If you have high demands on performance, communication, flexibility, and technology functions, the Siemens SIMATIC S7-1500 Advanced Controllers now available from APS Industrial delivers exceptional results thanks to it’s ultimate power that provides maximum performance for medium-sized to high-end machines.
The SIMATIC S7-1500 features a modular design and can be scaled in terms of its functionality and different central processing units (CPU types) are available for multiple performance classes. The range also offers a wide range of signal modules for input and output as well as technology modules for special technological functions, such as counting, and centralized and decentralized communication modules are available to serve as interfaces to the machine or plant. The SIMATIC S7-1500 is approved for protection class IP20 and designed for installation in a control cabinet.
Central processing units
The central processing units (CPU) are the heart of the SIMATIC S7-1500. They execute the user program and network the controller with other automation components.
The signal modules or I/O modules form the interface between the controller and the process. They can be used in centralised as well as in decentralised configurations.
Technology modules (TM) offer hardware-level signal pre-processing for rapid counting, measurement and position registration for a variety of encoders.
Communication modules increase the communication capabilities of the SIMATIC S7-1500 through additional functions or interfaces.
Everything for an easy start: use the SIMATIC S7-1500 Starter Kit with the compact CPU or the Technology CPU. Fast control – fast start!
