SIMATIC TOP connect – system cabling for SIMATIC S7

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.

Fully modular connection

  • Guaranteed system conformity with SIMATIC S7-1500 and ET 200MP
  • Reduced cabling work
  • Fast connection of sensors and actuators in the field
  • Modular system with minimum installation costs
  • No mixing-up of single wires
  • Reduced commissioning, testing and service times
  • Terminal modules replace terminal blocks and offer signaling of digital IOs by means of LED and voltage adjustments, for example, from 230 V AC to 24 V DC

Flexible connection

  • Guaranteed system conformity with SIMATIC S7-1500 and ET 200MP
  • Easy connection of sensors and actuators in the control cabinet
  • Reduced commissioning times, as the front connector is already wired
  • 0.5 mm² wire cross sections for higher currents
  • UL and CSA certified single wires for the U.S. market
  • Halogen-free versions for use in building automation
SIMATIC TOP connect for SIMATIC S7-1200 and 25-mm-S7-1500, ET200 SP and LOGO!

For S7-1200, 25-mm-S7-1500, ET 200SP and LOGO!

System cabling for SIMATIC S7-1200, 25-mm-S7-1500/-ET 200SP, and LOGO!

The universal connecting cable is the link between the standard connection for the SIMATIC S7-1200, LOGO!, SIMATIC ET 200SP or the SIMATIC S7-1500 IO (25 mm), and the SIMATIC TOP connect terminal modules. It transmits eight signals and the supply voltage. The connecting cable is available in lengths ranging from 0.5 to 2 m.

 

The universal connecting cable

  • Wire end ferrules for universal connection to controller inputs and outputs
  • Marking of cable ends to ensure error-free wiring
  • 16-pin IDC plug for 8 digital IO terminal modules
  • Connection to coupling relays for isolating and adjusting potential
  • TOP connect now also available for SIMATIC S7-1500 IO (25 mm), ET 200SP, S7-1200 and LOGO! for multiple local uses
  • Tested connecting cables for error-free operation

System Cabling for S7-300 and ET 200M

SIMATIC TOP connect offers two cabling systems for efficient wiring of the input and output module of the SIMATIC S7-300 and ET 200M: the fully modular connection for fast and clear connection with the sensors and actuators in the field as well as the flexible connection for easy connection in the control cabinet.

 

Fully modular connection:

  • Fast and cost-efficient wiring
  • Reduction of wiring errors and test times
  • Clear control cabinet wiring
  • Supply voltage with digital and analog signals flexibly connectable at the front connector module or at the terminal module
  • Control of 24 V loads up to 4 A and up to 500 Hz possible
  • In case of defect, quick and easy replacement of each individual component thanks to modular system design

Flexible connection

  • Individual cores can be directly routed to each element in the control cabinet
  • Reduction of the wiring work through simple plugging in of the pre-assembled cable into the IO module
  • Higher currents possible through larger cross-section, lower voltage drop
  • Easy wiring: the number printed on the cores corresponds to the connection point at the front connector
  • Improved clarity of the control cabinet wiring through bundled single cores
  • Front connector available with screw connection as well as crimp connection
  • Selected screw connection versions available with UL/CSA-certified single cores

Cabling made easy: SIMATIC TOP connect

Error-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.
