Distributed Controllers

Distributed Controllers | ET-200SP

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. With the release of Siemens TIA Portal V18 software and firmware version 3.0, new hardware for CPUs up to S7-1514-SP is introduced. This hardware upgrade, which includes a transition from single-core to dual-core processors, significantly enhances the performance, memory, and communication capabilities of these CPUs.

Software Controllers

Software 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.
