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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
