Software Update Service (SUS) for SIMATIC software:

With the optionally available SIMATIC SW licenses, you have the option of a Software Update Service (SUS) for each individual software product (STEP 7 Professional, Safety Advanced and WinCC Advanced). As soon as such an SUS agreement has been entered into, the latest software – whether that be a newly available upgrade or service pack – is delivered direct to your door or made available as a download. Because the Software Update Service is not included in the scope of delivery of the SIMATIC software pre-installed on the Field PG M6, it needs to be ordered separately.

You can find more information on SUS (particularly SUS download) in the following entry: 77363761
