Latest generation of high-performance programming devices in a semi ruggedized notebook design

The SIMATIC Field PG with its robust magnesium housing is well prepared for mobile applications in harsh environments: Shocks and vibrations, but also electromagnetic disturbances in machine-oriented industrial environments do not affect the device.  Equipped with all important automation interfaces, the connection to machines and systems is possible via PROFIBUS as well as via two fast PROFINET interfaces. Serial connections are also supported. The SIMATIC memory cards can be deleted and programmed directly in the corresponding slots. The pre-installed engineering software makes the SIMATIC Field PG ready for immediate use. The TIA Portal simplifies fast and efficient configuring, commissioning, service and maintenance. The SIMATIC Field PG is available in two performance choices: Comfort and Advanced

SIMATIC Field PG – Ready to use

SIMATIC Field PG in a typical service mission

For mobile operations in industrial plants, the SIMATIC Field PG M5 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.
