Toolbox for HMI Projects

  • Contribution
  • Concerne le/les produits(s)
It is often the small tools that make work easier. This entry contains some useful tools that you can easily integrate into your HMI configuration via libraries. For example, a stopwatch, a file explorer or also a calculator, .... The toolbox for HMI projects currently offers 29 tools already and is continuously expanded.

The HMI toolbox of Siemens Industry Online Support provides many useful tools that can clearly make every day work easier.
The different tools are available in global libraries and can thus be easily integrated in your visualization. This saves you valuable development time that you would have to invest in the development of separate tools.

The HMI toolbox comprises tools for six different subject areas.

All tools in one example
In the example project you can test the functions of all tools. In order to use them in your own project, use the respective libraries and documentation.

Time functions                           

Time functions are an elementary part of production. Instead of external “tools” such as, for example, a wall calendar, you can integrate the calendar directly into your visualization and make work much easier for the operator.

Data transfer                         

Exchanging data between devices or persons is one of the basic requirements of automation technology. How can the operators of a large, distributed plant communicate with each other quickly and efficiently? How can you transfer the article number of a defective device to your cell phone so that you can retrieve the information when back at your desk?
Please use the following tools.

Mathematical functions                         

Small calculations are a fixed part of the daily work routine of an operator. If products are manufactured for different regions, converting the units can be a lot of work. Small tools can help the operator and prevent minor errors.

Simplified operation                         

The user interface of the panels in the plant should be intuitive and with an easy to use design. It can support operators with functions they know from everyday life such as a home button that executes different functions depending on whether it is pressed for short or long time.

Increase clarity                          

To enable your operators to work in a structured way, the clarity of the user interface has to be paramount. TIA Portal provides several options, for example, to align elements with each other. The tools included here, such as, a notes function, round off these options.

1 new tool for WinCC RT Professional


Simplified Engineering                          

Not only plant operators but also their engineers can be supported by little tools. With the aid of the rotation tool (MS Office AddIn), you can create a rotating object from any graphic and use it as a graphic list in your WinCC (TIA Portal) project.

As of TIA Portal V14 (WinCC Basic/Comfort/Advanced/Professional) you can use the "Siemens TIA Portal Icons Standard" font. The font provides frequently used graphic icons as typeset. This saves you development time for individual icons.
You can find an overview about the symbols and a describition about the implementation of the font in the documentation.

Notes relatives à la sécurité
La protection des installations, systèmes, machines et réseaux contre les cyber-menaces nécessite la réalisation (et le maintien continu) d'un concept global de sécurité IT à la pointe de la technique. Les produits et solutions Siemens ne constituent qu'un élément d'un tel concept. Pour plus d’informations sur la cyber-sécurité, rendez-vous sur
