Enjoy the benefits of the S7-1500 controller on Industrial PCs together with high-level languages such as C++. The software controller operates absolutely independently of the Windows system, which ensures the controller’s continued operation during restart or even in the event of a Windows failure.
The SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller offers the advantages of the SIMATIC S7-1500 standard controller on Industrial PCs. For you, this means top performance and maximum user-friendliness.
The S7-1500 Software Controller runs on Siemens SIMATIC Industrial PCs completely independently of the operating system. It thus combines the advantages of SIMATIC controllers with those of PC-based automation without affecting the acknowledged high reliability and system availability of the SIMATIC controllers. The advantages of independence from the operating system are evident as soon as the controller is started.
The SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller is the only software controller with integrated safety functions. Thanks to Safety Integrated, an additional safety controller is not needed. There’s just one system for standard and fail-safe applications – which means substantial advantages in terms of engineering efficiency, safety, and user-friendliness.
Safety Integrated provides for the simple connection of PROFIsafe devices via PROFIBUS and PROFINET. With SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety Advanced and in the TIA Portal, users create their programs using the same engineering and operating concept for standard and fail-safe tasks. Data consistency functions automatically synchronize standard and fail-safe program components.
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) provides you with complete access to the entire digitalized automation, from digital planning to integrated engineering to transparent operation. The new version shortens your time-to-market thanks in part to simulation tools, increases the productivity of your plant through additional diagnostic and energy management functions, and offers you greater flexibility thanks to a connection to the management level.
TIA Portal offers flexible cloud solutions, virtual commissioning with a digital twin, coordinated collaboration in interdisciplinary teams, greater transparency, and integrated energy management.
The SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller enables you to implement control tasks on a SIMATIC IPC with Windows. The software controller shows its strengths especially when special automation functions have to be integrated using the C or C++ programming language, or when a direct connection of Windows software to the Software Controller is required.
As a fail-safe CPU, the SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller enables PC-based automation solutions even for safety-related control tasks on a SIMATIC IPC with the Windows operating system. The software controller shows its strengths especially when special automation functions have to be integrated using high-level languages or when a direct connection of Windows-based software to the Software Controller is required.
