Siemens Digital Industries Software is expanding the Simcenter portfolio and presenting new Simcenter System Analyst software. This collaborative solution can be used to create industry-specific applications for the control of system simulation models. The software helps deploy system simulations throughout an entire company, expanding model usage to all levels of users, and helping ensure model continuity without changing the internal processes.
- Sinamics Startdrive V16 brings a single-axis version of Sinamics S120 to the TIA Portal.
- Innovative functions simplify safety approval, reduce commissioning times and increase user-friendliness.
Sinamics Startdrive commissioning software is the perfect tool for integrating drive hardware into the TIA Portal engineering framework. With the latest version Sinamics Startdrive V16, Siemens is expanding the hardware portfolio available on the automation platform. Following on from the integration of the Sinamics S120 multi-axis system, the single-axis version of this high-end servo drive system can now also be engineered in the TIA Portal. The drive control of the recently introduced Simatic Drive Controller is now also integrated in the commissioning tool. Drive-CliQ hubs, which increase the number of interfaces in the Sinamics S120 multi-axis group, as well as other add-on components, are now integrated in the TIA Portal, perfectly completing this hardware update.
- Third Mireo order from DB Regio
- Service in the Karlsruhe 7b network
- Passenger comfort and sustainably increased value over entire lifecycle
DB Regio, the regional transport business of Deutsche Bahn AG, has
ordered seven Mireo trains from Siemens Mobility. The trains will operate on
the regional express route between Karlsruhe and Heidelberg/Mannheim via
Bruchsal in the Karlsruhe 7b network. They will be built at the Siemens
Mobility plant in Krefeld, Germany, and their delivery is planned for the end
- New trend to supply renewable energy for mines as secure and cost-efficient alternative to fossil fuels
- Siemens' proven microgrid controller serves as technical basis for juwi's Hybrid IQ microgrid solutions
- Two projects in Australia successfully delivered, paving way for partners to roll-out solution in other countries
Siemens and the renewable energy developer juwi have joined forces to enter into a strategic technology partnership to focus on microgrids in the mining industry. A corresponding agreement was signed today. The two companies aim to roll-out and continually develop the advanced microgrid control system that enables the seamless integration of power from renewable energy to a mine's off-grid power supply. The Siemens Sicam based microgrid control platform is a proven and tested technology which is the basis for juwi's Hybrid IQ microgrid controller. juwi, on the other hand, brings industry-specific domain know-how and an excellent track record of planning and executing renewable energy projects at mine sites.
- Gas turbine rotor exchange allows for increased output and efficiency
- Control system upgraded to latest version of SPPA-T3000
The Dunamenti Power Plant in Százhalombatta, Hungary, is the largest gas-fired power plant in the country with a capacity of 794 megawatts (MW), making it a major source of reliable electricity in Hungary. Recently, in collaboration with the customer and plant owner, MET Asset Management AG, and within the scope of an overhaul project, Siemens Gas and Power replaced the entire rotor of the plant's SGT5-2000E gas turbine and installed a new, state-of-the-art SPPA-T3000 control system.
- Two new indoor GIS systems increase power and ensure reliable supply
- Clean Air products ensure
much more climate-friendly operation
- Turnkey solution provides
key support for transition to a new energy mix
German transmission grid operator TransnetBW
has commissioned Siemens to build new switchgear in the 380 kilovolt (kV)
Daxlanden substation in Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg. Two new gas-insulated
indoor switchgear, initially with 26 panels, will boost the substation's
transmission capacity and cover the increased transport demand in the German
high-voltage grid as a result of the transition to a new energy mix. In the
future, it will thus be possible to transport large quantities of wind energy
from northern Germany to the southern part of the country. Replacing sulfur
hexafluoride (SF6) with treated air, so-called Clean Air, as the insulating
medium in the bus ducts simultaneously ensures much more climate-friendly
operation. The commissioning of the turnkey solution will take place in stages
and be completed in 2029. The order is priced in the low triple-digit millions
- Designed for future power networks and digital substations
- Enhanced cyber security and communications
- User-friendly interfaces and software
With the new Reyrolle 5 series of protection relays, Siemens is further developing its offerings for medium-voltage and industrial power networks. The protection, control, monitoring and measuring of power networks is a vital element in managing electrical assets, increasing reliability, sustainability and the safety of operating personnel. The first device applications of the new generation of protection relay will be overcurrent and earth fault protection and transformer protection in substations. It includes comprehensive functionality as standard, with enhanced process data such as faults, events and waveform records enabling the power network to be effectively managed. The small number of device variants allows easy ordering and efficient engineering while the improved hardware platform makes it even easier to operate and manage the protection relays.
- Successful collaboration to be showcased at Formnext 2019
- CEAD lightweight extruder to allow high deposition rate and large print volumes mounted on a robot
- Sinumerik Run MyRobot /Direct Control for precise printing with Comau robot and CEAD extruder
CEAD, technology supplier of 3D printing equipment on the frontier of large scale polymer, glass and carbon fibers 3D printing, and Siemens intensify their collaboration and showcase their latest development the AM Flexbot at the upcoming Formnext 2019, a leading trade fair for Additive Manufacturing, on the Siemens booth D81, Hall 12.1.
The Schaeffler Group is a global automotive and industrial supplier with its own Special Machinery department which develops production plants to customer specifications, particularly assembly lines, testing equipment, and handling systems. Schaeffler has embarked on a comprehensive digitalization strategy in order to be prepared for market challenges and to make optimum use of the opportunities provided by digitalization. To achieve this, the company has been relying for 30 years on solutions from its technology partner, Siemens, in addition to a user-oriented approach to development, modularization, and globally applied standards. First-hand information on this topic is available at the Smart Production Systems (SPS) trade fair in Nuremberg. Digital transformation in Schaeffler’s Special Machinery department and the contribution of digital connectivity is the subject of two presentations at SPS 2019 in Nuremberg. Holger Auernheimer, Schaeffler, and Markus Weinländer, Siemens, will be presenting application examples and communications architecture options for the industrial Internet of Things on November 27, 2019 at 1:55 pm on the main stage of the Siemens booth, Frankenhalle, Nuremberg.
