The new modular SIMATIC S7-1200 controller is at the core of our new offering for simple but highly precise automation tasks. The SIMATIC S7-1200 controller is modular and compact, versatile, a secure investment, and is powerfully fit for a full range of applications.
A scalable and flexible design, a communication interface that fulfills the highest standards of industrial communication and a full range of powerful integrated technology functions make this controller an integral part of a complete and comprehensive automation solution.
The SIMATIC S7-1200 system comes in five different models, CPU 1211C, CPU 1212C, CPU 1214C, 1215C and 1217C, that may each be expanded to exactly fit your machine requirements.
One signal board can be added inside the front of any CPU to easily expand the digital or analog I/Os without affecting the physical size of the controller.
Signal modules can be connected to the right side of the CPU to further expand the digital or analog I/O capacity.CPU 1212C accepts two, CPU 1214C, CPU 1215C and CPU 1217C accept eight signal modules.
Finally, all SIMATIC S7-1200 CPUs can be equipped with up to three communication modules on the left side of the controller for performing point-to-point serial communication, as well as various distributed network architectures.
