Compact switch connects logic module to Ethernet network
With the Logo! CSM 230 and CMS 12/24 compact switch modules from the Siemens Industry Automation Division, logic modules in the Logo! product range can be enhanced by additional Ethernet interfaces and connected flexibly to Ethernet networks.
The design of the new switch modules has been adapted perfectly to the Logo! series, enabling seamless and space-saving installation. The CSM 230 is suitable for operation at 110 and 230 volts AC, while the CSM 12/24 version operates at 12 and 24 volts DC. The power is supplied to both versions via terminal strip connections.
Logo! CMS 230 and Logo! CMS 12/24 each have four RJ45 ports. Three ports are located on the underside, and another port is set into the front panel for fast connection of programming and diagnostics devices. The unmanaged switches can either connect two logic modules to each other, or they can offer connections for additional components such as human machine interface devices, displays, or programming devices (PG). Like the Logo! logic modules, the new switch modules are suitable for a host of applications in different sectors, and can also be used in stand-alone mode for connecting up any Ethernet devices.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
