Configuration of Redundant I/O Modules in SIMATIC PCS 7
In this documentation the emphasis is placed on the application of redundant distributed I/O using ET 200M modules. Thereby, particularly the wiring options of the input/output modules as well as the individual configuration steps are explained.
The document focuses on the following points:
- Redundant I/O modules especially with channel granular functionality
- Setup, wiring and configuration of redundant ET 200M stations
- Using Marshalled Termination Assemblies (MTA) as an interface between the distributed I/O modules and the acutators or sensors
- Diagnostics options on a fault-tolerant system with redundant I/Os in case of an error
