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.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
