Process control system Simatic PCS 7 LAB for micro process engineering

20.10.2009
Ehrfeld Mikrotechnik BTS GmbH (EMB), a Bayer Technology Services GmbH company, and the Siemens Industry Automation Division jointly adapted the process control system Simatic PCS 7 LAB for use in micro process engineering, particularly for controlling the EMB modular micro reaction system.

The combination of modules of EMB’s micro reaction system creates a reaction plant performing chemical synthesis to develop solutions for the chemical, pharmaceutical and life science industries.

Specially tailored to laboratory requirements, the Simatic PCS 7 LAB monitors the processes of these plants; it controls, records and logs the relevant process variables such as pressure, temperature and flow rate. Thanks to an easy-to-use library, the engineering of the process control system becomes child’s play.

Technical information as well as parameter settings of the modules are stored as symbols in a library. To create an image of the plant, these symbols can be arranged and combined on a panel according to the plant configuration. Predefined functions and interfaces to external devices are already integrated.

"As a result of this collaboration, our customers benefit from the global-player expertise of Siemens: worldwide service and support, along with on-site user training", commented Dr. Olaf Stange, managing director of Ehrfeld Mikrotechnik BTS GmbH.

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...
