SIMATIC ET 200iSP
The proven intrinsically safe IO system for hazardous areas
The SIMATIC ET 200iSP distributed I/O system is the economical solution for areas subject to explosion hazards. The intrinsically safe, modular I/O station is particularly flexible and requires minimum engineering, installation and cabling overhead. The SIMATIC ET 200iSP is typically used in production facilities of the process industry and offers optimum integration into PCS 7 and other control systems. The system is suited for direct installation in areas subject to gas or dust explosion hazards, i.e. in Zone 1 and 2 as well as in Zones 21 and 22; sensors and actuators may be located directly in Zones 0 and 20. For the SIMATIC ET 200iSP comprehensive standards and approvals are available.
The ET 200iSP is a modular, intrinsically-safe I/O system with IP30 degree of protection which can be operated in gas and dust atmospheres at ambient temperatures from -20 to +70 °C. It is optimized for use with SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC S7, but can also be integrated in other systems such as SIMATIC S5 per GSD file.
In accordance with ATEX directive 2014/34/EU, the ET 200iSP remote I/O stations can be installed directly in Ex Zones 1, 2, 21 or 22 as well as in non-hazardous areas. The intrinsically-safe sensors, actuators and HART field devices can also be located in zone 0 or 20 if necessary.
The modular design of the ET 200iSP makes it possible to optimally adapt the remote I/O stations to the respective automation task through individual configuration and flexible expansion.
