Before Learn S7-1200 – Some Information
Siemens Simatic S7-1200 controller provides the flexibility and power to control a wide variety of applications. The compact design, flexible configuration, and powerful instruction set combine to make the S7-1200 a perfect solution for replacing for S7-200. If you want to start learning a Siemens PLC, we recommend starting with S7-1200 for your applications.
A CPU S7 1200 includes:
- Power connector (AC or DC)
- Input/ Output/ Analog Input
- Memory card slot
- Status LEDs (START/STOP, MAINT, ERROR)
- Profinet connector
Each CPU has the Hight-Speed Counter (HSC) up to 100kHz (onboard) or 200kHz (Signal board) and Pluses Output up to 1MHz (PTO & PWM). Detail for each CPU you can read on manual or see on TIA Portal programming software.

Programming Software To Learn Simatic S7 1200
Total Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) is programming software for PLC (S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300, S7-400), Human Machine Interface (HMI), and configure SINAMICS Startdrive. TIA Portal provides a user-friendly environment to develop controller logic, configure HMI visualization, and set up network communication. The latest version is V17, we will use V15.1 update 5 for all projects on this tutorial. You need a Windows (7/10/Server) with 64bits to installing V15.1 (or V16). With S7-PLCSIM you can create a virtual controller for simulating S7 controllers and makes simulation of functions. In this tutorial, we will bring to you:
