If a fault-tolerant S5-155H PLC is used predominantly for switched I/Os,    

a new central controller where both S5-155H CPUs can be mounted in one rack 

is now available. The new central controller not only occupies less space,  

but is also considerably more economical for the configuration in question. 


The rack is made up of two sections with 10 and 11 slots respectively. If   

the two sections are each equipped with a CPU 948R, a power supply and a    

parallel link module, the left section still has 5 slots and the right      

section 6 slots available for modules.                                      


The components of the rack are available individually for spare parts pur-  

poses (see above for Catalog No.'s).                                        


Backup of the CPUs can be achieved by using 1 (simple backup) or 2 (redun-  

dant backup) lithium batteries per CPU. The lithium battery must be ordered 



The documentation of the new central controller is part of the current ver- 

sion of the S5-155H Manual.
