Updating TIA Portal Hardware Catalog: A Comprehensive Guide

Keeping your TIA Portal hardware catalog up-to-date is crucial for seamless integration and optimal performance. This guide walks you through general information on updating the hardware catalog, automatic and manual installation of Hardware Support Packages (HSPs), and handling older modules.

1. General for updating the hardware catalog:

Hardware Support Packages (HSPs) are essential for integrating devices with associated firmware versions into the TIA Portal hardware catalog. Ensure the TIA Portal version corresponds to the HSP version. The file extension for HSPs follows the pattern “*.isp[version number]”.

2. Automatic installation of the HSPs:

  • If connected to the internet, use the “TIA Software Updater” for automatic installation:
    • Navigate to “Start > All Programs > Siemens Automation > Totally Integrated Automation UPDATER.”
    • Select “Support Packages” tab and click “Find Support Packages.”
    • Mark desired packages and click “Download and install selected packages.”

3. Manual installation of the HSPs:

Follow these steps:

  1. Open the download page on Siemens Product Support or use entry ID: 72341852.
  2. Select the appropriate HSP download file for your TIA Portal version.
  3. Download the zip file to a TIA Portal accessible directory.
  4. Unpack the zip file.
  5. Open TIA Portal, select “Options > Support packages.”
  6. Click “Add from file system,” navigate to the directory, and select the *.isp file.
  7. In “Additional information,” mark the HSP file with “No” in the “Installed” column and click “Install.”
  8. Close all TIA Portal windows except the “Support Package Installation” dialog, confirm the message with OK.
  9. Close TIA Portal, click “Continue” after installation, and restart TIA Portal.

4. Older modules in the hardware catalog:

Modules ordered and not discontinued by 1.10.2007 are supported by TIA Portal. They are stored in the hardware catalog of STEP 7 (TIA Portal).


Keeping your TIA Portal hardware catalog current ensures compatibility and access to the latest features. Whether opting for automatic or manual HSP installation, follow these steps for a hassle-free experience. Embrace the efficiency of an updated hardware catalog in TIA Portal, enhancing your automation solutions.
