The new modular SIMATIC S7-1200 controller is at the core of our new offering for simple but highly precise automation tasks. The SIMATIC S7-1200 controller is modular and compact, versatile, a secure investment, and is perfectly suited to a whole range of applications.

The S7-1200 CPUs with Safety Integrated handle both standard and safety-related tasks. A compact design with integrated IO, communi-cation interfaces that meet the highest industry requirements and a range of powerful integrated technological functions make this controller an integral part of a comprehensive automation solution.
The compact SIMATIC S7-1200 system consists of different CPU performance classes: CPU 1211C, CPU 1212C, CPU 1214C, CPU 1215C and CPU 1217C and two failsafe versions CPU 1214FC and CPU 1215FC. Each of these may be expanded according to the machine requirements. The S7-1200 CPUs can be expanded with up to three communication modules (CM) and eight signal modules (SM).
Signal modules and signal boards can be integrated in order to expand the digital or analog IOs without affecting the physical size of the controller.
Signal modules can be connected to the right side of the CPU to further expand the digital or analog IO capacity. CPU 1212C accepts two, CPU 1215C and CPU 1217C accept eight signal modules.

All SIMATIC S7-1200 CPUs can be equipped with up to three communication modules on the left side of the controller – this enables seamless serial communication and the use of various distributed IO devices.

In view of growing competition, Gämmerler had a strong need to remain competitive via process optimization, reliability and gentle handling of printed products, even at highest press speeds. In addition, a digitalization initiative also included developing a key differentiation via data-driven services offers.
Automation of the Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline, Azerbaijan
Automation of the Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline, Azerbaijan
The Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline project dates back to plans from the 1970’s. Baku’s growth was historically driven by the booming oil industry and required the import of drinking water from outside of the city. Before the construction of the pipeline, some 60 percent of the city’s households received water for only a few hours daily. After completion of the project, 75 percent of the two million Baku residents are now served around the clock with potable water, based on World Health Organization (WHO) standards. The 262-kilometer pipeline requires no pumping station, but uses the altitude differences between the Caucasian mountains and the capital to supply 432,000 m³/d to the Ceyranbatan water reservoir. To the people of Baku, the pipeline is “the most important project not only in 2010, but of the last 20 years.”
