Siemens Industry: Scalable Distributed I/O Supports ProfiNet

Simatic ET 200SP distributed I/O provides an IP20 degree of protection and supports the Profinet network.

It delivers fast cycle times, provides high system performance and easily integrates into an automation system via the company's TIA Portal or Simatic Step 7 engineering tools.The compact design of Simatic ET200SP ensures maximum economy in the switching cabinet: up to 64 modules with 64 x 16 signals can be accommodated on one meter of space. The I/O is suitable for standard control boxes with a depth of just 80 mm. High system performance is ensured with two Profinet interfaces and an internal data rate of 100 Mbit/s. An isochronous backplane bus provides high-precision, jitter-free data transmission. A bus adapter allows the user to freely select either RJ45 or FastConnect Profinet technologies. Integrated shielding on cables, shield connection elements for the terminal box, backplane bus and Profinet cable provides the system with a high degree of electromagnetic compatibility. Additionally, the ET 200SP I/O is equipped with an internal Profienergy power module that facilitates coordinated deactivation of individual loads or entire production units during unproductive periods.
