Siemens LOGO! Logic Modules
Siemens LOGO! is an ideal logic controller for carrying out simple automation tasks. Its modular design makes it consistently flexible, with a wide range of expansion modules allowing individually configured designs for every need. The LOGO! System combines minimal wiring and simple DIN-rail installation with user-friendly programming. Small automation projects are easily implemented with space-saving LOGO! Logic Modules, allowing more room in the control cabinet, and easy functional expansion with such modules as time and auxiliary relays, time-delay switches and counters.
Siemens LOGO! 8
LOGO! 8 is the new generation of logic modules from Siemens, with a large, clear display, simplified handling and full Ethernet communication options, including to HMIs and Simatic S7 CPUs, with integrated Modbus TCP/IP protocols. GPS position detection and time synchronisation are also provided via a communication module. A database of tested sub-functions is available in LOGO!, which customers can use to create their own libraries and program macro functions. Data recording expands the module's functionality, and process values can be written directly into an Excel sheet with an Access Tool.
Siemens 6ED1052-1 is one of the new generation of LOGO! 8 Logic Modules, with a built-in display and a web server application to make handling as simple as possible. It has an IP20 protection rating for safe operation and is available with 12V DC, 24V AC/DC, 110V AC/DC and 230V AC/DC power supplies. More than 40 programmable functions are available in this logic module and programs may include up to 400 program blocks. The integral web server applications enable simple control and wireless monitoring via mobile networks, so that almost all application demands can be accommodated remotely on a PC, tablet or smartphone.
The Siemens 6ED1052-1 is programmed via the Siemens LOGO! Soft Comfort software that includes new "ready-to-use" functions such as a pulse generator, and various types of timer which in a typical PLC would have to be pre-programmed. Timer functions include an astro timer, annual timer, weekly timer, ON/OFF delay, stop watch, etc. Siemens LOGO! 8 also has free online training and sample programs.
All units are supplied with an Ethernet interface, a design footprint similar to the Siemens LOGO! 6 and compatible connections with previous versions. All LOGO! 8 basic modules have connectivity for remote text display via Ethernet and can network with a maximum of nine other LOGO! units.
A new 6 line display allows the creation of clear messages, with up to 16 characters per line and three selectable backlight colours. Reference of program parameters is also now available as a graphic view in the display.
