Simatic Migration Services make machines and systems future proof

15.10.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Simple migration to pioneering Simatic technologies and the TIA Portal
  • Extended machine lifespan and increased reliability
  • Lower migration costs and minimum downtime during the implementation
  • Partial and complete migration are both possible

Simatic Migration Services enable companies to migrate to the latest Simatic technologies. This makes their legacy automation systems future-proof, increases plant availability and extends machine lifespan. The services are designed for manufacturing customers in all discrete automation industries. With Simatic migrations services, customers can retain Siemens experts to perform the entire migration.

The quick and simple changeover can be achieved through standardized migration offerings, which range from consulting and conception, through the implementation, testing and commissioning to the handover of the new system, including technical training for the personnel. Precise planning minimizes both the risks of migration and the scheduled downtime for the implementation.

The services can be tailored flexibly to match a company's requirements. Both partial and complete migration of systems and machines are possible. Within the scope of the service, Siemens experts support users, in particular with the migration of application software from Step 7, Protool or WinCC Flexible projects to TIA Portal projects.

If required, frequency converters and Motion Control systems can also be modernized. Companies that take advantage of Simatic Migration Services benefit from a smooth migration, long-term spare part availability, integrated diagnostic functions that speed up fault correction, and reduced downtimes.

Modern Simatic technology and network infrastructures also enable efficient interoperability of all components and greatest transparency across all levels: relevant information is available anywhere in the plant at any time. This increases the availability of machines and systems, as well as making them future-proof.

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...

Im Focus: Optoelectronic Inline Measurement – Accurate to the Nanometer

Germany counts high-precision manufacturing processes among its advantages as a location. It’s not just the aerospace and automotive industries that require almost waste-free, high-precision manufacturing to provide an efficient way of testing the shape and orientation tolerances of products. Since current inline measurement technology not yet provides the required accuracy, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is collaborating with four renowned industry partners in the INSPIRE project to develop inline sensors with a new accuracy class. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project is scheduled to run until the end of 2019.
