For the first time Siemens has included a PC-based Controller in its offering for the SIMATIC Controllers portfolio the SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller.
The CPUs 1500S Software Controller for PC-based automation with SIMATIC Industrial PCs is based on the SIMATIC S7-1500 and is operated independently of Windows, thus offering a high level of system availability: This is advantageous for fast controller ramp-up, for example, and makes it possible to carry out Windows updates and rebooting while the control system is running.

The combination of a PC-based Controller and programming in high-level languages is particularly suitable for special-purpose machine manufacturing. The programs and engineering handling for the new software controller are fully compatible with the standard SIMATIC S7-1500 Controllers. It features both know-how and access protection as well as important automation functions such as for positioning axes, and interfaces to PROFIBUS and PROFINET.
