Distributed Controller SIMATIC ET 200 CPUs with Safety Integrated; CPUs with Safety Integrated for series machines with limited space and machines with distributed architecture
Thanks to their compact design, Distributed Controllers are particularly suitable for series machine manufacturing. The integrated safety function makes the system particularly compact, since the absence of the safety controller that would otherwise be required saves space in the control cabinet. They can be accommodated in small control boxes directly on the machine.
In networked plants, connection to a production line’s central control cabinet is realized via PROFINET.
