One process controller for everything

Siemens Industry Automation Division is adding an especially powerful, versatile, and rugged CPU for the process industry to its Simatic controller family. Simatic PCS 7 CPU410-5H is currently the fastest and most powerful controller on the market and covers all applications, application scopes, and performance range with a single hardware and firmware platform. The CPU is supplied with the maximum configuration. According to the new dimensioning model, the user defines the performance required of the system using the expansion card to match the quantity framework and the size and type of application.

Simatic PCS 7 CPU 410-5H gives users of the Simatic PCS 7 process control system a high-performance controller with a computing capacity suitable for the high demands of the process industry. The controller is designed for around-the-clock industrial use and also withstands tough temperature, vibration, shock, and EMC requirements. The additional coating of the PCBs and electronic components complying with ISA-S71.04 Severity Level G3 enhances reliability in the presence of condensation and possible sources of corrosion.

The CPU is supplied as a standard high-end version in terms of memory, CPU power, and communication interfaces. It also has a failsafe design by default and is equipped with all functions for safety-related applications. Users define the required application-specific performance themselves with the system expansion card (SE card). With the SE card, the performance can be adapted at any time without replacing the CPU, for example if it becomes necessary to load more process objects. This also simplifies spare part management and reduces the associated costs.
