SPS IPC Drives 2014, Hall 11
The SPS IPC Drives on November 25 in Nuremberg marked the launch of the Siemens IDS Roadshow, which hits the road this winter under the banner of "Extra Value Integrated". From Nuremberg, the truck will be setting out to visit Siemens' industrial customers across much of Europe over the coming months.
With this mobile exhibition, Siemens intends to demonstrate how Integrated Drive Solutions can enhance the efficiency, reliability and productivity of industrial applications and so achieve sustainable competitive advantages. The IDS Roadshow will be focusing on ways in which Integrated Drive Systems can add value for customers.
The truck will be equipped with a full complement of application-specific exhibits and live demos, all of which are designed to illustrate the tangible benefits to be gained from combining ideally matched drive and automation components for use in the most diverse applications and branches of industry.
Before the IDS Truck embarks on its European tour, visitors to the SPS IPC Drives will have the chance to preview the mobile exhibition at the Siemens booth in Hall 11 during the trade fair from 25 – 28 November in Nuremberg. The exhibits on show cover a vast spectrum of technologies, from intralogistics through conveying technology to pump, fan and compressor applications, as well as vertical mills and large-scale medium-voltage applications in the process industry. In each case, the exhibits graphically illustrate the benefits of a systematic three-pronged approach to integration – the core element of IDS. This entails a horizontal process of integration from the gear and coupling through the motor and converter along the energy flow, based on the comprehensive Siemens drive portfolio. The second level takes place vertically within the automation hierarchy through integration into the control architecture of industrial production processes. In this context, the mobile exhibition highlights integration of the drive train and its components into the TIA Portal Engineering Framework, and the potential this opens up for efficient engineering. The third integration level relates to the product life cycle, and involves the complete data technology integration of components into the relevant industrial planning, design and commissioning processes. In this field, the IDS Truck demonstrates how integrated software and comprehensive services can ensure not only faster commissioning and greater reliability, but also reduced maintenance costs.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
