I/O module with CPU functionality and Profinet connection

11.04.2008
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has added a new interface module with CPU functionality to the Simatic ET200S product family of distributed I/O devices: the IM151-8 PN/DP CPU handles control tasks and communications functions via Profinet. The module is also available in the fail-safe version IM151-8 PN/DP F-CPU.

With the new IM151-8 PN/DP CPU module that has the performance power of a Simatic S7-300 CPU 314, users can implement distributed structures on Profinet. The Profinet communication interface with three ports for linear bus topologies and programming device functions is onboard and can be expanded with a Profibus DP master module.


As a Profinet IO Controller, the new interface module supports the real-time properties RT (Real Time) and IRT (Isochronous Real Time) and can control up to 128 IO Devices. Since it supports other open TCP/IP-based communication methods, the flexible module is also available for other application options.

The fail-safe version IM151-8F PN/DP F-CPU has an expanded RAM of 192 KB. It can be expanded centrally and in distributed configurations with standard and fail-safe modules. Fail-safe communication is handled on the basis of PROFIsafe. The module is certified up to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508, for use up to SIL 3 in accordance with EN 62061 and PL e in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
