ET 200pro:

A recent Siemens article announced the availability of the EM 2 SSI electronic module, a part of the SIMATIC ET 200pro distributed I/O system. This module is engineered to ease the connection of SSI absolute encoders with RS-422 interfaces, providing two identical channels for this function. To maximize the use of this module, the CM SSI 2xM12 connection module (6ES7194-4CC00-0AA0) needs to be ordered separately.

The SIMATIC ET 200pro system is known for its robust and modular structure, offering an IP65/67 protection level. This system offers a broad selection of modules, allowing for diverse application possibilities directly on the machine, eliminating the need for a control cabinet. Its hot-swappable design facilitates easy module replacement without needing to shut down the system, guaranteeing uninterrupted operation.

The introduction of the EM 2 SSI expansion module allows users to integrate SSI absolute encoders for position recording, further boosting the system’s adaptability and functionality.
