The SINAMICS drive family has been extended with the know-how protection for an efficient and easy-to-use function for safe protection of your engineering investment. The programming of the parameters is often based on long-term, usually iteratively found out and accumulated experiences. Therefore, it is important that this valuable information does not fall into the wrong hands. Equally important is to ensure the integrity of the machine or plant. Through the functions of write and copy protection also manipulations and unauthorized copies are safely prevented beside the reengineering. All that protects your ideas and engineering expenses, thus ensuring your investments.
protecting parameter settings from inadvertent changes by the user
Protecting parameter settings from inadvertent changes by the user. The controller still has complete access
The user can only read parameters and cannot inadvertently change the device's parameter settings
Write protection applies to all interfaces and the drive unit
The controllers still have complete access to the device. Cyclic and acyclic communication is possible
protection of the machine manufacturer's intellectual property and protection from changes to the parameter settings. This provides protection from the reproduction of machines and safeguards your investment.
The parameter settings are hidden and locked. They can still be transferred to any memory card and any CU, i.e. also copied/duplicated as a "blackbox".
Blocking of parameters that end users are not allowed to view or change
Re-engineering of the drive configuration is reliably prevented
The machine manufacturer's know-how
Machine protection, e.g. torque limits cannot be changed
Parameters to which the end user should have access must be added to an exception list
Machine manufacturer's know-how remains protected
Machine manufacturer defines what possible settings are available to the end user
The serial numbers of the (target) memory card and CU are also included in the protection algorithm. The parameter settings can therefore only be used on the specified hardware
The parameter settings can be linked and locked with the serial number of the memory card and the control unit
The parameterization can be linked directly to the memory card and the control unit
Reliable electronic transfer of the parameter settings from the machine manufacturer to the end user
If spare parts are required, the machine manufacturer can easily transfer the adjusted data via e-mail
This reduces the end user's machine downtime
For the secure operation of Siemens products and solutions, it is necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and integrate each component into a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Third-party products that may be in use should also be considered. For more information about industrial security, visit http://www.siemens.com/industrialsecurity
