SIMATIC S7-1200 – Flexible thanks to wide variety of communication options

Standardization in automation technology
An argument for the SIMATIC S7-1200 programmable logic controller

When speed and flexibility are increasingly required in mechanical engineering and manufacturing, it's not feasible to start from scratch with every new machine or production adjustment. A standardized approach is required at the earliest possible stage, both in engineering and in the use of automation components.

The engineering concept relating to the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller is beneficial wherever standardization is to be implemented in the automation environment. The engineering is embedded in the TIA Portal software framework, which ensures that the configuration can also be integrated with other Siemens controllers and HMI devices. Standardization is supported by libraries for common functions or communication tasks and integrated system diagnostics. This makes it easier to reuse a program module in the next plant project or to proceed systematically in the event of an error occurring in production. The extensive portfolio of S7-1200 modules guarantees a diverse range of possible applications, which is expanded even further by the end-to-end communication with an S7-1500 or the ET 200 IO devices.

When standardization is required in the automation of a plant, SIMATIC S7-1200 and the TIA Portal are the right choice.
