Part of the SIMATIC process controller series, the S7-400 has been designed for system solutions in the fields of manufacturing and process automation. This process controller is ideal for data-intensive tasks that are especially typical for the process industry.
High processing speeds and deterministic response times ensure short machine cycle times on high-speed machines in the manufacturing industry.
THE MOST POWERFUL AUTOMATION SYSTEM WITHIN SIMATIC
Superb communication capability and integrated interfaces make the SIMATIC S7-400 process controller ideal for larger tasks such as the coordination of
entire systems. The graded range of CPUs enables scalable performance and the capacity for I/O
periphery is virtually unlimited. What’s more, process controller signal modules can be inserted and removed while the system is live (hot swapping), making it
very easy to expand the system or replace modules.
