- Simatic Robot Integrator with Simatic Robot Library makes engineering easy for robots in the TIA Portal
- Universal interface supports integration by all robot manufacturers
- Re-usable program codes thanks to standard programming language
- Time savings of up to 30 percent for engineering
Siemens presents the Simatic Robot Library for the Simatic Robot
Integrator - a new universal robot library for the TIA (Totally Integrated
Automation) Portal, which replaces the previous manufacturer-specific
libraries. The specification has been developed in close cooperation with robot
manufacturers ABB Robotics, Comau, Epson, FANUC, Kawasaki Robotics, KUKA,
Panasonic Industry, STÄUBLI, Techman Robot, Yamaha, and YASKAWA. In future,
users will be able to program most of the robots available on the market in the
TIA Portal using the Simatic Robot Library, and make use of standard operating
concepts based on the Simatic Robot Integrator and Simatic HMI.
- Growing demand for remote access via public 5G networks for remote maintenance
- Scalance MUM856-1 connects local industrial applications to the public 5G network
- Sinema Remote Connect management platform provides secure access to remote plants and machines
Siemens presents the first industrial 5G router for connecting local industrial applications to a public 5G network. The device will be available in spring 2021. Using the newly developed Scalance MUM856-1, industrial applications such as machines, control elements, and other devices can be accessed remotely via a public 5G network, providing a simple remote maintenance option for these applications using the high data rates offered by 5G. The Sinema Remote Connect management platform for VPN connections can be used to provide easy and secure access to these remote plants or machines – even if they are integrated in other networks.
- Siemens Mobility supplying the complete system technology for C-ITS in Austria
- C-ITS allows for exchange of information between vehicles and the road via ITS-G5 broadcast technology
- ASFiNAG is the first infrastructure provider in Europe to install C-ITS
Siemens Mobility is pleased to announce that it is
partnering with ASFiNAG, the operating authority for the Austrian highway network,
to provide the technology for an intelligent traffic
management system that facilitates the exchange of safety information between
vehicles and the road. The “Cooperative Intelligent Transport System”
(C-ITS) is a next generation traffic management system that uses
broadcast technology to analyze roadway conditions and disseminates information
to motorists relating to traffic jams, accidents, and lane
closures. ASFiNAG is the first infrastructure
provider in Europe to reach the milestone of installing a network connecting
the vehicle and road. The process of implementing the system across 2,200
kilometers of highway and expressway in Austria has already started.
- Process bus significantly increases level of digitalization in substations
- Faster installation and commissioning
- Improved system reliability
- Benchmark for future-proof design
Siemens Smart Infrastructure has installed process bus technology at the new high-voltage substation in Los Sauces for one of the largest Peruvian distribution network operators, Luz del Sur. This process bus installation with Siprotec merging units and Siprotec protection devices is one of the first fully digitized energy automation system in operation. The new technology sets benchmarks with its future-proof design and will help optimize the entire operation of the power grid.
