SIPLUS CMS – Stepping up your production


Get digital added value from mechanical condition data

The availability of machines and plants is a basic requirement for productivity. In order to minimize unplanned downtimes, it is necessary to detect the sources of error at an early stage. This is exactly where SIPLUS CMS Condition Monitoring Systems come in: they continuously monitor the condition of mechanical components of your machines – even throughout the entire plant. SIPLUS CMS therefore represents an important step toward the digital factory, where all the players including machines, products and people along the value chain will be networked. SIPLUS CMS working together with MindSphere – the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens – opens up completely new possibilities. The powerful cloud platform is designed for analyzing large quantities of data and enables machine parks all over the world to be monitored for service purposes in order to reduce their downtimes.

SIPLUS CMS in detail

Acting with foresight – increasing availability

SIPLUS CMS Condition Monitoring Systems create the prerequisites for the early detection of damage to machines and plants and the targeted planning of maintenance work – for a minimum of downtimes.


Transparency across all levels – with Totally Integrated Automation (TIA)

SIPLUS CMS records and analyzes mechanical variables from machines, integrates them into the automation world, and provides decision-making aids to maintenance staff, operators, and management. The open system architecture and the efficient interaction between all automation components (TIA) enable plant-wide condition monitoring of mechanical components across all levels. With this approach, control centers are able to closely monitor up-to-date status information. In the event of an anomaly, it is possible to quickly estimate how much longer secure operation is possible. Also anomalies in a plant can be compared directly to the condition of surrounding components to determine whether an increase in temperature is an indication of a bearing overheating.

Your benefits

SIPLUS CMS is available in three different versions – from compact and integrated to modular and powerful. Regardless of which version you choose, you benefit from many advantages. 


Compact and integrated

For permanent status monitoring of critical mechanical components. The recorded data is analyzed by the internal software of the CMS1200 and stored on the SM 1281 condition monitoring module. SIPLUS CMS1200 is fully integrated into the automation system via TIA Portal.



  • On-board software for parameter-based and frequency-selective analysis
  • Easy archiving of the data in the system’s own memory (800 MB)
  • Connection options: 4 IEPE vibration-acceleration sensors per SM 1281, 1 rotary speed sensor, up to seven SM 1281 modules per S7-1200 CPU



  • Parameter-based or frequency-selective data analysis
  • Analysis algorithms in the SM 1281 condition monitoring module
  • Trend analysis
  • Limit monitoring of frequency bands
  • Storing of raw data in different utilization categories, active transmission to a PC for data analysis
  • Online data streaming of vibration data to the CMS X-Tools analysis software



  • Early detection of mechanical damage
  • Planned maintenance instead of spontaneous repair
  • No additional software needed for diagnosis and visualization
  • Easy data archiving
  • Analyses down to the smallest detail, e.g. for detecting tooth wear in a gear unit
  • Monitoring of variable-speed drives
