The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed a new communication processor for telecontrol applications based on Simatic S7-1200 controllers. Simatic CP 1243-1 DNP3 from the TeleControl Professional product range connects the controller to a control center, such as a process control system, via DNP3 (Distributed Network Protocol).
The new communication processor Simatic CP 1243-1 DNP3 connects Simatic S7-1200 controllers to a control center or process control system via DNP3 (Distributed Network Protocol) in telecontrol applications.
A typical use case for this is the transfer of measured values in widely spread outdoor areas to a central station, for example in sewage and water treatment plants, district heating networks and pump stations, as well as in oil and gas supply, energy distribution and transportation systems.
Simatic CP 1243-1 DNP3 transfers measured values, setpoint values and alarms to the control station cyclically or event-based. In the STEP 7 engineering tool, the user simply selects the data to be transferred from the Simatic S7-1200 CPU and specifies the required communication parameters. Communication with the control center is based on the established telecontrol protocol according to DNP3 specification 2 (2007/2009) including security mechanisms for secure data transfer via wide area networks. In addition to data transfer, the communication processor also has an e-mail function, for example to inform maintenance staff automatically about previously defined events, such as threshold values being exceeded.
Simatic CP 1243-1 DNP3 can buffer up to 64,000 values with time stamp in order to prevent data loss when a connection fails. When the connection is re-established, the buffered values are automatically transferred to the control center in the right chronological order. Comprehensive diagnostic options, locally via LEDs or in the STEP 7 engineering tool, offer the user fast and clear analysis of the station status. The communication processor is connected to the local communication network in the outdoor area via Ethernet interface. Appropriate transmission components, such as the Scalance M874 industrial router, are available for remote communication from the local network to the control station.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
