200V - VIPA's Economic Medium Range Modular Programmable Logic Controller System
VIPA 200V is a highly compact and modular expandable system. The system is designed for centralized and decentralized automation tasks. With a central extension of a maximum of 32 modules directly to the CPU and up to 126 fieldbus slave modules with a further maximum of 32 modules per fieldbus slave module, 200V is highly flexible. The module size allows use in almost any automation environment. The assembly is extremely simple. The bus connector for communication between the modules and the CPU can be easily inserted into a 35 mm standard rail, and then 200V modules are snapped on – finished. Included with the supply of the signal and function modules are front connectors and labeling strips.
Performance and Application
200V is designed for centralized and decentralized automation tasks in the manufacturing and process industry up to medium power range.
200V is programmed with VIPA WinPLC7 / VIPA SPEED7 Studio or with Siemens STEP7 in LAD, FBD and STL.
The CPUs in 200V have the work and load memory already integrated. Depending on the CPU version, users can choose from 48 kByte to 128 kByte work memory. In addition, MMC cards for storing program and data are supported.
For the connection of sensors and actuators, a variety of signaling modules are available for acquiring digital and analog signals in and out of the process. For positioning tasks and path measurement various SSI, servo and stepper modules can be chosen. The counter modules in 200V also support complex and fast counting tasks in the manufacturing and process industry to calculate the comparative features and the connection of sensors, such as photoelectric barriers.
For the connection of serial devices, e.g. scanner or printer, and for the integration of systems from other manufacturers, the system offers a full complement of serial communication processors. Ethernet communication processors incorporates 200V horizontally and vertically into the existing network structures, and thus make all relevant data connected to the MES and ERP systems available. 200V possesses fieldbus master and slave modules with various fieldbus protocols and can therefore function, manufacturer-independent, as master control as well as subordinate fieldbus slave unit.
