The following functional extensions are available in version V4.3 SP2 compared to the previous version V4.3 SP1 HF2 or HF5:

  • Global STARTER functional extensions
    • Drive-family-oriented setup for the installation (package selection and detailed device or program selection).
      Adapted Internet download packages are available for the installation:
    • Download and installation without SINAMICS S and integrated variants possible; these drive families can be installed at any time by performing a new setup.
    • Download and installation without online helps possible; the helps can be installed at any time by performing a new setup.
    • Direct Internet link (URL address) to STARTER - updates as menu function or in the online help.
    • Provision of the so-called "Drive ES Basic functionality" for MICROMASTER 4 and SINAMICS drives.
      With STARTER V4.3 SP2, this SIMATIC STEP7 integration for MICROMASTER 4 and SINAMICS drives is available free-of-charge. Only applies for the relevant drives that are supported by STARTER! Technically, this means that the required object managers (Slave_OM (PROFIBUS) and Device_OM (PROFINET)) are automatically installed for an existing STEP7 full version.
      Note on the "Drive ES Basic" software product:
      • This option package with the MLFBs 6SW1700-5JA00-xAAx, suitable for SIMATIC STEP7 V5.x Classic, is still available subject to cost because, in addition to STARTER, it also contains the drive tools for MASTERDRIVES, SIMOREG and SIMODRIVE drives and a software update service (SUS).
    • SSP SINAMICS V4.6 can also be installed on SCOUT V4.3.1.x or STARTER V4.3.1.x versions.
    • If required SSPs are not installed, the user is informed of where they can be found on the memory card or on the Internet during the search via "Accessible nodes".
    • Support of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
    • Extensions of the motor spectrum:
      • New types / shaft heights for the 1FK7 and 1PH8 series.
      •  Motor data of the 1LE motors now available via code number (input of the individual motor data is no longer required).
    • Note on the "Convert parameter set to DB" function:
      • The function has been extended for the SINAMICS G120 with regard to the safety parameters; Drive ES SIMATIC V5.5 SP1 is required to process the created data block(s).
  • SINAMICS S120/S150/G130/G150/MV (GM150/GL150/SL150/SM120)
    • Configuration screen forms for the Web server integrated in SINAMICS
      • Configuration of the user administration via STARTER (or via the Web server itself).
      • This configuration is stored in the STARTER project and is loaded to the drive automatically during download. This saves having to set up a Web server for each drive.
      • STARTER can be used to fully deactivate the Web server at any time.
    • Project/converter parameterization can be stored in encoded form with STARTER.
      A distinction can be made between
      • Pure know-how protection: The parameterization is only encoded *). It can be transferred to any memory card and any CU, i.e. also copied/duplicated.
      • Know-how protection with additional copy protection: The serial numbers of the (target) memory card and CU are also included in the coding. The parameterization can therefore only be used on the specified HW.
    • For consistent utilization (i.e. online and offline configuration) of the triple overload capability, the following HW and FW functionality must be available.
      • Hardware:
        • Motor Modules with 50 mm: 3 A, 5 A, 9 A, 18 A, 2x 3 A, 2x 5 A, 2x 9 A
        • MLFBs: 6SL312x-xxxxx-xxx4
      • Software/firmware:
        • RT version as of V4.6
        • STARTER version as of V4.3 SP2
      • Field of application:
        • Load cycles as for Motor Modules Booksize Compact (3 x I_rated for 250 ms), mostly for highly dynamic applications.

The new firmware version V4.6 for the device series

  • SINAMICS S120/S150/G130/G150
    is supported by the SSP SINAMICS V4.6 integrated in the STARTER setup.
  • GM150/GL150/SL150/SM120
    is supported by the SSP SINAMICS MV V4.6 integrated in the STARTER setup.

These SSPs are automatically installed by the STARTER setup when the checkbox is activated.

More detailed information regarding the drive functions in the current SINAMICS firmware V4.6 can be found in the delivery release for the SINAMICS S120 firmware V4.6 under 67385242.

SINAMICS G110/G120-2/G120C/G120D-2/G120P

As of STARTER V4.3 SP1, devices in the G120 family already support upward compatibility to newer FW versions in the devices.
Drive in the STARTER project has a FW version < the FW version in the drive

  • It is possible to go online.
  • A download is possible.
  • Of course, only the functions of the old FW version can be parameterized in STARTER.
  • New PM240-2 Power Modules with frame sizes A-C.
  • Skip frequency bands for current and voltage measurement for analog inputs (G120) can be set with the absolute value (and therefore sign-independent).
  • The selection of the 87 Hz characteristic:
    • Can now be selected WITHOUT manual conversion of the motor values.
    • Is only possible in the "Delta" connection type.

    All type plate data of the motor is converted in the RT and in STARTER correctly for operation up to 87 Hz.

The new firmware version V4.6 for the device series SINAMICS G120C, G120D-2 and SINAMICS G120 with CU240x-2 is supported by the SSP SINAMICS G120 V4.6 integrated in the STARTER setup. These SSPs are automatically installed by the STARTER setup when the checkbox is activated. The CU250S-2 is NOT part of the SSP SINAMICS G120 V4.6; this CU will be provided later with a separate SSP.

More detailed information regarding the drive functions in the current SINAMICS firmware V4.6 can be found in the delivery release for the SINAMICS G120 firmware V4.6 under 67385031.

Information on DCC SINAMICS

Information on SINAMICS DCC for STARTER V4.3 SP2 and FW V4.6 can be found under 67826366.

Installation variants

STARTER can be operated in the following installation variants:

  • STARTER Standalone
  • STARTER integrated in STEP7 for applications with SIMATIC S7

  • This current STARTER version (V4.3 SP2 or more recent) can also be downloaded under 26233208. The download can be used by anyone who already has a STARTER license certificate of any version.

SINAMICS MICROMASTER STARTER can be used free of charge.

How to install and open existing projects

The installation of STARTER V4.3 SP2 can only be performed with administrator rights on the PG/PC. User rights are sufficient to operate STARTER (exception: Adding of additional PG/PC interfaces).

STARTER V4.3 SP2 only has one setup for both installation variants ("STARTER Standalone" and "STARTER DriveES").

  • If no STEP 7 is installed, the Standalone variants will be installed on your computer.
  • If STEP 7 is installed on your computer, the Drive ES variants will be installed/updated. (Note: Drive ES Basic must no longer be installed as a prerequisite (as of STARTER V4.3 SP2!)).
