SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0

Plants in the process industries have to satisfy increasingly stringent demands in terms of flexibility, scalability, availability, safety and security while still offering maximum protection of investment for life cycles that may exceed 30 years. SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 provides the smart answer to these complex and competing demands.

New perspectives

More flexibility in process automation: expanded opportunities in the smallest of space

When we developed SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0, the new version of our proven process control system, we focused on the future-oriented opportunities of digitalization right through to field level. That’s why we expanded our system solution to include particularly powerful and compact hardware products that support PROFINET, the world-leading industrial Ethernet standard – and allow greater freedom in plant design and operation.

Highlights

Digitalization down to the field level

SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 paves the way for plant-wide digitalization. Thanks to total PROFINET support, our trail-blazing system not only bridges the gap of communication down to the field level, but also between now and the future. Or more precisely, towards digitalization.

From well-proven to future-proof: PROFINET

SIMATIC PCS 7 V9.0 is based on PROFINET. The world’s leading industrial Ethernet standard is playing a key role in the digital transformation of the process industries: PROFINET provides the prerequisites for powerful, plant-wide communication in real time, which is indispensable in the era of Big Data. Furthermore, it is key to the end-to-end diagnostics, monitoring and evaluation of process-relevant data. PROFINET also lets you create flexible and easily scalable network structures. There are further advantages: cost savings across the entire plant life cycle because your wiring costs are so much lower, and because freely scalable redundancy lets you set your plant availability individually.

From local to global: SIMATIC Compact Field Unit (CFU)

The integration of field devices is no longer a time-consuming exercise: the new SIMATIC CFU (Compact Field Unit) makes it easier than ever before. This compact hardware innovation initializes connected field devices automatically and integrates them into the process control system. What used to take 30 minutes now takes less than one. That’s how Plug & Produce works. The SIMATIC CFU combines a digital fieldbus with traditional I/Os and is suitable for direct field use, through to Ex-Zone 2. This substantially reduces the footprint of the entire I/O system: Traditional control panels are a thing of the past, and significant savings can be made on cables and terminal points, as well as in design and documentation costs. The device also reduces the risk of errors in operation, makes plant expansions or modernizations easier, and cuts the costs of the hardware FAT.
