The latest high-performance programming device in semi-ruggedized notebook design

For mobile operations in industrial plants, the SIMATIC Field PG M5 offers both rugged hardware and pre-installed TIA Portal engineering software for fast and efficient configuring, commissioning, service and maintenance.

The SIMATIC Field PG hereby offers all interfaces required for these tasks: For connecting to the automation process, the SIMATIC Field PG is equipped both with a PROFIBUS interface and two high-speed PROFINET interfaces. SIMATIC memory cards can be programmed directly in corresponding slots.

The SIMATIC Field PG is designed to withstand shocks and vibrations and to resist electromagnetic radiation in the industrial environment close to machines.

Two versions of the SIMATIC Field PG are available, both perfectly optimized for engineering with the TIA Portal: Comfort and Advanced.

Fit for industry

  • Increased protection against electromagnetic interference in harsh industrial environments by means of complete shielding (EMC/EMS tested))

  • Protection against shocks and vibrations thanks to a rugged, yet lightweight magnesium enclosure and protector strips on exposed corners

  • Dirt resistant industrial design with dark color scheme and high-contrast keyboard with abrasion-resistant laser inscription

  • Lightweight, compact power supply and a safe grip facilitate mobile use in alternating sites of operation

  • Option for connecting external monitors via DVI-I or Display Port as well as an USB docking station for the normal office environment
