Extended range of automation products for water and wastewater installations

30.05.2008
A free library for applications in the water and wastewater industry now exists for the Simatic PCS 7 process control system. The Simatic Water Library of the Siemens Industry Automation Division supplements the PCS 7 engineering system with over 100 proven and re-usable modules for automation and operator control.

The library also contains matching project documents – ranging from specifications to test procedures. Also new is the free "Consultant DVD" with an efficient toolbox that effectively supports engineering offices, system integrators and plant operators in all phases of planning for water management installations. Specifications of work and services, for example, can thus be drawn up with remarkably little effort.

The Simatic Water Library with standardized modules and typical applications facilitates the engineering and commissioning of automation solutions in the water industry. As its appearance and user philosophy have been aligned to PCS 7, the familiarization process for the user is only minimal. The library contains automation functions and graphic user windows, i.e. the so-called faceplates required by the water industry.

Examples of additional functions provided by the library are multiple-maintenance concepts with local panels and controllers. This makes it possible to set up hierarchical plant structures very efficiently, with a main control center, subordinate control centers and various stations. In addition, communication modules for simplified integration of standard and highly available Simatic S7 400 controllers are provided, supplemented with product modules for Simocode motor management as well as the Sinamics G120 and Micromaster MM440 drives.

The Water Library is also suitable for smaller plants where the 'Simatic WinCC' Scada system and S7 300 controllers are used. On the basis of S7 300 controllers, subsystems with local control such as dosing stations, blower stations or cogeneration plants can easily be integrated in the higher-level process control system.

The Consultant DVD contains the information needed for all relevant electrical/electronic product groups in the planning process. This information is provided in the form of around 1400 bid-invitation text modules, application manuals, product information documents (such as catalogs, data sheets and brochures), notes on design and configuration tools, including project files of the most important thereof, e.g. Simaris design. Also featured are typical applications, along with automation and power distribution configurations. Products and systems from the areas of drive technologies, electrical installation technology, low-voltage controls and distribution, process instrumentation and analytics as well as communication, process automation and power supply are also taken into account.

In addition, numerous specimen applications for medium-sized and large-scale sewage plants, as well as for a medium-sized waterworks, are likewise available. Examples for waterworks, pump stations and reverse-osmosis installations are in preparation. With the Consultant DVD, planners can expect savings of up to 20 % in terms of costs and time.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
