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: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
