PCS 7 system in multiple AS.

The Advanced Process Library (APL) was introduced as of PCS 7 version V8. The block interfaces of the engineering software have been appropriately modified so that the associated block libraries can use the APL interconnection logic.

The block library is offered as a migration version for the upgrade from an existing PCS 7 version without APL to a higher PCS 7 version (e.g. from PCS 7 V7 to PCS 7 V9) with little modification needed in the PCS 7 project. The options of the APL logic cannot be used if the Migration engineering software is used.
