SINAMICS S120 - Upgrade to TIA Portal and Startdrive (DR-S12-UP)

  • In this course you will learn to commission the SINAMICS S120 inverter with the PC tool Startdrive in the TIA Portal. This course is aimed at users of the previous PC tool STARTER. Due to your previous knowledge, you can quickly familiarize yourself with the new tool during the course.


  • You already have good knowledge of the drive system SINAMICS S120. You use the software STARTER for commissioning and diagnostics. Now you change over to current software Startdrive in the TIA Portal.
  • With that you can optimally integrate your drives into the automation. In the course you get to know the advantages and differences in comparison with STARTER. You can therefore use the new possibilities of the TIA Portal purposefully.
  • You will deepen your theoretical knowledge through numerous practice-oriented exercises in our remote learning environment with SINAMICS S120.
