SIMATIC Control Systems -highly flexible in dynamic applications

SIMATIC Control systems


SIMATIC TDC is the perfect modular multiprocessor automation system for drive, control and technology tasks with high volumes and short cycle times. SIMATIC TDC consists of one or several subracks. The subracks are equipped with processor, periphery and communication modules. The enhanced application module FM 458-1 DP combines powerful arithmetic operations ability, high processing speed, precision and flexibility. These are the features required to solve a wide range of processing tasks universally even with extremely high throughput rates.


Control systems product range

Every SIMATIC PLC control system from Siemens offers top-level performance, flexibility and functionality for demanding mechatronic tasks.

Multi Processor control system SIMATIC TDC

The SIMATIC TDC PLC control system is freely configurable using STEP 7, the engineering tools CFC and SFC, and the D7-SYS block library. It contains freely combinable function blocks, from simple mathematic or logical operations through motion control of all linear and rotational axes.

SIMATIC TDC solves even complex drive, control and technology tasks with maximum quantity frameworks and shortest cycle times on one single platform.

The system is used particularly for large plants in the process, energy and drive technology:

  • Metal production and metal processing: Wire-drawing plants, stretcher levelers, bending and straightening machines, presses, circular arc type plants, rolling mills, upsetting devices, shearing and winding machines
  • High Voltage Direct Current Transmission Systems (HVDC)
  • Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS), e.g. Reactive Power Compensation solutions

SIMATIC FM 458-1 DP High End Application module

SIMATIC FM 458-1 DP is based on more than 15 years experience with high-performance control systems and combines this know-how with the advantages of SIMATIC – the leading automation system for decades. In contrast to other function modules with static structures/functions, the FM 458-1 DP application module can be configured flexibly and adapted to individual requirements.

The FM 458-1 DP application module from the SIMATIC S7-400 system is available for mechatronic solutions with high cycle rates, especially in the production, packaging and printing machine industries.
