New space saving analog modules for the SIMATIC S7-1200 compact controller give users a range of capabilities for many applications. The high density, four- and eight-channel modules offer twice the number of channels per module in the same standard expansion module case size. This allows for easy expansion of existing or new designs with little or no change to the enclosure size and mounting footprint.
The SM 1231 series eight-channel analog input module supports industry standard unipolar 0-10VDC, 0-5VDC, 0-20mA and bi-polar +/- 5VDC, +/-2.5VDC input signals. All channels support 12 data bits plus sign and perform with a fast input response times of 625uSec per channel.
The SM 1232 series four-channel analog output module supports both 0-10VDC and 0-20mA output signals. All channels support higher resolution 14 data bits plus sign providing enough precision to help users solve even their most complex automation tasks.
Both new analog modules can be DIN-rail or panel mounted and easily connect to the right-side backplane of an S7-1200 CPU. . All S7-1200 hardware modules are certified with industry standard agency approvals including CE, cUL US, Factory Mutual Class 1 Div 2, ATEX for Hazardous Locations, and C-Tick.
Siemens SIMATIC S7-1200 compact controller is a worldwide accepted control and monitoring solution for both simple and complex applications including discrete machine control, regulatory process control, remote telemetry, SCADA and motion control.
