Features of SIMATIC S7-1200
SIMATIC S7-1200 is a basic controller covering more applications!
System Flexibility and Modularity:
Modular board concept provides the ability to add additional I/Os without increasing the CPU’s footprint. So if your application calls for a single RTD input just add the correct signal board and this reduces space and cost. Integrated PROFINET/Ethernet interface eliminates the need for additional proprietary programming cables and no Ethernet expansion module; which reduces space and cost.
Powerful Integrated Functionality:
Extensive built-in technology like motion control I/O, PID controllers, High Speed Counting I/O, and Analog I/O eliminates the need for additional specialty modules reducing space and cost. Simple configuration tools are used for both Motion and PID control functions; which saves engineers considerable development time. Rapid realization of your application is achieved with integrated control panels that dramatically reduce start-up and commissioning time.
Intelligent drag and drop between editors allows engineers to be much quicker during development. This intuitive functionality saves considerable time and overall engineering costs. Single engineering framework for Logic, HMI and Networking with common navigation, icons, and menus are consistent throughout all views. This makes it easy to learn and even easier to maintain saving you time.
