Logic modules with graded text display for industry and building systems

11.03.2008
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed new Logo! basic devices.

The logic modules of the 0BA6 series are significantly more powerful than their predecessor models. With 200 function blocks, the memory capacity is fifty percent larger than before, and the analog inputs have been doubled to four.


The new devices have four high-speed counters up to five kilohertz and are equipped with Teleservice functions as well as ten menu languages. The new separate text display tailored to the logic modules deserves special mention. It can be connected direct to the basic device or installed up to ten meters away.

The new Logo! logic modules of the 0BA6 series are suitable for universal use in industry and in building systems. Diverse applications are possible, ranging from lighting controls, car washes and access controls, through aquarium systems, trash compactors, strapping machines, axle lubrication systems on trains, and feeding systems in cattle rearing, right up to pressure intensifiers and pumping stations.

The new text display has four lines with twelve characters each. Fifty different four-line messages can be configured, with expanded display options such as ticker text, bar graph or toggle parameters. Up to 32 characters per line can be stored for continuous ticker text, for example. The display on the external text display is independent of that on the internal text display. For example, messages relevant to operation can be displayed on the separate text display, and service-related information can be displayed in the control cabinet.

The new logic modules and the internal and external display are configured with the Logo! Soft Comfort V6 standard software. New function blocks for arithmetic and pulse width modulation expand the application options.

The Teleservice function simplifies device control and troubleshooting for service purposes. To upgrade existing systems with earlier Logo! generations, only the basic devices have to be renewed. The installed expansion and communication modules can be reused, as can already created programs.

Im Focus: Solving the mystery of quantum light in thin layers

A very special kind of light is emitted by tungsten diselenide layers. The reason for this has been unclear. Now an explanation has been found at TU Wien (Vienna)

It is an exotic phenomenon that nobody was able to explain for years: when energy is supplied to a thin layer of the material tungsten diselenide, it begins to...

Im Focus: An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.

The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...

Im Focus: Shaping nanoparticles for improved quantum information technology

Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility located at DOE's Argonne National...

Im Focus: Novel Material for Shipbuilding

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.

The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...

Im Focus: Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
