The latest generation of Siemens ready-to-use, high performance progamming devices have been optimised for engineering with the TIA Portal. The devices are designed for mobile use in machines and plants for configuration, commissioning, service, and maintenance.

The Simatic Field PG M6 programming device is equipped with a high-performance Intel Core i5 processor. The advanced version can be optionally configured with Simatic S5 interfaces and features the more powerful Intel Core i7 processor. All interfaces that are required for the efficient connection of industrial automation applications are installed, including RS 232, Profibus, Profinet, and Simatic Card, as well as the latest WLAN 802.11ac wireless and BT V5.0 Bluetooth technology. The device is light, rugged, and completely shielded for use in machines and plants in harsh industrial environments.

The device is also delivered preinstalled with Windows 10 Enterprise and the current version of the TIA Portal engineering software for controllers, safety, and HMI. Additionally, STEP 7 Professsional 2017, Win CC flexible 2008, and, in the advanced version with Simatic S5 interfaces, STEP 5 are preinstalled for older projects.
