An extension to the EC Type Examination Certificate has opened up new scope for the IMB1 motor series, which is now approved for both mains and converter-fed operation. The Sizer engineering tool for Siemens drives can be used to ascertain the operating data of Simotics XP 1MB1 motors used with the approved Sinamics converters. Energy-efficient, reliable converter-fed motor operation is possible in an output range of 0.09 to 200 kilowatts.
Motors used in potentially explosive environments such as those encountered in the chemical and petrochemical, oil and gas industries have to comply with IEC EN 60079 standards designed to protect human life, machines and the environment. With its Simotics XP motor series, Siemens offers a range of explosion-proof motors for use in potentially explosive gas and dust-laden atmospheres. These motors are available in protection types Ex nA, Ex tb and Ex tc for use in zones 2, 21 and 22.
Used in combination with Sinamics converters, the Simotics XP 1MB1 motors form a pre-tested and ideally coordinated Integrated Drive System (IDS). Benefits for the user include minimal installation costs, high availability and economical plant operation.
The explosion-proof Simotics XP motors are particularly suited for use in the chemical and petrochemical industry. They are also used in the oil and gas industry, the woodworking and plastics processing industries and in agriculture. The motors are certified in compliance with the European Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX), IECEx (required for example in Australia) und EAC (Eurasia).

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
