The central software package for the configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnosis of SIMOCODE pro.

SIMOCODE ES V15.1 is the central software package for the configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnosis of SIMOCODE pro.

Licenses for SIMOCODE ES V12 / V13 / V14 / V15 are also suitable for SIMOCODE ES V15.1.

SIMOCODE ES V15.1 and SIMOCODE ES V15 have identical article-numbers.

The software is based on the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) central engineering framework and can be seamlessly integrated if additional TIA Portal-V15.1-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 V15.1 as standalone software will also enjoy its benefits.

SIMOCODE ES V15.1 can be installed side-by-side to SIMOCODE ES V15.

What is new in SIMOCODE ES V15.1 compared with V15? 

Folgende Neuheiten stehen bei SIMOCODE ES im TIA Portal zur Verfügung:

  • Direct support of the following new SIMOCODE pro modules:
  • SIMOCODE pro V PN V2.1 basic unit with ATEX dry-running protection
  • SIMOCODE pro V PN GP V2.1 basic unit (PROFINET General Performance devices)
  • Current/voltage measuring module IUM V2 DRP with ATEX dry-running protection

  • Access to all device-specific parameters via the TIA Openness interface:
    • Creating and configuring SIMOCODE pro devices via the Openness interface

    • Offline determination of all SIMOCODE pro parameters

    • Networking of devices

    • Support of export and import of CAx data

    • Support of export and import of one/several device(s) to an AML file/from an AML file

You will find detailed information on this in the online help for SIMOCODE ES V15.1 topics "Openness - Fundamentals" and "Overview of the device-specific SIMOCODE pro Openness attributes".

  • SIMOCODE pro V PN enables dry-running protection of centrifugal pumps (non-electrical device) by active power monitoring and motor shutdown. This applies to centrifugal pumps with progressive flow characteristics, which are also suitable for pumping flammable media and are also installed in hazardous areas. You will find detailed information on this in the online help for SIMOCODE ES V15.1 topics "Dry-running protection of centrifugal pumps by active power monitoring" and "Dry-running protection wizard".

    • Description 

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. 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

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 V15.1 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 SW start-up, unless a different period of usage is specified in the Order Data or CoL.
