All-round protection with IP65: HMI devices

16.04.2008
The Siemens Division Industry Automation has added a series of rugged HMI devices with all-round IP65 protection to the Simatic HMI (Human Machine Interface) range of products.
Featuring a slim and elegant industrial design, the devices are designed for mounting on a support bracket or on a supporting foot. The new series is available in three versions: Simatic Flat Panel Monitor Pro is a rugged industrial display monitor which can be installed at a distance of up to thirty meters away from the PC; Simatic Thin Client Pro is especially suitable as a second workstation for terminal and web-client applications; Simatic Multi Panel 377 Pro, a high-performance device that can be expanded when necessary, is intended for use with the Simatic WinAC MP 2007 control software.

All the new HMI devices have all-round protection and a brilliant 15-inch touch display. Fitted with a flexible interface, they can be mounted on different support-bracket or supporting foot systems.

They can be used independently of control cabinets or machines and therefore enable ergonomic operator control even in difficult places in a plant or on a production line. The devices can be connected to the support bracket or floor-mounted column from above or below as desired. A feature of the new HMI devices is their low weight – they are therefore very easy to install.

The rear can be easily removed in order to install new cables or replace a memory card, for example. This makes the new devices especially easy to maintain, even after they have been installed.

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...
