Information on SIMATIC ET 200S

Introduced in 2012, the successor system of the tried and tested SIMATIC ET 200S, the SIMATIC ET 200SP, brings a number of advantages.

For this reason, we recommend the use of the successor system SIMATIC ET 200SP for new automation concepts.

In addition to the well-known good system properties of the SIMATIC ET 200S such as

  • Finely modular design for adaptation to the automation task in hand
  • Permanent wiring (replacement of the I/O modules without affecting the wiring, even during operation)
  • Connection to PROFINET and PROFIBUS

SIMATIC ET 200SP offers further innovative system advantages compared to SIMATIC ET 200S:

  • Up to 50 % reduced space requirements in the control cabinet, with unchanged cross-section area
  • No tools needed for one-handed wiring thanks to push-in terminals
  • Reduced part variance with increased scope of functions
  • System-integrated self-assembling load group formation without power modules
  • As many as 16 channels per module and 1024 channels per station
  • Flexible PROFINET connection via BusAdapter (RJ45, FastConnect, plastic or glass fiber-optic cables), also as integrated media converter
  • System-integrated shield connection
  • Short response times and isochronous mode for motion applications
  • High-speed data acquisition (digital from 1 µs, analog from 50 µs) and transmission (up to 100 Mbps):
    for digital signals with time-based I/O for precisely timed controlling independent of bus cycles;
    for analog and digital signal oversampling, n-fold acquisition or output of signals within a PN cycle.
  • Measurement of machine consumption, e.g. current, using an integrated energy meter (up to 480 V)
  • Comprehensive diagnostics function (wire break and short-circuit) integrated by default even in Standard-class modules
  • System-integrated fail-safe modules (PROFIsafe) with simplified switchless address setting
  • Enhanced configuration control for easy option handling
  • Operation with gaps
  • Multi hot swapping
  • Larger module range (AS-i, AS-i Safety, additional CPU versions, Open Controller, etc.)
  • MSI/MSO: Simultaneous access to input and output data from up to 4 controllers
  • Adaptation of measuring range: Increased resolution by adapting the measuring range to a limited section of a measuring range supported by the analog input module
  • Station expansion through system-integrated IP67 components (ET 200AL)
  • Block I/O to IP20 degree of protection with 32 channels, comprising terminal block and electronic block
  • Discretely modular expansion to maximum of 128 channels or 12 modules
  • The complete ET 200S module spectrum can be used (with the exception of PROFIsafe modules)
  • Separation of terminal connections and electronics with permanent wiring
  • Screw-type and spring-loaded terminal connections
  • Standard terminal block with 2-wire connection system; 3-wire and 4-wire systems available using additional terminals
  • Mounting on standard rail
  • Hot swapping of expansion modules
  • Communication via PROFIBUS
  • Up to 100 bytes inputs and outputs (address space)
