Automation controller protected from condensation, aggressive environments and corrosive gasses.

The Siemens Industry Automation division has developed a new controller for extreme environmental conditions. Siplus S7-1500 has the same performance characteristics as the newest standard controller family Simatic S7-1500 for mid-level and high-end machine and plant automation.

Other features of the new controller Siplus S7-1500 include reliable operation under extreme medial loads such as humidity, corrosive vapors, salts or dusts. In an extended temperature range, the Siplus S7-1500 functions reliably during cold starts as well as in continual operation. This was designed to save energy costs for the user because no additional air conditioning is necessary.

Robust, enhanced modules make it possible to safely use the system everywhere from offshore plants and harsh industrial environments up to applications at extreme altitudes. The new device is protected against condensation and corrosive gasses, as well as aggressive and saline atmospheres.

The Siplus S7-1500 controller has the same performance and efficiency characteristics as the Simatic S7-1500, the new standard controller generation from Siemens. Its characteristic features include outstanding system performance and a host of functions integrated as standard, including motion control, security for maximum possible plant security and safety for safety applications that are easy to implement.
