Siemens has expanded its portfolio of rugged network components with the Ruggedcom RMC8388 - a cost effective compact time converter designed to operate in harsh environments with widely varying climatic and environmental conditions. Withstanding extreme temperature from -40 up to +85 degrees Celsius, vibration and shock the device offers high reliability for Electric Power applications. By enabling cost effective time synchronization Ruggedcom RMC8388 reduces both capital expenditures and maintenance costs.
The Ruggedcom RMC8388 is available in multiple variants and can convert between the modern Precision Time Protocol IEEE 1588v2 and the legacy IRIG-B (Inter-range instrumentation group) time codes or PPS (pulse per second). The RMC8388 enables the usage of legacy IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Devices) within modern Ethernet networks without the need for maintaining a separate network for time synchronization.
The compact form factor makes the Ruggedcom RMC8388 ideal within modern Ethernet based networks while it uses only limited additional space in existing cabinets and defers capital expenditures by enabling cost effective time sync to existing non IEEE 1588 capable IEDs. Besides extending the service life of legacy IEDs, the new Ruggedcom RMC8388 also enables the connection of legacy time sources to a modern Ethernet based network to enable upgrading in phases without the need for upgrading everything at once.
Ruggedcom RMC8388 also reduces high maintenance costs on legacy coax cabling by replacing them with standard Ethernet cabling for both communications and timing purposes, all the way to the switchyard cabinets.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
