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

  • 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: 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...
