4. Sources

The SINAMICS G120 firmware V4.7 SP13 can be obtained from the following sources: 

1.      Firmware on SD card
The firmware is included on the SINAMICS G120 multicard, firmware version 4.7 SP13.
The  SINAMICS G120 multicard firmware version 4.7 SP13, including the license (Certificate of License), is available in four versions:

  • Without firmware options (6SL3054-7TG00-2BA0)
  • With firmware options "Extended Functions" for the CU250S-2 Control Unit
    • Safety (6SL3054-7TG00-2BA0-Z F01)

5. Firmware download

The Firmware version 4.7 SP13 can be downloaded from the following source: see 109781019 

6. Change in the delivery form of the CoL (Certificate of License) for license orders via the drive memory card MLFB together with Z-options

Starting with this FW version (V4.7 SP13), the CoL information is delivered in electronic form. The individual CoLs (according to your order) are stored on the delivered drive memory card in the folder:
"...\KEYS\SINAMICS\eCoL\" as PDF files. (In this case the delivery does not include CoLs in paper form anymore).

The information content of the electronic CoL is identical to the previous paper form.

Note for ordering the drive memory cards together with Z-options:

When ordering a drive memory card (V4.7 SP13) together with Z-options, it is now mandatory to enter an E-Mail-address in the ordering system.

This E-Mail-address is required for the following reason:
The CoL files delivered on the drive memory card are available to the purchaser as a backup in the OSD system (Online Software Delivery) (e.g. if the memory card is erased). The E-Mail-address can be used to log into the OSD system and to download the CoL documents. Therefore, the purchaser of the drive memory card automatically receives an e-mail from the OSD system. We recommend do archive this E-Mail-address for a possible later use.

Note on ordering licenses via the separate SINAMICS RT license MLFBs:

If you are ordering RT-Options licenses only, you should use the corresponding new MLFB (15th digit with "H", e.g. Extended Safety Functions 6SL3074-0AA10-0AH0) to take advantage of the benefits of timely electronic delivery via OSD. You can also copy the CoL file (PDF) downloaded from OSD to your existing drive memory card in the folder "...\KEYS\SINAMICS\eCoL\" and thus save it close to the machine.
