New fail-safe CPUs for large controllers and distributed I/O

14.04.2010
The Siemens Industry Automation (IA) Division has developed two new fail-safe CPUs for applications in the manufacturing industry.

The Simatic CPU 414F-3 PN/DP for the Simatic S7-400 Controller has all the functions of the standard CPU 414-3 PN/DP and is suitable – when supplied with 2.8MB of RAM – for safety-related functions in the mid-performance range. The CPU has a 2-port Profinet and an MPI/Profibus DP master interface onboard, as well as an additional plug-in Profibus DP interface. The new interface module IM 154-8F PN/DP CPU for the ET 200pro distributed I/O with its high IP 65/67 degree of protection has functions and a quantity structure similar to those of the CPU 315F-2 PN/DP for Simatic S7-300, with a 512KB RAM, a combined MPI/Profibus DP and a 3-port Profinet interface.


The new Simatic CPU 414F-3 PN/DP and IM 154-8F PN/DP CPU support Profinet IO and CBA as well as Profibus DP, plus the new Profinet functions Shared Device, i-Device and Media Redundancy. Isochronous mode via Profinet and Profibus facilitates the fast and reliable exchange of data. Via the Ethernet the integrated web server enables information, such as status and diagnostics data or clock synchronization data, to be retrieved over the Intranet / Internet. Standard and safety programs can run simultaneously on the same CPU and the CPUs are programmed with the STEP 7 engineering system. The S7 Distributed Safety option package contains a library of TÜV-certified (German Technical Inspectorate) function blocks, including functions such as emergency stop or door monitoring. Both CPUs meet the high safety requirements according to the relevant standards EN 954-1 up to Cat. 4, IEC 62061 up to SIL 3, and EN ISO 13849-1 up to PL e.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
