TIA Portal engineering goes cloud

May 2019 IT in Manufacturing

With the TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation Portal) in the cloud, Siemens is expanding the options of using the engineering framework even more flexibly in the various phases of planning, engineering and commissioning. The possibilities that this offers are based on all the main features of TIA Portal V15.1, with the additional available innovations of TIA Portal options – the simulation of the application in the cloud environment with the help of S7-PLCSIM Advanced, full use of the application possibilities, for example the complete controller portfolio including the new, redundant S7-1500R/H controller, the configuration of visualisations with HMI Panels, PC-based runtime systems, and the fully integrated Sinamics drives portfolio.

Using the TIA Portal in the cloud provides fast, flexible, and web-based access to pre-installed environments using any type of hardware, without any need for installation, and at any time and place. This substantially reduces the effort required for testing new TIA Portal innovations, and so enables the TIA Portal to adapt flexibly to the user’s hardware and way of working: integrating the widest range of PC and tablet hardware into the development process of machines and plants increases flexibility, while reducing the engineering hardware requirements to a minimum. Also, there is no need for local installation on the hardware as access is web-based.

The scalability of the cloud architecture enables customised adaptions to the user’s requirements. This includes not only the performance, but also the individual adaption for users who would like to access pre-installed TIA Portal environments. This enables users to adapt very quickly without any waiting time. It can also substantially reduce the costs of installation and software maintenance.

The central storage of project data in a cloud-based FileShare permits fast, easy access no matter where the user is located. It also makes it significantly easier to distribute project data throughout the team. This can completely eliminate the need to copy data from one device to another.
