Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35
Siemens is extending its portfolio of Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) with a new drive series featuring synchronous reluctance technology, characterized by very high levels of efficiency.
Reluctance motors and converters are specially designed to work together as an Integrated Drive System, enabling particularly efficient operation. Predefined parameters in the form of a code on the motor type plate simplify the commissioning process.
The new drive series is based on the proven Simotics 1LE1 motor platform, and is designed to interoperate with the Sinamics G120 converters. The Simotics reluctance motors cover an output range from 5.5 to 30 kW and are available either with an aluminum enclosure for general operating conditions (Simotics GP) or with a gray cast-iron enclosure for more aggressive operating conditions (Simotics SD). The synchronous principle means that the speed remains constant, and sensorless vector control ensures optimum performance. Both features enhance the controllability of the drive system. Ramp-up times are short thanks to the motor's low inherent moment of inertia combined with the vector control. The low losses in the rotor result in a high thermal utilization of the motor. In terms of its design and handling, the motor is similar to the 1LE1 asynchronous motors.
The Sinamics G120 standard converter incorporates vector control designed specifically for reluctance motors. The identification of the pole positions prevents jerking movements of the drive on activation, while a flying restart enables synchronization with the running motor. As part of the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept, the drive series is integrated into the automation environment via Profibus and Profinet interfaces.
The reluctance technology is used in process engineering with pumps, fans, compressors, mixers and centrifuges, in materials handling applications, and in the mechanical engineering sector.
The Simotics reluctance motors with an aluminum or gray cast-iron enclosure cover an output range from 5.5 to 30 kW, achieving high levels of efficiency in full and partial load range.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
