Advanced Controllers

Includes the S7-1500, S-7300, and S-7400 Controllers. The S71500 is TIA Portal based and the newest addition to the Advanced Controller family.


SIEMENS S7-1500 Family

The SIMATIC S7-1500 will be the replacement product for both the S7300 and S7400 family. Using the SIMATIC S7-1500 controller gives you top performance and built-in viability into the future. You can turn the most sophisticated machine designs into reality thanks to the modular structure of the controller, which provides reliable assistance as you work your way through the digital transformation. Depending on the CPU that is chosen you can use standard or fail-safe I/O and even get versions that support motion technology functions.

SIEMENS S7-300 Family

This product was introduced in the 1990’s and has been used in many applications worldwide. It is still a current product that is schedule to start the maturity process in 2023. Product will be available for a time period of 10 years after maturity. If want your application to be future proof? Then you should look at the advantages and new possibilities of the SIMATIC S7-1500 and the engineering with TIA Portal.

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. S7-400 and the innovated S7-410 product line will stay the hardware backbone of the PCS 7 control system. Product availability is planned beyond 2030. For standard and failsafe applications within factory automation the new S7-1500 controller generation takes full advantage of all TIA Portal features.

Distributed Controllers

Distributed Controllers are used for machines with a distributed architecture and for machines with limited space available. They combine the advantages of a SIMATIC S7-1500 with the design of a SIMATIC ET200SP. With SIMATIC ET200pro, a CPU module with S7-1500 technology is available as a modular space-saving solution for tough environmental conditions near the machine.



The distributed controllers ET 200 CPUs combine compactness and flexibility. Especially in the medium performance range for machines with distributed intelligence or series machines with limited space, the distributed controllers are the perfect solution for standard and fail-safe applications.

Software Controllers

SIEMENS Software Controller

Us the functionality of the SIMATIC S7-1500 controller on Siemens industrial PC’s in combination with high-level languages such as C++. The software controller works completely independent of the operating system, which means it also continues to run during restart or even when the operating system fails. It is available in both standard and fail-safe versions.

SIMATIC Drive Controller

SIEMENS Drive Controller

The new SIMATIC Drive Controller saves space by combining a controller with motion control and a drive control in a single device. Integrated technology I/O’s and powerful communications interfaces make sophisticated machine designs possible. It combines SIMATIC S7-1500 controller and a SINAMICS S120 drive system. It supports fail-safe and standard I/O
