A memory card is needed in order to upgrade the SINAMICS G120X firmware.

The procedure of preparing the memory card is described as the following:

1. Download the required firmware to your PC from this SIOS Note

2. Extract the files to a directory of your choice on your PC.

3. Transfer the unzipped files into the root directory of the memory card. See an example from Figure 4.

Figure 4  Example of memory card contents after the file transfer

Depending on the firmware, the filenames and the number of files may differ from the display above.

The "USER" directory does not exist on unused memory cards. After the memory card is plugged in for the first time, the converter creates a new "USER" directory.

In terms of further information regarding Firmware upgrade, please refer to the instructions given in the "Firmware upgrade" chapter 10.3 in the Operating instructions of the SINAMICS G120X.

6. List of faults and alarms

The "alarmlist_*.xml" files are not necessary for the correct operation of the firmware. They only include an export of the "Alarm messages" text for the SINAMICS G120X in the "xml" format. Customers occasionally request these exported texts so that they can further process them in their own applications or integrate them in external devices. As a consequence, as far as the SINAMICS G120X product is concerned, no additional support can be provided here.
