Hi all,

I want to use SIMATIC TP1200 and have checked on Siemens website saying that the configuration software is "WinCC Comfort (TIA Portal) or hgher".

Kindly want to know:

1. Can i used WinCC Flexible on TP1200?
2. If I know how to use WinCC Flexible, do I have difficulties of using WinCC Comfort?
3. What is the pros and cons of using WinCC Comfort instead of WinCC flexible?

thanks guys~ :)

Hello,

about your questions:

1.) Comfort panels can just be projected with WinCC Comfort (TIA Portal). They are not aviable in WinCC flexible.

2.) The "working" with the TIA Portal is comparably to WinCC flexible. The layout is similar to WinCC flexible and it is easy to work with TIA if you knew WinCC flexible. Maybe you first order a demo version and try WinCC TIA Portal:

  •     Trial DVD TIA-Portal STEP 7 Professional & WinCC Advanced
        Order number: 6ZB5310-0PY02-2FA1
  •     Trial DVD TIA-Portal STEP 7 Professional & WinCC Professional
        Order number: 6ZB5310-0QA02-2FA1
3.) In my mind the pro are that you don`t need so many different installations at the pc. You just need one installation (WinCC TIA Portal, Step7 TIA Portal) and in this case you have just to maintain one software in case of many single software version. Sure there are also some cons, but it i work gladly with WinCC TIA Portal.

best regards
