The SIEMENS CPU S7 300/400 has been proving its worth as the centerpiece of the programmable logic controller (PLC) in many Bäumer machines since 1999. Even today, this rugged component continues to do an invaluable, reliable job within countless plants.

The service life of control devices is, however, limited: If one of these CPUs malfunctions, it is – of course – still possible to replace it, but this obviously involves waiting for one to be delivered and incurs yet more expense.

Spare parts availability secured in the long term

Plant-wide networking possible

Automation of your production

It's time to get your machine control ready for Industry 4.0!

Upgrade to plant-wide interconnectivity

The follow-ups to the S7 300/400 have been on the market for around ten years now, and the SIEMENS S7-1200 and S7-1500 CPUs have also proven themselves time and again in this time.

Kitted out with processors from a newer generation, as well as the ability to establish Ethernet and Profinet connections, a replacement is clearly already an upgrade in itself. It offers the opportunity to set up plant-wide networks and automate your entire production processes, which is a crucial step toward Industry 4.0-style manufacturing.

The SIEMENS TIA S7-1200 and S7-1500 PLCs represent the latest industry standard, meaning spare parts are guaranteed to be available in the long term.

And in the case of conversions, the entire PLC unit – including the CPU and input/output modules – is replaced in full.

Start planning your conversion now!

Now’s the time to start thinking about upgrading your plant control system. By scheduling your conversion during a vacation closedown or typically quieter period, you will be safeguarding yourself against the inconvenience of a complete system failure caused by a defective component.
