Added Innovation in Simulation Tools

In 2021, Siemens celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept of end-to-end communication, integrated engineering and data management. Today, TIA provides the foundation for digital transformation, enabling a smart link between the production environment (OT) and office environment (IT) of manufacturing industrial enterprises.

TIA Portal is the engineering framework for configuring, programming and putting automation systems into operation. The recent release of TIA Portal version 17 has added new library handling, updated security features for industrial security and innovations in the WinCC Unified System.

TIA Portal V17 includes the following new features:

  • New PLC Logic Editor-Cause and Effect Matrix (CEM) enables users to create simple interconnections of ready-made logic modules for S7-1500 and S7-1200 PLCs
  • Several new enhancements in the TIA framework for Project Library and Global Libraries
  • Additional functionality in User Management and Access Control supports more flexibility
  • Industrial Security expanded with new easy to apply wizards and concepts based on security by design and security by default
  • Numerous innovations within the HMI segment based on the WinCC Unified engineering
  • TIA Portal Options, OPC-UA, Test Suite, Version Control Interface and PLCSIM Advanced have also improved the user experience and expanded use cases, offering more functionality for open communications, code management and testing applications.
