Extended diagnostics and communications for motor starters

24.02.2011
The Siemens Division Industry Automation has expanded the Simatic ET 200S High Feature motor starter with various communications and diagnostics functions.

With the new Profienergy communications functions, the motor starters can be integrated into the energy management system of a plant to enable, for example, connected loads to be switched off during production breaks to save energy.


Using the acyclic data services of the newly integrated DP V1 profile for Profibus and Profinet as well as expanded statistics and diagnostics data, the Simatic ET 200S High Feature motor starter provides a wide range of additional information for device, plant and process monitoring. This means that process deviations can be detected more easily and installation, initial commissioning and maintenance is made simpler.

The Siemens Division Industry Automation has expanded the Simatic ET 200S High Feature motor starter with various communications and diagnostics functions. With the new Profienergy communications functions, the motor starters can be integrated into the energy management system of a plant to enable, for example, connected loads to be switched off during production breaks to save energy.

Three logbooks have now been integrated into the Simatic ET 200S High Feature motor starter for events such as device faults or tripping of the motor starter, and time-stamped events. The plant operator can read these from the motor starter as required and use them to monitor equipment or analyze processes, as well as using the device and plant status information. The data record "Device diagnostics" is also available for the purpose of device and plant monitoring, which contains information regarding the configuration of the motor starter as well as its current device and communications status. The "Installation and maintenance" functions are also new. These can be used to store information about the modules used, and engineering data can also be stored, such as a location identifier in the motor starter, so that faults can be rectified quickly and easily, hardware changes can be detected, or the plant configuration can be checked.

The Simatic ET 200S High Feature motor starter is suitable for switching and protecting any three-phase loads up to 7.5 kilowatts. The motor starter Simatic ET 200S for the modular distributed I/O system in IP20 degree of protection, is used wherever outages of machines and plants can generate high costs: for example with drives in conveyor systems, pumps in the water industry or the ancillary drives of machine tools. The Simatic ET 200S High Feature motor starter is ideally suited to drive solutions in which several motors or digital/analog sensors and actuators can be addressed from a distributed control cabinet or control box.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

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...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

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...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
