Siemens has added further base units, buffer modules and extra functions to its Sitop PSU8600 power supply system. With a 40 ampere load current, the new buffer modules increase availability by achieving bridging times of up to 20 seconds in case of power failures. If a fourth expansion module (CNX8600) is connected, the power supply offers up to 20 outputs.
Both the outputs of the base units and the expansion modules can be set to a wider voltage range of between 5 and 28 V. This means that users do not need external power supplies for special voltages. The 40 A base units is now also available with a single output.
Siemens also offers two compact 20 A base units, one with a width of 80 mm and a single output, the other one with a width of 100 mm and 4 outputs, each supplying 5 amperes. Users can simply activate the integrated web server with a switch and read out power supply data from mobile devices such as smartphones, thereby speeding up commissioning, for example.
Two new BUF8600 buffer modules, based on high-capacity UltraCap dual-layer capacitors, provide longer bridging times in case of power failures. At 24 V and a 40 A load current, the 60 mm wide buffer module buffers for 4 seconds, the 125 mm wide version for up to 10 seconds. Lower load currents allow correspondingly longer buffer times. Up to 2 buffer modules – also combined – can be integrated into the networked system. For example, buffer times of 80 seconds can be achieved at 10 A – that is usually sufficient to shut down a PC safely.
Users can now simply switch the integrated web server on and off with a DIP switch on the base unit instead of using the TIA Portal. This enables operating and diagnostic data to be read, even without a programming device, by using mobile devices such as tablet PCs, smartphones or notebooks; this speeds up commissioning and troubleshooting.
The Sitop PSU8600 was introduced in 2014 and is the first power supply that can be fully integrated into Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), which simplifies configuration and operation in the TIA Portal and Step 7. Comprehensive operating and diagnostics information is available through the integral Profinet interface. This information can be evaluated directly via Simatic S7 and visualized in WinCC.
Standardized Step 7 function blocks for Simatic controllers and ready-made WinCC faceplates are available as free downloads for fast integration in user programs. The Sitop PSU8600 is particularly suitable for industries that have high requirements in terms of reliability and integration, such as the automotive, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical industries, and also in plant building and special machine construction.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
