SIMATIC ET 200MP - Interface Modules

Header module of the I/O-station and connection to PLC

The interface module (IM) connects SIMATIC ET 200MP to PROFINET or PROFIBUS and exchanges data between the higher-level controller and the I/O modules.

ET 200MP is especially suitable for use in plants with large and very large configuration limits. The connection to PROFINET and PROFIBUS allows ET 200MP to be installed either centrally in the control cabinet or distributed in plants covering large areas.
As many as 30 modules may be operated behind the PROFINET modules (max. 12 with PROFIBUS).

Supported functions wit PROFINET IM

Function "Shared device"

Function MSI (Modular Shared Input) and MSO (Modular Shared Output).

Function "Proximity detection"

Function configuration management ("option handling")


Product portfolio for PROFINET

For connecting to PROFINET the following Interface Modules are available:

  • IM 155-5 PN BA

  • IM 155-5 PN ST

  • IM 155-5 PN HF

These interface modules are integrated in the TIA Portal. In addition, GSD files available are available with which these interface modules can be integrated into any engineering tool and operated on any controller that supports PROFINET.

The IM 155-5 PN BA further improves the scalability of the ET 200MP distributed I/O system. It especially enables small-scale stations to be built cost-optimized. For example, it can be used to economically replace the "proprietary" line expansions of the S7-300 (IM 360 / IM 361) in the control cabinet, allowing you thereby to profit from the open fieldbus standard, PROFINET, at the same time.

The IM155-5PN HF can also be operated on an S7-400H. So-called "S2 Redundancy" is hereby supported. The system is configured using the GSD file and STEP 7 5.5, SP3.
