The new products are single-phase devices with an attractive price/performance ratio for direct mounting on a wall. Screw installation means that a mounting rail is not necessary. The rugged, low-profile aluminum casing with IP20 degree of protection requires little space and permits mounting in different positions.
The single-phase Sitop PSU100D power supplies of the Siemens Industry Automation Division can be mounted in various positions on the wall, so a mounting rail is not required.
The devices meet all the basic requirements for a power supply and are particularly suitable for installation in apparatus and machines, as well as for use in automation solutions with no standard rail mounting. The wide temperature range from minus 10 to plus 70 degrees Celsius supports universal implementation even under harsh environmental conditions.
The six fan-free variants of the power supplies provide a regulated supply of 24 volts with rated output currents ranging from 2.1 to 6.25 amperes (A) and 12 volts with 3 or 8.33 A. Another 24 V version with an output current of 12 A uses a fan for cooling purposes. For higher outputs, two devices of the same type can be connected in parallel. Single-phase connection to almost any public and industrial supply system is possible thanks to the wide-range input of 85 to 264 V AC, radio interference class B as well as certification in accordance with CE and cULus (Underwriters Laboratories certification for Canada and the USA). The output voltage can be set between 22 and 28 V using potentiometers in the 24 V variants, and between 11 and 14 V in the 12 V variant. A green LED indicates the operating status "Output voltage OK." Electronic short-circuit, overload and overvoltage protection features ensure safety in the event of a fault.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
