Code Conversion Services
Siemens no-charge code conversion service helps to protect your assets while upgrading you to the state-of-the-art TIA Portal that retains your current structures and naming conventions, allowing for familiarity from the start. This will allow you to meet the challenges of future automation architectures.
This service converts your legacy controller and/or HMI Panel code to:
- SIMATIC Advanced S7-1500 controller
- SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panel (select from 4, 7, 9, 12, 15, 19, or 22" widescreen display)
Your Siemens Account Manager will manage this process for you and deliver your new, advanced, modernized code.
In the event that code optimization/data “clean-up” is desired, a Certified Siemens Solution Partner is ready to assist.
We also have a large, experienced Distributor Network available.
