Siemens S7 1200 PLC configuration in TIA Portal

This is PLC Program for S7-1200 PLC configuration in TIA portal.

Siemens S7 1200 PLC

Implement PLC program for S7-1200 PLC configuration in TIA portal.

Problem Diagram


Problem Solution

  • In this system we will consider S7-200 PLC and TIA portal software for configuration.
  • For S7-1200 PLC we need TIA portal software for configuration of hardware.
  • The SIMATIC S7-1200 system comes in four different models, with CPU 1211C, CPU 1212C, CPU 1214C and CPU 1215C, that may each be expanded to exactly fit the application requirements.
  • Here we consider CPU 1214 AC/DC/RLY for hardware configuration.

  • All data which is generated during the creation of an automation solution is saved in the project file.
  • The data is stored in the form of objects. Within the project, the objects are arranged in a tree structure.
  • The project hierarchy is based on the devices and stations along with the configuration data and programs belonging to them.

Following step, you will create a new project .

Step 1 :-  Click “Create new project”.

Step 2 :-  Enter a name for your project.

Step 3 :-  Click “Create” to create the new project.
