SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11
Siemens is expanding its open platform "Siemens Cloud for Industry" to form the basis of new digital business models for industrial companies. The new Connector Box is a Simatic IPC-based cloud gateway that transmits machine and system data easily and securely to the Cloud.
With this solution it is possible to extract and transmit data from control and drive systems from Siemens and 3rd party suppliers. This functionality will also be integrated into the Siemens portfolio of industrial communication products. The data is then available for evaluation on the platform, which uses SAP HANA Cloud Platform technology.
Siemens offers two powerful web services for analysis: Visual Analyzer and Fleet Manager. Users can assess the states of machines and systems and optimize them. In the future, users will be able to use the Siemens Cloud for Industry, which is designed as an open ecosystem, to develop their own web services. These can be used as the basis for their own digital services, such as predictive maintenance, energy data management and resource optimization.
Users include, for example, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). The platform enables them to develop and offer new digital services on the basis of their machine data. Reduced downtime is one of the benefits they achieve by monitoring and analyzing the data of their machine fleets, which may be scattered all over the world.
The Siemens Cloud for Industry is currently in the pilot phase. By expanding this new platform Siemens is driving forward the digitalization of industry. The Siemens Cloud for Industry is an important part of the Digital Enterprise Strategy.

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...
