Enhancing the efficiency of electromechanical design with online portals

14.03.2012
The Siemens Industry Automation Division is providing support for the work of electromechanical designers and plant engineers with a series of improved internet services. Data and materials made available free of charge over the Internet can help achieve significant cost and time savings for electromechanical engineering departments. In the "Planning Efficiency" center in the Siemens booth at the Hanover Fair 2012, interested visitors will have the opportunity to ask the experts in detail about the online portals available and the concept behind them.

Internet services designed to improve the efficiency of electromechanical design processes will be presented by the Siemens Industry Automation Division in the "Planning Efficiency" center at the Siemens booth in Hall 9 during this year's Hanover Fair.


"Planning Efficiency" is all about rapid product selection, easy access to high-quality product data and certificates as well as improved process efficiency. Under this banner, the Siemens Industry Automation Division will be presenting a range of online portals and tools engineered to significantly improve the efficiency of electromechanical design through simplified access to high-quality data. In a dedicated "Planning Efficiency " area of the Siemens booth in Hall 9 at this year's Hanover Fair, experts from the company will be on hand to explain the new online portals. Interested visitors will have the chance to gain an insight into the comprehensive range of data on offer using the CAx Onlinegenerator, the services of the Siemens Industry Online Support Portal and the revamped Industry Mall, which unites the Siemens Industry online shops under a single umbrella.

The new "Planning Efficiency" concept kicks in right from the product selection stage in the Industry Mall, and provides active support to users in the collation of suitable components and systems from the comprehensive Siemens portfolio. The specifications entered during product selection – such as information about the system environment – are used by the Sirius system configurator to configure suitable elements such as motor feeders. The tool also collates the relevant 3D models, 2D dimensional drawings, device circuit diagrams and data sheets for the selected configuration on the basis of the product numbers, and places them ready for downloading. In the next stage, the user can import the product numbers into the CAx Onlinegenerator, where additional planning-relevant data and documentation is made available.

The CAx online generator is the central tool for mechanical and electrotechnical design processes. This database can be accessed free of charge through the Siemens Industry Online Support Portal and is updated on a daily basis. Using the CAx Onlinegenerator, designers are able to access data and documentation appertaining to more than 60,000 products from the Siemens automation portfolio. Data relating to all the products is offered in up to twelve different categories, including for instance EDZ (Eplan Data Zip) data for Eplan Electric P8, e³.series product databases such as device circuit diagrams, connection diagrams and 3D models. The Siemens online database also contains CAD/CAE project engineering data for further processing in a range of different engineering applications. The ability to transfer data directly into CAE/CAD applications at the press of a button can mean time savings of up to 80 percent for designers. The project engineering work involved in planning a complete control cabinet, for instance, can be cut by over eight hours or a complete man day. The range of services offered by the CAx Onlinegenerator is completed by characteristic curves, data sheets, dimensional drawings, 2D drawings and certificates – including UL for the USA, CCC for China and Ghost for the CIS States – as well as manuals and operating instructions. In addition, all the documents are stored in the database in up to ten different language versions.

The My Documentation Manager, also part of the Siemens Industry Online Support service alongside the CAx Onlinegenerator, supports users in the collation of required technical documentation. Using the online tool, reviewed Siemens Industry Automation manuals can be individually adjusted to individual requirements, allowing users to access individual chapters from resources relating to different products and product groups. These can then be individually collated to suit the specific project. This could produce a manual for parameterization of the ET200SP, for instance, containing characteristic curves for products from the Sirius spectrum and specific variants of a Sitop power supply. The finished manual is then made available for downloading in a range of formats. An updating service additionally informs users of any changes to content, ensuring that manuals remain fully up to date.

Im Focus: Vollmond-Dreierlei am 31. Januar 2018

Am 31. Januar 2018 fallen zum ersten Mal seit dem 30. Dezember 1982 "Supermond" (ein Vollmond in Erdnähe), "Blutmond" (eine totale Mondfinsternis) und "Blue Moon" (ein zweiter Vollmond im Kalendermonat) zusammen - Beobachter im deutschen Sprachraum verpassen allerdings die sichtbaren Phasen der Mondfinsternis.

Nach den letzten drei Vollmonden am 4. November 2017, 3. Dezember 2017 und 2. Januar 2018 ist auch der bevorstehende Vollmond am 31. Januar 2018 ein...

Im Focus: Maschinelles Lernen im Quantenlabor

Auf dem Weg zum intelligenten Labor präsentieren Physiker der Universitäten Innsbruck und Wien ein lernfähiges Programm, das eigenständig Quantenexperimente entwirft. In ersten Versuchen hat das System selbständig experimentelle Techniken (wieder)entdeckt, die heute in modernen quantenoptischen Labors Standard sind. Dies zeigt, dass Maschinen in Zukunft auch eine kreativ unterstützende Rolle in der Forschung einnehmen könnten.

In unseren Taschen stecken Smartphones, auf den Straßen fahren intelligente Autos, Experimente im Forschungslabor aber werden immer noch ausschließlich von...

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Ein Atom dünn: Physiker messen erstmals mechanische Eigenschaften zweidimensionaler Materialien

Die dünnsten heute herstellbaren Materialien haben eine Dicke von einem Atom. Sie zeigen völlig neue Eigenschaften und sind zweidimensional – bisher bekannte Materialien sind dreidimensional aufgebaut. Um sie herstellen und handhaben zu können, liegen sie bislang als Film auf dreidimensionalen Materialien auf. Erstmals ist es Physikern der Universität des Saarlandes um Uwe Hartmann jetzt mit Forschern vom Leibniz-Institut für Neue Materialien gelungen, die mechanischen Eigenschaften von freitragenden Membranen atomar dünner Materialien zu charakterisieren. Die Messungen erfolgten mit dem Rastertunnelmikroskop an Graphen. Ihre Ergebnisse veröffentlichen die Forscher im Fachmagazin Nanoscale.

Zweidimensionale Materialien sind erst seit wenigen Jahren bekannt. Die Wissenschaftler André Geim und Konstantin Novoselov erhielten im Jahr 2010 den...
