Siemens Sinamics S120 drive system features an integrated web server to facilitate efficient diagnostic and maintenance functionality for end users, integrators and system designers alike. The drive system allows the user to access the Sinamics S120 with any PC with a browser capable of internet connectivity through an 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.

Available functions include the ability to download a plant configuration, commission a drive from anywhere, perform firmware updates, access an immediate status overview on the drive, and 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. 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.
