You start with the project… but from where do you get the solution?If your new project is to make use of a programmable logic controller, then the SIMATIC controllers from Siemens are just what you are looking for. We are offering compact controller solutions with integrated functions, powerful controllers for highest demands, controllers for distributed tasks or PC-based automation: Many options to choose from. But which type of controller is the best match for my automation project? The controller configurator provides an answer to your question. In five small steps.
SIMATIC controller –Common strengths in detail
The seamless integration of SIMATIC controllers into the common TIA Portal engineering framework permits the integrated storage of data, the smart library concept and a uniform operating philosophy. This makes the use of universal functions particularly easy.
Each controller can be set up and wired differently. The SIMATIC controller portfolio offers modular, compact and PC-based CPUs.
Variety of diagnostic options
The integrated system diagnostics with efficient fault analysis and fast troubleshooting cuts commissioning times and minimizes downtimes in production. Faults are uniformly indicated in the engineering on the HMI, in the web server and in the display of the SIMATIC S7-1500.
Fail-safe SIMATIC controllers offer the greatest possible level of integration: one controller, one communication system and one engineering for both standard and fail-safe automation.
Technology functions for metering and measuring tasks, closed-loop control and motion control are integrated into all SIMATIC controllers. Technology CPUs are used for particularly demanding motion control tasks.
Intellectual property and the investment it represents are safeguarded by the integrationof know-how protection, protection against copying and manipulation, and additional password protection for access to program contents.
