Field PG M5

Highlights of the SIMATIC Field PG M5:

The mobile, industrial Field PG M5 programming device is the optimal tool for automation engineering and an ideal platform for the SIMATIC engineering software:

  • Powerful sixth generation Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processor (Skylake)

  • Fast work memory (up to 32 GB DDR4 RAM)

  • High capacity data storage (up to 1 TB HDD/SSD)

  • 4x USB 3.0 Super Speed ports (of which 1x USB Type C)

  • Robust enclosure made of stable magnesium with rubber-protected corners and retractable handle

  • All conventional interfaces for industrial applications onboard = no adapters required!

  • Pre-installed SIMATIC Engineering software = turnkey!

The Field PG M5 is equipped with a 15.6" full HD display (1920 x 1080) and supports Bluetooth V4.0 as well as the latest WLAN standard 802.11ac.

Thanks to the integrated industrial and SIMATIC interfaces, no additional adapters are required for automation tasks:

  • 2x Gigabit Ethernet (RJ45) for PROFINET connections
  • 1x COM/RS232 (25-pin socket - can be adapted to 9-pin socket with adapter)

External monitors can be easily connected for convenient engineering work at the office:

  • 1x Display Port (max. resolution: 4096 x 2304 @ 60Hz)
  • 1x DVI-I (max. resolution: 1920 x 1200); VGA connection also possible with provided adapter

Up to 4 external USB devices can be connected to the Field PG M5 via USB 3.0 Super Speed:

  • 3x USB Type A
  • 1x USB Type C

Just like its predecessors, the Field PG M5 is equipped with a DVD-RW drive.

This means that the Field PG M5 is optimally suited for engineering work at the office and for commissioning, service or maintenance of automation systems in the field.

The Microsoft BitLocker functionality is supported by the integrated Trusted Platform Module TPM 2.0 and thus offers access and operating system protection as well as secure data encryption.

Using the built-in smart card reader, for example, encrypted e-mails can be easily sent and received with the Field PG M5 - an external smart card reader is not needed.

The integrated Intel® Active Management Technology (iAMT) enables the company IT department remote access to the Field PG over standard Ethernet. This enables the remote control of the Field PG in order to, for example, restore or upgrade Field PGs or for diagnostics and troubleshooting.
