Siemens Industry, Inc. Simatic S7-1200 Compact Controller

Simatic S7-1200 Compact Controller from Siemens helps OEMs, system integrators and end users reduce development time and cost by providing a compact controller, HMI and networking configuration integrated with one engineering software package. The S7-1200 compact controller includes built-in Ethernet, high speed motion control I/O, onboard analog I/O, and HMI panel connectivity to minimize space requirements and the need for additional hardware for small control systems. New Simatic Step 7 Basic engineering software provides one interface and user program, eliminating the need to purchase and maintain multiple engineering packages required for traditional automation systems. The automated interfaces between controller and HMI configuration lessen the error potential common with manual entry. Task-oriented and intuitive editors in Simatic Step 7 Basic provide a high degree of user-friendliness and engineering efficiency. Tight integration among controllers, HMI panels, and software satisfies users’ need for flexible control systems that can perform multiple operations with minimal changeovers.
