Overview •	Modular, scalable, and universally usable system in IP20 level of protection •	The system solution for a variety of automation applications in discrete automation •	Highest performance with excellent usability •	Configurable exclusively in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal with STEP 7 Professional V12 or higher Performance •	Increase in performance through o	Faster command execution o	Language extensions o	New data types  o	Faster backplane bus  o	Optimized code generation •	Powerful communication: o	PROFINET IO (2-port switch) as standard interface; from CPU 1515-2 PN, one or more additional 	integrated PROFINET interfaces, e.g. for network separation o	Expandable with communication modules for bus systems and point-to-point connection Integrated technology •	Motion Control integrated without additional modules: o	Standardized blocks (PLCopen) for connection of analog and PROFIdrive-capable drives o	The Motion Control functionality supports speed-controlled and positioning axes as well as external 	encoders o	Position controlled precise gearing between axes •	Comprehensive trace functions for all CPU tags for real-time diagnosis and sporadic error detection; for effective commissioning and quick optimization of drives and controls •	Comprehensive control functionalities: e.g. easily configurable blocks for automatic optimization of the control parameters for optimum control quality  •	Additional functions through available technology modules: e.g. high-speed counting, position detection, or measurement functions for signals up to 1 MHz Safety Integrated Protection of personnel and machinery – within the framework of an integrated complete system •	Failsafe SIMATIC S7-1500F controllers for processing standard and safety programs on the same controller. Generation of the failsafe and standard user program is carried out in the TIA Portal with the same editors; this enables failsafe data to be evaluated like standard data in the standard user program, for example. Due to this integration the system benefits and the comprehensive functionality of SIMATIC are also available for failsafe applications. Security Integrated •	Password-based know-how protection against unauthorized reading and modification of program blocks •	Copy protection for greater protection against unauthorized copying of program blocks: With copy protection, individual blocks on the SIMATIC memory card can be tied to its serial number so that the block can only be run if the configured memory card is inserted into the CPU. •	Rights concept with four different authorization levels: Different access rights can be assigned to various user groups.
