Highlights at a Glance

  • Possibility of cyclic data collection and data forwarding for the cloud-based analysis and further processing

  • Independent of the technological project and of the automation systems used

  • The maintenance station is compact, flexible and expandable

  • Several maintenance stations per project possible

  • Supports a wide range of communication types and gateways between bus systems such as Ethernet, PROFINET, PROFIBUS DP/PA and HART

  • Parameter assignment and detailed diagnostics of the field devices are performed via the integrated SIMATIC PDM


SIMATIC PDM MS as a product of the SIMATIC PCS 7 product family

The SIMATIC PDM Maintenance Station is a TIA product from the SIMATIC PCS 7 family and thus takes part in all of its innovations:

  • Based on the software components of the process control system,
    SIMATIC PCS 7

  • All system functions and the user guidance are identical with the 
    SIMATIC PCS 7 Maintenance Station

  • SIMATIC PDM MS is specially designed for the monitoring, data collection, diagnostics and management of smart field devices


Data evaluation from any location, at any time

As the digitalization progresses, there is increasing need to collect data from the entire production plant, and to evaluate and harness the data in management or cloud-based systems – and all this easily and economically. Field devices are also becoming ever smarter, i.e. they can provide themselves more and more of such data and information, and transfer them to other components in the network via bus systems.

With SIMATIC PDM MS, field device data and information can be cyclically provided for transfer into cloud-based applications. This leaves the path open, e.g. for condition monitoring functions to be implemented independent of the automation system as cloud-based applications. Cyclical collection of data in SIMATIC PDM MS results in long-term data series, from which the applications can develop statements on the lifecycle or intelligent service strategies.
