Plants in the process industry have to meet increasingly stringent requirements for flexibility, scalability, availability and security – and, with plant lifecycles of 30 years and more, provide a high level of investment security for the future at the same time. With SIMATIC PCS 7, we provide the intelligent answer to this complex area of focus.
During the development of SIMATIC PCS 7, the new version of the tried and tested process control system, the focus was on the forward-looking possibilities of digitalization all the way down to the field level. The system solution was therefore expanded with special high-performance and compact hardware products that support PROFINET – the world's leading Industrial Ethernet standard – and create more freedom for the plant layout and operation.
