NX MCD and TIA Portal compatibility matrix

Siemens Creator Siemens Creator

Hello,

I'm looking for a matrix or maybe some other form of document that has the information which version of NX (NX Mechatronic Concept Design) can be connected with which version of TIA Portal.

Great thank you for any help.

Hello 8pxgn1,

 

usually NX/MCD is not connected to the TIA Portal directly but rather to the PLC (that can be a Siemens S7 PLC for example that is programmed by TIA Portal).

 

MCD has a variety of open interfaces that can be used to connect to PLCs or other devices directly or indirectly via a co-simulation  with other tools (Simcenter Amesim / Simit) for further and more detailed component simulation.

 

I can sum up a couple of the Interfaces used and implemented in the according NX versions:

 

NX9:

.NET User Behavior (can be used to program own interfaces to nearly any device/software)

+ OPC DA Client

 

 

NX10:

.NET User Behavior (can be used to program own interfaces to nearly any device/software)

OPC DA Client

+ Shared Memory (can be used to connect to simit for example, that connects to various PLCs etc.)

 

NX11:

.NET User Behavior (can be used to program own interfaces to nearly any device/software)

OPC DA Client

Shared Memory (can be used to connect to simit for example, that connects to various PLCs etc.)

+ Matlab Simulink

 

NX12.0.0:

.NET User Behavior (can be used to program own interfaces to nearly any device/software)

OPC DA Client

Shared Memory (can be used to connect to simit for example, that connects to various PLCs etc.)

Matlab Simulink

+ PLCSim Advanced  (Direct connection to simulated Siemens-S7-15xx PLCs)

+ TCP / UDP Server

+ TCP / UDP Client

+ ProfiNet

+ SHM Provider (Server)

 

Planned for NX12.0.2:

.NET User Behavior (can be used to program own interfaces to nearly any device/software)

OPC DA Client

Shared Memory (can be used to connect to simit for example, that connects to various PLCs etc.)

Matlab Simulink

PLCSim Advanced (Direct connection to simulated Siemens-S7-15xx PLCs)

TCP / UDP Server

TCP / UDP Client

ProfiNet

SHM Provider (Server)

+ OPC UA Client

 

Best Regards

Viktor

Hi Victor,

thank you very much for such a comprehensive answer. This is something that help me to understand collaboration between these two systems.
