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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Topological material switched off and on for the first time

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
