- Simatic S7-1500 controller with expanded motion control functionality and Sinamics S120 drive control in one device – thus saving space
- Powerful for high-end applications, with integrated safety functionality for the controller and drive
- Extensive communication interfaces, technology I/Os, as well as cross-PLC synchronous operation for an easy implementation of modular machine concepts
- Proven engineering in the TIA Portal
Siemens is expanding its product portfolio of technology CPUs with the Simatic Drive Controller. The new controller combines a Simatic S7-1500 controller with motion control, technology and safety functionality with a Sinamics S120 drive control in one device, thus saving space. This makes it easy to implement requirements for powerful, compact and flexible automation solutions. The high performance of the new controller is particularly beneficial for applications with many axes where a multi-axis drive system is used – for example in packaging, printing and textile machines.
- Next generation of Simatic ET
200eco PN: New functions for modern machine concepts and requirements
- For use in redundant,
high-availability systems thanks to S2 redundancy
- High current-carrying capacity with
power supply via L-coded plug
- High-quality industrial enclosure with IP65/67
protection for outdoor use
Siemens has launched a new generation of machine-level block I/O
devices in the form of the Simatic ET 200eco PN. The new I/O family with
IP65/67 degree of protection includes five digital I/O devices as well as an IO-Link master device and offers users a whole range of new
functions for modern machine concepts and requirements. In their new industrial
metal enclosure, the devices are reliably protected from UV radiation and
harmful substances even under adverse environmental conditions, making it
possible to use the devices outside of factory buildings. The devices are
supplied with power via an L-coded plug, resulting in a considerably higher
current-carrying capacity. In turn, this enables longer cable routes in the
field, and the supply and connection of more energy-intensive components (such
as valve terminals) without the need for more supply cables.
- New version 8.0 facilitates integration of Simatic S7-1500 controller as well as mixed operation with Simatic S7-400 controller operation with the Simatic S7-400 controller
- Improved production and batch transparency with new MES reporting options
- Enhanced safety concept with new functions
- Lean Edition for micro breweries and craft brewers
Siemens is presenting a new version of the Braumat brewery process control system at the BrauBeviale in Nuremberg: The latest version 8.0 is based on the Simatic S7-1500 controller and has been optimized in the areas of reporting, weighing systems and security. Already installed Simatic S7-400 controllers can still be used, including in mixed operation. Existing Braumat installations can be expanded or modernized with Simatic S7-1500 controller. Production downtimes caused by new installations are thus avoided.
- Managing Board members’ individual
responsibility to have greater weight
- In addition to capital market
performance, sustainability targets included for first time
- Contractual maximum compensation
- New compensation system makes
Siemens a pioneer among DAX companies
to adjust the compensation system for its Managing Board members in order to
align the system more closely with the company’s sustainable development and
thus with the Vision 2020+ company strategy. By implementing the new system, Siemens
is taking on a pioneering role because the new approach already reflects the
draft version of the German Corporate Governance Code of May 9, 2019, and the
draft version of the act transposing the European Union’s Second Shareholder
Rights Directive into German law. In addition, the new concept not only
considers performance on the capital market, but also places emphasis on
targets for environmental protection, professional development of employees and
customer satisfaction. In the future, the broad-based MSCI World Industrials
Index – instead of a comparison with five main competitors – will be the yardstick
for the comparisons that determine the value of the stock awards. The new Managing
Board compensation system, which already applies as of fiscal 2020, will be
submitted to shareholders for endorsement at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on
February 5, 2020.
