The two new modules TIM 3V-IE DNP3 and TIM 4R-IE DNP3 enable controllers of the Simatic S7-300 and S7 400 series to be controlled and monitored over different communication networks, such as the mobile network. The modules support the open DNP3 protocol, for communication with the control center.
Extensive diagnostics functions are available to users, including logging the sent and received message frames. It is also possible to program S7 controllers that are connected to the modules remotely over an IP-based network, which reduces the number of costly on-site service visits.
The new UMTS routers Scalance M873 and M875 have been designed for remote access solutions in classical teleservice and telecontrol applications. Communications between the control center and the routers take place over the UMTS mobile network. They are also suitable for more complex applications, such as video transmissions. Scalance M875 also features a VPN function (Virtual Private Network) and a firewall. Due to the integrated security functions, Scalance M875 supports the protected connection of distributed automation cells to a control center over the mobile network. Scalance M875 can also be implemented in the context of Siemens Remote Services. This comprehensive service allows companies to commission Siemens with the monitoring, control and maintenance of distant plants and machines via remote access.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
