这个产品发布的发布说明中已经很明确了 Step7 5.6的到来
Product announcement Drive ES Basic Maintenance
In order to ensure the functionality of STEP 7 projects with integrated Siemens drives (not MICROMASTER 4 or SINAMICS), we plan to introduce the software product Drive ES Basic Maintenance V5.6.
Why is this new version of “Drive ES Basic Maintenance” necessary?
With immediate effect, the existing product Drive ES Basic V5.5 SP5 has been discontinued and is available as spare part only. (That means, the software will not be updated regarding the operating systems, and the drive tools will not be updated).
STEP 7 V5.6 will support Windows 10.
Drive ES Basic Maintenance V5.6 and the drive tools included also support Windows 10.
Drive ES Basic Maintenance V5.6 ensures that currently existing STEP 7 V5.x projects with integrated drives continue to be functional (for all operating system environments released by STEP 7 V5.6).
Regarding MICROMASTER 4 and SINAMICS drives which have been integrated in STEP 7 V5.x projects, this integration feature will be ensured by the STARTER.
STARTER is not included in Drive ES Basic Maintenance V5.6.
“Drive ES Basic Maintenance” will include the following commissioning tools:
