SIMATIC system properties

SIMATIC provides the basis for unrestricted consistency in communications, and thus for maximum transparency across all levels – at the field and control level, the operations level, and at the ERP level. Here SIMATIC relies on PROFIBUS, the world’s No. 1 field bus, and PROFINET, the open industrial Ethernet standard –international manufacturer-independent standards that can be flexibly combined.
As a result, all relevant information is available plant-wide at all times. That greatly simplifies commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance – and these tasks can also be performed using wireless technology or the Internet. In addition, the components can be accessed from anywhere to intervene in the process as needed.
