This application can be realized even more effective and easier with the new SIMATIC S7-1200.
The respective application example with SIMATIC S7-1200 is available under entry-ID: 58862931 
Furthermore, many useful applications with SIMATIC S7-1200 are available under entry-ID: 35923253

Automation task
The operating and monitoring options of an automation plant should be expanded. The access to the automation system should occur via HTML clients (Web Browser). Thereby, the existing internal network or the Internet is used as communication medium. Access must be password protected.

Automation solution
The automation solution uses the expansion module CP 243-1 IT for the S7-200. The communication processor offers an integrated HTML server, an E-Mail Client as well as an FTP-Server. This enables access to the process information for the standard software (such as Web browser, E-Mail Clients and FTP Clients). The HTML Server enables access of simultaneously up to four connections (password protected) from the internal network or the Internet. Using the standard software saves purchasing and installation costs, for example for HTML Clients (Web Browser).

Startup Code
For the startup we offer you software examples with test code and test parameters as download. The software examples support you during the first steps and tests with your Micro Automation Sets. They enable quick testing of the hardware and software interfaces between the products described in the Micro Automation Sets.
