The FW V2.3 SP1 update also allows users to transfer special application functions into the project menu. These are then easily accessible from a list which simplifies the setup of the selected functions using the Quick Start or Advanced Startup options. As a result, users can run their applications without requiring any specialist knowledge of the operating parameters.

The FW V2.3 SP1 upgrade offers special applications and functions for extended operation of the Sinamics G120X. For pumps, this includes de-ragging, pipe filling mode, cavitation protection, condensation protection and hibernation mode. For fans, the update includes flying restart, skip frequencies, and automatic restart functions.

The panel includes new functions and is available for the G120, G120X, G120XA, G120P, G120C, G120D, G110M Sinamics converters. The basic requirement for use of the new functions is Firmware Pool Version V4.7 SP3.
