Siemens has developed extremely compact I/O (input/output) modules for AS-Interface with widths of just 17.5 and 22.5 millimeters. The new AS-i SlimLine compact modules are just half the width of the predecessor devices, and they save space in the control cabinet and in distributed control boxes.
They possess new, practice-oriented functions, such as device connectors and switchable sensor supply, that surpass the previous functional scope. The 17.5 mm variants are currently the slimmest AS-i modules on the market.
The new series of AS-i SlimLine compact modules in degree of protection IP20 encompasses digital I/O modules as well as ASIsafe modules with safe inputs. It replaces the previous S22.5 and S45 SlimLine modules. The new AS-i SlimLine compact modules supplement the product range of AS-i field modules and they are suitable for initial installation, servicing, or whenever a change or expansion is made to your plant.
The new AS-i SlimLine compact modules from Siemens are available with 4DI/4DO in 22.5-mm design, and with 4DI or 2F-DI in the especially slim 17.5 mm enclosure. The digital outputs are available as solid-state and relay outputs. Sensors and actuators, as well as the AS-Interface bus cable, are connected by means of removable screw terminals or push-in spring-type terminals.
The optional device connector enables simple connection of several modules with the AS-i bus cable and the 24 V DC power supply. This additionally reduces the wiring effort and supports users in fast, error-free assembly. LEDs on the front of the new compact modules enable fast diagnostics on-site.
All devices of the new AS-i SlimLine compact series have a switchable sensor supply. Depending on requirements, the sensors can be supplied with power either from the AS-i bus cable, or from the 24 V DC power supply Uaux. Since the wiring of the sensors is independent of the choice of power supply, users can decide simply according to the application.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
