Efficient automation systems for the process industries

The flexibly configurable SIMATIC S7-400 automation systems from Siemens offer the right hardware for every task, which makes them ideal for complex applications in the process industries. Depending on your requirements, you’ll find fail-safe, and extremely powerful controllers as well as components for tasks where especially harsh environmental conditions call for robustness.

A wide range of peripheral devices for automation in the process industries

Distributed process I/O

Strong and compact distributed process I/O

Whether compact or modular, purely digital I/O interfaces or completely distributed systems that include integrated drive technology, whether installed in the control cabinet or directly in a harsh industrial environment, the SIMATIC ET 200 product family permits powerful and distributed applications and is fully compatible with SIMATIC and SITRANS field devices and fieldbus solutions.

PROFINET enables real-time communication in the process industries

Industrial communication

Reliable and secure networking of plants with our distributed control systems

Today’s communication solutions in the process industries have to handle data transfer in real time, communication in hazardous areas, widely distributed plants, and much more. Our SIMATIC PCS neo and SIMATIC PCS 7 distributed control systems support established international communication standards and are fully reliant on PROFINET, the world’s leading Industrial Ethernet standard for real-time communication.

PC-based systems and client/server solutions

SIMATIC PC-based products are available in various configurations and performance ranges as rack and box PCs. Thanks to their scalability and device versions for special environmental conditions, they can easily be integrated in new and existing automation concepts. SIMATIC PC-based products offer you a flexible and innovative platform with long-term availability for applications and solutions that go beyond the functions of a traditional controller.
