6. Condition on delivery of SIMOTION SCOUT / SIMOTION SCOUT update contracts

SIMOTION SCOUT

The Version V4.3 SP1 HF12 replaces the current SCOUT and SCOUT Stand-alone V4.3 SP1 HF3 versions delivered. Thus, when ordering software, only the Version 4.3 SP1 HF12 will be delivered.

The SIMOTION SCOUT Version V4.3 SP1 HF12 requires the version STEP7 V5.5 SP2 or V5.5 SP3 as option package for STEP7. SCOUT Stand-alone V4.3 SP1 includes the STEP7 components of the Version V5.5 SP2. SCOUT and SCOUT Stand-alone have been released for the operating systems Windows XP Professional SP3 resp. Windows 7 / Windows 7 SP1 Professional and Ultimate (32 and 64 bit).

SIMOTION SCOUT software versions must be ordered stating the above-stated order numbers.

Important note:
The existing automatic substitution to the current version delivered in case of new orders placed for older versions does no longer apply. Thus, spare parts need no longer be ordered when purchasing older versions.
As the Version 4.3 SP1 HF12 replaces the previous version delivered, the previous Hotfix Versions for V4.3 can no longer be ordered.

SIMOTION SCOUT update contracts

Users who have concluded a valid Software Update Service contract for SCOUT or SCOUT Stand-alone are automatically supplied with SCOUT or SCOUT Stand-alone V4.3 SP1 HF12 (delivered on DVD). Users who have not concluded an update service can order the current software version stating the above-stated order numbers.

For more detailed information, please contact your local Siemens office.

SINAMICS Support Package

If you wish to use the SINAMICS V4.6 with SIMOTION SCOUT V4.3 SP1 HF12, you must install the SINAMICS Support Package "SSP SINAMICS V4.6". The SSP is provided on the SIEMENS Industry Online Support pages under /cs/document/26233208?caller=view&lc=de-WW

The information section "SINAMICS MICROMASTER STARTER V4.3 SP1 HF2/HF5 (previous version)" includes a table listing the download files of the individual SSPs:

  • SSP, SINAMICS G120 V4.6: SSP_SINAMICS_G120_V4_6.zip
  • SSP, SINAMICS MV V4.6: SSP_SINAMICS_MV_V4_6.zip
  • SSP, SINAMICS S120, G150, G130 V4.6: SSP_SINAMICS_V4_6.zip
  • Online Help: Vol_3_STARTER_V43_SP2_HELPS.zip

Important note:
The SINAMICS Integrated for SIMOTION D4xx-2 remains V4.5.
SINAMICS V4.6 drive functions, which require, in addition to the new SSP parameter description, also the newer STARTER Version V4.3 SP2, will only be provided with the next SIMOTION full version.

SIMOTION CamTool

The Software CamTool V3.0 SP2 is included in the complete SCOUT or SCOUT Stand-alone package, the necessary license must be ordered separately. Existing CamTool V3.0 licenses remain valid. Licenses for CamTool lower than V3.0 must be upgraded to the current Version 3.0 by ordering an upgrade (6AU1810-0FA30-2XE0).
