SIMATIC S7-400 Process Controller

Overview of the SIMATIC S7-400
The SIMATIC S7-400 is a programmable logic controller. Almost any automation task can be implemented with a suitable choice of S7-400 components.
S7-400 modules have a block design for swing-mounting in a rack. Expansion
racks are available to extend the system.
In this chapter, we show you the most important components with which you can
assemble an SIMATIC S7-400.
Features of the SIMATIC S7-400
The SIMATIC S7-400 programmable controller combines all the advantages of the previous system with those of a new system and new software. These are:
• A graded CPU platform
• Upwardly-compatible CPUs
• Enclosed modules of rugged design
• Convenient terminal system for the signal modules
• Compact modules with a high component density
• Optimum communication and networking facilities
• Convenient incorporation of operator interface systems
• Software parameter assignment for all modules
• Extensive choice of slots
• Operation without fans
• Multicomputing in the non-segmented rack

S7-400H fault tolerant PLC

Based on standard SIMATIC S7-400 modules, the S7-400H is a fault tolerant (redundant) PLC Image result for S7-400Hwhich drastically reduces the risk of production downtime. Its fault tolerant structure makes the S7-400H ideally suited to applications in which MTTR and downtimes need to be reduced or avoided where possible, e.g. for energy generation / distribution, the chemical industry, mining, transport, etc.
The fault tolerance is achieved by means of two parallel central controllers whose CPUs are connected by means of fiber optic conductors and which control the I/O through redundant PROFIBUS DP lines. Redundant I/O is presently under development. Once
this is available, it will be possible to compensate failing I/O in addition to failing CPU and PROFIBUS. In the event of an error, there is a bumpless transfer of control, i.e. the intact standby device takes over execution at the point of interruption, with no loss of information.

S7-400F/FH fail-safe PLC

The new SIMATIC S7-400F/FH is an addition to the range of SIMATIC S7 controllers.Image result for S7-400F/FH
It is a fail-safe controller based on the technology of the fault tolerant S7-400H.

The SIMATIC S7-400F/FH enters a safe state immediately when an error occurs or remains in a safe mode, thus guaranteeing a high level of safety for man, machine, the environment and the process. The S7-400F/FH has a TÜV approval (TÜV = German Technical Inspectorship) and fulfills all relevant standards.
The S7-400F/FH can also be used as a standard or fault tolerant controller. This means that the SIMATIC S7-400F/FH combines standard automation functions and safety-related technology in a single system.

There is a graded range of CPUs from the entry-level CPU right up to the high-performance CPU for configuring the controller. All CPUs control large quantity structures; several CPUs can work together in a multicomputing configuration to boost performance. Thanks to their high processing speed and deterministic response times, the CPUs enable short machine cycle times.

The different CPUs are distinguished by, for example, work memory, address range, number of connections and execution time. As well as the standard CPUs, there are also two failsafe and three fault-tolerant CPUs available.
