The reasons for revising the product and ongoing development of the above mentioned products are the market launch of STEP7 V5.4 SP5 and especially the update of the integrated commissioning STARTER tool to Version V4.1 SP5.


The following innovations have been implemented with respect to V5.4 SP4:

  • Starter Version V4.1 SP5 HF3, the commissioning tool for SINAMICS and MICROMASTER 4th Generation has been integrated.
  • SimoCom A Version V 04.05.07, the tool for POSMO A has been integrated.
  • SimoCom U Version V 12.02.07, the tool for SIMODRIVE 611U and POSMO CA/CD/SI has been integrated.
  • DriveMonitor Version V5.4 SP3, the tool for MASTERDRIVES and SIMOREG has been integrated.
    As a consequence, DriveMonitor can also be used under Windows VISTA without any Administration rights.
     

Advantages of a Drive ES Basic installation in comparison to an installation of the individual tools:

  • Advantages with respect to all of the individual tools (STARTER Stand alone, SIMOCOM U/A and DriveMonitor)
    • Drives can be more easily integrated into the hardware configuration of SIMATIC S7
      using the Object Manager (SlaveOM and DeviceOM) instead of using GSD files.
    • Communication that also extends beyond network limits using routing in the SIMATIC and SIMOTION stations.
      Without Drive ES, the individual tools can only communicate with drives, which are
      connected to the same subnetwork (PROFIBUS, PROFINET) as the engineering PC/PG.
    • The tool can be directly called from the SIMATIC Manager in a context sensitive way.
      When this is done, all of the network infrastructure information is automatically transferred for the routing.
       
  • Additional advantages with respect to DriveMonitor and SIMOCOM U/A
    • Data is archived/saved in the S7 project
       
  • Additional advantage with respect to DriveMonitor
    • Direct communication via PROFIBUS
      Without Drive ES, the DriveMonitor can only communicate with drives using the
      USS protocol via a serial interface or via a PROFIBUS-OPC server

Additional information on the integrated Starter Version V4.1 SP5 is available under Update-ID 40151878

The integrated commissioning tools are individually available and can be downloaded from the Internet.
If these individual downloads contain a more up-to-date version than the version integrated in the Drive ES Basic status when supplied, then these individual downloads can also be used regarding the drive function as a free-of-charge upgrade of an existing DRIVE ES Basic V5.4 SPx installation.

How can the new Drive ES Basic version be obtained?

Order it new!
With this release for general availability, Version V5.4 SP5 will be supplied for all orders that are received. The price remains the same.

For users who already have a version of Drive ES Basic V5.x!
Here, the upgrade version can be ordered that is offered at a far more attractive price than the full version. 
For reasons associated with memory space, the complete Drive ES Basic DVD V5.4 SP5 cannot be downloaded.
It can only be ordered in the form of the upgrade version that is available at a significantly lower price than the full version.

For users who have ordered the Software Update Service 6SW1700-0JA00-0AB2 or 6SW1700-0JA00-1AB2!
Users who have ordered and entered into a contract for the Software Update Service will automatically be sent the new version.
Detailed information regarding handling the Software Update Service is provided in Update-ID 13532008

Compatibility:
Windows 2000 SP4; Windows XP Professional SP2 and SP3; Windows VISTA Business SP1; Windows VISTA Ultimate SP1 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 and SP2 as well as STEP7 V5.3 SPx and STEP7 V5.4 SPx.

Detailed information on the compatibility is provided in Update-ID 18495518

Reminder:
The versions V5.4 SPx from Drive ES Basic are the last versions that will be available also for an independent stand-alone installation.
From version V5.5 and higher, Drive ES Basic will be only offered as a pure option package to SIMATIC STEP7, i.e. Drive ES Basic from V5.5 will only be able to be installed in addition to an already installed full STEP7 version.
Nothing will change for SIMATIC S7 users.

The feedback that we have received relating to standalone applications of Drive ES Basic outside the SIMATIC-S7 environment indicates that there is no longer any demand for this.
As a consequence, the stand-alone installation will no longer be supported from Drive ES Basic Version V5.5 and higher.

Total discontinuation of the product versions Drive ES Basic V5.0, V5.1 and V5.2

With the release of the new version V5.4 SP5 , the "ancient" versions of Drive ES Basic V5.0, V5.1 and V5.2 UPGRADE will be totally discontinued, i.e. effective immediately, these versions will no longer be available. The SINGLE LICENSE V5.2 will be discontinued and will only be available as spare part.
