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.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
