  • Associated product(s)
In this entry, firmware versions are provided for the F-TM ServoDrive HF.

When firmware is updated, it must always be updated to the latest version available for the respective article number. Previous versions of the firmware are intended only as a backup to enable you to downgrade to the original version, although this has never been known to be necessary.

The latest version firmware version in each case is valid for all revision levels of the F-TM ServoDrive HF.

All hardware support packages for the TIA Portal can be found in the entry72341852 

The execution of the firmware update is described in detail in article  78646133. 

Note: When using TIA Portal V17, problems with the firmware update may occur 109801617

FW 1.0.1

from TIA V16 Upd. 2

As of FW 1.0.0 it is possible to automatically capture the encoder values of the incremental encoder from the system. Through this process, the commutation angle offset can be saved in the module retentively, thus accelerating the start performance after the power supply is switched off. In this context, further optimizations have been implemented in firmware FW 1.0.1.

Optimized functionality:

  • Configuring is locked if the commutation angle offset is set to the default value of 0.00° and the encoder is not to be calibrated each time the system starts.
  • Error detection of the A/B track was made more robust with respect to EMC disturbances.

NOTE: As a result of the modified start performance for motors equipped with incremental encoders, it is absolutely crucial that the drive system is recommissioned after the firmware has been updated. When doing so, it is especially important that the commutation angle offset is determined and is correctly transferred to the online project. With this measure, you can benefit from the advantages of faster starting behavior.

If you do not wish to use the feature with a faster start performance, then you must set the check mark in the "Encoder calibration at every startup" check box. Otherwise, the drive respond may respond in an uncontrolled and unpredictable way!
