SIEMENS Simatic S5 PLC's
For over two decades, the SIMATIC S5 was successfully used in the process industry and in manufacturing automation as a complete controller family for a wide range of controller tasks. Many SIMATIC S5 control systems are still in reliable service today, but rapid technological changes and increased market demands place stringent requirements on the automation system of today and tomorrow. A migration from SIMATIC S5 controllers to SIMATIC S7 is therefore always a wise decision. However, an upgrade to a DCS might perform better depending on your application. For these circumstances the “Totally Integrated Automation” (TIA) concept of Siemens offers a lot of interesting possibilities.
SIEMENS PCS7 Software & Hardware
The SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system is a significant component of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), the unique basis offered by Siemens for uniform and customized automation in all sectors of the production, process and hybrid industries. Using TIA, Siemens is the only company able to offer uniform automation technology on one single platform for all applications of process automation, starting with input logistics, covering production or primary processes as well as downstream (secondary) processes, up to output logistics. This is suitable for optimization of all operating sequences of an entire company, i.e. from the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) level and MES (Management Execution System) level to the control level, right down to the field level.
