Siemens is extending its Sidoor range with a gearless drive system for elevator doors. The Sidoor ATE500E model introduces EC (electronically commutated) technology to the Sidoor lineup for the first time. Its new gearless EC direct drive requires less maintenance and exhibits less wear than DC (direct current) drives.
The result: a longer service life, improved energy performance and reduced operating costs. Sidoor ATE500E delivers short door opening times and rapid acceleration ramps of up to 3,000 millimeters per second squared (mm/s²). The gearless drive system from Siemens also offers a high dynamic response, excellent ride quality and high holding torque coupled with low noise emission and motor heating.
Thanks to "single-button commissioning", Sidoor ATE500E can be set up quickly and easily too – with an automatic training journey to complete the process. This ensures incorrect settings are avoided. The motor in the drive system, which is compatible with doors weighing up to 280 kilograms, can even be used in different orientations.
The gearless drive system provides a high level of safety thanks to an integral sensor unit in the motor that monitors operating data. Sidoor ATE500E also features a temperature sensor that records the heat generation of the drive so that the motor can be operated close to the thermal load limit, for example, and still be protected against overloading. Another sensor, this time a high-resolution magnetic unit, records information related to the angle of rotation. The position of the door is measured via an incremental position encoder simulation. The Sidoor FOC (Field Oriented Control) control concept optimizes the motor speed in a closed-loop procedure, moreover, to ensure high control quality independent of weight. An intelligent diagnostics unit additionally carries out an automated function test prior to every journey, which improves efficiency. The proven circuit logic provides additional protection for the electronic systems in the event of exposure to external forces.
Sidoor ATE500E is uncomplicated to install; indeed Siemens has taken care to simplify the process of retrofitting old systems with an innovative screwless enclosure concept. The optional Sidoor software kit simplifies application and offers detailed parameterization and diagnostics. The new gearless drive system is versatile enough to be used with a range of different communication interfaces, for example with a CAN or relay module.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
