Simatic WinCC V11 is based on the new central engineering framework Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) and is closely coordinated with the other engineering software products of the Simatic family, such as Simatic Step 7 V11 for Simatic controllers. This avoids multiple and incorrect entries in projects and guarantees consistent data at all times thanks to centralized data management in the TIA Portal. Simatic WinCC V11 offers users uniform engineering across all HMI device classes of the existing Basic Panels and new Comfort Panels, right up to Scada (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) process visualization.
Simatic WinCC V11 uses the operating philosophy of the TIA Portal and is characterized by intuitive and efficient HMI configuring (Human Machine Interface), even for complex tasks. The simple, uniform handling of different software products creates high efficiency, especially in conjunction with the Simatic Step 7 V11 engineering software for Simatic controllers. For all applications from panels to Scada, the same editors are used with identical representation of the functions. Data transfer between the individual operator panels is simple, using drag & drop, for example. The previously required synchronization is no longer necessary thanks to permanently consistent data management in the TIA Portal.
Simatic WinCC V11 is the logical further development of the HMI software from Siemens. In engineering, new functionalities include symbolic addressing on the Simatic S7-1200 controllers, an integrated library concept, and new library objects. The runtime functions have also been expanded. They now include F(x) Control for the new Comfort Panels and PC single-user systems, diverse communications drivers for third-party systems, and OPC UA (OPC Unified Architecture), as well as expansions in the case of recipes, such as loading data sets back into the engineering system.
The new Simatic WinCC V11 HMI software is available in different versions: WinCC Basic for the Simatic Basic Panels and WinCC Comfort for all Simatic Panels. WinCC Advanced in combination with WinCC Runtime Advanced additionally supports PC-based visualization at the machine level. The WinCC Professional version also offers extensive Scada functionality.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
