SIMATIC ET 200MP has a distributed architecture: with a modular, scalable station architecture based on the I/O modules of SIMATIC S7-1500. The modules feature little parts variation. The front connector is also uniform for all 35 mm-wide components. The 15 mm top-hat rail integrated in the rail enables standard components to be mounted. The bottom line: installation, ordering, logistics, and spare parts management become considerably easier,
which helps save time and costs.
