Discontinuation of the complete SIJECT range of products

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

We intend to discontinue the complete range of SIJECT products on Oct. 1, 2009.

We intend to discontinue the complete range of SIJECT products on Oct. 1, 2009. However, spare parts will still be delivered.

A direct successor product for SIJECT CI 16iP is not planned. As a replacement for the existing SIJECT CI 16iP solution, we recommend that you use SIMATIC-based hardware (e.g. MP377 based on WIN AC MP). Existing application solutions based on SIJECT (SIMATIC Step7) can be migrated to new hardware components at a low expenditure.

We recommend that you use "Simotion E510" as I/O module.

We recommend that you migrate to SIMATIC-based hardware for all current and future projects.

We recommend that you migrate to the version "MP377 based on WIN AC MP".
