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: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
