SINAMICS G: Speed control of a ET200S FC/ET200pro FC using S7-300/400 (STEP 7 V5) with PROFINET

One or several ET200S FC frequency converters (FW 3.0 or higher) or ET200pro FC are being used in a plant or system. Communication that goes beyond the standard telegram 1 is to be established using these frequency converters.

With the launch of the ET200S FC (FW1.x), a partner block FB100 (V2.2) was also provided. This partner block can no longer be used for the currently available ET200S FC (FW 3.0).

A new FB100 (V 3.0) was developed to resolve this problem; this runs from firmware version V3.0 and higher of the ET200S FC and ET200pro FC. During development, special emphasis was placed on keeping the differences to the previous FB100 (V2.2) to a minimum regarding its behavior and how it is controlled.
