The new Basic Panels from the Simatic HMI (Human Machine Interface) product range have basic functions for operator control and monitoring, for example, an integrated alarm system, recipe management and trend curve functionality.
The Simatic HMI Basic Panels have a high degree of protection (IP65) which makes them suitable for use in tough industrial environments.
The first delivery stage comprises a large 15" device that offers a TFT touch display with 256 colors. A 10" version also has keys with tactile feedback. Depending on the version, integrated Profinet/Ethernet, Profibus or MPI/PPI interfaces are available for communication.
The Simatic HMI Basic Panels are mounting-compatible with the Simatic HMI touch devices already available and, like these, are also configured with the fully scalable Simatic WinCC flexible 2008 engineering software.
This offers the user the option of switching at any time to devices in other performance classes or with other display sizes. The range is further extended by devices with small displays.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
