The difference: one for all
Machines consist of many components that handle specific tasks. Instead of programming each individual component separately, the TIA Portal enables engineers to focus on the best possible result by combining the whole process into a single engineering platform.
As everything is connected in the TIA Portal, when changes are made in one area, the affected parts are then adapted accordingly. Powerful code libraries, comprehensible visualization, and diagnostic tools further simplify the engineering of complex machines and related operations. The new TIA Portal V14 adds further enhancements.
All important automation components are integrated into the TIA Portal, so you can program everything from controllers, peripherals, and drives to HMI, safety, and motion control or even energy management. A consistent database and libraries with commonly used functions make engineering faster and even easier.
A digital workflow allows a virtual copy of machines and plants to be used to simulate and test every aspect before actually building the real thing. This „digital twin“ is also networked with operational IT and the cloud to enable even more flexibility, with the end result being higher quality products.
With increasing global competition it’s essential to know everything that is happening in a machine. With transparent operation you can make the right decisions, thanks to consistent data and in-depth analytics. This also raises energy efficiency, an increasingly important factor in gaining competitiveness.
