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: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
