Distributed peripheral

Flexible, distributed solutions are state of the art in automation engineering these days. Whether compact or modular, purely digital I/O interfaces or fully distributed systems including embedded drive engineering, installed in the switch cabinets or operating directly in harsh industrial environments - the process control system, SIMATIC PCS 7, offers the right solution for every application and numerous options for connecting I/O devices.


Distributed I/O system ET 200iSP for hazardous areas
ET 200iSP is a modular, intrinsically safe I/O system with degree of protection IP30 that can be expanded by up to 32 electronic modules (2/4/8 channels). ET 200iSP, suitable for gas and dust atmospheres, can be installed directly in Ex zones 1, 2, 21 or 22 as well as non-hazardous areas in accordance with ATEX Directive 94/9/EC. The intrinsically safe sensors, actuators and HART field devices can also be located in zone 0 or 20 as required. If a higher degree of protection is needed, ET 200iSP can also be installed in stainless steel paneled enclosures. The enclosures offered in various sizes conform to degree of protection IP65 and can also be used in Ex zones 1 and 21.
