RS EXPANDS SIEMENS OFFERING
23 October 2012
Distributor of electronics and maintenance products, RS Components, has expanded its stocked offer from Siemens across Europe by more than 10% to over 20,000 products.
The extended range includes key product families such as SITOP, LOGO!, S7-1200, SCALANCE and SIRIUS, all of which are available for next day delivery. It also includes the latest communications processor for the SIMATIC S7-1200 programmable logic controller (PLC), which RS is the first to stock.
The new CP 1242-7 communications processor is a key addition to the automation and control range from RS, the company’s primary technology focus in the maintenance sector. The module connects the S7-1200 PLC to the GSM/GPRS mobile wireless network, turning the controller into a telecontrol substation. This enables the centralised management of remote automation solutions in numerous applications across the industrial, engineering and utilities sectors, reducing maintenance and travel costs and negating high network infrastructure costs.
