Integrated and Efficient
The scalable portfolio of the SIMATIC family ensures an optimal solution for every application. You can benefit from the system consistency – in combination with the integrated engineering in the TIA Portal, you can significantly save costs and shorten your time-to-market.
The SIMATIC family comprises the following components that complement each other perfectly:
The demands on modern machines and plants are steadily growing in all industries. With the automation systems from Siemens, you can cover all requirements while benefiting from maximum efficiency, flexibility, and cost effectiveness.
SIMATIC controllers for cost-effective automation solutions
The right controller every time: for plant building, mechanical engineering, production or process engineering, small autonomous applications, as well as highly complex applications. Siemens offers the optimal control solution for every application area - whether PLC or PC-based.
The range encompasses logic modules including Basic, Advanced and Distributed Controllers, as well as Software Controllers.
Basic Controllers are the intelligent choice for applications in the low to mid-performance range. They are available in standard and fail-safe versions. The integrated inputs and outputs as well as the integrated technology functions facilitate both compact and cost-effective solutions. With Basic Controllers, flexible solutions for simple networking with integrated and optional communication connections can be implemented.
Basic Controllers are configured and programmed in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal). You therefore benefit from maximum engineering efficiency, and as applications increase in complexity, you can easily transfer them to Advanced Controllers.
LOGO! logic module
logic module is the convenient, user-friendly solution for simple open-loop and closed-loop control tasks.
Application LOGO! can be implemented universally, e.g.:
LOGO! logic modules are modular and can be flexibly expanded to suit the application.
SIMATIC S7-1200 is the controller for open-loop and closed-loop control tasks in mechanical and plant engineering.
The SIMATIC S7-1200 combines compact modular design with high performance, making it suitable for a wide variety of automation applications. Its range of use extends from the replacement of relays and contactors up to complex automation tasks in networks and within distributed structures.
The Advanced Controllers are especially suitable for medium and complex applications. The SIMATIC S7-1500 controller is the long-term successor to the SIMATIC S7-300 and SIMATIC S7-400 controllers in discrete automation and the standard for the plants of tomorrow – delivering convincing results with unique performance capability and innovative design and handling. SIMATIC S7 controllers with modular expansion capability are long-term compatible, maintenance-free, scalable and can, of course, be configured in the TIA Portal. They are the ideal solution for any automation task.
SIMATIC S7-300 is the mini PLC system for the lower and medium performance ranges. The modular and fan-free design, simple implementation of distributed structures, and convenient handling make the SIMATIC S7-300 the cost-effective and user-friendly solution for the most diverse tasks in the low-end and mid-performance ranges.
Application areas of the SIMATIC S7-300 include:
The S7-400 is the most powerful PLC in the family of SIMATIC controllers. It enables successful automation solutions with Totally Integrated Automation (TIA). The S7-400 is an automation platform for system solutions that focuses on process engineering and is characterized primarily by its modularity and performance reserves.
