Tutorials

Tutorials on functionality and operation

The Software TIA Selection Tool guides users quickly and easily to error-free device selection and configuration in every automation project. In the tutorials, we show you tips and tricks for important functions in the TIA Selection Tool in just a few minutes. Select the topics that are relevant to you - we explain how you can achieve the desired result quickly, easily and intelligently.

Projects export to TIA Portal

In this video tutorial we will show you how to export projects from the TIA-Selection-Tool into the engineering framework TIA Portal. 

We also show you the reverse procedure.

24V DC Load View

Manually calculating consumption values, keeping reserves in mind, comparing requirements, and checking various configuration options? That's a thing of the past – now, thanks to the TIA Selection Tool, you can add correctly designed SITOP power supplies conveniently and securely to your projects.

Library

This mini tutorial will show you how to use the library function. 

The library is a personalized catalouge in which you can save device configuration for later use in projects.

Drive dimensioning

Product selection and drive design combined in a single tool.

We will show you how you can use the TIA Selection Tool not only to configure your system, but also to design your drives simply and safely. For this purpose, the drive dimensioning integrated in the TIA Selection Tool is used.

Drive dimensioning (via SIZER V3.x import)

You can use the interface for "SIZER for Siemens Drives" to switch from the TIA Selection Tool to SIZER in order to configure your drive solution, including controller and motion control. You can then apply the configuration to the TIA Selection Tool and complete it there.

IO-Link

Using IO-Link in switchboards and on the field level simplifies the integration of sensors and actuators. It ensures maximal consistency and efficiency on the last steps to the process. With The TIA Selection Tool, we show you a clever and easy way to connect components using the IO-Link communication system.

Option handling

The configuration control or the co-called option handling enables you to expand the basic configuration of your project with specific alternative configurations. Learn how to set up modular configurations in a single project in no time, using the TIA Selection Tool.

Interplay of the desktop and the online version

In this video tutorial we will show you how you can exploit the seemless interplay between the desktop and the online version of the TIA Selection Tool to add even more efficency to your work processes.

AS-Interface

AS-Interface represents an open and manufacturer-independent bus system. Actuators and sensors are connected to controllers via an unshielded 2-wire line – with simultaneous transmission of data and energy. We show you how to clearly structure your field level with the manufacturer-neutral fieldbus standard in the TIA Selection Tool and connect it to the automation level.

SIMATIC ET 200AL

Make use of the compact IO system SIMATIC ET 200AL that allows the connection of sensors and actuators in extremely restricted places. We show you how to configure our distributed I/O with protection rating IP65/67 and integrate it into your automation solution with the TIA Selection Tool.

TIA Selection Tool cloud

In this video tutorial we would like to introduce you to the TIA Selection Tools browser based version TST cloud. 

It is a version that must not need to be installed and was developed exclusively for mobile devices.

Display prices

With the new function "Logon to the Industry Mall" the regional list prices are displayed in the TIA Selection Tool.

Plant Configuration

The TIA Selection Tool considerably simplifies the structuring of a plant configuration: Set up a plant project that matches your requirements in just a few minutes!

Migration

The migration wizard of the TIA Selection Tool allows just with some clicks to migrate the configurations of the S7-300 and S7-400 to 

S7-1500, the ET 200S to ET 200SP and the ET 200M to ET 200MP.

SIRIUS modular system

Simple device selection with the TIA Selection Tool

The video shows how to get with a few clicks to the right product of the SIRIUS modular system in the TIA Selection Tool. 

• Filtering according to all technical characteristics 

• Display and selection of the suitable accessories

With just a few clicks to the new switching device

Simple device selection with the TIA Selection Tool

The video shows how to get with a few clicks to the right product of the SIRIUS modular system in the TIA Selection Tool. 

  • Filtering according to all technical characteristics 
  • Display and selection of the suitable accessories
  • up to the entire system configuration such as for the SIRIUS Modular System, Simocode or SIRIUS Act

Planning sketches 

In this video tutorial we show you the function "Planning sketches". The planning sketch allows the true-to-scale placement of devices on profile rails in boxes with defined dimensions.
