SINAMICS S120 firmware version V4.7 HF32 for the CU320-2 and CU310-2

The following software can be downloaded:

From version V4.7 HF7, the runtime SINAMICS S120 firmware as download is not subject to any export restrictions, as the output frequency has been limited to 550 Hz.
It is not subject to the Iran embargo, and is not listed in the EC Dual Use regulation.
It does not involve a US product.
If higher output frequencies are required, then the "High output frequency" license must be purchased, Article number: 6SL3074-0AA02-0AA0.
It can also be ordered as Z option J01 together with the CF card. (see 104020669)
The license "High output frequency" is subject to export restrictions.

Alternatively, a new memory card (CF) with the following Article number can be used:

  • without performance enhancement:
    Article number: 6SL3054-0EH00-1BA0
  • with performance enhancement firmware option:
    Article number: 6SL3054-0EH01-1BA0

List of faults and alarms

The "alarmlist_*.xml" are not necessary for the correct operation of the firmware and the associated STARTER. They only contain a text-based export of the "Alarm messages" of the S120 in the "xml" format (this format guarantees a correct text-based representation, independent of the wide range of fonts that exist worldwide; this means that they can be converted error-free into other formats).
Customers occasionally request this exported text so that they can use it in their own applications or integrate it into external devices. As a consequence, as far as the S120 product is concerned, no additional support can be guaranteed here.

Within the scope of firmware version V4.7 the new version of STARTER V4.4 will also be made available (see 93904214).
As an alternative to the installation of STARTER V4.4, you can also extend existing STARTER V4.3 SP2 or V4.3 SP3 installations by installing the available drive SSPs (see 26233208) for Firmware V4.7. Thus, you can use the new functions included in the Firmware V4.7 with STARTER.
SINAMICS S120 is not supported in Startdrive V13.
STARTER is used for commissioning.
The hardware configuration of the S120 on the TIA Portal can be implemented using GSD/GSDML files, see73257075 (manual configuring) and92022677 (configuring using STARTER script).
