Dedicated sensors record presence, brightness, temperature, humidity and CO2 levels, guaranteeing perfect room conditions in commercial buildings with substantial room depth and high occupancy fluctuations.
Auf der "SPS – Smart Production Solutions" 2019 zeigt Siemens branchenspezifische Anwendungen sowie Zukunftstechnologien für die digitale Transformation der Fertigungs- und Prozessindustrie. Im Mittelpunkt des über 4.000 Quadratmeter großen Messestands stehen neue Produkte, Lösungen und Services aus dem Digital-Enterprise-Portfolio, welches die Verschmelzung der realen und der virtuellen Welt ermöglicht.
Am 26. November, dem ersten Messetag der SPS, begrüßte Klaus Helmrich zur Siemens-Pressekonferenz. Die Pressekonferenz fand im Convention Center der Messe statt. Herr Helmrich hat über die aktuellen Digitalisierungstrends und die nächste Stufe der digitalen Transformation in der Fertigungs- und Prozessindustrie gesprochen.
- New devices for electrical installations in industrial and infrastructure environments with a lower nominal current of 0.1 to 0.4 amperes
- Firmware update with improved control and diagnostic functions
- Failsafe group shutdown function without additional wiring
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is adding four new devices to its portfolio of Simatic ET 200SP motor starters, which can be used to start electric drives with a power output from 0.1 to 0.4 amperes (A). These types of drives are found in fans and coolant pumps, for example. The compact motor starters are installed in control cabinets and are designed to start single and three-phase motors of machines and systems, protecting them against overloads and short-circuits. They are each available in standard and safety variants.
- Exact recording of energy consumption and electrical parameters
- Secure data transfer over existing communication networks
- Flexible use in industrial and commercial buildings as well as data centers
Siemens Smart Infrastructure has added the 7KM PAC3220 and 7KM PAC3120 measuring devices to its Sentron power monitoring portfolio. These devices capture energy and system data from buildings, infrastructure and industrial facilities and transfer them via standard communication protocols to higher-level energy management, automation and IoT systems. This data can then be used to identify energy hogs, detect system malfunctions as early as possible and proactively prevent downtimes. This allows companies to sustainably boost their energy efficiency and system availability. The new devices offer higher accuracy than the previous models and have a new design.
- 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.
- 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.
At this year’s European Utility Week (EUW) in Paris, Siemens Smart Infrastructure will demonstrate how it is driving energy intelligence across supply and demand. By helping shape the energy ecosystem across buildings, industry and the grid, Siemens is supporting government, cities and businesses with their sustainability goals. The company will focus on four topics that support the energy transition: sustainable grids, smart distribution, the Internet of Energy and grid edge.
By 2035, more than 50 percent of electricity is expected to be generated by renewables. In parallel, electricity consumption is forecast to double by 2050. Megatrends such as increasing urbanization and climate change are driving the need for electrification and decarbonization. Meanwhile, new applications in software and digitalization are making grids smarter and more efficient, creating new business models.
- New Grid Diagnostic Suite offers unique comprehensive insights
- Gain a grid-wide view of energy automation systems
- Market launch of initially four cloud-enabled applications
- Enhances cost efficiency and availability of smart grids
- Support through digitalization in increasingly complex power grids
Siemens is presenting for the first time its new Grid Diagnostic Suite at the European Utility Week in Paris. The Grid Diagnostic Suite initially includes four cloud-based applications which collect data from new or existing field devices for protection, distribution automation and power quality. These data are stored and analyzed in the cloud. This requires almost no additional engineering effort. Distribution grid operators and operators of electricity grids in industrial parks can quickly tap into useful information from devices installed anywhere in the smart grid. This will enable grid faults, for example, to be detected at an early stage and quickly rectified. After information is collected, vulnerabilities can be identified, and necessary measures can be implemented before any damage occurs. In this way, Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the Grid Diagnostic Suite enhance the availability of power grids while enabling them to be operated cost-efficiently.
