SIMATIC Controllers Software Application
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.
Testing, startup and service.
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.
