Siemens has released the new modular SIMATIC S7-mEC embedded controller with preinstalled runtime visualisation software.
The SIMATIC S7-mEC is a turnkey automation solution, integrating both HMI and software controller.
As no software has to be installed during commissioning, the device is easy to configure and program.
By sharing a platform for HMI and PC applications, the exchange of data is speeded up considerably.
The S7-mEC is based on the S7-300 architecture and therefore I/O can be directly connected via the standard S7-300 modules in the central rack or remotely via PROFINET or PROFIBUS.
The PC module (EM PC) simplifies the interaction between automation technology and the PC world.
By means of standard media, PLC data can be used directly for further evaluations of production data in an office application.
On-board interfaces, such as the graphics interface or DVI‑I, now enable a monitor to be connected in addition to operator panels or thin-client solutions.
Further interfaces such as slots for SD/MMC and Compact Flash cards, USB for the
connection of printer, mouse or keyboard, and serial interfaces for point-to-point
communication are also available on the EM PC module.
