General information
With immediate effect, the SIMOTION V4.1 SP5 HF6 has been released for delivery. This version replaces the existing version 4.1 SP5 HF3. We recommend that you generally use this new version.

Users who have concluded a valid software update service agreement for SCOUT and SCOUT Stand-alone will automatically receive the upgrade for SCOUT V4.1 SP5 HF6 (on DVD).
Licenses for SCOUT V4.1 SP1, SP2 and SP4 are also valid for V4.1 SP5.

We recommend that you use the SCOUT V4.1 SP5 HF6 for configuring the SIMOTION platforms equipped with V4.1 SP5.

Scope of functions
SIMOTION V4.1 SP5 HF6 includes various error corrections in the engineering system and the runtime kernel.

Information regarding the new functions included in the version 4.1 SP5 are provided in the Info ID 42469145

Compatibility
SIMOTION SCOUT Version 4.1 SP5 is compatible with the versions V4.0, V3.2, V3.1 and V3.0.

Projects being created with older versions

  • can also be processed using the SCOUT Version 4.1 SP5 (the project data will be converted upwards). If required, the project data can be saved afterwards in the format V4.0, V3.2, V3.1 or V3.0
  • can be upgraded to the new version (e.g. if the existing project shall be extended to include the functions of the version 4.1 SP5). The relevant description is included in the Readme file resp. in the manual.

Projects of the version V4.1 can be processed without converting the project data upwards.

The current SIMOTION compatibility list comprising the relevant software and hardware combinations are provided in the article ID 18857317.


Behavior modified with output variables and error evaluation of the PLCopen blocks
The correction of errors arising in V4.1 SP4 led to a modified behavior of some output variables and the error outputs of the PLCopen blocks (this concerns the outputs InVelocity, InGear, InSync, Error, Error-Id and Command-Aborted). Up to now, the behavior of the error outputs was not unambiguous nor sufficiently documented.
More detailed information is provided in the FAQ PLCopen under article ID 37865127

Orders which have been placed for older SCOUT versions will be automatically substituted by this new software version. If you wish to obtain older SCOUT versions, these must be ordered as spare part. This does not apply to the SCOUT versions V4.1 SP4 and V4.1 SP5 which will be replaced by the version V4.1 SP5 HF6.

Regarding the SIMOTION P350-3, the software version and service pack can be ordered individually via the two Z options V resp. W. The software version is stated for the Z option V (e.g. V41) and the service pack for the Z option W (e.g. W05). The relevant software version is then installed at the factory for all new deliveries.

The software version and service pack cannot be ordered with P320-3. Z options can currently not be ordered with SIMOTION P320.

SIMOTION SCOUT V4.1 SP5 HF6 is required to configure SIMOTION P320-3.
The 12" key front (6AU1300-0DB00-0AA0) has not been released in combination with WinCC flexible RT and SIMOTION P320-3.

The firmware V4.1 SP5 HF6 is supplied with the SIMOTION SCOUT. If required, the SIMOTION hardware can be upgraded to V4.1 SP5 HF6. The firmware for SIMOTION D and SIMOTION C can also be downloaded from the Product Support, see article ID 31045047 and 31263919.

With the Device Update Tool, SIMOTION provides a convenient solution for upgrading SIMOTION devices. The Firmware Support Package V4.1 SP5 HF6 is supplied with the SIMOTION SCOUT. The Firmware Support Package for SIMOTION D and SIMOTION C can also be downloaded from the Product Support, see article ID 33119786.

As before, the SIMOTION D CF card is supplied with a SINAMICS Integrated V2.5 version. If you wish to use the version V2.6 SP2, please upgrade your CF card using the corresponding firmware.

SIMOTION software update agreements
Customers who have concluded a SIMOTION software update agreement will receive SCOUT V4.1 SP5 HF6.
Customers who have not concluded a software update agreement can order the current software version stating the order numbers listed above.
