AC500 PLC High Availability - AC500 HA offers hot standby redundancy
The high availability of AC500 HA prevents downtime caused by either human error or cabling/hardware/software malfunction. Redundant CPUs and the redundant I/O communication reduce the risk of total system failure, thus enhancing system availability.
AC500-S PLC for safe communication between safety CPUs using PROFINET/PROFIsafe over 5G
Each system needs to exchange its control and safety data via a central control system or distributed control system in an efficient and reliable manner so as to maintain productivity and minimize downtime.

To create smart buildings, AC500 can either be the central processing unit for the complete building or the link between the Building Automation Management System and the central, floor or room level functions.
The experience and comfort of a building is just there, before anyone will even notice, the smart buildings have acted to avoid any discomfort. To create smart buildings, AC500 can either be the central processing unit for the complete building or the link between the Building Automation Management System and the central, floor or room level functions.
Replacing S500 I/O modules while the system is running: The hot swap terminal units TU516-H, TU532-H and TU542-H allow no-load hot swapping of S500 I/O modules during operation. When replacing a S500 I/O module the other modules in the cluster continue operating.
