Siemens, a leading automation company, has enhanced its engineering framework with the introduction of the TIA Portal V15.1, a practice-oriented functional expansion of the TIA Portal along the entire value chain.

Siemens releases the TIA Portal V15.1

Key topics in TIA Portal V15.1 include new simulation and virtual commissioning options which enable even better digital design of integrated work processes, as well as the expanded application focus with Simatic S7-1500R/H controllers, Sinamics S210 drive integration, Multiuser Engineering, software units, and OPC UA functions.

Using Simatic S7-PLCSIM Advanced, a digital twin of the Simatic S7-1500 Controller is created in the TIA Portal for simulation and virtual commissioning purposes. The new Simatic Machine Simulator V1.0 then combines this digital twin with the NX Mechatronics Concept Designer, which enables the virtual validation of complete machines: mechatronic and control models, including simple up to complex behavioural models, are synchronised, and machine-level applications can be simulated and then verified.

The commissioning of S7-1500 controllers in TIA Portal V15.1 is also faster and more efficient than before. The TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering has been augmented with a commissioning mode and it is now possible to structure the user programme using software units.

Under realistic conditions, comparisons between the digital twin and real systems makes it possible to find engineering errors before avtual commissioning, and modifications can be considered in upstream or downstream stages of development.
