Please observe the following note if you have any problems when starting up SINAMICS with Firmware together with a CAN master:

The default value of the CANopen object 1000 hex "Device Type" is missing in the device description files (EDS file). As a result, a controller may lead to a fault and the startup may fail when uploading the object and comparing it with the value in the EDS file.

As the EDS files are pure test files, the user can add the following line in the entry for the CANopen object 1000 hex using the text editor:

EDS file Line to be inserted (example see below)
SINAMICS_S110.eds DefaultValue=0x00020192
SINAMICS_S120.eds: > 1 axis (servo or vektor) DefaultValue=0x0FFF0192
SINAMICS_S120.eds: 1 axis servo DefaultValue=0x00020192
SINAMICS_S120.eds: 1 axis vektor DefaultValue=0x00020192
