Delivery Release for ET 200SP High Speed digital modules with enhanced module functions and firmware V2.0 for HS analog modules

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
A digital high speed input and a digital high speed output module, both with 3 operating modes, for the scalable SIMATIC ET 200SP I/O system have been released for delivery effective 04/2015. In addition, a functional expansion with firmware V2.0 is also available for the high speed analog modules.

SIMATIC ET 200SP High Speed analog modules

As from firmware version V2.0 both channels of the high speed analog modules can work in the operating mode “Oversampling“.

Enhanced Module Functions


·     Counter mode (CNT)


o  Description
The 8-channel digital input module DI 8x24V DC High Speed works in the “Counter“ mode as 4-channel pulse counter input with 32-Bit and a maximum counting frequency of 10kHz. The remaining 4 channels can be used as gate start / gate stop inputs or as direction input. The connection of 24V DC incremental encoders with A and B signal is not supported by the module. The technology modules TM Count 1x24V and TM TM Timer DIDQ 10x24V are available for this purpose.


o  Parameters / Functions
Start value
Upper and lower counting limit
Response at the counting limits (stop or continue counting)
Selection of the edge used for counting (rising / falling edge)
Count direction (up / down)
2 Comparison values
A control interface is available to adjust count, start and comparison values as well as the counting limits.


o  Diagnostics
Supply voltage
Short-circuit to M


·     Operating mode DQ with valve control


o  Description
In the DQ mode the high speed DQ module works with a special valve control function. After an adjustable holding time (= activation time of the valve) the output automatically switches to a pulse-width modulated output signal with adjustable frequency and pulse-to-pause duty cycle. This enables the output to be run with a lower holding current, resulting in a lower power loss in the switchboard and the valve.


o  Parameters / Functions
Holding time 0 s to 10s
Pulse-to-pause ratio 0.0% to 100.0%
Duty cycle OFF / 0.20 ms to 59.73 ms (“OFF” is normal DQ operation)
Substitute value characteristics


o  Diagnostics
Supply voltage


·     Operating mode pulse width modulation (PWM)


o  Description
Control of the four
24V DC/2A digital outputs with a pulse-to-pause duty cycle in the range 0.0% to 100.0% (16-Bit analog value) for outputting a pulse width modulated output signal.



1.      Cycle duration T; frequency of the pulse width modulation: f = 1/T

2.      Pulse duration (pulse-to-pause ratio)



o  Parameters / Functions
Frequency: 17 Hz to 5 kHz
Substitute value in the case of CPU stop (0.0% to 100.0%)


o  Diagnostics
Supply voltage
Short-circuit to M


·     Oversampling
(inputs and outputs of the High Speed digital and analog modules)


o  Definition
n-fold oversampling describes the recording or outputting of n data in equidistant cycles, whereby n cycles correspond to one PROFINET bus cycle. To be able to use the operating mode Oversampling you require isochronous mode.


o  Data capturing in the “Oversampling“ mode
- The module captures n values in equidistant cycles and transmits them in chronological sequence to the controller in one data package.

The user thus gets a continuous data stream of digital or analog values captured in absolutely equidistant intervals for evaluation in his controller.


o  Data output in the “Oversampling“ mode
The controller transmits
n values in a data package to the module. The module outputs these n values in equidistant intervals and in chronological sequence.

The user can thus ensure the output of digital or analog values at a exactly determined point of time – also within the set PROFINET bus clock rate.


o  Application areas
Oversampling always makes sense if one requires the recording or outputting of data with a very high temporal resolution without, however, wanting to use a very short PROFINET bus cycle and thus faster CPU cycles.


o  Application examples
Data capturing by means of oversampling is often used in quality supervising measurements, e.g. when recording pressure gradients during the manufacture of blow-molded PET bottles.
When digital or analog values are output via oversampling the data can be controlled more finely graduated than the PROFINET bus cycle would normally allow. The output data can thus be controlled more exactly along the actual position of the machine. This can be used for the exact length-dependent control of a control valve.





The TIA-Selection Tool for easy configuration is available for download:





Configuration of the interface modules


The modules can be configured with STEP 7 version V5.5 SP4 and higher and TIA-Portal version V13 SP1 and higher. The new high speed I/O modules can be used with all ET 200SP interface modules. The functions isochronous mode and oversampling are presently (as per 04.2015) only supported when inserted behind an IM155‑6PN HF interface module and cannot be used via GSDML configuration.


With all other configuration tools than STEP 7 the configuration of the SIMATIC ET 200SP station can be done by means of GSD or GSDML files.
