S7-400 Function modules
The multi-facetted module range of S7-400 allows modular customization to suit the most varied tasks.
Apart from the CPUs with integrated functions and interfaces, there is a wide range of special modules in S7-400 design for technology.
Range of application
Wood, glass, stone and metal processing
General machine manufacturing
Rubber and plastic industry
High degree of accuracy and dynamic response
Specialized and universal modules with a wide range of functions
CPU is not involved since the functionality is stored in the firmware of each module
Quick reaction times (deterministic dynamic response)
Engineering with configuring tool, integrated into STEP 7
Design and function
Function modules are intelligent modules that independently execute the technological tasks and thus reduce the load on the CPU. They are used when a high level of accuracy and dynamic response is required.
