SIMATIC S7 AS mEC RTX is a modular embedded controller in S7-300 design with ready-to-use pre-installed Windows operating system as a low-cost automation system. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.It is a software-based automation system inside an AS 300 form factor. This sturdy and compact automation system based on Simatic Microbox PC 427C is designed for 24-hour continuous maintenance-free operation in ambient temperature of up to 55 C. Simatic S7 AS mEC RTX features fast processing speed and is vibration-resistant because it does not have a fan or disk drive. These features and the compact measurements of the Simatic PCS 7 AS RTX, make it the perfect alternative to the traditional automation systems of the S7-400 series. It is ideally suited for distributed installation close to the plant, for OEM installations like package units, and for plants with large distributed infrastructure. The Simatic S7 AS mEC RTX can be used in the food and beverages industry, as well as the pharmaceutical and water and waste water industries.
