Wider range of applications for compact
Siemens has expanded its product line of extremely compact Simatic ET 200AL IO systems, which have the high IP65/67 degree of protection, to include modules with the M12 connection system, higher output currents, and longer maximum distances between modules. Analog and digital actuators, and sensors, such as IO-Link devices, can be connected to the new M12 modules, which have up to 16 digital inputs. The high channel density reduces both the wiring effort and the space requirement for higher quantity structures. As the output current is now twice as high, actuators with a current consumption of up to 2 amperes can be connected. The maximum distance between two modules has now been increased from 10 to 15 meters, which now makes the Simatic ET 200AL IO system suitable for widely distributed IOs in large machines and systems. Groups of actuators can now be shutdown safely according to SIL2 via the ET 200AL outputs.
