Ultra compact systems
Process control technology all-in-one: SIMATIC PCS 7 BOX
Today, PC-based systems are increasingly used for automation tasks as well. Often the resources of the increasingly powerful devices are not fully exhausted. So what could be more logical than combining the advantages of a process control system for small applications in a compact, PC-based solution? SIMATIC PCS 7 BOX is our low-cost compact system for entry into process control technology. It combines all the advantages of a classic process control system in a compact, PC-based solution especially for smaller applications. At the same time, by using SIMATIC PCS 7 standard components, the system offers full scalability and can be seamlessly expanded and networked.
The SIMATIC PCS 7 BOX compact control system can be used both stand-alone and in a plant network. It concentrates all essential components of a control system, automation system (AS), operator station (OS) and engineering system (ES), in one of the compact assembly technology. The special aspect: SIMATIC PCS 7 BOX can be expanded without restriction - without any incompatibilities - because it uses standard components from SIMATIC PCS 7. Further hardware and software components can therefore be added at any time.
Two product variants are available: with integrated software controller or with external controller (modular or embedded automation systems).
The system is thus predestined for the automation of plant automation:
- Small process applications
- Self-contained subprocesses (package units)
- Laboratories or test facilities Use as a training and education system
