Drive ES Basic
For entry into the world of Totally Integrated Automation and the possibility of using routing
beyond network boundaries and also SIMATIC teleservice.
Drive ES Basic is the basic software to parameterize all of the drives both online and offline.
Using Drive ES Basic, the automation and the drives are processed on the SIMATIC
Manager screen. Drive ES Basic is the starting point for common data archiving for complete
projects and for extending the use of the SIMATIC teleservice to drives. Drive ES Basic
provides the engineering tools for the new motion control functions - peer-to-peer data traffic,
equidistance and isochronous operation with PROFIBUS DP.
Drive ES SIMATIC
Easy parameter assignment of the STEP 7 communications program instead of
Drive ES SIMATIC requires that STEP 7 has first been installed. It incorporates a
SIMATIC block library; this means that the PROFIBUS interface can be simply and reliably
programmed in the SIMATIC CPU for the drives.
The separate, time consuming programming of the data exchange functions between
the SIMATIC-CPU and the drive is eliminated.
For Drive ES users, it is as simple as this:
Copy – Adapt – Load – Ready.
Harmonized, proven function blocks are transferred from the library into your project.
Frequently required functions are completely programmed:
• Complete diagnostic buffers are automatically read from the drive
• Complete parameter sets are automatically downloaded into the drive from
• Part parameter sets (e.g. for recipe and product change) are automatically downloaded
• Complete parameter assignment or partial parameter sets are uploaded from the drive
Drive ES PCS 7
integrates drives with PROFIBUS interface into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system.
Drive ES PCS 7 requires a pre-installed SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system from
Version 5.2 onwards. Drive ES PCS 7 provides a function block library with function blocks
for the drives and the corresponding faceplates for the operator station. This means that
the drives can be operated from the PCS 7 process control system.
