SIMATIC TOP connect
Innovative and efficient system cabling for your control cabinet concepts
With SIMATIC TOP connect, Siemens delivers a complete range of connection technology for the SIMATIC S7-300, S7-1500 and S7-1200, as well as for the SIMATIC ET 200M, ET 200MP and ET 200SP and LOGO!. Pre-assembled for an easy plug-in. Various versions are available: the fully modular connection according to the modular design principle and the flexible connection with bundled single cores, or connection using the universal connecting cable. The outcome is the same in both cases: the contact is made, the connection is established, error sources eliminated and you are ready to go.
Cabling made easy: SIMATIC TOP connectError-free and reliable wiring both inside and outside the control cabinet is an important factor in ensuring the availability of your plant. SIMATIC TOP connect system cabling helps you save wiring time and minimize sources of error. Various wiring options are available: the fully modular connection according to the building block principle, the flexible connection with bundled single wires and the universal connecting cable. The benefit for you is clarity instead of tangled cables, a quick and secure connection instead of mixed-up contacts, and reliability instead of troubleshooting. Simply a TOP connection that enables you to save up to 80 percent in wiring costs.
Fully modular connection – rapid field connections
Modular “building block” provides the fastest and most secure system cabling
Fully modular connections simply, quickly and securely link sensors and actuators in the field to a SIMATIC S7 or distributed IO devices. The connection consists of front connector modules for the S7-1500 and S7-300, the ET 200MP and ET 200M, attachable connecting cables and terminal modules to replace conventional terminal blocks, and also permit voltage and performance adaptation.
Flexible connection: simple wiring in the control cabinet
Clearly bundled individual wires ensure full flexibility
The flexible connection enables sensors and actuators mounted in the control cabinet to be connected to the SIMATIC S7 more quickly and easily. To achieve this, the front connector is prewired for connection to the digital IO assembly with 20 or 40 individual wires. The clearly labeled individual cores at the other end of the wire bundle can be routed to any element in the control cabinet.
Universal connecting cables – for all control cabinet concepts
Link between standard connection and terminal module
Wiring of SIMATIC S7-1500 IO (25 mm), SIMATIC ET 200SP, SIMATIC S7-1200 and LOGO! with the sensors/actuators is a significant factor with respect to time/cost overhead, configuring, control cabinet installation, procurement and ease of service. With SIMATIC TOP connect system cabling, establishing a reliable connection is simple and quick.
The unshielded universal connecting cable is available in lengths of 0.5 to 2 m for a wide range of control cabinet concepts. It is used to join the standard connection on SIMATIC or LOGO! devices with the SIMATIC TOP connect terminal module, and transmits eight signals and the supply voltage.
