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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
