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.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
