It diagnoses and visualizes Ethernet networks, such as Industrial Ethernet and Profinet. Network activities are logged continually, and made available to users for evaluation and further processing. The software also helps users react quickly to faults and critical situations.
Sinema Server monitors the programmable controllers connected to the network, and infrastructure components, such as Industrial Ethernet switches and Industrial Wireless LAN access points. Auto Discovery automatically detects not only the controllers and infrastructure components but also their network-relevant parameters. The software then derives the network topology and statistics from this information.This is shown graphically on websites and, if desired, the user can supplement this with additional diagnostics screens. A user can access Sinema Server websites from any computer in the network. Access is protected by an HTTPS protocol, and can be made even more secure by password authentication. More than one user can call the same information at the same time, irrespective of their locations in the network.
The software also has an e-mail client function and an OPC server for forwarding network data and alarms to other systems. Sinema Server can be easily integrated into HMI (Human Machine Interface) and visualization systems, such as Simatic WinCC. This enables the user to monitor the communication in an automation system.

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...
A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.
Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
