Siemens introduced the Simatic S5 Range in the early 1980’s. This automation system is based on Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC). This Simatic controller range offered solutions for highly complex systems. The S5 system represened a secure investment for industries opening a whole world of opportunities for industries demanding increased system functionality to automate their machines.

Even over 35 years the system is still used by many factories in the world. Simatic S5 is now considered obsolete and Siemens AG has dropped their support for it. Nevertheless many system integrators still have the ability to provide support for the platform.

Hardware

The Simatic S5 system is available in a wide range of chassis styles: 90U, 95U,100U,101U,115U, 135U, and 155U. This range of products offered users a choice of many CPU’s, power supplies, I/O, memory, communication -, interface – and function modules. The options of the range could be easily chosen by the users requirements and budget. The higher the chassis number, the more sophisticated the PLC becomes. There is also a range of redundant CPU’s providing ultra-high-reliability for special systems.

Software

Simatic S5 PLCs were usually programmed with Step 5. This program was used for programming, testing and commissioning the PLCs. The original Step 5 versions manufactured by Siemens ran on the CPM operating system. The versions introduced later ran on MS-DOS, and then versions of Windows through Windows XP were introduced. The final version of Step 5 was version 7.2. Due to the announce of obsolescence, no further development occurred by Siemens AG. However software exist by other manufacturers like PG95.
