SIMATIC ET 200AL – the rugged I/O for effortless mounting anywhere
SIMATIC ET 200AL modules stand out with a range of advantages as early as in the engineering phase, but also during assembly and in operation, making them the right choice of distributed I/O for a wide variety of applications.
Impressive in engineering and configuration
The integrated engineering in the TIA Portal enables consistent system diagnostics and efficient operation. The possibility of interfacing to SIMATIC ET 200SP and the CAx-compatible labeling of all interfaces also ensure a high level of efficiency during configuration and commissioning. The ET 200AL supports configuration management (option handling) for the realization of flexible machine concepts.
Impressive in assembly
Vertical or horizontal, screwed on from the front or from the side: SIMATIC ET 200AL modules can be easily installed in any position. They are installed directly in a machine or assembly line on location and the sensors and actuators are then integrated by means of M8 connection technology. Color coding of the sockets and the corresponding connecting cables simplifies wiring. In addition, socket arrangement has been optimized to facilitate cable laying.
The cable ties can be secured directly on the module to support cables. The modules can be optionally connected to PROFINET or PROFIBUS or integrated in SIMATIC ET 200SP. This makes for flexible configuration.
Impressive in operation
With a width of only 30 or 45 mm, the SIMATIC ET 200AL modules enable the connection of sensors and actuators in extremely small spaces by means of reliable M8 and M12 connection technology. The modules comply with the IP65/67 protection class and operate reliably within a temperature range of –25 degC to +55 degC and with accelerations of up to 5 g. Plastic enclosures make the modules particularly lightweight. SIMATIC ET 200AL modules are thus the perfect choice for applications involving movement.
The outputs of the ET 200AL devices allow safety-related shutdown of actuators in groups. In addition, with the PROFIenergy functionality, individual consumers or entire production units can be shut down in a coordinated manner during production-free periods.
