The new open product is especially sturdy, powerful and highly modular. Simatic S7-mEC integrates control, HMI and PC functionality in one device. The new embedded controller is configured and commissioned the same way as a standard Simatic-S7-300 controller.
Simatic S7-mEC comes equipped with the latest PC technology, for example, with an Intel Core Duo processor. The new device features the same design, sturdiness and modularity as a S7-300 controller and can be expanded via standard S7-300 I/Os and PC interfaces.Like all other Simatic controllers, the new embedded controller can also be configured and programmed using Simatic Step 7. Furthermore, the ODK (Open Development Kit) interface enables the standard Step 7 program code to be expanded, for example, with C/C++ code. Users are also able to install their own PC applications or functionalities for HMI, such as WinCC flexible Runtime. The HMI functions are configured using Simatic WinCC flexible.

Scientists from Hannover develop a novel lightweight production process

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
