Siemens Mobility GmbH and VTG Rail Europe GmbH signed a contract to test the innovative Brake Monitoring System (BMS) for automated brake testing of freight trains to prove the system’s operational capability. The BMS ensures an automatic brake test on each wagon of a train. The expected efficiencies generated for freight operators will result in a great market potential across Europe.
- Shorter development and commissioning times
- Software libraries enable standardization
- Commissioning tests on virtual test rack
The new Sinumerik One CNC generation is at the heart of digital transformation for machine tools. As a digital native, the controller features not only a new hardware platform, but also versatile software for the creation of a digital twin. It closes the gap between the virtual and the real world and helps to reduce development and commissioning times considerably.
- New Offering Seamlessly Combines Next-Generation Virtual Platform, Hardware Emulation, and FPGA Prototyping Technologies to Help Accelerate Verification Cycles
- Expansion of the Customer-Proven Veloce Family Sets New Standard in Hardware-assisted Verification
Siemens Digital Industries Software today unveiled its next-generation Veloce™ hardware-assisted verification system for the rapid verification of highly sophisticated, next-generation Integrated Circuit (IC) designs. This is the first complete, integrated offering that combines best-in-class virtual platform, hardware emulation, and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) prototyping technologies, and paves the way to leverage the latest powerful hardware-assisted verification methodologies.
- Improvement of machine tool availability through predictive maintenance with Analyze MyMachine /Condition
- Analyze MyMachine /Condition for Sinumerik Edge creates a mechanical fingerprint of the machine tool
- Condition evaluation, analysis and comparison of all connected machines using the Mindsphere application
Siemens is extending its edge application Analyze MyMachine /Condition with a corresponding Mindsphere application and thus demonstrating how edge computing and cloud computing can be intelligently combined. The Sinumerik Edge Application Analyze MyMachine /Condition, which the company presented last year at the EMO, uses high-frequency CNC data to create the mechanical fingerprint of a machine tool. In the application, users can capture and evaluate various parameters such as stiffness, friction, and backlash in the individual axes with the help of flexibly configurable measurement series. The measurement results can then be visualized and compared with reference data.
- Support reliable power supply for 965,000 citizens in Stockholm area
Ellevio, Sweden’s second largest grid company, has contracted Siemens Smart Infrastructure to deliver a new grid control system for its distribution network. The new grid control system based on Spectrum Power 7 will improve handling of increased network complexities, abnormalities, and security threats, whilst enabling improved ease and use for operators. Ellevio's control center in Karlstad is responsible for providing a reliable energy supply for 965,000 citizens in Sweden. The grid control is set up in a flexible multi-site operation with a main control center in Karlstad and a supporting control center in Stockholm for back-up.
- 2-loop fire control panel connects up to 252 devices
- EN 54-23 compliant alarm devices and dedicated peripherals
- Time-saving tools such as auto configuration and on-board web server
- License free programming
With the launch of the new version of the fire protection system, Cerberus FIT, Siemens Smart Infrastructure expands its offering for the small to medium-sized buildings market. Various small to medium-sized buildings can now be covered with a simple and cost-efficient solution. Cerberus FIT maximizes fire safety, thanks to greater functionality and enhanced productivity for those working on protecting the buildings. The intuitive interface as well as the auto configuration tool allow the technician to install, commission and maintain the system in a fast, easy and reliable way. With the delayed alarm function staff will be informed first to identify what an alarm is about in order to assess the situation. This ensures business continuity and reduces disturbances to occupants of smaller buildings such as small-to-medium sized hotels, kindergartens or nursing homes.
- New software for omnidirectional control
- 360-degree freedom of movement for AGVs
- Innovative steering system implemented with ebm-papst
Siemens has expanded Simove, the scalable automation solution for Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV)
applications, to include functionality for omnidirectional control. The new software supports unrestricted freedom of movement for AGVs. Together with Simatic
Micro-Drive, the new member of the Siemens converter family specifically for
the safety extra-low voltage range, plant and machine builders can create universal
and flexible systems. Together with partner ebm-papst an initial application example has been realized: a steering system that uses Simatic Micro-Drive,
the universal Simatic controller and the new control software from Simove. The
compact steering system features a special gearbox where the speeds of both
motors in the steering system are overlaid. This means that the steering system
does not require moving cables. The result is 360-degree rotational movement of
the wheel and therefore of the system. In addition, the high transmission in the
driving and steering direction provides a high level of control accuracy for
the system. Thanks to the integrated safety functions of the Simatic Micro-Drive,
safe control and monitoring of the integrated motors is ensured at all times.
- Continuous monitoring of energy consumption in the terminal building and at the shore power connecting points
- IoT data platform enables data storage in MindSphere and easy remote access
- Systematic energy data management ensures efficient operations
The Port of Kiel commissioned Siemens Smart Infrastructure to implement a cloud-based power monitoring solution for its shore power system. The shore power system, also from Siemens, will cover the electricity demand of all ships at the Ostseekai and Schwedenkai with green power while they are berthed at the Port of Kiel. This saves more than 8,000 tons of CO2 per year. The new power monitoring solution makes it possible to measure the energy consumption in the shore power operations building and at the Ostseekai and Schwedenkai connecting points, and store the data in MindSphere, the cloud-based IoT system from Siemens. The operators have access to all relevant electrical values at any time and from anywhere, allowing them to determine consumption, identify faults, avoid downtimes, and plan maintenance routines better.
