The ET 200S motor starters can be connected to the field-proven PROFIBUS and PROFINET bus systems. In this way, the computing power of the centralized SIMATIC S7-300, for example, can be relocated direct into the SIMATIC ET 200S distributed I/O system. This offloads centralized controllers and also enables fast response times to time-critical signals.
Your benefits with the communication-capable ET 200S motor starters – at a glance:
Diagnostics messages can be reported to higher-level controllers
Operating data can be visualized via PCS 7 faceplates, for example
Even fail-safe signals can be exchanged with fail-safe controllers up to SIL 3 / PL e
