EC: Simatic S7-1200F safety controller

Safety - Machine safety: The Simatic S7-1200F is a safety controller for fail-safe and standard functionality in a single compact system with minimum space requirements and easy reproducibility of the control cabinet. This is a Control Engineering 2016 Engineers’ Choice Honorable Mention.


SIMATIC S7-1200F Safety Controller, SiemensSafety and standard functionality in a single compact system with minimum space requirements in the control cabinet. Simatic S7-1200 safety controllers are the ideal choice for simple and autonomous tasks in the low to mid performance ranges. Designed to increase flexibility, safety, efficiency, and productivity at the plant floor level, these compact devices are characterized by minimal space requirements, telecontrol capability and integrated technology modules for measuring, weighing and counting, so that no other special modules are required. Integrated diagnostics further increase uptime.

As an example in series manufacturing, this controller enables savings during planning, commissioning, and documentation. Plus increased productivity with reduced engineering effort.

Standardized engineering with the most versatile Step 7 Safety Basic in the TIA Portal, for easy creation of fail-safe programs. Functionalities include drag-and-drop, project-wide cross-reference list, safety administration editor, online/offline comparator and more. The Simatic S7-1200F is certified to EN 61508, up to SIL 3 according to IEC 62061 and PL e according to ISO 13849. Also integrated is optimized security, copy, manipulation protection and also includes password protection set up for F-configuration and F-program for IT security. Maximum performance with shortest possible machine response times for enhanced productivity. The Simatic S7-1200F delivers the ultimate plus in productivity and efficiency, in the smallest package size, also providing easy reproducibility of the control cabinet.
