The decentralized I/O system for the SIMATIC S7-1500

The simple use of SIMATIC ET 200MP is exemplified by a modular and scalable station with the SIMATIC S7-1500 I/O modules in a distributed configuration. The modules have high channel density and low parts variance. As a result, ordering, logistics and spare-parts inventory are considerably simplified.

ET 200MP distributed I/O can improve your control application as well as your process.


The head module of a ET 200MP station can be an interface module or an intelligent CPU of the Advanced controller SIMATIC S7-1500.

Interface modules

The interface modules connect the I/O system to PROFINET or PROFIBUS and exchange data between the higher-level controller and the I/O modules.

Signal Modules

The digital and analog modules provide exactly the inputs/ outputs that are required for the respective task. They can be used both centrally, i.e. directly on the CPU, as well as locally in the ET 200MP I/O system.

Technology Modules

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

Communication Modules

Communication modules increase the communication capabilities of the S7-1500/ET 200MP through additional communication functions or more interfaces.
