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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

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...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

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...
