Energy-efficient operation is a core requirement for users of flow machines. The new Sinamics G120P is particularly suitable for plant manufacturers that require an economical, energy-efficient and easy-to-use drive for pumps, fans and compressors. The inverter is available in the power range from 0.37 kW to 18.5 kW. Sinamics G120P comprises a Control Unit (CU), a Power Module (PM) and an operating unit, and can be optionally equipped with the Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP). The high IP55 degree of protection also enables the inverter to be operated under harsh ambient conditions, such as applications in building automation, the process industry or in the water management industry. It can also be used for the closed-loop speed control of fans and circulating pumps for heating and cooling systems, for booster pumps, or for pumps for level control.
To enable the economical operation of applications and equipment, the inverter possesses special functions for improving energy efficiency. The new inverter is characterized by a very low reactive power value. The integrated hibernation function enables energy-saving standby mode as a function of the setpoints. By automatically switching to line-fed operation at rated speed, a saving of up to three percent of the energy consumption can be achieved. The auto-ramping function enables currents to be limited and power peaks to be avoided. The inverter only has low effects on the power supply system and fulfills the requirements of the IEC/EN 61000-3-12 standard. No additional components such as line reactors are needed.The STARTER and SIZER tools familiar from the Sinamics range of drives are also available for this new inverter. The software additionally comprises a large number of application-specific technology functions and modules, such as a digital real-time clock, flying restart and PID controller. The I/O and fieldbus interfaces such as Modbus RTU, CANopen, USS and Profibus have been adapted to the special requirements. A USB interface has been integrated in the inverter for commissioning and diagnostics purposes.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
