One main function is controlled chemical dosing which is used when disinfectant has to be added, for example. The series of devices matches the MFC system not only in terms of design and dimensions but also in terms of the range of functions. The two types of device are based on the same software and can therefore be combined and communicate with each other via a CAN bus.
Potable water works, industrial processes such as in the food industry, cooling water circuits, and the treatment of boiler feed water are possible areas of use. The SFC devices can also be combined with the Depolox Pool and PCS Plus measuring and control units, which are specially designed for swimming-pool water treatment.
Depending on the application, the SFC system can be fitted with different measuring modules. As in the case of the MFC system, it is possible to choose from several such modules: the 'Depolox 5' three-electrode sensor from Wallace&Tiernan for measuring free chlorine, chlorine dioxide, ozone and potassium permanganate; combination electrodes for measuring the pH value and redox potential; conductivity electrodes; fluoride electrodes. Membrane sensors for measuring free chlorine, total chlorine, chlorine dioxide and ozone are also available. In addition, sensors with a standardized current or voltage output (e.g. 4 to 20 mA) can be connected. This makes it possible to measure any particular parameter. The measuring range and the unit of measurement can be adjusted as required.
The specific plug-in card which belongs to each sensor makes the SFC system into a distinct measuring system for the respective sensor. The card is used to implement measuring-range limits and pre-settings and makes basic parameterization of the device much easier. Thanks to the possible types of control which are integrated into the SFC system, Siemens Water Technologies enables the special forms of control needed in water treatment applications. Like the MFC system, the single-parameter SFC device can be used for fixed-value control, ratio control or a combined form of control, depending on the plug-in card selected. Without a sensor, the SFC performs the role of a ratio controller, with which chemicals can be dosed in proportion to an input variable. The process controller version (SFC PC) performs functions such as parameter optimization during operation as well as combined feedforward control with a reference variable.
The SFC series supersedes the proven Wallace&Tiernan MFA plug-in measuring amplifier, the Wallace&Tiernan PCU controller and the SCU ratio controller. It performs all the previous functions and, compared to the preceding models, is easier to use and provides more possibilities of data link-up. What is also new are CAN-bus communication of the Wallace&Tiernan devices with each other and an SD memory-card slot. The ChemWeb server as well as the OPC Data Access V 2.0 server can be connected via the optional RS 485 interface, which also enables use of the CMS 3.0 visualization software.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
