Feature Pack 5.1

Release: September 2022 (V2022.9) | New additions to Feature Pack 5.1 in detail


Here are the latest features (new and only available as beta function):

  • For SITOP power supplies a primary protection device like a motorstarter protector or miniature circuit breaker can be dimensioned. Additionally a cable dimensioning and short circuit calculation will be proceeded for the primary side.
  • For load feeders with Motor Starters for ET200SP now the cable dimensioning and short circuit calculation is available. 
  • Motor Starter for ET200SP can now be merged into load groups. For this load group a line protection device can be dimensioned.
  • For load feeders with soft starter it is now possible to select coordination type 2.

Feature Pack 5: Power supplies and portfolio extensions

Release: June 2022 (V2022.6) | New additions to Feature Pack 5 in detail

A new feature for the configuration of the UL main disconnect is that you can additionally select devices with ETU 560, 820, 830, 850 und 860.


The following functions are new and only available as beta function:

  • Configuration of load feeders with power supplies: for IEC networks combinations with SITOP power supplies can be dimensioned now. A pre-configured SITOP power supply can be selected as electrical load. For this feeder a suitable protection device is configured and a cable dimensioning is proceeded.
  • For load feeders with hybrid starters for ET 200SP load groups are now supported.
  • For IEC load feeders with user defined loads molded-case circuit-breaker 3VA with system protection can be configured.

Feature Pack 4.1: hybrid starter technology and additional load types

Release: March 2022 (V2022.03) | New additions to Feature Pack 4.1 in detail

Feature Pack 4.1 makes it possible to select circuit breakers and gG fuses for IEC user-defined loads in the Control Panel Design software. The feature pack includes the design of load feeder combinations with 3RW soft starters for IEC networks as beta versions as well as the ability to dimension and configure SIRIUS hybrid starters for ET 200SP – also for IEC networks.


Additional Load types

  • Selection of further control devices for IEC user-defined loads (5SY SENTRON circuit breakers, gG fuses)
  • Soft starter simulation with 3RW (beta function)
  • Hybrid starter for ET 200SP
  • Motor starters for IEC networks (beta function)

Feature Pack 4.0 – soft starter simulation and UL main switch selection

Release: December 2021 (V2021.12) | New additions to Feature Pack 4.0 in detail

This feature pack contains many new functions and makes electrical engineering even easier. The latest version of the Control Panel Design software lets you design drive solutions with soft starters as well as main switches according to UL standards.


Soft starter simulation and UL main switch selection

  • Soft starter dimensioning with 3RW (technology preview)
  • Circuit breaker design according to UL 508A (with circuit-breaker 3VA5/6 and 3LD switch-disconnector)
  • Switchgear selection and line dimensioning for user-defined loads in IEC networks (beta function)
