It diagnoses and visualizes Ethernet networks, such as Industrial Ethernet and Profinet. Network activities are logged continually, and made available to users for evaluation and further processing. The software also helps users react quickly to faults and critical situations.
Sinema Server monitors the programmable controllers connected to the network, and infrastructure components, such as Industrial Ethernet switches and Industrial Wireless LAN access points. Auto Discovery automatically detects not only the controllers and infrastructure components but also their network-relevant parameters. The software then derives the network topology and statistics from this information.This is shown graphically on websites and, if desired, the user can supplement this with additional diagnostics screens. A user can access Sinema Server websites from any computer in the network. Access is protected by an HTTPS protocol, and can be made even more secure by password authentication. More than one user can call the same information at the same time, irrespective of their locations in the network.
The software also has an e-mail client function and an OPC server for forwarding network data and alarms to other systems. Sinema Server can be easily integrated into HMI (Human Machine Interface) and visualization systems, such as Simatic WinCC. This enables the user to monitor the communication in an automation system.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
