Simatic Migration Services make machines and systems future proof

15.10.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Simple migration to pioneering Simatic technologies and the TIA Portal
  • Extended machine lifespan and increased reliability
  • Lower migration costs and minimum downtime during the implementation
  • Partial and complete migration are both possible

Simatic Migration Services enable companies to migrate to the latest Simatic technologies. This makes their legacy automation systems future-proof, increases plant availability and extends machine lifespan. The services are designed for manufacturing customers in all discrete automation industries. With Simatic migrations services, customers can retain Siemens experts to perform the entire migration.

The quick and simple changeover can be achieved through standardized migration offerings, which range from consulting and conception, through the implementation, testing and commissioning to the handover of the new system, including technical training for the personnel. Precise planning minimizes both the risks of migration and the scheduled downtime for the implementation.

The services can be tailored flexibly to match a company's requirements. Both partial and complete migration of systems and machines are possible. Within the scope of the service, Siemens experts support users, in particular with the migration of application software from Step 7, Protool or WinCC Flexible projects to TIA Portal projects.

If required, frequency converters and Motion Control systems can also be modernized. Companies that take advantage of Simatic Migration Services benefit from a smooth migration, long-term spare part availability, integrated diagnostic functions that speed up fault correction, and reduced downtimes.

Modern Simatic technology and network infrastructures also enable efficient interoperability of all components and greatest transparency across all levels: relevant information is available anywhere in the plant at any time. This increases the availability of machines and systems, as well as making them future-proof.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
