Programming device SIMATIC Field PG

Your new semi ruggedized high-performance notebook

With the SIMATIC Field PG, you are ideally equipped for mobile use in harsh environments: Shocks and vibrations, as well as electromagnetic interference in machine-oriented industrial environments, do not affect your work. Communication with machines and plants is easy via PROFIBUS and PROFINET as well as via typical serial connections. SIMATIC memory cards can be deleted and programmed directly in the device. Thanks to pre-installed engineering software, you are immediately ready for fast and efficient configuration, commissioning, maintenance and servicing.

Here you can configure your SIMATIC Field PG directly

Benefits in a nutshell

SIMATIC Field PG – Ready to use

SIMATIC Field PG in a typical service mission

For mobile operations in industrial plants, the SIMATIC Field PG offers both rugged hardware and pre-installed TIA Portal engineering software for fast and efficient configuring, commissioning, service and maintenance.

Thanks to the semi-ruggedized design, the SIMATIC Field PG is especially suitable for use in harsh industrial environments: From engineering of a plant in an office-like environment to testing and servicing close to a machine, all the way to maintenance jobs on the factory floor, everything is possible.
