Find out how the TIA engineering framework from Siemens is essential for automation technology!
Introducing the TIA engineering framework
What industries can utilize the TIA Portal?
How does the TIA Portal compare to other platforms?
We at Automation24 recognize the value that digital solutions bring to the automation industry. As a result, we are excited to provide truly groundbreaking solutions from Siemens that can only be described as Totally Integrated Automation. Finally, manage your entire network of automation devices on one centralized platform. Whether it be device commissioning, program design, network structure, machine diagnostics, energy conservation, or productivity analysis, the TIA Portal gives you the ability to efficiently automate and streamline your operations.
Additionally, you can easily collaborate with your organization through Multi-user Engineering. Share projects and data with your entire team and customize access to allow only appropriate personnel access to critical functions. The decreased commissioning time experienced by having all devices and team members working together on one platform is invaluable.

Monitor, analyze, and optimize with TIA
The TIA Portal not only simplifies your current automation processes, but it opens up a whole new world of opportunities:
With the TIA Portal you can easily access and control devices, as well as obtain critical diagnostic and performance data from your operation no matter where you are. The portal allows you to create a customizable interface for you and your organization to manage your operations in the way that benefits you the most. Instead of conforming to your automation platform, make your automation platform conform to YOUR operation! Never before have users had such comprehensive control of their operations at their fingertips from anywhere in the world, day or night.
By utilizing the tools integrated into the TIA Portal, users can design and implement an interface that is completely tailored to you or your customer’s needs. Access and control devices across your entire automation platform directly from your computer or mobile device.
The following devices can communicate seamlessly via the TIA Portal:
Additionally, the TIA Portal User Management Component allows you to provide a higher level of security by granting varied levels of access to authorized personnel, eliminating the risk of dangerous equipment tampering. No matter what your needs, the TIA Portal has you covered.
Machine builders know that communication is a pillar of automation. Device communication is integral to the success of any machine or automation system, but can also be one of the most difficult aspects of commissioning. Many components use different communication protocols, and communications need to be translated between devices either with further hardware, software, coding, function blocks, or all of the above. The TIA Portal helps alleviate this burden by providing a space where all components on the TIA platform can be integrated and communicate with one another via PROFINET and Ethernet based communications. In addition to the cost savings provided by decreased commissioning time, this seamless communication allows the user to manage all of their data from one repository, eliminating the need to extract data from multiple sources.
The TIA Portal isn’t just helping devices efficiently communicate, it’s helping find better ways to share ideas and implement solutions thanks to the OPC UA (Open protocol communication – Unified architecture). With integrated security mechanisms and encryption combined with industrial Ethernet based communication, OPC UA merges the necessary cyber security you need to safely operate. The benefits of vertical communication and open device communication simplify your infrastructure. Whether it be integrated diagnostics reporting, productivity data, or machine conditioning, OPC UA communication allows you to securely access all of your data when and where you need it.
