Logic modules with graded text display for industry and building systems

11.03.2008
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed new Logo! basic devices.

The logic modules of the 0BA6 series are significantly more powerful than their predecessor models. With 200 function blocks, the memory capacity is fifty percent larger than before, and the analog inputs have been doubled to four.


The new devices have four high-speed counters up to five kilohertz and are equipped with Teleservice functions as well as ten menu languages. The new separate text display tailored to the logic modules deserves special mention. It can be connected direct to the basic device or installed up to ten meters away.

The new Logo! logic modules of the 0BA6 series are suitable for universal use in industry and in building systems. Diverse applications are possible, ranging from lighting controls, car washes and access controls, through aquarium systems, trash compactors, strapping machines, axle lubrication systems on trains, and feeding systems in cattle rearing, right up to pressure intensifiers and pumping stations.

The new text display has four lines with twelve characters each. Fifty different four-line messages can be configured, with expanded display options such as ticker text, bar graph or toggle parameters. Up to 32 characters per line can be stored for continuous ticker text, for example. The display on the external text display is independent of that on the internal text display. For example, messages relevant to operation can be displayed on the separate text display, and service-related information can be displayed in the control cabinet.

The new logic modules and the internal and external display are configured with the Logo! Soft Comfort V6 standard software. New function blocks for arithmetic and pulse width modulation expand the application options.

The Teleservice function simplifies device control and troubleshooting for service purposes. To upgrade existing systems with earlier Logo! generations, only the basic devices have to be renewed. The installed expansion and communication modules can be reused, as can already created programs.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
