They all share the same characteristics of high processing performance in the smallest possible space, ruggedness in the face of the harshest mechanical and climatic conditions, high speed and excellent expansion capability.
This graded performance capability is the strength of the SIMATIC family.
And in the meantime, the SIMATIC PLC is also performing functions for which you had to use completely differently technology in the past. This makes it all much easier, more compatible and more economical for you.
Continuous innovation guarantees sustained market success for your machines and plants. And these innovation steps become easier if you can exploit previous investments for new machine generations too.
For this reason, we develop the SIMATIC Controllers continuously and compatibly always keeping your current user requirements in view.
Siemens has been developing and manufacturing programmable controllers for more than 30 years. This experience is also reflected in the SIMATIC S7. Well over a million of the latest generation of innovative controllers are already in use around the world.
