Siemens integrates Sitop power supply into Simatic PCS 7 process control system

24.04.2015

  • Integration of the Sitop UPS1600 uninterruptible DC power supply increases transparency about operating states and plant availability
  • Sitop library for Simatic PCS 7 as free download
  • More Sitop power supplies to be included in 2015

Siemens is integrating its Sitop UPS1600 DC UPS with Ethernet/Profinet interface into the Simatic PCS 7 process control system. The energy storage units of the uninterruptible DC power supplies with 24 V DC output voltage and 10, 20 or 40 amperes current facilitate buffering of power failures for up to several hours.

The Ethernet/Profinet interface enables users to integrate the UPS1600 directly into the control system. Information about the operating state can then be transmitted, evaluated and visualized via software blocks. The software also automatically creates alarm messages. Users are then in a position to detect impending failures early on and initiate countermeasures, thus increasing plant availability.

New Sitop UPS1600 software blocks in the Simatic S7 controller permit direct data transfer (of operating and diagnostic data, for example) into the message system as well as of UPS faceplates of the process control system. The maintenance information can then be evaluated and visualized by the maintenance system of the Simatic PCS 7.

In this way, users are clearly in the picture about the operating status of the power supply and connected energy storage units. During power outages or other disturbances, they can initiate counter measures or instigate replacement of the battery modules as measures to prevent potential downtimes. This is imperative particularly in the process industry since even short failures of individual components can result in high costs and in continuous processes can even make a time-consuming restart necessary.

In the coming months, Siemens will integrate more Sitop components, such as redundant 24 V network power supply units, or the Sitop PSU8600 power supply system, into the Simatic PCS 7 process control system. This provides optimum support during the engineering, operating and maintenance phases both for solution providers and plant operators using Sitop. The Sitop library for Simatic PCS 7 is available as a free download.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

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,...
