With SIMATIC STEP 7 (TIA Portal) users configure, program, test and diagnose the basic, advanced and distributed controllers of each generation, whether it is PLC- or PC-based, incl. Software controllers.
With its vast array of easy-to-use functions, the STEP 7 software significantly boosts efficiency in all of your automation tasks. Whether for configuring hardware, establishing communications, programming, testing, commissioning and service, documentation and archiving, or operational and/or diagnostic functions, the software sets the benchmark in its field.

STEP 7 V 5.6

STEP 7 V5.6 - the proven solution with tried and tested functionality

SIMATIC STEP 7 is the world's best known and most widely used engineering software in industrial automation. SIMATIC STEP 7 V5.6  is the proven programming software for the controller families S7-300, S7-400, C7 and WinAC. 

  

Information on STEP 7 Versions
For programming controllers of the latest generation S7-1200, S7-1500, ET 200SP CPU and S7-1500 Software Controller you need STEP 7 (TIA Portal) Engineering Software.
Of course you can program the S7-300, S7-400 and SIMATIC WinAC controllers with this software as well.

STEP 7 Professional 2017 includes the STEP 7 V5.6 basic software and additional editors. New installations of STEP 7 Professional 2017 are only available as combo licenses together with STEP 7 Professional V15 (TIA Portal). This combo license for both platforms enables you to work using both STEP 7 (TIA Portal) as well as traditional engineering software.

 

System innovation and migration
Higher productivity, efficiency and availability through modernization
To stay competitive, machines and facilities have to be continually adapted to the latest requirements.
If your automation system is no longer up to date, it is time for a modernization.
