Smart migration, in SIMATIC S5 project
The ES connector provides positive benefits, when migration old S5 system to latest system.
If you need to migrate the system in a short period of time, you can complete many tasks beforehand and start work involving system outages.
ES-Connector does not need to touch old wiring, so you can delete unexpected troubles as much as possible. Engineers can check the program early in project.
If you find a decisive mistake, you can restore it to its original state in a short time. (it's Not good, but risk management)
Customers can resume production with only short facilities downtime. Constructor and customer will be able to share benefits.
In Customer's application, multiple control cabinets are dispersed by IM 308 interface(6ES5 308-3UA12).
Many input/output modules are operated in each cabinet through the ET100 module(6ES5 318-8MA11).
The customer requests "shortest production stop" to the engineer.
Engineers adopt ES100 Connecor.
They completed a lot of work in advance and made the downtime shortest.
