Go easy on resources, optimize energy consumption, avoid water losses, prevent flooding, perform predictive servicing and maintenance – there are many challenges facing the water industry. And they will only increase with the trend toward urbanization and the transition to a new energy mix. Digital solutions can play a major role in staying on top of these demands and guaranteeing a reliable security of supply. At IFAT 2020 trade fair, Siemens presents in hall A1 booth 439 how digitalization solutions can make your operating processes more efficient and reliable. From planning to operations and maintenance: At the booth Siemens showcases the integrated portfolio that covers the entire water and wastewater plant lifecycle.
- Compact radar extends transmitters
into applications with vapor and dusty requirements
- Bluetooth wireless technology delivers fast and effortless commissioning
- Wide range of liquids and solids applications
in practically all market segments including energy, mining, aggregates and
presents Sitrans LR100 series 80 GHz radar transmitters, compact instruments
with a narrow beam for flexible installations in existing vessel openings—or
even non-intrusively through plastic vessels. The transmitters’ 80GHz high
frequency delivers robust, reliable measurements even in challenging
environments such as those with vapors, condensation, turbulence, or solids. The
custom microchip technology delivers fast response and extremely high
sensitivity to detect even the weakest of signals.
In just one
week, Siemens and Aucma have developed an idea into a prototype for an
intelligent disinfection robot, which will soon join the battle against
Coronavirus and other viruses in hospitals. The electric robot can
disinfect up to 36,000 square meters in one hour and features a robust chassis
that can overcome obstacles and navigate slopes.
- Siemens opens its Additive Manufacturing Network to enable the efficient execution of design and printing requests by doctors, hospitals and suppliers of medical equipment in response to COVID-19 pandemic
- Siemens’ designers and engineers are a part of the AM Network to answer design requests
- Designers, engineers and service providers with 3D printers can offer expertise through the AM Network
In response to the ongoing global health crisis caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Siemens is making its Additive Manufacturing (AM) Network along with its 3D printers, available to the global medical community to speed design and production of medical components. The AM Network connects users, designers and 3D-print service providers to enable faster and less complicated production of spare parts for machines like ventilators. The Siemens AM network is available globally and covers the entire value chain – from upload and simulation to checking the design up to the printing process and associated services.
Siemens has received TÜV
certification in compliance with IEC 62443-4-2 and -4-1 (standards for IT
security in industrial automation systems) for network components in the
Scalance XB-200, XC-200, XP-200, XF-200BA and XR-300WG product families. The
certification demonstrates that the product development process previously
certified in compliance with IEC 62443-4-1 has been consequently applied during
product development. It also confirms that key technical product requirements
stipulated by IEC 62443-4-2 have been taken into account and implemented in the
network components. Customers are therefore able to realize secure system
architectures, which clearly increases the overall security of a plant.
Siemens is expanding its high-end Simatic MV500 series of optical readers to include the Simatic MV560 X. With 5.3 megapixels, the device features the highest resolution in the product family. Like the MV560 U model, the MV560 X has two separate Ethernet ports and a working memory of 2 Gigabytes. Due to the high image resolution, the new device is ideal for reading particularly small codes in large image fields or numerous codes on large objects. In addition, the Simatic MV560 X can be used to implement completely new applications – even on fast-running production lines. A large number of images can also be stored directly on the camera without problems.
