The PIA Selector online configurator makes it easy to select and arrange correctly the order numbers of devices. It provides efficient access at all times to device data, no matter whether it is required for detailed engineering, plant operation or modernization work.
The integration of the Comos engineering software solution with the Simatic PCS 7 process control system helps to organize engineering activities along just one electronic workflow throughout all phases of a project. An interface ensures consistent, bidirectional exchange of information between Comos 10.0 and PCS 7. Every change in Comos is transferred directly to the control logic of the PCS 7, and vice versa. This allows serial engineering processes to be run in parallel to an even greater extent, starting with the development process, and continuing with the engineering of the mechanical and electrical systems right through to the automation level. The user has all the data and documents available at all times, not only from the engineering phase of a plant but also from the actual plant, and can use them for maintenance and service purposes, including the scheduling of shutdowns.
The user connects to the web via a link implemented in Comos 10.0, which takes him to the homepage of the PIA Selector. The engineering data stored in Comos is automatically transferred to the PIA Selector. The measured data can be specified even further in the configurator in order to narrow down the selection of the field devices. The user is shown a list of devices to match his inputs and he selects the one he requires accordingly. The data of the selected product is transferred automatically from the configuration tool to Comos 10.0, where it remains available throughout the entire life cycle of a plant. This enables the data to be used in the next steps of the engineering, for example to create a bill of materials (BOM) and the order list.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
