Operator control and monitoring in special environments

18.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Rugged Simatic industrial monitors and panel PCs for operator control and monitoring in special environments
  • Stainless steel Simatic Inox Pro devices with the high IP66K degree of protection for hygienic production areas
  • Simatic Ex OG panel PC for use in the hazardous area in zones 1/21 and 2/22 in the chemicals, oil and gas industries

Siemens launches devices for operator control and monitoring in special environments. The new monitors and panel PCs are suitable for use in hygienic production areas, such as in the food industry, and also meet the requirements of the chemical, oil and gas industries.

The new stainless steel Simatic Inox Pro devices have the high IP66K degree of protection, and are suitable for use in hygienic production areas in the food and tobacco, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and fine chemical industries.

The devices have an analog-resistive 19-inch touch display covered by a contiguous, chemically resistant decorative foil, and also have food grade seals and splinter protection for the display.

The stainless steel enclosure is ground with a 240 grain size, which produces a surface smooth enough to protect against contamination.

The new Inox Pro devices have 19-inch displays, and are available either as the IPC277D Inox Pro industrial PC or as the IFP1900 Inox Pro Ethernet monitor. All new devices can be mounted on a stand or a jointed arm.

The new, rugged Simatic Ex OG panel PC is designed for use in the chemicals, oil and gas industries. The new panel PC has the high IP66 degree of protection throughout, and is designed for use in temperatures ranging from minus 40 to plus 65 degrees.

It is suitable for use in hazardous zones 1/21 and 2/22. The new Simatic Ex OG panel PC is available in versions with either a 4:3 format 15-inch or a 16:9 format 22-inch display.

The capacitive, multitouch glass display with automatic brightness regulation is reflection-free, even under direct sunlight. It is easy to operate, even when wearing thin gloves.

The industrial PC has a fast Intel Core i7 processor, an eight gigabyte memory, and a 300 GB SSD (solid-state drive). The Simatic Ex OG panel PC can be configured with a support arm, or with a table or floor stand. A camera, Bluetooth, WLAN and RFID reader are available as optional extras.

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
