SIMATIC S7-1500: Easily adapted to suit your needs
The central processing units (CPUs) are the heart of the SIMATIC S7-1500. They execute the user program and network the controller with other automation components.
Three CPUs are available in the first delivery stage:
• CPU-1511-1 PN for small to medium-sized applications
• CPU-1513-1 PN for medium to large applications
• CPU-1516-3 PN/DP for exceptionally demanding requirements and additional communication tasks.
Features and customer benefits
Thanks to numerous innovations, the CPUs of the SIMATIC S7-1500 deliver the ultimate plus in productivity and efficiency. The hardware is extremely compact. Highly integrated, highly versatile components and modules save space in the cabinet and reduce the spare parts inventory overhead.
Shortest possible machine response times for enhanced productivity (control quality) Short cycle times for greater productivity Expansion of the program scope within the same cycle time
Display for commissioning and diagnostics
Shorter downtimes thanks to plain-text diagnostic information on central and decentralized modules Adaptation of customer-specific network settings without on-site programming Display can be unplugged and plugged during operation Password assignment for display operation via TIA Portal Long service life of 50,000 operating hours
PROFINET standard on every CPU
PN IRT (V2.2) ensures defined response times and highly precise machine behavior Additional Ethernet interface on high-end CPU for optimum integration in plant network Web server for simple display of service and diagnostic information
Innovative memory concept
Sufficient memory for any application, regardless of industry Flexible memory card concept for varying project sizes High storage capacity: up to 2 GB card for project data, archives, recipes and documents Optimized data modules for variably granular selection of values for remanent storage.
Optimized diagnostic concept
Efficient fault analysis using a uniform display concept for STEP 7, HMI, Web server, display on CPU Consistently integrated system diagnostics, no additional project planning overhead even for machine expansion No loss of system error messages, not even when CPU is in stop
