EC: SIMATIC S7-1500
Machine & Embedded Control - PLCs: The SIMATIC S7-1500 is the new generation of controllers that sets new standards in power and efficiency for maximum productivity. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
The newly introduced SIMATIC S7-1500 Controller family sets new standards in Power and Efficiency for maximum productivity. The S7-1500 expands the advantages of the existing SIMATIC S7-1200 micro-controller into higher level PLC applications, giving complete scalability throughout the SIMATIC controller offering overall. Machine downtime is minimized due to powerful, built in diagnostics, and complete transparency of these diagnostics on HMI Panel, Web, PG—and on the built in CPU color display for simple, tool free operator use! The S7-1500 is seamlessly integrated with HMI and Drives within the TIA Portal—meaning simplified selection and parameterization, efficient global libraries, and common diagnostics all within the same application, reducing engineering and commissioning significantly.
