Simatic Net CP 5711 is an external adapter that links commercially available PCs to Profibus via their on-board USB 2.0 port. The Simatic Net CP 343-1 ERPC expansion module connects Simatic-S7-300 controllers with databases via Industrial-Ethernet.
The Simatic Net CP 5711 communications processor supports all MPI and Profibus communications services up to a rate of 12 Megabit/second, for example DP Master/DP Slave, S7/S5 and PG/OP. The module has a 24 Volt power supply connection in case the USB interface of the PC cannot supply sufficient power.The Profibus and USB connectors can be locked mechanically so that cables are securely connected in a typical commissioning and servicing environment. The new communications processor can optionally be mounted on a DIN rail.
In addition to the connection with other automation systems, such as Simatic controllers, PCs or control systems, the CP allows for direct linking of databases, e.g. Oracle, MySQL, MS-SQL and DB2 using optional software packages.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
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...
