Energy-efficient operation is a core requirement for users of flow machines. The new Sinamics G120P is particularly suitable for plant manufacturers that require an economical, energy-efficient and easy-to-use drive for pumps, fans and compressors. The inverter is available in the power range from 0.37 kW to 18.5 kW. Sinamics G120P comprises a Control Unit (CU), a Power Module (PM) and an operating unit, and can be optionally equipped with the Intelligent Operator Panel (IOP). The high IP55 degree of protection also enables the inverter to be operated under harsh ambient conditions, such as applications in building automation, the process industry or in the water management industry. It can also be used for the closed-loop speed control of fans and circulating pumps for heating and cooling systems, for booster pumps, or for pumps for level control.
To enable the economical operation of applications and equipment, the inverter possesses special functions for improving energy efficiency. The new inverter is characterized by a very low reactive power value. The integrated hibernation function enables energy-saving standby mode as a function of the setpoints. By automatically switching to line-fed operation at rated speed, a saving of up to three percent of the energy consumption can be achieved. The auto-ramping function enables currents to be limited and power peaks to be avoided. The inverter only has low effects on the power supply system and fulfills the requirements of the IEC/EN 61000-3-12 standard. No additional components such as line reactors are needed.The STARTER and SIZER tools familiar from the Sinamics range of drives are also available for this new inverter. The software additionally comprises a large number of application-specific technology functions and modules, such as a digital real-time clock, flying restart and PID controller. The I/O and fieldbus interfaces such as Modbus RTU, CANopen, USS and Profibus have been adapted to the special requirements. A USB interface has been integrated in the inverter for commissioning and diagnostics purposes.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
