Product Pictures

Siemens process control system first product with IECÂ 62443 security certification

Siemens is the first company to obtain security certification from TĂśV SĂśD (German inspection and certification organisation) for an automation system based on IECÂ 62443-4-1 and IECÂ 62443-3-3. For the product certification according to IECÂ 62443-4-1 and 62443-3-3, TĂśV SĂśD tested and verified the security functions implemented in the Simatic PCS 7 process control system.

Slimline design with multi-touch, user-friendly operation for industry

Siemens is complementing its industrial operator control and monitoring devices with new Simatic Flat Panel monitors and Simatic Panel PCs in multi-touch, 16:9 widescreen format. The new versions are the Simatic Panel PC IPC277E with 15 and 19 inch displays, and the Simatic Panel PC IPC477E and Simatic Flat Panel IFP monitors with 15, 19 and 22 inch displays.

Sinamics G120C converter series with new frame sizes to address higher power ratings

Siemens is extending its Sinamics G120C converter series to include three new frame sizes for higher power ratings. The new frame sizes cover the output range from 22 to 132 kW.

Effective protection for electric motors and loads

The Simatic ET 200SP motor starter protects electric motors and loads. Siemens has designed it for higher performance, and added new versions and functions. Four adjustment ranges up to 5.5 kilowatts now make the motor starter particularly powerful.

Efficient approach to demanding motion control solutions with new software

Siemens has updated the software for its high-end motion control system Simotion and, in the new Version 4.5, has equipped it with object-oriented programming (OOP) and communication via OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture). Thus, mechanical engineers can now implement large software projects much more efficiently than before and can now access Simotion data in a standardized way, across all automation levels – as far as the Cloud.

Substantially more possible applications for Siemens logic modules

Siemens has substantially widened the range of possible applications for the current Logo! 8 logic module series. The temperature range has been extended down to minus 20 degrees Celsius to allow the logic module to be used for the first time at sub-zero temperatures.

Siemens extends high-voltage motor portfolio to include new series up to 70 MW

A flexible modular concept enables precisely tailored solutions in all kinds of industrial applications in the high power range: With the new Simotics HV HP high-voltage motor series, Siemens is now able to cover an extended power range of up to 70 MW.

Integrated drive system for open cooling circuits

Based on the Integrated Drive Systems concept, Siemens is offering an environmentally friendly integrated drive system for open circuits encompassing Simotics FD motors and water-cooled Sinamics S120 converters.

RFID system simplifies access control for operating personnel at machines and plants

With its new Simatic RF1000 RFID system, Siemens is offering a flexible, simple solution to monitor access to machines and plants using the new Simatic RF1060R reader – the first device of its type on the market. It enables companies to use existing employee ID badges to identify operating personnel and to document the access to plants and machines.

Industrial Ethernet switches for reliable communication in automation

With its Scalance XC-200 product line, Siemens is bringing a new generation of compact Industrial Ethernet switches onto the market. Users can use them to set up electrical and optical line, star and ring structures in industrial networks. The layer 2 network components can be integrated into both Profinet and EtherNet/IP diagnostics.

New RFID reader generation for flexible applications

Siemens has modernized its Simatic RF300 RFID system by adding three new readers: RF310R, RF340R and RF350R. They are integrated into the Simatic Step 7 engineering systems and the TIA Portal to make commissioning easy. The new readers offer an additional transponder protocol (air interface) for MOBY E transponders (MIFARE classic, ISO 14443 A) and automatic recognition of various types of transponder (RF300, ISO 15693, MIFARE classic).

Synchronous reluctance motors combined with high-performance converters

Lower system costs and short pay-back time: Firmware V4.8 enables Sinamics S120 converters to operate with Simotics synchronous reluctance motors.

Temperature measuring system lengthens the service lives of plants and improves product quality

In the Sitrans TO500, Siemens is putting an innovative measuring system for fiber-optic temperature measurement onto the market. It enables complex temperature measurements and detection of the precise position of critical overtemperatures, for example in tube and tube-bundle reactors. The Sitrans TO500 is characterized by a large number of measuring points (up to 48 per measuring lance, depending on the temperature range) and the small diameter of the sensor measuring lance.
