Open cloud platform boosts digital service business for industrial customers

09.10.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Machines and systems are connected to the Cloud via a Connector Box - irrespective of their manufacturers
  • Web services like the Fleet Manager and Visual Analyzer enable data analysis
  • Development of web services in an open eco-system

Siemens is expanding its open platform "Siemens Cloud for Industry" to form the basis of new digital business models for industrial companies. The new Connector Box is a Simatic IPC-based cloud gateway that transmits machine and system data easily and securely to the Cloud.

With this solution it is possible to extract and transmit data from control and drive systems from Siemens and 3rd party suppliers. This functionality will also be integrated into the Siemens portfolio of industrial communication products. The data is then available for evaluation on the platform, which uses SAP HANA Cloud Platform technology.

Siemens offers two powerful web services for analysis: Visual Analyzer and Fleet Manager. Users can assess the states of machines and systems and optimize them. In the future, users will be able to use the Siemens Cloud for Industry, which is designed as an open ecosystem, to develop their own web services. These can be used as the basis for their own digital services, such as predictive maintenance, energy data management and resource optimization.

Users include, for example, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). The platform enables them to develop and offer new digital services on the basis of their machine data. Reduced downtime is one of the benefits they achieve by monitoring and analyzing the data of their machine fleets, which may be scattered all over the world.

The Siemens Cloud for Industry is currently in the pilot phase. By expanding this new platform Siemens is driving forward the digitalization of industry. The Siemens Cloud for Industry is an important part of the Digital Enterprise Strategy.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
