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.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
