By means of the “device proxy PLC”, you can directly access the SIMATIC controllers configured in the SIMATIC Manager and their current data such as symbols, data blocks and the alarm procedures “Alarm_S”, “Alarm_D” and “SFM”. Further on, GSDML files are available for download for the “Direct button” function.
This extensive application example uses a transport solution with rotary table to illustrate various functions and options of SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller.
With TIA Portal Openness you can automatize and remote control your engineering tasks in the TIA Portal with independent scripts.
The TIA Portal OpennessScripter allows you to automate your tasks in TIA Portal projects without programming skills.
With the SIMATIC Energy Suite you can quickly and directly detect the energy data from the supporting energy-measuring components. This application example shows you all required configuration steps to correctly acquire and archive energy data with SIMATIC Energy Suite. You will furthermore be given information and examples for visualizing and exporting data.
The Compatibility Tool is a function provided by the Industry Online Support with which you can select compatible software products or check the compatibility of existing configurations.
The diagnostics of devices, modules and networks play an ever-increasing role in automation technology. By diagnosing with a user program, faulty modules can be detected. This enables you to also program responses to diagnostic messages.
The Modbus instructions "MB_SERVER" V4.2 and higher and "Modbus_Slave" V3.0 and higher enable you to parameterize the valid address area of the outputs to prevent unauthorized access to the process image outputs of the Modbus master (via function code 5 or 15).
The information and links below give you an overview of the general requirements for installing STEP 7 (TIA Portal).
To establish Modbus/TCP communication between two S7-1500 CPUs you call the "MB_CLIENT" and "MB_SERVER" instructions in the user program of the S7-1500 CPUs.
Modbus/TCP communication between S7-1500 CPUs and S7-1200 CPUs is presented. The instructions "MB_CLIENT" and "MB_SERVER" are called and parameterized in the user program of the S7-1500 CPU and the S7-1200 CPU.
The TIA Portal Cloud Connector enables central management of your engineering software on a server. From an engineering workstation, you can work with TIA Portal (which is installed on a server) via a remote desktop connection. For this, the TIA Portal Cloud Connector serves as communication tunnel.
This application example describes the deterministic data exchange of a S7-1200 controller with several SENTRON PAC3200 power monitoring device via Modbus/TCP. The communication with the individual measuring devices takes place successively via a connection.

You open the libraries in the TIA Portal via the toolbar in the "Libraries" task card.
You update the hardware catalog of the TIA Portal by installing the Hardware Support Packages (HSPs).
This application example shows, how you configure communication via a gateway between SIMATIC S7 CPU and a KNX device via the KNX bus.
Sustainable increase in efficiency as well as an improved cost situation at rising energy prices is a great challenge for plant operators. Transparent representation of the energy trends of a plant requires a plant-specific measuring concept.
This application example shows how to couple the leading axis and the following axis via setpoint positions in standstill with camming using the instruction "MC_CamIn".
