SIMATIC Controllers – The intelligent choice for your automation tasks
Siemens offers the right controller for a wide range of automation requirements.
The SIMATIC range of controllers comprises of Basic, Advanced, Distributed and Software Controllers offering impressive scalability and integration of their functions. The engineering
in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) enables optimum automation solutions to be found for every application
Basic Controllers are the intelligent choice for compact automation solutions with integrated communication and technology functions. They are available in both standard and safety versions.
Distributed Controllers are used for machines with a distributed architecture and for series machines with limited space available. They combine the advantages of a SIMATIC S7-1500 with the design of a SIMATIC ET 200SP.
Advanced Controllers automate not only complete pro- duction plants, but also applications which demand the greatest performance, flexibility and networking capability. Sophisticated motion control tasks are implemented with the technology CPU.
The Software Controllers are used wherever maximum precision and speed are required as well as PC-based automation. The PC-based controllers operate independently of the operating system. Like all SIMATIC controllers, the Software Controller is also available with Safety Integrated.
