Future-ready hardware platform for distributed control systemsSIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC PCS neo use the same application architecture and the same hardware portfolio. This is Siemens’ way of upholding traditions while applying all its innovative strength and taking important requirements into account – protecting existing expertise and investments for the future.
Flexible, robust hardware platform for maximum availability both now and in the future
The shared distributed control system (DCS) hardware platform for our SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC PCS neo distributed control systems ensures that you always have the right solution with the highest availability for your application range. The innovative and robust hardware offers maximum flexibility, reliability, and efficiency. With SIMATIC hardware for distributed control systems, you can count on your plants operating reliably over decades and on always being able to effectively implement modernizations or expansions. This makes it possible to sustainably improve existing processes and implement new ideas – both now and in the future.
SIMATIC S7-400 and distributed process I/O also allow you to take advantage of traditional SIMATIC STEP 7 or TIA Portal applications.
With our SIMATIC hardware for the process industries, we rely not only on continuing innovation and compatibility, but also and above all on sustainable service and support. This assures you of being able to operate your plants reliably over decades, particularly when it comes to modernization and expansion projects!Hartmut Klocker, Segment Lead Automation and Engineering Systems, Siemens AG
