Press Release Summary:
Part of Siemens Simatic PCS 7 process control system, Simatic S7-410 is coated for operation in toxic atmospheres and features extended ambient temperature range up to 70Â°C. Unit is available in standard version as well as fault-tolerant and fail-safe versions. Device meets all requirements of process industry, including chemical, glass, metal, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, solar, and oil and gas industries as well as water and wastewater sectors.
Original Press Release:
Siemens Enhances Controller Portfolio for Process Industry
• Simatic S7-410 controller further developed
• Long-term investment protection for companies
• Fault-tolerant and scalable controllers for pharmaceuticals, chemical, metal and food & beverage industries
• Temperature range of Simatic S7-410 controller extended up to 70 °C
Siemens continues to develop its controller portfolio to handle sophisticated tasks in the process industry. Users of the flexibly configurable controllers, which offer a high level of security and availability, will therefore benefit from long-term investment protection. The first step was to give the Simatic S7-410 the standard coating for operation in toxic atmospheres and to further increase the fault tolerance of the redundant system. Siemens has also extended the ambient temperature range up to 70 degrees Celsius, which allows users to deploy the powerful Simatic PCS 7 controller in harsh environments, such as in oil and gas applications. The next steps will be, for example, to further expand the Profinet functionality in order to increase fault tolerance and availability.
The Simatic S7-410 controller is an integral part of the Siemens Simatic PCS 7 process control system and currently the most powerful controller in the process industry. This is particularly obvious in the integrated scaling feature: it is now possible to apply a uniform hardware and software environment for very small systems of 100 I/Os up to large-scale plants of more than 100,000 inputs/outputs.
The Simatic S7-410 controller is available in a standard version as well as in faulttolerant and fail-safe versions. The device therefore meets all the requirements of the process industry, including the chemical, glass, metal, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, solar, oil & gas industries as well as the water and wastewater sectors.
