Highest performance

Despite its compact design the SIMATIC ET 200SP proves to be one of the most powerful distributed IO systems.

Communication with PROFINET

Fast communication

High-performance automation solutions with distributed I/O systems are only possible by means of industrial communication. The powerful Ethernet standard for automation offers high-performance transmission of large volumes of data. With the shortest cycle times, PROFINET also provides sufficient reserves for future requirements. The isochronous operation of the backplane bus of SIMATIC ET 200SP permits low-jitter transmission of data – and therefore maximum precision.

Safety Integrated

SIMATIC ET 200SP also enables safety-related communication. The safety modules for DI and DO conform with the standard modules in terms of size. Their functional safety is certified in accordance with EN 61508 and they are designed for safety-related use at up to SIL3 according to EN 62061 and PL e according to ISO 13849.  One particular feature of the F-modules of SIMATIC ET 200SP is that the F-addresses no longer have to be set manually by means of the DIL switches on the module. They are now assigned by means of the engineering during commissioning which simplifies the setting process and saves time.

Hot swapping

With SIMATIC ET 200SP, hot swapping is also possible in the case of multiple modules (multi hot swapping). This means that several modules can be removed and replaced at the same time during system operation. In this way, only the affected modules are out of service and not the entire station. This reduces downtimes and raises productivity, as unaffected system components of the ET 200SP continue in operation.

Increased energy efficiency

Increased energy efficiency

SIMATIC ET 200SP with PROFIenergy increases energy efficiency in automation.
PROFIenergy reduces the system energy consumption by performing a controlled switch-off during user’s breaks and machine idle time. SIMATIC ET 200SP itself has a very low energy consumption due to its special housing.

Extreme requirements

Extreme requirements

For use under extremely harsh industrial conditions, such as extended temperature ranges (incl. condensation) or athmospheres laden with corrosive gases, Siemens offers the refined variant SIPLUS ET 200SP that is based on SIMATIC components - as part of the SIPLUS extreme family.


AS Interface

AS-Interface is the simple and effective bus system that links all sensors and actuators of the lowest field level with the ET 200SP or a higher-level controller by means of a yellow two-wire cable – and this can all now be done on a safety-related basis by means of ASIsafe.
The CM AS-i master in the ET 200SP permits the connection of up to 62 sensors and actuators. And with the AS-I Safety Module the AS-I network can be expanded safely without additional wiring in SIL3 according to EN 62061 and PL e according to ISO 13849. Both standard and safety-related data can be exchanged completely and transparently via PROFINET or PROFIBUS and AS-Interface.


IO Link

IO-Link ensures uniform interfacing of switching devices, sensors or RFID devices with the control level using a cost-effective point-to-point link. The IO Link master SIMATIC ET 200SP is based on IO-Link specification V1.11. One of the benefits ist storage of IO-Link device parameters (and maser parameters) in the master. This means that when a device is replaced, the current parameters are automatically transferred to the replacement IO Link device - without any additional application outlay for the user.

Communication with PROFIBUS

The SIMATIC ET 200SP interface module is also available with a PROFIBUS interface. PROFIBUS is a field-proven communication standard that is widely used today.

Designed with Highest Shield Protection

From the conductor, plug box, back panel to the PROFINET cable of the SIMATIC ET 200SP, they are designed with a consistent shield concept to ensure the highest possible electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) protection. The benefits of this design are improved signal quality and increased communication reliability.
