Clearly arranged and up-to-date at all times
Siemens had already optimized module access in the TIA portal so the data is stored in a way that is most efficient for the PLC. Via the TIA Portal connector i4SCADA can now read the data directly online. The i4SCADA visualization shows the correct variable names and values from the PLC. This makes the process visualization clearer for users. In addition, i4SCADA always accesses current project data, since the software reads the data directly from the PLC instead of the TIA portal.
By using the same symbols as in the TIA Portal, a direct connection between the programming in the PLC and the representation in i4SCADA can be established.
