The modules DM-F Profisafe and DM-F Local fulfill the requirements of the IEC 61508/62061 and ISO 13849-1 standards for functional safety up to SIL 3/PL e. DM-F Local safely shuts down the motor in response to a local fail-safe signal from a sensor or controller, DM-F Profisafe receives the fail-safe signal via Profibus from a fail-safe controller. Simocode and the two new modules are configured using the Simocode ES software. For fail-safe applications with DM-F Profisafe, ready-to-use library blocks certified by the German Technical Inspectorate (TÜV) are available in the Step 7 option packages Distributed Safety and S7 F-Systems.
Simocode pro is a flexible and modular motor management system for motors in the low-voltage performance range. The system can be connected to higher-level automation systems via Profibus and covers the functions between the motor feeder and the automation system. Simocode pro combines all the necessary protection, monitoring and control functions for each motor feeder in a compact system. The motor management system offers complete, multi-functional electronic protection; safe shutdown of motors; integrated control functions; as well as detailed operation, service and diagnostics data. These functions are also provided autonomously by the automation system.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
