With immediate effect, the product Drive ES Basic V5.5 SP1 has been released for delivery. This has been revised and enhanced due to the market launch of STEP7 V5.5 SP1 and SP2, the support for the operating system Windows 7 (64 bit) as well as an update of the integrated STARTER commissioning tool to Version V4.3 SP1.

The following individual innovations have been made in the V5.5 SP1 compared to the previous version V5.5

  • Support for the operating system Windows 7 (64 bit) in the Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise versions
  • Fully compatible with STEP7 V5.5 SP1 and SP2
  • The Starter Version V4.3 SP1, the commissioning tool for SINAMICS and 4th Generation MICROMASTER have been integrated.
  • Communication to SINAMICS G120 drives with CU2xx-2 is also supported via USB (native)
  • SimoCom A Version V 05.03.02, the tool for the POSMO A, has been integrated.
  • SimoCom U Version 13.02.02.01, the tool for the SIMODRIVE 611U and POSMO CA/CD/SI, has been integrated.
  • DriveMonitor Version V5.5, the tool for MASTERDRIVES and SIMOREG, has been integrated. (unchanged)

Benefits provided by a Drive ES Basic installation compared to the installation of individual tools

  • Benefits provided compared to all single tools (STARTER Stand alone, SIMOCOM U/A and DriveMonitor)
    • More convenient integration of the drives in the hardware configuration of SIMATIC S7 via object manager (SlaveOM and DeviceOM) instead of GSD files
    • The communication can also be set up beyond network boundaries by routing in the SIMATIC and SIMOTION stations. Without Drive ES, the individual tools can only communicate with drives that are connected to the same subnet (PROFIBUS, PROFINET) as the engineering PC/PG. Please read the routing notes!
    • The tools can be directly called up in a context-sensitive manner from the SIMATIC Manager. All the necessary network information is automatically transferred for routing.
  • Further advantages compared to DriveMonitor and SIMOCOM U/A
    • Data archiving in the S7 project
  • Another advantage compared to DriveMonitor
    • Direct communication via PROFIBUS
      Without Drive ES, the DriveMonitor can only communicate with the drives via USS protocol via a serial interface or via a PROFIBUS-OPC server

Routing notes

Routing-capable modules support routing to the drives beyond network boundaries.

  • Routing in combination with SIMOTION:
    All SIMOTION modules support the functionality "Routing/S7-Routing", but not the functionality "Data record routing".
    Thus, new G120 devices cannot be reached via routing with a CU2xx-2 behind a SIMOTION.
  • Routing in combination with SIMATIC S7:
    The "S7 routing-capable" SIMATIC modules are listed under 584459 or directly in the hardware catalog of the STEP7 hardware configuration.
    For routing to the new G120 devices with CU2xx-2, you require SIMATIC modules which, additionally to S7-Routing, also support the functionality "Data record routing".
    General information regarding data record routing is provided under 7000978. SIMATIC modules which support data record routing are listed under 50037141.

Note
In Version V5.5 (or later), Drive ES Basic is only provided as a mere option package for SIMATIC STEP7, that means the Drive ES Basic V5.5 (or later) can only be installed additionally to an already installed STEP7 full version. The procedure remains the same for SIMATIC-S7 users.

The Version V5.5 can, however, no longer be used with a STEP7 independent stand-alone installation. The stand-alone installation is no longer supported as from the Drive ES Basic Version V5.5.
