Increased security through encrypted data transmission and extended password protection
Timer program for presence simulation
- Control of SONOS speakers and Philips HUE LED lighting system
IP Control Center (IPCC) N 152, Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s compact visualization controller designed to control standard rooms and complex building management functions in small and medium-sized commercial buildings, is now available with new V4 firmware. The updated IPCC combines more functionalities for customized system integration and installation as well as maximum building and data protection without having to rely on additional software. Extended security measures, such as encrypted data transmission and presence simulation as well as other functional options such as individual scene settings, have also been implemented. In addition, new interfaces enable the control of SONOS loudspeakers and the Philips HUE lighting system. As part of the GAMMA instabus building control portfolio, a range of products based on the international KNX standard, the new IPCC visualization controller makes it possible to control KNX devices faster and more easily. It provides intuitive operation and display of KNX systems on a customizable, fully graphical user interface for controlling standard room functions as well as complex building management functions from a central panel, PC or mobile device.
- Higher light comfort due to energy-saving switching and dimming of up to 20 DALI ECGs per channel in broadcast mode
- Personalized control with “tunable white” for Human Centric Lighting (HCL)
- Easy installation, low maintenance expenses and energy efficient switching and dimming
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is launching its new KNX switch and dim actuator N 525D11, 2x DALI Broadcast. The rail-mounted device for installation in distribution boards has two Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) outputs. Thanks to a control performance of up to 20 DALI electrical ballasts (ECG) per DALI output, the new actuator offers energy efficiency and low commissioning costs during broadcast mode where all connected ECG, for example lamps, are controlled simultaneously. The new device has a wide range of functions to increase comfort for room users, such as color temperature control and configurable dimming curves. In addition, the actuator is able to store light scenes, send status or error messages, and provide switching cycles as well as an operating hour counter. The new device offers the best conditions for optimum lighting ratios in the room. In combination with presence detectors, which control brightness fully automatically, a simultaneous control of brightness and color temperature can be achieved.
- Reduced amount of copper lowers material costs
- Smart ventilation system ensures optimal heat dissipation
- Digital engineering and new system concept shorten project lead times for switchgear manufacturers
Infrastructure introduces the Alpha 3200 Eco power distribution board. Thanks to a new system, it requires one-third less
copper. The new power distribution board features a main busbar in the middle
of the board instead of at the top or the bottom, allowing devices to be
attached directly. Previously, additional connection rails made of copper were
needed. This new design significantly reduces material costs and installation
efforts. It also allows for more flexible installation of the associated Alpha
assembly kits with protection, switching and measuring devices. Overall, this
results in more room for valuable functions, such as collecting energy data and
switching states, as well as for connecting the power distribution board to
digital building management systems. A new ventilation system with two cooling
circuits provides for optimal heat dissipation and energy yield.
In an era of consumer-oriented production and economic uncertainty, industrial companies are constantly facing new challenges. We're integrating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, Edge and Cloud computing, and Industrial 5G into the Digital Enterprise. This is how we're enabling the intelligence that’s required for the production of customized products. On Wednesday, March 4, the CEOs of Digital Industries presented technological innovations as well as current product highlights. They showed numerous specific examples to demonstrate how companies need to think and act in ecosystems in order to implement Industrie 4.0. We also demonstrated how we’re combining the latest technologies with our domain expertise to make our solutions for the digital transformation more and more market-specific.
Market research firm Navigant Research has
recently ranked Siemens Smart Infrastructure as a leading provider of distributed
energy resources management systems (DERMS). The “Navigant Research Leaderboard:
DERMS Vendors” report assessed the strategy and execution of 16 vendors for
distributed energy resources and grid management.
- Real-time analytics to create dynamic workplaces
- Designed to improve employee productivity and operational efficiency
- Data-driven insights on space utilization to optimize real estate assets
- To be shown at Light & Building trade fair in Germany, Frankfurt a.M. (March 8-13, 2020)
Siemens Smart Infrastructure
has launched a smart building suite designed to create more efficient and
flexible workplaces where people are at the core. The suite of IoT (Internet of
Things) enabled devices, applications and services turn offices into a
competitive advantage for companies. Employees are empowered with greater
choice and control in the workplace, including picking their own optimal
temperature setting, pleasant lighting conditions and find available rooms for
their spontaneous meetings. The suite consists of complementary Siemens
technologies and allows building management systems to respond intelligently to
user input and environmental data. Now, workspaces can adapt to employees’
needs with real-time analytics continuously learning from user input and
picking up behavioral patterns.
same time, powerful data analytics give insights into how the spaces are being
used to make better decisions around space optimization and real estate portfolio management.
- For the first time, new electrical installation devices combine protection and measurement functions in a single unit
- The latest energy monitoring software can now be fully integrated into the Desigo CC building management system
- New Sentron “powermind” app allows cloud-based energy data analysis
At this year’s Light+Building trade show, Siemens Smart Infrastructure will show the first energy management solution that holistically captures energy data in buildings. It collects data all the way to the final circuit without any additional wiring or space requirements. All electrical data – from the power feed-in to the socket outlet – can then be seamlessly integrated into building management systems and analyzed by cloud-based applications. This makes the electrical infrastructure an integral part of smart buildings that are connected via the Internet of Things (IoT). Operators and users gain maximum transparency over their energy flows and benefit from end-to-end digitalization.
- Enhanced reliability and efficiency through easier energy monitoring without data cables
- Suitable for the transmission of more than double the electricity of comparable systems
- Modular design for flexible planning and cost-effective expansion
At this year’s Light+Building, Siemens Smart Infrastructure is introducing LData, a busbar trunking system specially designed for data centers wanting to improve their efficiency, availability and adaptability. The more internet traffic, mobile users as well as Internet of Things connections increase, the more data has to be processed. That is why high-performance data centers are emerging as the backbone of a digital society. These data centers must offer the highest degree of availability to protect critical data as well as business-critical applications and industrial processes. At the same time, they must be energy efficient as well as easy to plan, install and expand. The energy distribution system plays a major role in this regard.
