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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
