Siemens new Simatic ET 200SP failsafe controllers offer the same high performance features as the Simatic 1510SP F and 1512SP F failsafe controllers, but in a compact form factor.
Three integrated Ethernet ports make the new controller ideal for standalone applications. The controllers can be expanded with a maximum of 64 ET200SP I/O modules. The modular and compact controllers also handle standard and failsafe distributed applications requiring fast, downstream local discrete control for up to 128 IO devices. The ET 200SP controllers easily integrate with and offer the same functions as the Simatic S7-1200 and S71500 controllers, including password protection against unauthorized reading out and modification of program blocks.
Additionally, system diagnostic information is displayed uniformly and in plain text in the TIA Portal, HMI and web server. Drives are connected via PROFINET, PROFIBUS or analog interfaces. Motion control programs are easily implemented with PLCopen motion blocks.
