Automation controller for distributed and PC-based applications

05 February 2018

Siemens has extended its Simatic automation controller series for PC-based applications to include the Simatic ET 200SP Open Controller CPU 1515SP PC 2 – for standard and fail-safe applications up to Performance Level e.

The new Open Controller, which is said to be suitable for series machine building, combines the functions of a PC-based software controller with visualisation, Windows applications and central I/Os (inputs/outputs) in a single compact device.

The new, fail-safe CPU1516pro-2 PN for the Simatic ET 200pro Distributed Controller also performs standard and fail-safe automation tasks up to Performance Level e in a single device.

Safety functionalities have been integrated into the Simatic S7-1500 Software Controllers for the first time which makes the CPU 1507S F a software controller with fail-safe PC-based control which is operated independently of the operating system. This provides high system availability and facilitates the controller's rapid start-up. Further, installation of Windows updates and rebooting is now possible while the controller is running which eliminates the need for the hardware controller.
