The application example shows how to program the requirements for SMS communication in the user program of the S7-1200 CPU. You can use the functionality fully or partially for your own requirements or customize it.
A SIMATIC CP 1242-7 (2) is connected to a SIMATIC S7-1200 controller 1211C (3) via the bus interface. A SIM card (5) is inserted in the GSM/GPRS modem and an ANT 794-4MR quad-band GSM/GPRS antenna (4) is used for the connection to the air interface. The power supply of all components is provided via a SIMATIC PM 1207 power module (1).
