The new 3SE63 safety switch is based on contactless RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) transponder technology and offers a high level of protection against interference, tampering and bypassing. The rugged safety switch has a plastic enclosure providing a high degree of protection up to IP69K that is resistant to detergents and is designed for a long service life and for use under extreme environmental conditions.
It switches wear-free and covers a wide range of applications, including protective covers, flaps and doors that are difficult to adjust or that open and close frequently. The switch can be used in safety applications up to Performance Level e according to EN 13849-1 as well as SIL 3 according to IEC 61508/62061 and is suitable for connecting several devices in parallel.
The new 3SE63 safety switch satisfies the regulations for tamper-proof occupational safety protection through individual coding of the switch and actuator. The low-maintenance device is equipped with integrated monitoring functions for open-circuit, external voltage and cross-circuit, and has two short-circuit-proof 24 V DC safety outputs. Further comprehensive diagnostic functions, such as threshold indication, can be displayed on the status LEDs on the device or obtained from the diagnostics output for further processing. The new electronic safety switch has a larger switching displacement than mechanical switches and therefore a wider tolerance band. This means that the device can be mounted and adjusted quickly and easily.

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
