The Simatic S7-1200 compact controller includes two signal modules for simple temperature measurement and control. The RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) and the TC (Thermocouple) signal modules each offer four inputs channels and come in 45 mm wide housings.
Together with the PID Function Blocks integrated in the Simatic Step 7 Basic engineering system, temperature control or other closed-loop control applications are easily configured. A PID commissioning control panel automatically computes the optimum tuning values. This control panel also offers manual control capabilities and a graphical trend view of the process.
