Increase productivity with the ultimate power: SIMATIC S7-1500

The Advanced Controller SIMATIC S7-1500 can be used in the entire automation industry in applications that are medium-sized to high-end machines with high demands on performance, communication, flexibility and technological features.

Within the SIMATIC S7-1500 Portfolio, there are various CPU types for multiple performance classes available.

Besides the standard CPUs and the compact CPUs, the Portfolio will be enlarged by the
S7-1500 T-CPU and CPU 1518 ODK.
The technology-CPUs are offering a wide range of motion control function such as cam disks and constant velocity as well as the possibility to execute C/C++ code on the CPU 1518 ODK.

System overview

Through its many innovations, the new SIMATIC S7-1500 controller sets new standards for maximized productivity.

Central processing units

The central processing units (CPUs) are the heart of the SIMATIC S7-1500. They execute the user program and network the controller with other automation components...

Signal modules

The signal modules or I/O modules provide the interface between the controller and the process.

Technology modules

Technology modules (TM) offer hardware-level signal processing for rapid counting, measurement and position registration for a variety of encoders.


Interfaces for communication via PROFINET and in part PROFIBUS DP as well are already integrated in the S7-1500 CPUs. Communication modules increase the communication capabilities of the S7-1500...

Human Machine Interface

SIMATIC HMI is optimized to meet your specific human machine interface needs using open and standardized interfaces in hardware and software...


SIMATIC S7-1500 is perfectly integrated with the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) for maximum efficiency in engineering.

Starter Kits

Thanks to the many system innovations the controller can be installed, connected, and commissioned quickly and easily.
