  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
This entry provides you with information about the function classes of the interface modules and IO modules of the distributed IO systems ET 200SP and ET 200MP.

The interface modules and the IO modules of the ET 200MP and ET 200SP are available in the following function classes.

  • Basic (BA): The Basic module is designed for basic requirements.
  • Standard (ST): The Standard module is designed for standard requirements and is used by most customers.
  • High Feature (HF): The High Feature module includes advanced functions.
  • High Speed (HS):The High Speed module is optimized for high speed processing.

  • All ET 200SP IO modules can be used on all ET 200SP interface modules.
  • Exception:
    • PROFIsafe modules cannot be used on a Basic interface module.
    • The technology module TM Timer DIDQ 10x24V cannot be used on the DP interface module.
  • You should note that function restrictions of the interface modules might restrict the IO module functions. For example:
    HF and HS IO modules support the clock-synchronized mode. The Basic, Standard and DP interface modules do no support the clock-synchronized mode.
