The Drive ES Basic V5.1 Service Pack 1 product will be released for sale and general availability with this Info.

Order No.[MLFB]: 6SW1700-5JA00-1AA0, 6SW1700-5JA00-1AA1

Release for general availability: 31st of August 2001

The above mentioned product has been improved. The main reason for this revision is the introduction of new functions. These include:

  • Starter - the commissioning (start-up) tool for MICROMASTER 4 - has now been integrated into Drive ES.
  • SimoCom A, the tool for POSMO A, is now integrated in Drive ES.
  • There is now a DNL to DB converter. Using this converter, parameter sets which are known from Drive Monitor and/or SIMOVIS, can be converted into a data block which can then be downloaded into a SIMATIC CPU. Using the already known "Download" function, it can then be downloaded when required from the CPU into the drives.
  • The converter for the HW Config to convert drive objects from the DVA-S7 format into the Drive ES format has also been included in this package (this product was used in Drive ES SIMATIC).
  • The user can individually set the timeout time in order to better support teleservice.
  • Upload and Download can now be executed incrementally in order to be able to re-transfer missing parameters after a coupling was interrupted without having to start from the very beginning again.
  • It is now possible to upgrade drives, existing in a project, to a higher firmware version without having to delete them and re-insert them as before.


-Debugged prompted parameterization of MASTERDRIVES MC for induction/non-catalog motors.

-Option card downloads have been revised.

-Call command in scripts has been improved.

-Problem in the free parameterization has been resolved as well as the possibility of being able to overwrite the actual list again when saving.
