Carry out electrical engineering much more quickly with the Siemens digital tool “Control Panel Design”
To achieve complete, standard-compliant electrical engineering for a control panel, you have to go through many steps. Electrical engineering is versatile and complex, and can therefore take up a great deal of time. Unless you perform the electrical engineering digitally, with Control Panel Design in the TIA Selection Tool.
With this tool, you go through every step of the electrotechnical process digitally, for electrical engineering that is as fast and flexible as possible. From creating the infeed and configuring the load feeders, to configuring the controllers and drawing the panel layout, and to documenting the entire project and also exporting the list of required items. With or without step-by-step guidance from our built-in assistant, if you are new to this field.
Simple and flexible dimensioning
After receiving the requirements for the electrical equipment and control panel, you create the control concept digitally. You then proceed to dimensioning in Control Panel Design within the TIA Selection Tool.
Find the right components and accessories quickly
With just a few clicks, you develop and determine the optimal combination of devices. When doing so, you can easily choose the right components, which you can combine perfectly, from the seamlessly supported Siemens range. You will also find the appropriate accessories quickly: they are displayed automatically according to the devices with which you are working.
Enjoy digital expertise in standards
Everything we just mentioned can be achieved in Control Panel Design according to both IEC and UL standards. Siemens also offers the necessary devices for both types of standards. In other words, you can also use our tool for the electrical engineering of machines for the North American market.

Function extension on PLCnext controllers with a left-side safety module from PhoenixRead moreThe SPLC 1000 was developed as a dedicated safety controller mainly used in a distributed safety system. The new module uses the black channel principle to communicate with other Profisafe devices. This safety controller can be seamlessly integrated into the PLCnext-Technology open ecosystem.
Simplify validation processes virtuallyRead moreValidation processes during the engineering phase are expensive. Individual components must be on site and connected together. In some cases, the components must be delivered specifically for testing or retrieved from storage locations. The simulation software SIRIUS Sim greatly simplifies the process by virtualizing the applications.

Rittal launches new range of smart cooling unitsRead moreRittal is expanding its offering with the Blue e+ S-Series. These new cooling units with lower cooling capacities of 300, 500 and 1,000 watts complement the Blue e+ family and introduce new smart features and innovative energy-saving functions for production processes.
Component shortage strengthens itsme’s connection with RensenRead moreClimate control is in hot demand, as they experience every day at Rensen, specialist in measurement and control technology for building automation. Despite continued price increases, sales and execution are under pressure. The component shortage that emerged last year only increases the challenge of completing projects on time. itsme supports this by monitoring delivery times from the start of a project, finding alternatives if necessary and optimising inventory management. “I’m here almost every week now.”
Coating specialist Alural makes its production more sustainable with SiemensRead moreInstalling a powder coating and anodisation system that is not only more efficient, but also far more sustainable: that was the aim of the FOX or ‘Flash Oxidation’ project at the Lummen-based aluminium coater Alural. Siemens partners Breemes and IE Tech took care of supplying energy to the new installation using a Sivacon S4 power distribution board. Thanks to strong partnerships, the project was practically flawless.
Compressed air: saving and electrifyingRead moreCompressed air is ‘expensive energy’, especially if an installation has a lot of leaks. However, companies often pay little attention to compressed air as an expense and source of CO2 emissions. From a finance and CSR perspective, this means that they’re missing opportunities. Grinding disc manufacturer Saint-Gobain Abrasives took up the gauntlet and had itsme perform an ultrasonic test. This resulted in an overview of leaks and areas of potential savings. The company has already fixed most of the leaks and is now, once again with itsme, looking into electrifying certain drives. That will mean less wear, but moreover reduced costs, since electricity is cheaper than air.
Breemes extracts energy from MarsRead moreMars Food in Olen, Belgium, produces dry rice in an energy-intensive process. Because of the Mars commitment to sustainability combined with the pressure of rising energy prices, energy is a hot item. Breemes contributes to energy savings on different fronts, from frequency inverters for more efficient electric motor operation to lighting studies for an energy-efficient and safe working environment.
