The new generation of mobile operation and monitoring panels from Siemens offers improvements in performance, flexibility, convenience and quality as compared with the previous range. Second-generation wired Simatic HMI Mobile Panels feature a brilliant seven or nine inch 16 million color widescreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio capable of presenting even highly complex and detailed images of processes and plant clearly.
Other highlights include the unique illuminated emergency stop button, the flexible options for integration into safety applications and a compact connection box that can be mounted directly on the cabinet. The new IP65 operator panels can be used across a wide range of temperatures (from 0 to 45°C), are dust-tight and resistant to chemical action and incorporate splashwater protection. The panels, which offer combined key and touch operation, are integrated into the automation solution via Profinet and configured using the Simatic WinCC engineering tool in the TIA Portal and a novel Style Editor.
The second-generation Simatic HMI Mobile Panels feature a robust industrial design capable of withstanding falls from a height of up to 1.2 meters and offer all of the functionality and performance of the Simatic HMI Comfort Panels. It is possible to configure operating screens for both static and mobile applications and then add mobile specifics, for example. Some 40 percent larger in area, the widescreen-format display produces a needle-sharp, bright and detailed image. It is fully dimmable too, meaning that it can be adapted easily to different environments.
Models that include a stop/emergency shutdown button include a novel button illumination feature that becomes active only when the mobile operator panel is connected to a safety circuit. Now users need just the one panel version for automation with straightforward stop and safe emergency shutdown functions.
The new compact connection box takes up only a third of the space of its predecessor and can be mounted directly on the cabinet, which is particularly advantageous for small machines with a small footprint. The connection box is simply bolted onto the outside of the cabinet door and then fully wired up from the inside. Robust connecting cables from two to 25 meters in length ensure the operator always has adequate freedom to move around. The new mobile panels also include a maintenance-free energy storage system that keeps them operational for five minutes with no power supply in case the operator needs to move between connection boxes, for example.
Ease of use has been improved as compared with previous models too. For example the three-stage acknowledgment button on the panel handle now has two clear tactile feedback points.

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
