Drive ES Basic is a software to start-up, parameterize, optimize and diagnose Siemens drives (DriveMonitor / SIMOCOM U). The Drive startup tools (DriveMonitor; SIMOCOM U/A, Starter) are integral components of Drive ES Basic, thus enabling the user to deal with the drives in the same way as with the Siemens automation technology. Data management of both automation and drive technology is consistent. It guarantees common data archiving. By means of Drive ES, Siemens drives are fully integrated in Totally Integrated Automation
