Siemens’ industrial computers meet the industry’s highest operating performance standards. Resulting from our decades of continuous improvement of industrial computers, our integrated SIMATIC Industrial IPC product range delivers superior performance, provides higher availability, and is backed by Siemens’ world-class service and support.
Open, rugged and cost-effective: the software PLC
When using a PC-based controller, users rely on the ruggedness and open architecture of industrial PCs, coupled with the powerful SIMATIC WinAC software PLC. A SIMATIC S7 is integrated into the PC as a software PLC and the PC-based controller is configured and programmed with STEP 7 in exactly the same way as a normal S7 controller. All the automation components are integrated into a single industrial PC, resulting in a complete and cost-effective solution.
SIMATIC S7-mEC is a modular embedded controller system in S7-300 design with the current embedded PC processor technology and operating system.
It comprises the base model EC31 CPU and optionally available expansion modules EM (PC or PCI-104 interfaces). The modular embedded controller combines the advantages of the tried and trusted modular SIMATIC S7 controller with cutting-edge
PC technology in one new device.
An easy, cost-effective entry into the world of PC-based automation
Our embedded bundles for PC-based Automation are based on the robust and fanless Industrial PCs Microbox PC SIMATIC IPC427C or Panel PC SIMATIC HMI IPC477C and the SIMATIC S7-mEC modular embedded Controller. They come ready-to-run, preinstalled and preconfigured with the SIMATIC WinAC RTX (F) software controller and/or the SIMATIC WinCC/WinCC flexible visualization software. Software packages that include SIMATIC WinAC RTX (F), SIMATIC WinCC and WinCC flexible are available for all SIMATIC IPCs. By ordering the automation software with the Industrial PC, you can make substantial savings.
