Communication processors for Basic Controller S7-1200


Secure communication via Industrial Ethernet with CP1243-1

The communications options of the SIMATIC S7-1200 automation system are extended to include security functions and an Ethernet-based connection to a Telecontrol control station.

The use of the communication module CP 1243-1 enables protected access to the S7-1200 via VPN technology and firewall.

In addition, the CP 1243-1 enables the S7-1200 to be connected to a Telecontrol control station, e. g. TeleControl Basic, via an Ethernet-based network.

Minimizing cabling overhead with CSM 1277

The CSM 1277 is an Industrial Ethernet switch with compact design for use in the SIMATIC S7-1200. With the CSM 1277, the Ethernet interface of the SIMATIC S7-1200 can be multiplied to enable simultaneous communication with control and programming devices, other controllers, or the office world.

The CSM 1277 and the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller can be used to implement simple automation networks at low cost.
