The Siemens Sinamics S120 drive system now has an integrated web server to facilitate more efficient diagnostic and maintenance functionality for end users, integrators and system designers.

With this drive enhancement, a user may access the drive with any PC with a browser capable of Internet connectivity through a standard Ethernet interface to execute a variety of functions. If a wireless LAN (WLAN) router is networked, web pages can be viewed using other web-capable devices such as tablets and smart phones. Among the functions possible with the integrated web server are the ability to download a plant configuration, commission a drive from anywhere, perform firmware updates, access an immediate status overview on the drive, check and assess all alarm and fault messages. In addition, users can monitor and adapt all process or line parameter settings, archive machine documentation, including all notes taken, create customized server pages, set up user administration and access level for operator and service personnel, plus perform virtually all drive diagnostics and remote maintenance actions. This combination of service possibilities results in significant reductions in machine or line downtimes due to faster, more efficient diagnostic and maintenance procedures. This makes the drive suitable for applications where no special software or model version dependencies are desired. Series commissioning on a line is possible and the web server is compatible with all system security measures, such as a firewall. This web server capability is integral on Sinamics S120 drive firmware V4.6 or greater.
