Delivery Release for SIMATIC S7-1500 System Power Supplies

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The new SIMATIC S7-1500 system power supply modules are herewith released for delivery.


The System Power Supply modules (PS) of the SIMATIC S7-1500 product spectrum (67856445) boost the power on the backplane bus. They are required when the power supplied by the CPU or IM 155-5 to the backplane bus is no longer sufficient to feed all the connected modules, or if more than one power segment in the rack of the S7-1500 or ET 200MP (in the case of a distributed configuration) is to be implemented.  
The System Power Supply modules are screwed directly onto the S7-1500 mounting rail and connected to the adjacent module via a U-connector. For System Power Supply modules with 24 V DC input a corresponding load power supply (PM = Power Module) is recommended (67856268).


  • Different modules types available for different input voltages
  • Different output powers available depending on the module type
  • Power holdup
  • Galvanic isolation to the bus

The System Power Supply Modules support the following functions:

  • Firmware update
  • Identification and Maintenance data I&M0 to I&M3
  • Parameter change in RUN mode
  • Diagnostic messages
  • Diagnostic alarms


TIA Selection Tool:

A new version of the SIMATIC Selection Tool will become available featuring faster and simpler configuration, plus the generation of a parts list. As of March 2013 this tool will be available for free download from the following link:
