New signal module SIMATIC TDC SM500 DI/DQ

The new signal module SM500 DI/DQ offers digital in- and outputs. 


The module provides

  • 16 digital inputs
  • 16 digital outputs
  • 2 LED for status display of SM500 DI/DQ
  • 6 LED can be individually controlled by means of function block BIQ8

Interface modules are to be used for connecting the module's in- and outputs to process values.


The new SM500 DI/DQ is not available in HW Config in D7-SYS V9.0 (and earlier versions).
Instead SM500 (6DD1640-0AH0) with only digital in- and outputs can be configured.

SM500 DI/DQ is spare part compatible to SM500 (6DD1640-0AH0) if no analog in- and outputs and encoder inputs are used.
