Distributed I/O system ET 200S - multifunctional I/O system
The SIMATIC ET 200S is a finely modular, distributed I/O system with degree of protection IP20, allowing operation in Ex zone 2 or 22 (except for operation with motor starters). Its design features fixed wiring, which enables pulling and plugging of I/O modules during runtime (hot swapping with fire certificate).

The range of I/Os that can be used with SIMATIC PCS 7 includes power modules for electronic modules and motor starters, analog and digital signal modules and motor starters with up to 7.5 kilowatts.

The implementation of safety applications is supported by:

  • Safety-related F-components, which are embedded in the SIMATIC Safety Integrated System, for example, terminal, power and electronic modules as well as motor starters

  • SIGUARD safety technology for motor starter applications with conventional security logic in plants with safety categories 2-4 (EN 954-1)
