Field PG M6 in Backpack


Highlights of the SIMATIC Field PG M6:

The mobile, industrial Field PG M6 programming device is the optimal tool for automation engineering and an ideal platform for the SIMATIC engineering software:

  • Powerful 8th generation Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processor (Coffee Lake)
  • Fast work memory (up to 32 GB DDR4 RAM)
  • Large data memory (up to 2 TB SSD)
  • 2x USB 3.1 Gen. 2 (of which 1x USB Type C 1x USB Type A)
  • 2x USB 3.0 Type A (one of which with charging function for smartphones max. 1.5 A)
  • Robust enclosure made of sturdy magnesium alloy 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 M6 is equipped with a 15.6" full HD display (1.920 x 1.080) and supports Bluetooth V5.0 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 PROFIBUS DP/MPI
  • 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: 4.096 x 2.560 @ 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 SIMATIC Field PG M6 via USB:

  • 3x USB Type A
  • 1x USB Type C

Just like its predecessors, the SIMATIC Field PG M6 once again comes equipped with a DVD-RW drive .

This means the SIMATIC Field PG M6 is ideally suited for engineering in the office as well as for commissioning, service or maintenance of automation systems.

The Microsoft BitlLocker 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.
With the help of the integrated Smartcard Reader, you can easily send and receive encrypted emails with the SIMATIC Field PG M6 - there is no need for an external Smartcard Reader.
The integrated Intel® Active Management Technology (iAMT) enables remote access of the company IT to the Field PG via 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.
