The most comprehensive engineering software for demanding controller tasks
STEP 7 Professional – the ultimate engineering tool for configuration and programming for all SIMATIC controllers.
STEP 7 (TIA-Portal) helps you solve your engineering tasks intuitively and efficiently. Due to its integration into the TIA Portal STEP 7 offers impressive performance in every work and programming step thanks to its transparency, intelligent user navigation and straightforward workflows.
Functions such as drag & drop, copy & paste and AutoCompletion make work much quicker and easier.
The engineering of controllers with STEP 7 Professional comprises:
Configuration and programming of SIMATIC controllers S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300, S7-400, the
S7-1500 Software controller as well as WinAC for PC-based controllers
Device and network configuration
for all automation components
Diagnostics and online
for the entire project
Motion and technology
for the integrated Motion and PID functions
SIMATIC WinCC Basic is also included here for simple visualization tasks with SIMATIC Basic Panels.
STEP 7 (TIA Portal) - the ideal engineering system for every phase of the production life cycle enables:
Reduced engineering times
thanks to innovative programming language innovations, integrated functions and graphical configuration
with efficient error localization thanks to integrated system diagnostics, real-time trace and high-performance online functions
thanks to easy remote maintenance and diagnostics with Web server and teleservice
with reusable components, libraries and compatibility
