Decentralized intelligence with distributed I/O

The all-rounder for modern automation in wind power plants

With SIMATIC ET 200, Siemens offers a multifunctional, modular system for distributed automation. It enables you to efficiently exploit the full potential of electricity production. The system is characterized by its versatility of use: In the control cabinet of a wind turbine in IP20, without a control cabinet directly in the wind turbine in IP65/67, and in hazardous areas. A particularly convenient feature is the transfer of the configuration from the ET 200 modules directly to the TIA Portal. You benefit from predefined process data that you just have to connect to the control variables of the wind turbine.

Your benefits at a glance

  • Highly flexible, modular and finely scalable solutions – tailored to your specific requirements

  • Salt mist-resistant variants – particularly suitable for offshore use

  • Flexible cabling because EMC does not need to be taken into consideration

  • Energy measurement up to 480 V directly in the IO system eliminates the need for additional hardware

  • Reduced cabling and space requirements with higher configuration limits

  • Systems with integrated safety functions

  • High degree of ruggedness according to IP65/67, and can be used down to -40 °C – for cabinet-free installation under harsh environmental conditions

  • Low space requirements for the setup of compact control boxes

  • Intelligent diagnostics functions

  • M12 connector for maximum resistance to vibration

  • Rugged M8 connector with low space requirements (e.g. in the wing)
