SIMATIC S7-1500 – the ultimate productivity and efficiency boost.
Through its many innovations, the new SIMATIC S7-1500 controller sets new standards for maximized productivity. This benefits small-series machines as well as complex installations that place high demands on speed and deterministics. The SIMATIC S7-1500 is seamlessly integrated in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) for maximum engineering efficiency.
The SIMATIC S7-1500 is modularly structured, with scalable functionality.
Each controller consists of:
* A central processing unit (CPU) for executing the user program
* One or more power supplies
* Signal modules as inputs/outputs
*...And technology and communication modules as...

Small but powerful – the mbNET.mini can be installed in locations where area is limited and provides sufficient connectivity to machines and systems via LAN or modem. The mbNET.mini guarantees a secure and reliable connection to machines and equipment over the mbCONNECT24 portal, mymbCONNECT24.hosted, as well as midi and maxi appliances. This device can connect to the portal server via a signal from two digital inputs or via a trigger from an Alarm-SMS/-Mail.
