Here you can deploy the SIMATIC Automation Tool as a Trial Download.

After a control program is created and verified with the Siemens TIA Portal software, the SIMATIC Automation Tool can be used in the field for operating and maintaining SIMATIC S7-1200, S7-1500, ET 200, HMI, SITOP, SCALANCE switches, RFID and MOBY Ident modules.

Automation Tool operations:

  • Scan a PROFINET/Ethernet network and identify all devices connected to the network
  • Flash device LEDs or HMI screens to physically locate a device
  • Create a table that maps the accessible devices on the network
  • Assign addresses (IP, subnet, gateway) and station name (PROFINET device)
  • Set the time in a CPU to the current time in your PG/PC
  • Download a program to a CPU and HMI panels
  • Put a CPU in RUN or STOP mode
  • Perform a CPU Memory reset

  • Backup/Restore CPU or HMI data to/from a backup file
  • Upload service data from a CPU
  • Upload of service data from ET200 devices
  • Read the diagnostics buffer from a CPU
  • Reset a CPU to factory default settings
  • Update firmware in a CPU and attached modules
  • Ability to load firmware update files on devices and activate the new firmware later
  • Support for CPUs connected through a CM (Communications Module) or CP (Communications Processor)
  • Upload, download, or delete Recipe data (stored at SMC) from a CPU
  • Upload or delete Data log data (stored at SMC) from a CPU
  • Information in Device table for CPUs: TIA Portal version and configured CPU version
  • Document and save your network information
    • In a standard text .csv file or
    • An encrypted & password protected .sat file
  • Use the API to create custom .NET applications based on the functionality available in the SIMATIC Automation Tool
  • Advanced features:
    • Up to 10 concurrent connections.
    • Scheduler for scheduling device operations on a time and frequency of your choosing
    • Card browser for working with files and folders on SIMATIC memory cards in your CPUs
    • Archiving capabilities for SAT projects and associated file data
