Benefits of a well designed I/O system
With its high degree of protection IP65/67, particularly compact design, low space requirements and weight, SIMATIC ET 200AL is specially designed for distributed control electronics in tight spaces and involving motion. The SIMATIC ET 200AL devices are quickly and conveniently configured and commissioned using the TIA Portal. The modules can be incorporated in the automation network via PROFINET, PROFIBUS or the integration of ET 200SP.
SIMATIC ET 200AL modules stand out with a range of advantages as early as in the engineering phase, but also during assembly and in operation, making them the right choice of distributed I/O for a wide variety of applications.
Wider range of applications for compact IP65/67 IO system due to M8 and M12 modules
Higher channel density with more IOs per module
Greater distance between modules for use in large machines and systems
Up to 2 ampere actuators can be connected
Safe trip of actuators according to SIL2
Impressive in engineering and configuration
The integrated engineering in the TIA Portal enables consistent system diagnostics and efficient operation.
The possibility of interfacing to SIMATIC ET 200SP and the CAx-compatible labeling of all interfaces also ensure a high level of efficiency during configuration and commissioning.
The ET 200AL supports configuration management (option handling) for the realization of flexible machine concepts.
Impressive in assembly
Vertical or horizontal, screwed on from the front or from the side:
SIMATIC ET 200AL modules can be easily installed in any position. They are installed directly in a machine or assembly line on location and the sensors and actuators are then integrated by means of M8 or M12 connection technology.
Color coding of the sockets and the corresponding connecting cables simplifies wiring. In addition, socket arrangement has been optimized to facilitate cable laying. The cable ties can be secured directly on the module to support cables.
The modules can be optionally connected to PROFINET or PROFIBUS or integrated in SIMATIC ET 200SP. This makes for flexible configuration..
Impressive in operation
With a width of only 30 or 45 mm, the SIMATIC ET 200AL modules enable the connection of sensors and actuators in extremely small spaces by means of reliable M8 and M12 connection technology.
The modules comply with the IP65/67 protection class and operate reliably within a temperature range of -25 °C to 55 °C and with accelerations of up to 5 g. Plastic enclosures make the modules particularly lightweight. SIMATIC ET 200AL modules are thus the perfect choice for applications involving movement.
ET 200AL standard modules and their digital outputs can be shut down in groups safety-related. The Technical Report issued by the German Technical Inspectorate (TÜV) proves that the modules achieve safety class SIL CL2 and PL d. It also enables the PROFIenergy functionality to turn off coordinated individual users or complete production units of during non-production hours.
