Siemens PLC

The Siemens PLC is a high-performance system with a compact and space-saving design. This PLC CPU has 2 integrated analogue inputs, 6 integrated digital inputs and 4 integrated digital transistor outputs. It comes with integrated IO and communication interfaces that meet the highest industry requirements. It is also enabled with a range of powerful integrated technological functions that make this controller an integral part of a comprehensive automation solution. The controller is at the core of the new offering for simple but highly precise automation tasks. It is an ideal choice when it comes to performing automation tasks for a whole range of applications in the low to mid-performance range with maximum flexibility and efficiency. Due to standardized remote control protocols, you can connect the controller directly to your control centre without any programming effort.
Expandable with:
1 signal board (SB) or 1 communication board (CB) 2 signal modules (SM) Max. 3 communication modules (CM)

Features and Benefits

• Complex wiring of the safety function (for feedback and possible functional dependencies)
• Input Electrical rating of 300mA, 24VDC
• Operating temperature range is between -20°C and 60°C
