Easy installation and ease All SIMATIC S7-1200 hardware has built-in mounting clips that can be easily mounted on a standard 35 mm DIN rail. These built-in mounting clips can be snapped into an extended position to provide mounting holes when a backplane suspension installation is required. The SIMATIC S7-1200 hardware can be mounted vertically or horizontally. These features provide maximum flexibility for the user to install the PLC and make the SIMATIC S7-1200 ideal for a wide range of applications. Removable terminals All SIMATIC S7-1200 hardware is equipped with a detachable terminal strip. So you only need to make one wire connection, saving valuable time during the startup and commissioning phases of your project. In addition, it simplifies the replacement process of hardware components. Compact construction All SIMATIC S7-1200 hardware is designed to be compact in order to save space in the control cabinet. For example, the width of the CPU 1214C is only 110 mm, and the width of the CPU 1212C and CPU 1211C is only 90 mm. The compact size of the communication and signal modules makes this compact modular system much more space-saving, giving you maximum efficiency and flexibility during the installation process.
