The proven intrinsically safe IO system for hazardous areas

Proven in field the SIMATIC ET 200iSP distributed I/O system now talks PROFINET and allows the transfer of I/O signals up to 3000 meters via fiber optic. The migration from PROFIBUS to PROFINET is simple and fast, only interface modules must be exchanged in the field. Typically used in production facilities of the process industry which often are faced with explosion hazards, the compact and cost-effective solution offers seamless integration into SIMATIC PCS neo, SIMATIC PCS 7, TIA Portal, and Step 7.

Highlights and benefits of the SIMATIC ET 200iSP at a glance

The intrinsically safe, modular I/O station is remarkably flexible, versatile and scalable. 

It limits engineering, installation and cabling overhead to a minimum. 

The solution requires less effort during commissioning, while it reduces the risks of wiring errors and simplifies bus connections of distributed I/O stations. 

Power supply and interface modules are designed redundantly and enable easy maintenance in run. Redundant PROFINET solutions R1, S2, and MRP are also available. The SIMATIC ET 200iSP allows hot-swapping during operation.

The system is suited for direct installation in areas subject to gas or dust explosion hazards, i.e., in Ex Zone 1 and 2 as well as in Zones 21 and 22. Sensors and actuators may be located directly in Zones 0 and 20.
