A quick-paced modern factory environment requires equally intelligent and high-tech equipment to track, monitor, and control various automated tasks. Because of this, Siemens has developed a series of converters - SINAMICS G120 and S120 - to handle more complex applications. Below, we’ll walk through the specific functionality and uses of these devices as well as the additional safety features built-in to maintain factory security. While we’ll be discussing these specific converters, it is important to understand that the same functionality can be found across a wide range of industrial converters, so don’t worry if you’re not specifically using a Siemens device.
The 2019 Engineers' Choice Grand Award-winning Siemens SINAMICS G120 Smart Access Module is a must-have accessory for interfacing with SINAMICS G120 variable frequency drives. Using any mobile device, users can securely connect to the G120 WiFi server then have the ability to commission a G120 drive, edit parameters, run in HAND mode, and more. The web server functionality eliminates the need to download additional software.
Dubbed rugged, handy and a powerhouse, the SIMATIC IPT1000 is a top of the line industrial tablet PC from Siemens that keeps up with the requirements of the modern factory. The tablet features practical functionalities and high CPU throughput, comparable to several consumer-level notebooks, giving you a powerful assistant as you move across the plant floor.
Digital Factory is a term that’s often thrown around frequently, and mostly related with concepts of Industrial Ethernet, IoT, and Machine Automation. However, it is vital to realize that the foundations for a Digital Factory are laid by solutions that aren’t judged by their magnitude but by their ability to improve the efficiency of the plant floor.
Monitoring and control equipment for operators is a necessity whenever machinery and plants need to be controlled. The challenge faced by system integrators is not limitation in terms of variety, but finding a solution that’s long-lasting and flexible according to changing needs.
Simatic HMI Panels have proven their value in almost all applications throughout the industrial sector. Their diversified portfolio demonstrates their ability to adapt to the ever-changing demands of all types of customers. Siemens has made a recent addition to its Simatic portfolio with the IP65-protected HMI Comfort Panels PRO, for visualization and automation without control cabinets.
Flexible control of production, efficient management of assets and synchronization of supply chains; who doesn’t want it all? More than being a want, all these factors are becoming a necessity as the competition gets fierce. Fortunately, Siemens has a solution for this as well, encapsulated by its range of RFID and code-reading systems that offer unrivaled integration, delivering highly effective identification solutions.
Siemens has always distinguished itself from the competition by providing solutions rather than products and it has done so once again with an addition to its Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) portfolio with a new drive series based synchronous-reluctance technology. The motor technology has an extremely high-efficiency and is integrated with a cutting-edge converter, both specifically harmonized to facilitate a cost-effective operation.
The age of digitalization has arrived. Industries are becoming highly reliant on the use of data for making day-to-day & long-term decisions, while robotics are gaining intelligence and are expanding from their previously-held portfolio of machines; all through the efficient & effective use of data.
The TIA Portal is an unprecedented innovation in a world heading quickly towards automation, offering unrestricted access to Siemen’s range of automation services. The latest version of Siemens TIA is tailored perfectly for companies that have put Industry 4.0 on their radar.
The latest version of the TIA Portal looks introduces features that are essential for both, machine builders and system integrators, in order to maintain competence & competitiveness within the organization.
