With its high degree of protection IP65/67, particularly compact design, low space requirements and weight, SIMATIC ET 200AL is specially designed for distributed control electronics in tight spaces and involving motion. The SIMATIC ET 200AL devices are quickly and conveniently configured and commissioned using the TIA Portal. The modules can be incorporated in the automation network via PROFINET, PROFIBUS or the integration of ET 200SP.
The integrated engineering in the TIA Portal enables consistent system diagnostics and efficient operation. With the help of the TIA Selection Tool you can conveniently configure a ET 200AL system and easily order its components. The SIMATIC Automation Tool offers easy support for commissioning, maintenance and service. The possibility of interfacing to SIMATIC ET 200SP and the CAx-compatible labeling of all interfaces also ensure efficiency during configuration and commissioning. The ET 200AL supports configuration management (option handling) for the realization of flexible machine concepts.
SIMATIC ET 200AL modules can be easily installed in any position directly in a machine or assembly line on location. With a width of only 30 or 45 mm, the SIMATIC ET 200AL modules enable the connection of sensors and actuators in extremely small spaces by means of reliable M8 and M12 connection technology. Color coding of the sockets and the corresponding connecting cables simplifies wiring. Also, socket arrangement has been optimized to facilitate cable laying and the cable ties can be secured directly on the module to support cables. The modules can be optionally connected to PROFINET or PROFIBUS or integrated in SIMATIC ET 200SP.
The modules comply with the IP65/67 protection class and operate reliably within a temperature range of -25 to +55 °C and with accelerations of up to 5 g. Plastic enclosures make the modules particularly lightweight. SIMATIC ET 200AL modules are thus the perfect choice for applications involving movement. ET 200AL standard modules and their digital outputs can be shut down in groups safety related. The Technical Report issued by the German Technical Inspectorate (TÜV) proves that the modules achieve safety class SIL CL2 and PL d. It also enables the PROFIenergy functionality to turn off coordinated individual users or complete production units of during non-production hours.
Whether in engineering, installation or operation: The SIMATIC ET 200AL IO system offers a wealth of benefits – making it the ideal system for a host of applications.
