December 17, 2012 - With Simatic ET 200MP, up to 30 I/O modules can be inserted into each station, each of which can comprise up to 32 channels. System features low parts variance and 35 mm wide front connector that is standardized for all modules. Thanks to standardized modular and diagnostic LEDs with direct 1:1 assignment of terminal and labeling, device retains clear structure, even when fully configured. Channel-specific diagnostics enable process errors to be identified unambiguously.

Distributed IO System with High Channel Density and Low Parts Variance


The new Simatic ET 200MP distributed IO system from Siemens Industry Automation Division is characterized by its modular and scalable station design. The IO modules are also able to be used for central automation tasks with the new Simatic S7-1500 controllers, offering the user simple handling and storage options. As many as 30 IO modules can be inserted into each station, each of which can comprise up to 32 channels. In addition to this high channel density, the user also benefits from low parts variance and a 35 mm wide front connector that is standardized for all modules. This considerably simplifies the ordering, installation, logistics and storage of spare parts. Thanks to standardized modular and diagnostic LEDs with a direct 1:1 assignment of terminal and labeling, the device retains a clear structure even when fully configured. With channel-specific diagnostics, process errors are able to be identified quickly and unambiguously.

The Simatic ET 200 MP is easy to assemble and to wire. In addition, the front connector's pre-engaged position facilitates convenient pre-wiring of the module. The expandable cable storage space also accommodates cables with large cross-sections or thick insulation. This keeps the IO station clear and creates a standardized appearance in the control cabinet. The integrated shielding concept for analog modules ensures a high level of robustness against electromagnetic interference, and the high-speed backplane bus of the Simatic ET 200MP is tailored to Profinet, thus supporting particularly fast response times.
