Easy integration of industrial heating processes into automated systems

20.11.2014

SPS IPC Drives 2014, Hall 11

  • Two new product lines for controlling electrical heating elements in 230 V and 400 V/480 V networks: Siplus HCS4200 and HCS4300
  • Industrial heating processes integrated in TIA Portal: simplified engineering, effective diagnosis and parameterization

New heating control systems from Siemens switch and control heating panels and elements in industrial applications: Siplus HCS4200 is suitable for 230 V networks, Siplus HCS4300 for 400 V/480 V networks.

Built to a modular, compact and space-saving design, these distributed I/O systems can be adapted to specific applications. Heating control systems from Siemens can be found in a range of sectors and applications all over the world, drying paint and coatings, for example, in the molding of plastics and lightweight construction materials, in plastic welding and in film extrusion.

The new heating control systems promise to help plant operators cut their energy consumption by facilitating energy-efficient heating element actuation and avoiding current spikes in the network.

Thanks to their modular structure and integral functions, the new Siplus HCS heating control systems require up to 80 percent less space in the cabinet than conventional heating solutions with separate components and are considerably easier to wire up too.

The Siplus HCS heating control systems integrate components including switching elements and fuses as well as functions such as Profinet communication, actuation mechanisms and extensive, detailed diagnostics in one compact device. The new product lines improve the heating process and help to reduce downtime and avoid outages.

The comprehensive and detailed diagnostic functions in the heating control systems, for example, help users to detect and localize problems in the heating process – which heat source has failed, perhaps, or which incoming or outgoing fuse has tripped – quickly. The diagnostic data is reported to the central system controller via Profinet.

The heating control units are readily integrated into the automation system with, for example, HMI(Human Machine Interface) devices, controllers and motion control components via the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) Portal engineering framework.

All automation devices are processed in a single project in the engineering process. The TIA Portal includes a thermographic library for the WinCC advanced Scada (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system that makes it quick and convenient for users to visualize heating panels and connect them to the operating, machine and process workflows.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

New technique promises tunable laser devices

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
