Information on product lifecycle
The SIMATIC S7-300/ET 200M system families are part of our established product range and will definitely be available until 2023. Upon publication of a product phase-out announce-ment, the respective product will be available as a spare part for a period of ten more years.
SIMATIC S7-300 and its IO-sytem ET 200M are and remain fully developed, proven product families. Many new requirements regarding handling and performance can no longer be fully met with the traditional architecture. This has led to the development of the next generation of S7-1500 controllers with improved system properties. The basic SIMATIC properties have been retained for compatibility.
