Communications processor

Tuesday, 31 December, 2002 | Supplied by:

Siemens Energy & Automation has introduced a communications processor for its Simatic S7-200 micro PLC that allows easy connections to ethernet networks.

The Simatic CP 243-1 extension module is linked to 10/100 Mbps ethernet with RJ45 connectors and to a 24 V power supply by a terminal strip. The module can be installed on a DIN rail or surface mounted for integration of the S7-200 into existing ethernet networks.

The CP 243-1 provides seamless high-speed data exchange between S7-200 CPUs or to higher level automation systems, such as Simatic PLCs or HMI products, as well as to PC-based systems via an OPC interface.

Combined with other S7-200 expansion modules, the CP 243-1 can also serve as an intelligent gateway between ethernet and a field-level Profibus network or AS-interface device network.
