Visit to the "Digital Factory" in Amberg

German Chancellor Merkel visits the "Digital Factory"

On her tour of Siemens' electronics manufacturing plant in Amberg, Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel got a first-hand impression of the fourth industrial revolution, known as Industrie 4.0 in Germany. The facility is a prime example of advanced product automation and has received numerous awards. The Amberg factory already combines the real and virtual worlds: Products communicate with machines, and all production processes are optimally integrated and controlled via IT.

Modular concept up to 18 megawatts cuts project planning times for Simotics motors

The new motors from the Simotics HV M series cover an output range of 16 MW at 10 kV and 18 MW at 6 kV (50 Hz). The use of standard tools ensures shorter engineering times.

Complete range of low-voltage motors from Siemens for flexible deployment

Because the modular concept enables users to choose for example between air cooling and water cooling or between self-ventilation and forced ventilation, the Simotics FD motors can be adapted to suit extremely diverse applications.

Synchronous reluctance technology increases energy efficiency and dynamic response

The Simotics reluctance motors with an aluminum or gray cast-iron enclosure cover an output range from 5.5 to 30 kW, achieving high levels of efficiency in full and partial load range.

New RFID transponder with large memory and a mobile handheld reader

Siemens is expanding its RFID product range, Simatic RF600, with new transponders that have considerably greater memory capacities and a compact and powerful mobile read/write device.

New mobile wireless router for high-bandwidth industrial remote communication

Siemens has extended its Scalance M mobile wireless router series to include two new units - Scalance M876-4 enables communication using LTE; Scalance M876-3 for transmitting data via UMTS and EVDO.

Liquid cooling in Siemens converters reduces energy consumption

Thanks to the sealed cabinet system, the liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 Cabinet Modules frequency converter is ideally suited for use in harsh environments. Efficient heat dissipation means there is no need for air conditioning, which markedly reduces energy consumption.

Rapid planning and acceptance with pre-certified marine motors

As pre-certified Simotics DP marine motors are available in a choice of efficiency classes from IE1 to IE4, customers are able to benefit from enormous energy saving potential. The different versions and output ranges are designed to comply with widely differing requirements.

New series of planetary gear units offers the highest efficiency in its class

The Planurex 3 planetary gear unit series is available in ten sizes, and has the highest efficiency in its class. This technologically further developed series replaces the previous Planurex 2, initially in the XL range up to 5,450 kNm.

Robust, easily installed commanding and signaling devices in a modern design

Sirius Act is a completely new system of commanding and signaling devices developed by Siemens. A modular system, it features a robust design in with IP69K degree of protection, high-level aesthetics and simple operation.

Compact advanced controllers combine small size with high performance

Siemens is expanding its portfolio of advanced controllers in the Simatic S7-1500 family with the addition of two particularly compact controllers. Simatic S7-1511C and S7-1512C combine CPU (including front display) with inputs and outputs in one enclosure.

Ethernet interface extends use of industrial monitors

Through the integration of an Ethernet interface, Siemens is extending the possibilities for using its Flat Panel product.

Extended Online Support platform increases efficiency for industrial companies

Siemens shows its extended Industry Online Support at the Hannover Messe 2015. With a comprehensive range of information, advice and dialog, the platform has supported industrial customers for more than 15 years throughout the life cycle of machines and plants - from planning right through to maintenance.

Siemens and Festo win Optima as a pilot customer for innovative transport system

Optima consumer GmbH is the first pilot customer for the multi-carrier-system developed jointly by Siemens and Festo. This highly flexible transport system can be integrated precisely into existing intralogistics systems. With the help of the new transport system, machine manufacturers and manufacturing companies can adapt their production lines and machines quickly to different formats, sizes and product types and to seasonal requirements.

Motor management system communicates via Modbus

Siemens has expanded its Simocode pro motor management system to include Modbus communication. Users and switchboard manufacturers can now integrate the motor management system from Siemens into Modbus-based automation and control system solutions in process industries such as chemicals, oil and gas, water and cement, as well as mining.
