The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) provides a uniform platform that obviates the need for individual interfaces for different engineering systems. This feature simplifies the job of developers working on automation and drive solutions.
Using Version 12, it is now possible to automate Siemens industrial drives in a rapid and efficient manner. For example, the error and system diagnostics have not only been fully integrated in the TIA Portal in a user-friendly way but has also been given a uniform appearance throughout the whole system.Furthermore, an additional security level offers protection against unauthorized changes. The TIA Portal V12 will be on the market in the near future.
A planning system for the automation of Sinamics G drives, which are typically found in pumps, elevators, or grinding systems, has also been integrated in the TIA Portal. The system diagnostics is also now fully integrated in the TIA Portal and can therefore be activated by a mere mouse-click, rather than having to be manually entered, as was previously the case. Furthermore, error messages are identical on all user interfaces, web servers, and controllers. The TIA Portal also offers error-proof functions for industrial drives.
The combination of the TIA Portal with the new controller generation adds even more functions to the engineering environment. With regard to data security, the system is even better protected against the piracy of machinery and unauthorized access. Last but not least, the programming languages are not only compatible with the previous version but are also more efficient.

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...
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...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
