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.


Frequency inverter MICROMASTER 4
The standard frequency inverter with high dynamics for variable-speed AC motors and geared motors can be integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7 through the SIMATIC PCS 7 block library.

  • Power range from 0.12 to 250 Kilowatt

  • Voltages from 200 to 600 V

  • Universally applicable, especially for operation of pumps and fans or conveyors

Sensors / actuators, analyzers, weighing and dosing systems

Siemens offers an extensive range of devices for the operation with the process control system, SIMATIC PCS 7. These include:

  • Measurement instruments for flow, pressure, temperature or fill level

  • Positioners

  • Devices for gas analysis

  • SIWAREX weighing systems

These devices are available in versions with PROFIBUS DP/PA interface and HART communication. The majority of devices is already integrated in the device catalog of the Process Device Manager, SIMATIC PDM.
