Siemens New Gen Controller Increases Productivity, Flexibility and Cost Optimization

For the first time in ten years, Siemens has introduced a new generation of controllers.

The SIMATIC S7-1200 G2 controllers are part of the SIMATIC controller family. With this new generation, Siemens is expanding its offerings and demonstrating how these latest innovations will make automation and programming easier for customers.

The new controllers help bridge the worlds of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT). The controllers' high communication performance and efficient data processing increase production output. By connecting these controllers to IT systems, it is also possible to use advanced data analysis, for example in the cloud.

The new SIMATIC S7-1200 G2 controllers are part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, allowing customers to benefit from the standardized engineering approach in the TIA Portal. The new generation enables customers to address major challenges, such as productivity, flexibility and cost optimization.

New Features for SIMATIC S7-1200 G2

Machine builders are challenged with increasing customer demands for more customized and flexible solutions. This is driving the need for technological advances, such as new motion control functionalities, performance improvements and machine safety solutions. Siemens delivers full scalability across all SIMATIC controllers and offers the right controller for every customer application.

SIMATIC S7-1200 G2 controllers are setting new performance standards for versatile and high-precision automation applications. The new range of controllers combines integrated motion control functionalities with space-saving and flexible machine safety solutions.

For example, SIMATIC S7-1200 G2 controllers make it possible for machine builders to control multiple coordinated axes and simple kinematics. Customers experience increased performance capabilities thanks to improved processing power, dedicated communication performance and more memory, as well as Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality with in-app access to diagnostic, operational, and device data. Plain text diagnostic information about the entire programmable logic controller (PLC) station reduces machine downtime and gives users quick access to data.
