Controllers for extreme environmental conditions in mid-level & high-end automation

Siemens has developed a new controller for extreme environmental conditions. Siplus S7-1500 has the same performance characteristics as the newest standard controller family Simatic S7-1500 for mid-level and high-end machine and plant automation. Other outstanding features of the new controller Siplus S7-1500 are reliable operation under extreme medial loads such as humidity, corrosive vapors, salts or dusts.

• Protection from condensation, aggressive environments, and corrosive gasses
• Safe cold start and continuous operation in an extended temperature range
• Additional air conditioning not necessary
      In an extended temperature range, the unit functions reliably during cold starts as well as in continual operation. This saves energy costs for the user because no additional air conditioning is necessary.

      Robust, enhanced modules make it possible to safely use the system everywhere from offshore plants and harsh industrial environments up to applications at extreme altitudes. The new device is protected against condensation and corrosive gasses, as well as aggressive and saline atmospheres. The Siplus S7-1500 controller has the same performance and efficiency characteristics as the Simatic S7-1500, the new standard controller generation from Siemens. Its characteristic features include outstanding system performance and a host of functions integrated as standard, including Motion Control, Security for maximum possible plant security, and Safety for safety applications that are easy to implement. Greater efficiency is represented in particular by the innovative design for simple commissioning and safe operation, the configurable diagnostic functions for the plant status and the integration into the TIA Portal for simple engineering and low project costs.
