Compact distributed I/O for plant and machinery construction

22.11.2011
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its Simatic ET 200 distributed I/O product family with a new generation of devices.

The especially compact design of the Simatic ET 200SP reduces the space required in the control cabinet and the device is characterized by user-friendly operation. Users in plant engineering and machine manufacturing benefit from the variable station set-up, fixed wiring and improved device and module identification features. The Simatic ET 200SP with IP20 degree of protection supports Profinet, is characterized by a fast cycle time and high system performance and can be integrated into the automation solution via the TIA Portal or Simatic Step 7 engineering tools.


Simatic ET 200SP

The new Simatic ET 200SP distributed I/O is based on a scalable design with variable station set-up options. The basic device can be expanded with up to 64 modules and can thus process 64x16 signals in the maximum configuration which still only requires one meter in the control cabinet. The compact design also means the system is suitable for standard control boxes with a depth of just 80 mm, even observing the standard bending radii. The integrated power module also saves additional space and simplifies load group formation.

During system design, great importance was attached to simple handling and practical use. The low parts variance also reduces warehousing costs for the user. No tools are required for installation and the user also saves time by simply combining the station modules. Mechanical coding protects the modules from damage if they are wrongly inserted, and a lateral latch mechanism provides a high degree of connection stability, even for vertical installation. In addition, it is possible to replace modules and terminal boxes during operation without risking station failure. Wiring has been simplified by the improved arrangement of the slots on the terminal box (rotated through 90 degrees) and the easy push-in technology. Module markings clearly display the most important wiring and channel information. Color-coded labels also simplify assignment of cables to the terminal box. The user can also identify machine and plant-specific modules with the help of identification plates and labeling strips.

The Simatic ET 200SP is equipped with two Profinet interfaces and an internal data rate of 100 Mbit/s ensures delivery of a high system performance. The backplane bus is isochronous with Profinet and can thus provide high-precision, virtually jitter-free data transmission. The bus adapter allows the user to freely select the most appropriate Profinet connection technology: RJ45 or FastConnect. The integrated shield concept, from cables to shield connection elements for the terminal box, to backplane bus and Profinet cable provides the system with a high degree of electromagnetic compatibility. Simatic ET 200SP is equipped with Profienergy functionality facilitating the coordinated deactivation of individual loads or entire production units during unproductive periods.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
