Siemens extends TIA Portal engineering framework

15 February 2013

Siemens Industry has extended its Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal engineering framework with a number of new functions, adding power and efficiency to the existing framework’s capabilities

Version 12 enables all drives of the Sinamics G converter series from Siemens to be integrated into the TIA Portal. In addition, further diagnostic functions have been integrated including extended safety functionalities for Siemens Simatic S7-1500 and the Profinet communication performance.

The programming languages provide greater efficiency and new security functions give improved protection and enhanced security against third party manipulation such as replay attacks, as well as superior copy and access solutions.

Within the framework of the new version of the TIA Portal there are also updates for engineering tools for the configuration, programming, commissioning and servicing of the Siemens automation devices and drive systems. These include engineering systems: Simatic Step 7 V12 for Simatic controllers, Simatic WinCC V12 for HMI systems (Simatic HMI) and Sinamics Startdrive V12 for the Sinamics G converter family.

The Siemens TIA Portal enables users to perform automation and drive tasks quickly and intuitively. The software architecture is designed for high efficiency and user-friendliness, and it is suitable for both first-time and experienced users. It offers a standardised operating concept for controllers, human machine interface (HMI) and drives, shared data storage and automatic data consistency, for example, during configuration, communication and diagnosis. It also offers powerful libraries covering all automation objects.
