- Siemens' Capital is selected by Europe's second largest car
manufacturer to automatically render electrical system diagrams, replacing
- Accurate documentation helps ensure rapid and effective vehicle
maintenance, helping Groupe PSA realize a 30% schedule reduction
is part of the Xcelerator portfolio of software, which is enabling tomorrow's
electronic design today
Siemens today announced that Siemens'
electrical design product for
its automotive aftersales documentation has been selected by Groupe PSA
, the second largest car manufacturer in Europe. Groupe PSA is an early
innovator of autonomous and connected cars, manufacturing five car brands:
Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel and Vauxhall. The company has an established process
of supplying its facilities with after-sales service documentation with several
types of design deliverables aiding rapid diagnosis. Using Capital's advanced
technology, Groupe PSA has replaced a largely manual process and can now
automatically render their electrical system diagrams using data that comes
directly from the PSA electrical/electronic (E/E) engineering department and
their harness suppliers to help provide "correct-by-construction" assurance.
The result is accurate documentation created using "as-manufactured"
data provided by Groupe PSA's suppliers which helps ensure rapid and effective vehicle
maintenance when required. Groupe PSA can now better enable their digital
enterprise and continue to innovate the mobile solutions of the future.

- Fast 1,000 Hz sampling rate and processing time deliver high accuracy and repeatability
- Seamless, user-friendly integration into Simatic automation systems
- Wide range of applications in pharmaceutical, food and beverage, chemical, and steel industries
Siwarex WP351 is Siemens’ newest solution for intelligent weighing automation. Measuring 20 millimeters width by 65 millimeters height, the module is one of the smallest weighing electronics units available. The device’s 1,000 Hz sampling rate and processing time combined with a digital output response time of less than one millisecond guarantee highest accuracy and repeatability. This capability represents especially in case of checking scales and high performance filling machines a big advantage, as even within very short weighing times the dosing devices are controlled in an optimal way.

- Acquisition to address rising demand for low-voltage power distribution in India
- Siemens to acquire 99% of C&S Electric Limited
- Transaction strengthens local market presence, enables creation of export hub
- Closing subject to regulatory approvals
In a step to meet the increasing demand for electrification across industry, infrastructure and buildings in India, Siemens Ltd. (India) today signed an agreement to acquire New Delhi-based C&S Electric Limited. The acquisition of one of the leading providers of electrical and electronic equipment for infrastructure, power generation, transmission and distribution, will strengthen Siemens’ position as a key supplier of low-voltage power distribution and electrical installation technology in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. Under the agreement, Siemens Ltd. will acquire approximately 99 percent of the equity share capital of C&S Electric Limited for around EUR 267 million (INR 21 billion). Closing of the acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals. In the future, Siemens envisions this partnership to pave the way for the establishment of a design and manufacturing hub in India, supporting the export of electrification solutions to fast-developing markets around the world. Siemens Ltd. is the local, publicly-listed entity of Siemens AG.
- Capacity of Toulouse metro Line A doubled by increasing train lengths from 26 to 52 meters
- Siemens and Tisséo worked through 1,000 nights to complete project on time without interrupting service
- World premiere for a fully automated VAL metro
Tisséo Collectivités, the transport network of Toulouse, inaugurated the new “XXL” Line A in its metro system. Awarded in November 2015, the “My Line A in XXL” project aimed to double metro capacity by increasing train lengths from 26 to 52 meters with 4-car rather than 2-car trains. The new trains can now carry up to 320 passengers, increasing the daily capacity of Line A from 220,000 to 400,000 passengers. The goal is to eventually reach an operating interval of 75 seconds between each train during peak hours to reduce waiting times and improve passenger experience in France’s fourth largest city.
- Jury’s decision for design by Berlin firm unanimous
- Clear urban development concept and new high-rise structure in center of Siemensstadt
- Historic location to be successfully transformed for the future
Siemens and the State of Berlin invited 18 architecture firms and urban planning teams to participate in the competition to redesign Siemensstadt (“Siemens City”), the company’s historic location in Berlin. After two days evaluating their proposals, the high-caliber jury has now reached a decision: “Siemensstadt 2.0 will be implemented on the basis of a design submitted by the Berlin firm Ortner & Ortner Baukunst,” said Stefan Behnisch, the distinguished architect who chaired the jury’s deliberations. “In the jury’s view, this design will provide a solid basis for the structure of the future Siemensstadt. It’s not the complete picture. It leaves room for necessary developments. It’s a design that treats the historical buildings with respect while enabling their up-to-date utilization. The design fulfills virtually all today’s requirements, but also leaves room for the future development of a new, modern city where people can both work and live,” he added.
