SIMOCODE pro – Synonymous with Motor Management (TM)

For 30 years, SIMOCODE, Siemens' intelligent motor management system, has been a leader in controlling and monitoring low-voltage, constant-speed motors all over the world. SIMOCODE’s control, protection and monitoring capabilities, via various communication protocols, including web server and OPC server, can now give you more data in more ways than ever before.


General Performance

Ideal for the entry level

The smart and compact motor management system for direct-on-line, reversing, and star-delta (wye-delta) starters or for controlling a motor starter protector or soft starter. The basic system includes a current measuring module and the basic unit for current or thermal overload protection. Communication options include Profibus and Profinet, and one expansion module can be added (additional I/O, ground-fault detection or temperature module).


High Performance

The fully professional solution for every motor

The SIMOCODE pro High Performance motor management system is variable, intelligent and can be individually adapted to suit any requirement, including fail-safe motor control.  The basic system includes a current and/or voltage module and a basic unit for current or thermal overload protection.  Communication options include Profibus, Profinet, Modbus RTU, EtherNet/IP and OPC UA. Expansion is possible including a separate current/voltage measuring module, ground-fault module, temperature module, standard digital module, fail-safe digital module and an analog module.


Easy Configuration

Easy configuration with SIMOCODE ES

Ease of planning, high configuration reliability, rapid commissioning as well as parameterization, diagnostics, and maintenance-relevant monitoring functions: All these are characteristics of convenient engineering with SIMOCODE ES, the central software for configuration, commissioning, operation, and diagnostics of SIMOCODE pro devices. Integrated in the uniform engineering framework of the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal), SIMOCODE ES represents the efficient and intuitive solution for all automation tasks.

Powerful solutions for all areas of the process industry

Wherever motors keep things running in the process industries, SIMOCODE is at the technological forefront. Market requirements are increasing. Solutions that provide greater transparency of measured data, reliable residual current monitoring, more flexible applications, space requirements, and system redundancy are in high demand.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Minimized downtime with less maintenance work
  • Energy and cost savings over the entire plant life cycle
  • Simple use
  • Scalable solutions
  • A choice of networked or autonomous configuration

Easy and fast

With SIMOCODE ES, you benefit from numerous advantages, including convenient parameterization in the device view, graphical commissioning via drag & drop, and online representation of signal states using straightforward measuring curves for diagnostic purposes.

Easy and standardized

The PCS 7 SIMOCODE library enables simple and easy integration of SIMOCODE pro into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system. The PCS 7 library contains standardized motor blocks and faceplates for controlling or operating and monitoring the motor. For the plant-wide device parameter setting and diagnostics, SIMOCODE pro is also integrated into SIMATIC PDM (Process Device Manager). This means that a standard, unified tool is embedded in the process control system for intelligent field devices such as SIMOCODE pro.


Advantages at a glance

  • Consistent, uniform integration in SIMATIC PCS 7
  • Standardized blocks for easy integration and optimized operation
  • Easy-to-integrate safety technology thanks to SIMOCODE pro Safety
  • Greater process transparency due to enhanced information density in the process control system

Easy and future-proof

Configuration and commissioning of SIMOCODE pro can also be realized in the TIA Portal without additional software.

As device configuration forms part of STEP 7, each individually-created configuration is loaded into the PLC and automatically transferred to the SIMOCODE pro devices connected via PROFIBUS/PROFINET.


Advantages at a glance

  • Very simple operation; SIMOCODE pro configured without the need for additional tools
  • Fast, simple integration in SIMATIC through shared data management and a uniform user interface
  • The TIA Portal is designed so that all future software developments to do with SIMOCODE pro can be seamlessly integrated
