The new modular SIMATIC S7-1200 PLC is at the core of our new offering for simple but highly precise automation tasks. The SIMATIC S7-1200 PLC is modular and compact, versatile, a secure investment, and is powerfully fit for a full range of applications.
The SIMATIC S7-1200 features an integrated PROFINET interface, powerful integrated technology functions and a highly scalable and flexible design. This enables simple communication, efficient solutions for technological tasks, and perfectly fits individual automation requirements in a wide variety of applications. SIMATIC S7-1200 is programmed via the new and fully integrated engineering-system SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic with SIMATIC Wincc.
CPU 1212 DC/DC/DC and CPU 1214 DC/DC/Relay
It has 8 DI/6 DO and 14 DI/10 DO With one interface 2 analog inputs. The integrated PROFINET interface is used for programming and for HMI as well as PLC-to-PLC communication. It supports communication with third-party devices using open Ethernet protocols. The interface features an RJ45 connector with auto-cross-over functionality and provides for data transmission rates at 10/100 M bit/s. It supports up to 16 Ethernet connections and the following protocols: TCP/IP native, ISO on TCP, and S7 communication.
CPU 1215 and CPU 1217
It has 14 DI/10 DO With Two interface 2 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs. The SIMATIC CPU 1215C and CPU 1217C features six high-speed counters (HSC) build in - three with a clock rate of 100 kHz. Integrated PROFINET interface of CPU 1215C and CPU 1217C Both have 2 PN ports that can be used either as HMI connection and switchless I/O or as one programming and one field device port.
Digital and Analog Expansion Modules:
Signal modules can be connected to the right side of the CPU to further expand the digital I/O & analog I/O capacity. CPU 1212C accepts up to two modules, CPU 1214C, CPU 1215C and CPU 1217C both accept up to eight signal modules.
Up to 3 communication modules can be added to any of the SIMATIC S7-1200 CPUs. The RS 485 and RS232 communication modules are fit for serial, character-based point-to-point connections. The library functions USS drive protocol and Modbus RTU Master and Slave protocols are already included within the SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic engineering system.
