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.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
