SIMATIC S7-300 : the modular universal controller for the manufacturing industry
The SIMATIC S7-300 universal controller is specially designed for innovative system solutions in manufacturing, specifically the automotive and packaging industries.
This modular controller serves as an ideal universal automation system for centralized and decentralized configurations.
Safety technology and motion control can be integrated with standard automation into this universal controller.
A graded CPU range with a wide performance range is available for configuring the controller. The product range comprises 7 standard CPUs, 7 compact CPUs, 5 fail-safe CPUs and 3 technology CPUs. The CPUs are available from a width of only 40 mm SIMATIC S7-300 is within Totally Integrated Automation the most sold Controller.
SIMATIC S7-300 is the best-selling controller of the Totally Integrated Automation spectrum with a host of successful reference applications worldwide from the most varied industrial sectors, such as:
General machine construction
Special-purpose machine manufacturing
Standard mechanical equipment manufacture, OEMs
Food, beverages and tobacco industries
Thanks to their high processing speed, the CPUs enable short machine cycle times.
The S7-300's range of CPUs provides the right solution for every application, and customers only pay for the performance actually required for a specific task
The S7-300 can be set up in a modular configuration without the need for slot rules for I/O modules
There is a wide range of modules available both for the centralized and the distributed configuration with ET 200M.
Integral PROFINET interfaces enable simple networking of the controllers, and simple data exchange with the operations management level
The narrow module width results in a compact controller design or a small control cabinet.
The ability to integrate powerful CPUs with Industrial Ethernet/PROFINET interface, integrated technological functions, or fail-safe designs make additional investments unnecessary.
