Software and hardware used

TIA Portal software

Totally integrated automation is a development environment that combines PLC (programming), HMI(visualisation) and startdrive(drive technology).

CPU S7-1200

The new controller, which has been developed as a successor to the S7-200, is characterised by slightly weaker parameters than the S7-300 family. Several CPU versions present in the family allow selection according to project requirements.

Factory IO

Typical machine scenarios can be run in Factory IO, and the virtual factory connects to the SIM PLC simulator (or the actual PLC. Programming of the controller is possible in the programming environment (depending on the PLC family), and insight into its operation is available during the online connection
