Lists of faults and warnings

"alarmlist_*.xml" files are not required to properly operate the firmware and related STARTER. They only contain a text extract of the SINAMICS DC MASTER "alarm messages" in "xml" format (this format ensures that the text is displayed correctly independently of worldwide differing fonts and can thus be correctly converted into other formats).
 In some cases, this text extract is required by customers who wish to further use it in their applications resp. integrate it in external units. For this reason, we cannot provide any further support for the SINAMICS DC MASTER.

The lists in the zip-file contain 2 components:
 1. alarmlist_dc_master_basic -> general SINAMICS messages
 2. alarmlist_dc_master_oa -> DC-specific messages

AOP30 Languages

If an AOP is operated on a converter without a memory card, it can be selected between german and english in the AOP30. There are also the languages french, italian, spanish and russian available. The requirement for that is a connected memory card and the firmware (from V1.2). The firmware which is provided for update, contains also all available language packages.
