Lap Top VS Simatic Field PG

Post by Alex3110 » Tue Dec 03, 2019 4:08 pm

Hello everybody !

Anybody calculated variants by the price (with the same parameters CPU, HDD / SSD, RAM) :

1. Laptop + USB-MPI \ DP adapter + licensed software (STEP7 & WinCC + PLCSIM + WinCC RT keys) Pro v.15.1 "


2. Simatic Field PG M6 Advanced with pre-installed the similar software v.15.1

What is the difference in price for the indicated HW and SW, or for the earlier one, if you calculated before ?

Simatic Field PG M6 - the price, for example, is about 7000 Euros (not in Germany).

If you chose option 1, then had U a lot of troubles to make a Lap Top like Simatic Field PG ?

Both is OK, PG is too heavy, if you travels a lot......

It is also good idea that use a Virtual machine like VMWare in high performance laptop.
