Siemens offers the right controller for a wide range of automation requirements. The SIMATIC range of controllers comprises Basic, Advanced, Distributed and Software Controllers that offer impressive scalability and integration of their functions. Every controller offers integrated system functions such as efficient engineering, high performance, innovative design, reliable diagnostics, Safety Integrated, Technology Integrated, and Security Integrated. This allows great flexibility in the design or adaption of automation solutions, without having to constantly accumulate more knowledge and expertise.
The Steiner Automation Team application engineers can help you select the right controllers to meet your requirements and provide guidance on how to improve operational efficiencies through integration.
Every machine or plant is different in terms of system performance needs and complexity. The SIMATIC S7-1200 Basic Controller for small to medium-sized applications, the SIMATIC S7-1500 Advanced Controller for medium-sized and complex applications, the SIMATIC ET 200 Distributed Controller for distributed applications, and the SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller for PC-based applications.
The intelligent choice for automation solutions in the low and middle performance range. Basic controllers are the intelligent choice for compact automation solutions with integrated communication and technology functions. They are available in standard and failsafe versions.View S7-1200 Basic Controllers
Advanced Controllers automate not just complete production plants but also applications that demand the greatest performance, flexibility, and networking capability. SIMATIC S7-1500 is the latest controller generation and therefore the most future-proof controller with optimal system performance.View S7-1500 Advanced Controllers
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. With SIMATIC ET 200pro, a CPU module with S7-1500 technology is available as a modular space-saving solution for tough environmental conditions near the machine.View ET-200 Distributed Controllers
The Software Controllers are used wherever maximum precision and speed are required as well as PC-based automation. With SIMATIC S7-1500 software controller you have access to the full performance of a SIMATIC S7-1500 controller on industrial PCs. This means you benefit from the security of a PLC controller and from the flexibility and independence of an industrial PC. The software controller works completely independent of the operating system, which means it also continues to run during restart or even when the operating system fails.
