Building innovative machines with SIMATIC controllers
You’ve got a project ahead and need a good basis for the automation solution.
If your new project involves a programmable logic controller, then the SIMATIC controllers from Siemens are just what you are looking for. Siemens offers compact controller solutions with integrated functions, powerful controllers for the highest demands, controllers for distributed tasks or PC-based automation: plenty of options to choose from.

SIMATIC controller – Common strengths in detail
The seamless integration of SIMATIC controllers into the common TIA Portal engineering framework allows 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 integration of know-how protection, protection against copying and manipulation, and additional password protection for access to program contents.
