SIMATIC Memory Card required for operation of the CPU.

The BusAdapter is not included in the scope of supply and must be ordered separately.


The 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN is the CPU for standard and fail-safe applications with medium requirements in terms of processing performance and response speed in discrete production technology. The 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN can be used as a PROFINET IO controller or as distributed intelligence (PROFINET I-Device). The integrated PROFINET IO IRT interface is designed as a 3-port switch so that a linear topology can be set up in the system via Port 1 and 2, and so that a programming device/PC or HMI device can also be connected via Port 3.

When used as an I-Device, the 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN enables distributed preprocessing of process data locally and only delivers the information actually required to the higher-level PLC. This has the following advantages:

  • Reduced load on the central PLC
  • Short response times to critical local signals
  • Less load on the bus system due to smaller data volumes
  • Faster set-up due to pretested units and parallel commissioning
  • Increased availability and flexibility due to autonomous machine units
  • Clear-cut configuration

The 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN operates completely independently of the central PLC. If it fails, the 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN simply continues running.

The bit-modular configuration of the ET 200SP I/O system, together with the 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN, enables functionally oriented station configuration.

In addition, the CPU offers comprehensive control functionalities via easy-to-configure blocks as well as the ability to connect drives via standardized PLCopen blocks.


The 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN is snapped directly onto the standard DIN rail and has the following:

  • A powerful processor:
    The CPU achieves command execution times as low as 48 ns per binary instruction.
  • Large work memory:
    300 KB for program, 1 MB for data.
  • SIMATIC Memory Cards as load memory;
    permitting additional functions such as firmware update, datalog and archives.
  • Bit-modular expandability for maximum flexibility;
    up to 64 I/O modules (I/O, technology, and communication modules) in any combination. Station width up to 1 m.
  • PROFINET IO IRT interface with 3 integrated switch ports:
    • Port 1 and 2 via BusAdapter (the 6ES7512-1SK01-0AB0 CPU 1512SP F-1 PN is supplied without a BusAdapter and can also be operated without one). The appropriate BusAdapter (BA 2xRJ45 or BA 2xFC) is to be ordered separately if needed).
    • Port 3 via integrated RJ45 socket.
  • Integrated communication functions:
    • PG/OP communication
    • Open IE communication (TCP, ISO-on-TCP and UDP)
    • OPC UA server/client (data access)
    • Web server
    • S7 communication
    • S7 routing
    • Data record routing
  • Maintenance-free data backup without battery
  • Diagnostics displays for errors (Error), operation (RUN/Stop), maintenance (MT), power supply (PWR) and one link LED per port
  • Optional labeling using light gray or yellow labeling strips. There is a choice of 2 materials:
    • Foil and roll with 500 strips, for thermal transfer roll printer
    • Paper (280 g/m2), DIN A4 sheets with 100 strips each, for laser printer
  • The ET 200SP CPU can be equipped with a reference ID label.
  • Different connection types of PROFINET by means of BusAdapter
    • Under standard ambient conditions, BA 2xRJ45 for connection via RJ45 plug
    • In the case of mechanical loading during operation and/or increased EMC requirements, BA 2xFC for direct connection of the PROFINET cable
  • Dark BaseUnit as first BaseUnit behind the ET200SP CPU when using an AC I/O module or an AI Energy Meter ST as the first I/O module
