SIMATIC ET 200MP /S7-1500 Communication Modules
Serial communication via point-to-point connection and IO-Link Master
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/ET 200MP providing additional communication functions or more interfaces.
Communication modules enhance flexibility and performance of automation solutions using the SIMATIC S7-1500/ ET 200MP. Additional interfaces enable realization of complex automation structures or process optimization through connection to the enterprise management level.
Within a decentralized architecture with SIMATIC ET 200MP PtP Communication Modules are employed, the serial interfaces can be used to connect e.g. barcode or RFID readers for non-contact data transmission.
Four communication modules are available for connecting automation components via serial interfaces.
Connection of legacy and external systems possible
Connection of data readers or special sensors
Can be used centrally and in decentralized ET 200MP peripheral system
Variety of physical interfaces, e.g. RS232 and RS422 or RS485
Predefined protocols, e.g. 3964(R), Modbus RTU or USS
Application-specific protocols based on Freeport (ASCII)
Uniform programming interface for all modules
Diagnostics alarm for simple fault remediation
Basic and High Feature Modules with various interfaces:
The SIMATIC ET 200MP 8 Port IO-Link Master is based on the current IO-Link specification V1.1, which enables the consistent storage of the IO-Link device parameters in the master. This means that when a device is being replaced, the current parameters are automatically transferred to the new IO-Link device – without additional effort by the user.
The special feature of the SIMATIC ET 200MP IO-Link Master module: not only the device parameters are saved automatically, but also the master parameters. This makes replacing a module, whether master or device, possible without a programming device and without backing up the data.
Suitable for the connection of up to 8 IO-Link devices (three-wire connection) or 8 standard sensors
IO-Link Master according to IO-Link specification V1.1
Supported transfer rates: COM1, COM2 and COM3
Max. 32 bytes of input and 32 bytes of output data per module; individually parameterizable via S7-PCT or also directly in the TIA Portal
Master backup with "IO_LINK_MASTER_8" function block
Support for firmware update of IO-Link devices
Supports I&M data
Operating modes per channel: IO-Link, SIO or deactivated; adjustable with S7-PCT or TIA Portal
Supports Device und Master replacing without additional engineering effort
