Totally Integrated Automation
Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) represents a complete spectrum of automation components that feature the highest possible level of integration of both hardware and software, including:
- A uniform software environment that supports most phases of the project, including hardware selection, programming and operation and diagnostic services. All components and systems are configured, programmed, tested and monitored with a single, fully integrated software platform.
- A common database that significantly reduces data entry tasks and ensures consistency throughout the project. All data, entered only once, becomes readily available factory-wide.
- A common communications architecture, easily configured and readily scalable, ranging from the sensor/actuator level to factory-wide networks.
