Heavy-duty motion sensing switch for primary industries

23.07.2010
The new heavy-duty motion-sensing switch Sitrans WM100 of Siemens Industry Automation Division is used to detect the absence or presence of motion on rotating, reciprocating, or conveying equipment. The new device acts as early warning systems to avoid costly process interruptions and equipment breakdowns.

Located outside of the process, Sitrans WM100 accurately detects operating conditions without wear on the sensor. Sitrans WM100 can be mounted up to 100 mm (4”) from the ferrous target. The robust motion sensor provides the contacts to shutdown machinery whenever zero speed is detected. On belt, drag, and screw conveyors, or on bucket elevators, fans and pumps, the zero speed alarm option can warn instantly of equipment malfunctions.


The rugged Sitrans WM100 is impervious to dust, dirt, build-up, and moisture and is particularly suitable for primary industries such as mining, aggregate and cement plants. The non-contacting design of Sitrans WM100 eliminates the need for lubricating, cleaning and part replacement. So the new device reduces downtime and clean-up expenses associated with conveying equipment failures.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
