New Components for Controlling and Monitoring Plants via Remote Access

24.02.2011
New modules and UMTS routers extend the range of solutions offered by the Siemens Division Industry Automation in the field of remote access.

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.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

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...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

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...
