The intelligent choice for your automation tasks
Siemens offers the right controller for a wide range of automation requirements. The SIMATIC range of controllers comprises of Basic, Advanced, Distributed, Software and Motion Controllers offering impressive scalability and integration of their functions. The engineering in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) enables optimum automation solutions to be found for every application.
Failsafe CPUs for standard and safety applications
Failsafe CPUs are designed to meet the requirements for both standard and failsafe applications in stand-alone machines and plant wide automation. This basic automation controller leverages Integrated Safety applications with local Failsafe IO as well as connectivity to safety rated field devices via PROFIsafe over PROFINET. STEP 7 Safety Basic permits users to create their functional safety programs in the same engineering environment as their standard programs. This allows users to develop applications much faster because of the interoperability of the software components in the TIA Portal architecture.
