SIMATIC Controllers Software ApplicationSIMATIC Controllers Software

SIMATIC software is a system of seamlessly interconnected software tools for the SIMATIC S7 and SIMATIC WinAC programmable controllers. It provides convenient functions for all phases of an automation project:

  • Planning, configuring and parameterization of hardware and communication.
  • Creation of a user program.
  • Documentation.
  • Testing, startup and service.
  • Process control.
  • Archiving.

SIMATIC Controllers Software Function

SIMATIC software uses standards:

  • DIN EN 6.1131-3:
    The SIMATIC programming languages comply with the standard DIN EN 6.1131-3. This reduces the familiarization and training overhead.
  • Microsoft Windows:
    The use of Windows-based applications and graphics greatly reduce the familiarization and training process.

SIMATIC software is integrated:

  • Common data management:
    All project data (e.g. symbol tables, configuration data and parameter assignment data) are stored in a central database. They are available for all tools. This saves time and reduces errors from multiple entries.
  • Integral tool system:
    User-friendly tools are available for every step of an automation project.
  • Compatibility:
    The SIMATIC software system platform is compatible with office systems.

SIMATIC software increases productivity:

  • Job-oriented tools:
    The tools are easy to use and optimized for each application.
  • Reusable program components:
    Completed program components can be stored in libraries and need only be copied over for subsequent projects.
  • Parallel processing:
    Subdividing a system into various projects allows you to distribute the processing to different personnel.
  • Integral diagnostics functions reduce downtimes and the costs associated with them.
