The notices referring to your personal safety are highlighted in the manual by a safety alert symbol, notices referring only to property damage have no safety alert symbol. These notices shown below are graded according to the degree of danger. DANGER indicates that death or severe personal injury will result if proper precautions are not taken. WARNING indicates that death or severe personal injury may result if proper precautions are not taken. CAUTION with a safety alert symbol, indicates that minor personal injury can result if proper precautions are not taken. CAUTION without a safety alert symbol, indicates that property damage can result if proper precautions are not taken. NOTICE indicates that an unintended result or situation can occur if the relevant information is not taken into account. If more than one degree of danger is present, the warning notice representing the highest degree of danger will be used. A notice warning of injury to persons with a safety alert symbol may also include a warning relating to property damage. Qualified Personnel The product/system described in this documentation may be operated only by personnel qualified for the specific task in accordance with the relevant documentation, in particular its warning notices and safety instructions. Qualified personnel are those who, based on their training and experience, are capable of identifying risks and avoiding potential hazards when working with these products/systems.

Technical data subject to change Easy Book Manual, 11/2011, A5E02486774-04 3 Preface Welcome to the world of S7-1200, the latest in a line of the Siemens SIMATIC controllers. The SIMATIC S7-1200 compact controller is the modular, space-saving controller for small automation systems that require either simple or advanced functionality for logic, HMI and networking. The compact design, low cost, and powerful features make the S7-1200 a perfect solution for controlling small applications. As part of the SIMATIC commitment to "totally integrated automation" (TIA), the S7-1200 product family and the STEP 7 programming tool give you the flexibility you need to solve your automation needs. The S7-1200 helps to make the most challenging tasks easy! The SIMATIC S7-1200 controller solution, designed for the "compact" controller class, is comprised of the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller and SIMATIC HMI Basic panels that can both be programmed with SIMATIC STEP 7 engineering software. The ability to program both devices using the same engineering software significantly reduces development costs. The S7-1200 compact controller includes: Built-in PROFINET High-speed I/O capable of motion control, onboard analog inputs to minimize space requirements and the need for additional I/O, 2 pulse generators for pulse-width applications (Page 109), and up to 6 high-speed counters On-board I/O points built into the CPU modules provide from 6 to 14 input points and from 4 to 10 output points. Signal modules for DC, relay, or analog I/O expand the number of I/O points, and innovative signal boards snap onto the front of the CPU to provide additional I/O (Page 16). The SIMATIC HMI Basic panels were designed specifically for the S7-1200. This Easy Book provides an introduction to the S7-1200 PLC. The following pages offer an overview of the many features and capabilities of the devices. For additional information, refer to the S7-1200 programmable controller system manual. For information about UL and FM certification, CE labeling, C-Tick and other standards, refer to the Technical specifications (Page 233). Preface Easy Book 4 Manual, 11/2011, A5E02486774-04 This manual describes the following products: STEP 7 V11 Basic and Professional S7-1200 CPU firmware release V2.2 Documentation and information S7-1200 and STEP 7 provide a variety of documentation and other resources for finding the technical information that you require. The S7-1200 system manual provides specific information about the operation, programming and the specifications for the complete S7-1200 product family. In addition to the system manual, the S7-1200 Easy Book provides a more general overview to the capabilities of the S7-1200 family. Both the system manual and the Easy Book are available as electronic (PDF) and printed manuals. The electronic manuals can be downloaded from the customer support web site and can also be found on the companion disk that ships with every S7-1200 CPU. The online information system of STEP 7 provides immediate access to the conceptual information and specific instructions that describe the operation and functionality of the programming package and basic operation of SIMATIC CPUs. My Documentation Manager accesses the electronic (PDF) versions of the SIMATIC documentation set, including the system manual, the Easy Book and the information system of STEP 7. With My Documentation Manager, you can drag and drop topics from various documents to create your own custom manual. The customer support entry portal (http://support.automation.siemens.com) provides a link to My Documentation Manager under mySupport. The customer support web site also provides podcasts, FAQs, and other helpful documents for S7-1200 and STEP 7. The podcasts utilize short educational video presentations that focus on specific features or scenarios in order to demonstrate the interactions, convenience and efficiency provided by STEP 7. Visit the following web sites to access the collection of podcasts: STEP 7 Basic web page (http://www.automation.siemens.com/mcms/simatic-controller-software/en/step7/step7-basic/Pages/Default.aspx) STEP 7 Professional web page (http://www.automation.siemens.com/mcms/simatic-controller-software/en/step7/step7-professional/Pages/Default.aspx) You can also follow or join product discussions on the Service & Support technical forum (https://www.automation.siemens.com/WW/forum/guests/Conferences.aspx?Language=en&siteid=csius&treeLang=en&groupid=4000002&extranet=standard&viewreg=WW&nodeid0=34612486).
