Siemens new compact and modular Simatic S7-1212 FC controller performs standard and safety-related automation tasks in a single device.
Using Siemens TIA Portal V14 engineering software and firmware V4.2, safety-related devices, including Siemens Sinamics drives, are easily networked with Profinet and Profisafe, reducing hardware and wiring requirements.
The S7-1212 FC controller has 100 KB integrated program/data memory and a 2 MB load memory. It features integrated standard I/O, eight digital inputs, six digital outputs and two analog inputs.
The controller is expandable with up to three communication modules, two signal modules and one signal board.
