Siemens has developed the Siplus CMS1200 Condition Monitoring System to monitor mechanical components. It is an expansion module for the S7-1200 controller that is based on the SM 1281 Condition Monitoring Module.
The user creates an efficient monitoring system by combining up to seven SM 1281 modules, to each of which four vibration acceleration sensors and one speed measurement sensor can be connected. This system can be used for continuous monitoring of mechanical components such as motors, generators, pumps and fans.
When Siplus CMS1200 is used for predictive maintenance, significant changes as a result of wear, for example, can consequently be detected at an early stage, enabling maintenance activities to be better planned and carried out on schedule.
By means of the TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation) engineering framework, the Siplus CMS1200 Condition Monitoring System is readily integrated into an automation group containing HMI (human machine interface) devices, controls and motion control components.
The recorded signals are easily evaluated with the CMS analytical software on the SM 1281 modules, or archived with a time stamp in the 800 MB memory for further analysis. Trend values, raw data, frequency ranges and messages can be recorded.
The versatile analytical capabilities of Siplus CMS1200 range from parameter-based, frequency-selective analyses, through trend analyses, to monitoring the limits of frequency ranges. The fingerprint comparison makes it easy to localize damage.
The parameter-based diagnostics run directly on the S7-1200 CPU for easy monitoring. These diagnostics are performed directly on the SM 1281 module and can be accessed by web browser to avoid the production cycle being burdened by detailed, frequency-selective diagnostics.

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...
