The innovative control system - SIMATIC PCS neo

Are you keeping up with the latest innovations in automation?

Recent trends towards digitalization, standardization, and optimization are driving new requirements for control systems. 

 

Find out how your control system can help you collaborate on automation engineering projects and manage plant operations effectively, securely, and from any location. 

 

Take a step towards digitalization by watching this short video about SIMATIC PCS neo.

System Access

Web Based Process Control for Flexible System Access

Imagine if you could operate your plant from any device with a web browser

With SIMATIC PCS neo, no local software or licenses are required on client workstations, opening up new opportunities for remote and mobile operations!

 

To see the flexibility provided by a web-based control system, watch this short demo.

Usability

Usability vs Capability

Can your control system provide both?

In a recent survey, 95% of respondents said the usability of the control system is very important. Do you agree? What do you look for in a control system when considering ease of use?

 

SIMATIC PCS neo provides a consistent and intuitive user interface for all engineering tasks – from hardware engineering and control logic configuration to process display development and network planning. Users no longer need to switch between different editors and multiple databases to complete their DCS project, reducing the time and effort to engineer and maintain the system. You can even switch from the engineering to the operations view in the same user interface!

 

To find out more about what makes SIMATIC PCS neo user friendly, read this eBook.

Scalability

Plug and produce, a shorter time-to-market and increased flexibility for plant operators

Stop investing weeks of time in integrating package units into your control system! 

Plug and produce capabilities are enabled by modular automation.

 

How does it work? Package unit suppliers provide pre-tested, automated, and executable modules to the plant operator. These standardized packages include controller information and process pictures that are imported and orchestrated into the overarching control system, providing uniform operation of all process units.

Collaboration

Remote support for control system engineering

When you run into a problem during commissioning that can’t be resolved by anyone onsite, what do you do? 

How easy is it to pull in an engineer working remotely for support?

 

With SIMATIC PCS neo, the remote engineer just needs to connect to the server, open a session, and they can begin diagnosing the problem. After the engineer identifies and corrects the problem, they can publish their changes and make them available to users at the plant automatically!

 

To see how it works for yourself, check out this demo.

Digitalization

Digitalization – the path to innovation in process control

Your process control technology is a key lever for gaining a competitive edge 

In this dynamic age of digitalization, the system you choose needs to address the complex challenges of both today and tomorrow.

 

One of the key roadblocks towards digitalization is inconsistency. Inconsistency of control systems across your fleet of plants and inconsistency of engineering workflows from project to project.

 

Learn more about how you can leverage recent innovations in process control for safer, more efficient operation.

Cyber Security

What will process control look like in 20 years?

We’ve come a long way in the last 20 years but there’s still a long way to go

The world is rapidly changing how we live, work, and communicate and security requirements need to adapt to keep up with the influx of new technologies. Are you prepared for the future?

 

In this blog post, Siemens Head of DCS Innovation shares where he predicts process automation is headed and how you can get ready.

 

Find out how control systems are adopting the “Security by Design” principle, modern encryption methods, and the Defense-in-Depth concept to provide a comprehensive approach to plant protection

Innovation
