Siemens Programmable Logic Controllers: Safety Without Breaking the Bank

SE Automation and Siemens would like to introduce you to Siemen’s line of Programmable Logic Controllers. Programmable logic controllers (“PLCs”) are commonly used throughout the industrial control and automation industries. Siemen’s series of PLCs offer integrated safety along the entire production line and offer both wired and wireless functionality, providing consistent communication. PLCs by Siemens are cost-effective, offering dependable safety you can trust.

Siemens knows that when it comes to protecting and monitoring your production, “more expensive” doesn’t necessarily mean better. The SIMATIC S7-1500 offers enhanced functionality and protection.  These PLCs are used in all areas of production automation, demonstrating incredible functionality in middle to high-end machines. The SIMATIC S7-1200 Controllers offer identical protection without the price and fuss of extra hardware.

Siemens PLCs are highly functional, offering both wired and wireless support for their devices. Through multiple points of communication Siemen’s PLCs can offer protection across the entire production line. Process signals, as well as safe signals, can be recorded in a central location or remotely using PROFINET.

Siemen’s advantage over other manufacturers comes from their ability to integrate safety along not just one piece of the production line, but the entire line itself.  The PLC’s compact design is particularly suitable for series machine manufacturing and offers excellent safety within a limited space.

Siemen’s portfolio of PLCs is user-friendly, offering safety across the entire PLC line. The PLC’s compact design and ease of installation allow you to protect your production without emptying your wallet. From HMI’s to drives, Siemen’s umbrella of protection has you covered.

Features and Benefits:

  • Supports up to three ethernet ports
  • Wireless support through PROFINET
  • Compact in unit design eliminates complicated set-up
  • Safety monitoring across the entire line

The Integrating Factor: SIMATIC S7-1200

White Paper by Pamela Angelica Pacheco Tellez, Marketing Manager with Siemens AG

The vision of a self-controlling, self-optimizing, self-organizing factory has now become a fixed part of the industrial and automation worlds. Networked, intelligent systems, which control processes autonomously, are technically no longer dreams of the future. But even in the details, Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are opening up new applications for optimizing processes. However, this requires machines and systems to be easily integrated into a common data environment.

One application that requires such integration is data-based Condition Monitoring, which allows maintenance activities to be matched to actual needs and better scheduled. The networking of data also facilitates new approaches to process optimization, such as optimizing of energy efficiency. The machines or plant sections have often already been energetically optimized. An overall view of all energy data combined with intelligent networking of the entire operation opens up further potential for recognizing and using energy intelligently. For example by intelligent load management or chaining processes with complementary energy requirements. However, modern production facilities are not yet self-organizing, but they can be organized flexibly and controlled by new, modular line concepts, in which production stages can be combined in many different ways.
