SIMATIC Automation Tool – Is a Siemens PLC configuration tool without TIA Portal software
When implementing an automation project, customers do not always have a computer installed with TIA Portal for us to interfere with the remote PLC. As we know, the most basic TIA Portal is also quite heavy (around 5GB) and requires a powerful machine configuration. So not all computers can install this software.
This software is very light (about 300MB), this is a tool to help us communicate with the PLC and perform some basic operations. Especially on the client side, they do not need to install TIA Portal software to handle the situation.
