- The modular controllers for innovative system solutions in the manufacturing industry
The SIMATIC S7-300 has been designed for
innovative system solutions with the focus on manufacturing engineering,
and as a universal automation system, it represents an optimal solution
for applications in centralized and distributed configurations:
The product range comprises 7 Standard CPUs, 6 Compact
CPUs, 6 failsafe CPUs and 2 Technology CPUs.
The ability to integrate powerful CPUs with Industrial Ethernet/PROFINET
interface, integrated technological functions, or fail-safe designs make
additional investments unnecessary.
The S7-300 can be set up in a modular configuration without the need
for slot rules for I/O modules. There is a wide range of modules
available both for the centralized and the distributed configuration
with ET 200M.
The Micro Memory Card as a data and program memory makes a backup
battery superfluous, and with it, part of the maintenance costs. In
addition, an associated project, including symbols and comments, can be
stored on this memory card to facilitate service calls.
The Micro Memory Card also enables simple program or firmware updates.
The Micro Memory Card can be used during operation for storing and
accessing data, e.g. for measured value archiving or recipe processing.
In addition to standard automation, safety technology and motion
control can also be integrated in an S7-300.
Many of the S7-300 components are also available in a SIPLUS version
for external environmental conditions, e.g. extended temperature range
(-25...+60 °C) and for use where there is aggressive
