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.

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
