SINAMICS Startdrive Commissioning Software

SINAMICS Engineering in the TIA Portal

The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) is the next generation of engineering software for industrial automation. The TIA Portal includes SINAMICS Startdrive to intuitively integrate SINAMICS drives into the automation landscape. The same operating concept, elimination of interfaces and the high user-friendliness make it possible to quickly integrate SINAMICS converters into the automation environment and commission them using the TIA Portal.
