Thanks to Totally Integrated Automation, Siemens provides an integrated basis for the implementation of customized automation solutions – in all industries from inbound to outbound. TIA is characterized by its unique continuity.It provides maximum transparency at all levels with reduced interfacing requirements – covering the field level, production control level, up to the corporate management level. With TIA you also profit throughout the complete life cycle of your plant – starting with the initial planning steps through operation up to modernization, where we offer a high measure of investment security re-sulting from continuity in the further development of our products and from reducing the number of interfaces to a minimum.The unique continuity is already a defined characteristic at the development stage of our products and systems. The result: maximum interoperability – covering the controller, HMI, drives, up to the process control system. This reduces the complexity of the automation solution in your plant. You will experience this, for example, in the engineering phase of the automation solution in the form of reduced time requirements and cost, or during operation using the continuous diagnostics facili-ties of Totally Integrated Automation for increas-ing the availability of your plan
The power supply system acts like a “vital artery”, forming the basis for the reliable and efficient functioning of all electrically operated building installations. Electrical power distribu-tion therefore requires integrated solutions. Our answer: Totally Integrated Power (TIP).This includes software tools and support for planning and configuration and a complete, optimally aligned product and system portfolio for integrated power distribution from medium-voltage switchgear right to socket outlets. The power distribution products and systems can be interfaced to building or industrial automation systems (Total Building Solutions or Totally Integrated Automation) via communication-capable circuit breakers and components, allowing the full po-tential for optimization that an inte-grated solution offers to be exploited throughout the project cycle – from planning right through to installation and operation
