Modular S7-410 systems
Aside from their ruggedness, our modular systems are built mainly to be flexible: The automation systems can be easily expanded by pluggable I/O, functional and communication modules, to perfectly match your requirements.
Upgrades without downtimes: Freedom from interruptions now also applies to the upgrading of the system expansion card (SEC) that regulates the performance dimensioning of the CPU 410 according to the automation task. In this way, you can not only ensure uninterrupted operation during expansions, but also save on investment costs: You can now adapt the performance of your controllers precisely to the task at hand at any time and without interruption – without having to allow for the usual safety reserves.
In the future, anyone who wants to benefit from the extended range of functions of new block versions, for example, will no longer have to restart their automation systems. When using the new SIMATIC PCS 7 CPU 410-5H Process Automation and Version 8.1 of SIMATIC PCS 7, updates of individual block types are performed on the same uninterrupted basis as the importing of plant expansions, such as the adding of a motor.
Furthermore, with Version 8.1 the functionality of the second Ethernet interface of the SIMATIC PCS 7 CPU 410-5H Process Automation is expanded by PROFINET communication. Now you can implement redundant PROFINET ring structures using ring topology with media redundancy planning (MRP) without the need for additional communication cards.
