  • S7-1200 - The modular controllers for innovative system solutions in the manufacturing industry Scalable and Flexible Design - Up to eight Signal Modules can be connected to the largest CPUs. One Signal Board can be connected to all CPUs, allowing you to customize the CPUs by adding digital or analog I/O to the controller without affecting its physical size. The modular concept provided by the SIMATIC S7- 1200 allows you to design a controller system to exactly fit your application needs. Memory - Up to 50 KB of integrated work memory is provided with a floating boundary between the user program and user data. Up to 2 MB of integrated load memory and 2 KB of integrated retentive memory are also provided. Communication - Up to 3 Communication Modules can be added to any of the SIMATIC S7-1200 CPUs. The RS485 and RS232 Communication Modules provide the connection for performing Point-to-Point serial communication. This communication is configured and programmed using extended instructions or with the library functions, USS drive protocol and Modbus RTU Master and Slave protocols, which are included within the STEP 7 Basic engineering system. Integrated PROFINET Interface - The integrated PROFINET interface is used for programming, as well as for HMI and PLC-to-PLC communication. Additionally, it supports communication with third-party devices using open Ethernet protocols. This interface features an RJ45 connector with auto-crossover functionality and provides for data transmission rates at 10/100 Mbit/s. It supports up to 16 Ethernet connections and the following protocols: TCP/IP native, ISO on TCP, and S7-Communication.Integrated Technology Functions - High-speed inputs The new SIMATIC S7-1200 controller comes with up to 6 high-speed counters. Three inputs at 100 kHz and three inputs at 30 kHz are integrated for counting and measuring.

  • S7-1200 Expansion modules Signal modules are the interface of the SIMATIC S7-1200 to the process. A host of different digital and analog modules provide exactly the inputs/outputs required for each task. Digital and analog modules differ as regards the number of channels, voltage and current ranges, isolation, diagnostics and alarm functions, etc. In all the module ranges named here, SIPLUS components are also available for extended temperature range -25 … +60 °C and corrosive atmosphere/condensation.

  • STEP 7 Basic Software for S7-1200 - One software is all you need for basic tasks in various applications SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic is designed to be intuitive, easy to learn and easy to use. This provides you with highest efficiency in engineering. Smart functionalities such as intuitive editors, drag and drop as well as “IntelliSense“-tools simply let you engineer faster. This new software architecture comes from a stable source for future innovations – Siemens has many years of experience in software development and has thus made SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic highly future-oriented. STEP 7 Basic, including WinCC Basic, has task-oriented, intelligent and intuitive editors that enable it to serve as one common engineering framework for programing controllers and configuring HMI Basic Panels. With SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic ease-of-use is guaranteed, whether you are just starting out in engineering or have many years of routine. Engineering is easy to learn and use for starters and fast and efficient for professionals
