With the integration of the SIMOTION motion control system in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal, the comprehensive motion control functionality of SIMOTION, including its deep integration of the drive technology (Integrated Drive Systems, IDS) from SIMOTION V4.4, can now also be used in the TIA Portal from V13.

In addition, the TIA Portal provides new, particularly efficient and user-friendly mechanisms for hardware and network configuring in one consistent fully-graphic editor, as well as the user-friendly connection to the HMI (including the new SIMATIC Comfort Panels and the Basic Panels of the second generation).

All the automation components are united in the TIA Portal project.
