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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
