The new Scalance X- 200RNA (Redundant Network Access) network access points are designed for all applications and industries in which network connection with a high level of availability is required.
The Siemens Industry Automation Division offers two redundant solutions based on the Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) and High-availability Seamless Redundancy Protocol (HSR) in accordance with the IEC 62439-3 standard.
Alongside a version for parallel PRP networks, a version for ring HSR network topologies is now also available.
The Scalance X-200RNA access points for PRP networks connect up to two network segments or data terminals with no PRP functionality without delay over two parallel networks. In ring network topologies, the HSR technique permits seamless data transmission to be achieved for high-availability systems, for example in process automation applications. Scalance X204RNA devices with HSR functionality can also be used for simple redundant transition from HSR to PRP network structures.
Siemens offers the new access points as Scalance X204RNA in a plastic enclosure with four electric RJ45 ports as well as Scalance X204RNA EEC (Enhanced Environmental Conditions) in a metal enclosure with two electric ports and two electric/ optical combined ports for SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) transceivers and wide-range power supplies. A variety of information for network diagnostics is available via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).
With the Softnet-IE RNA software package, Siemens is also offering a solution capable of linking PCs at low cost into redundant parallel network topologies based on PRP without additional programming overheads. Using the Siemens software, a computer can establish the same seamless redundancy connection over two LAN networks as the Scalance X-200RNA network access points.
Typical areas of application for high-availability redundant connections can be found in the energy industry as well as in process automation, for example in the pharmaceutical or chemical industries.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
