Siemens is launching 15" widescreen devices for gesture and multi-touch operation onto the market. The flat panel monitor Simatic IFP1500 and the two panel PCs Simatic IPC477D and IPC677D with a 15" display will complement the existing portfolio of 19" and 22" devices.
Outstanding features include industrial-standard anti-glare for easy legibility from wide viewing angles, high image resolution for precise operation, and automatic detection of spurious touching and operation caused for example by catching the screen with the ball of the hand, or soiling.
The continuous glass front is scratch-proof and resistant to chemicals, while a metal surround protects the glass edge from mechanical damage. Machinery and plant manufacturers benefit from the multi-touch devices from Siemens for modern operating concepts featuring zooming, scrolling and context-sensitive displays.
Multi-touch user interfaces can be implemented easily and efficiently thanks to the industry-specific device design, the practical functions and the supporting engineering tools.
The new flat panel monitor Simatic IFP1500 and the new panel PCs Simatic IPC477D and IPC677D with a 15" display are ideal for the intuitive, efficient operation of machinery and plant using one or more fingers as well as gestures or two hands. They can also be operated while wearing protective gloves, and can be used for single-touch applications.
The new devices with projected capacitive touchscreens (PCTs) designed specifically for industrial applications are splash-proof and dirt-resistant. The special design, which features a continuous glass front and keyless operation, makes the new products ideally suited to applications with rigorous cleanliness and hygiene requirements, for example in the food and beverages industry. The devices with an aluminum housing are designed for 24-hour continuous operation, and comply with high-temperature, vibration, shock and EMC requirements.

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
