LOGO! 8 mini controllers, manufactured by Siemens, are a comprehensively designed family of logic modules for use in industrial automation and control applications, ideally suited for smaller scale control tasks.
Easy to install, with minimal wiring and user-friendly programming, it’s simple to implement small automation projects using the LOGO! Soft Comfort Software. These intelligent logic modules can help you save on control cabinet space, helping save on outlay.
Interfaces such as Ethernet, USB or via the Cloud (with the 8.3 software update), are used for connecting to the IoT, for programming, data transmission, predictive maintenance and power monitoring. Using expansion modules from the LOGO! family means existing installations can be retrofitted, helping to expand your application whenever you need.
Advanced IoT Connectivity with LOGO! 8.3 Soft Comfort Software
LOGO! 8.3 software helps future proof your installations, opening-up the world of IoT. This capable engineering software offers not only familiar operation in single mode but also easy operation in network mode. Automatic configuration and the ability to open as many as 3 programs at once, and you can drag and drop to easily transfer signals from one program to another.
A wizard helps to set up a cloud connection in LOGO! Soft Comfort in just a few steps, and the web server can be configured by the user to enable control of automation components via mobile devices.

Ethernet made easy
Integrated Ethernet interface for the entire product family means the logic modules communicate with each other and the SIMATIC S7 systems via Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP for LOGO! 8.1 or higher, allows modules to act as either a client or a server. The CSM add-on module Ethernet 4-port switch, expands the interfaces local Ethernet networks still further.
Integrated web server
The integrated web server found in the LOGO! basic units is ideal for monitoring and control via WLAN and the Internet, it’s password-protected and suitable for all conventional browsers. The web server is easy to configure with no HTML programming knowledge required. LOGO! 8 can also be operated using a smartphone, tablet, or a PC. The self-configured display has the option of designing web pages for mobile devices using your own pictures, logos and icons. Data can be stored on a micro-SD card and projects can be further processed in HTML if required.
LOGO! Basic Modules
The perfect choice as a fast, uncomplicated and space-saving solution for basic control tasks. LOGO! has long been a constant as an intelligent logic module for small automation projects.
LOGO! Expansion Modules
A wide range of expansion modules allows the user to set up a flexible LOGO! Configuration with a maximum of 24 digital inputs, 20 digital outputs, 8 analogue inputs and 8 analogue outputs possible.
The mini power supply devices designed like LOGO! modules offer great performance in the smallest space: The excellent efficiency over the complete load range and the low performance loss during idle times guarantee efficient operation.
LOGO! Inrush Current Limiter
As a ballast unit for SITOP power supplies, SITOP inrush current limiters reliably reduce currents like those caused by the rectifier circuit on the input side with capacitor charging, as in the case of pulse-controlled power supplies.
The LOGO! family offers many communication options. In LOGO! 8, the connection to the communication modules is done via Ethernet. This means the entire address range of the inputs/outputs remains available for digital and analogue signals.
LOGO! TDE and SIMATIC Basic Panels offer simple operator control and monitoring possibilities. The external text display TDE provides an affordable interface for machine operators and with their sophisticated HMI basic functions, SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels are the ideal entry-level series for simple HMI applications.
