TELEPERM M is a process control system that set standard up until the mid '90s. Despite various modernization measures numerous system components are beginning to show their age and no longer satisfy current day requirements. To be able to produce at a high quality level in the long-term, the changeover to a new system generation is unavoidable sooner or later.
The successor system SIMATIC PCS 7 has since established itself in all industries and is in a position to supersede TELEPERM M in every aspect. A comprehensive migration offer that began as long ago as 1999 has eased the gradual transition to the new SIMATIC PCS7 system platform. The complete replacement of the installed base by SIMATIC PCS 7 system components with new software has largely been completed.
The TM aktuell announced that the products SIMATIC PCS 7/TM-OS and SIMATIC PCS 7/TM-EA will no longer be available for order as of September 30, 2017.
However, selected components from this product range as well as technical support will continue to be available under a service agreement. This offer ensures the operation of an existing system until a planned modernization and thus contributes to investment protection.
