Pressure transmitters for remote commissioning of functional safety

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018 von admin

Siemens presented Sitrans P320/420, the first pressure transmitter on the market to feature remote safety handling reducing commissioning time in applications requiring functional safety.

Via Simatic Process Device Manager (PDM) the safety integrity level (SIL) devices will be commissioned: rather than manually attending to each individual device across the facility, operators can commission transmitters from the control room. This next generation of pressure transmitters was developed according to IEC 61508 standard for the use in SIL 2/3.

Siemens extends synchronous-reluctance drive systems

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 von admin

Siemens is extending its portfolio of Simotics synchronous-reluctance motors to include the two new shaft heights, AH90 and AH225. With these new additions, the company is addressing calls from renowned manufacturers of pumps.

The motors are available in a power range of 0.55 to 45 kW, and now also with rated speeds of 1,500 and 3,000 min1. In conjunction with the recently launched Sinamics Reluctance Control License, precise encoderless closed-loop torque control is possible down to a standstill. The license enables field-oriented (vector) closed-loop control even when at a standstill – reliably eliminating the possibility of the synchronous motor “stalling” at any time even if the load inertia is not known.

Converter handling simplified by new module for wireless commissioning

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 von admin

The new Sinamics G120 Smart Access Module enables the wireless connection of mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones or laptops over WiFi to the Sinamics G120, Sinamics G120C and Sinamics G120P pump converter series, making for considerably simpler converter handling.

The module is set up in a few simple steps using a conventional web browser and any standard operating system. The web server functionality eliminates the need to download any additional software. With its intuitively structured user interface and menu guidance, the module offers outstanding user convenience.

Systematic flow metering – instrumentation for water supply in desert region

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 von admin

Aguas de Saltillo, the water utility company which serves the city of Saltillo in Mexico, is responsible for supplying drinking water to a population of around 850,000. To ensure a reliable supply in this arid desert city, the company relies on a water network which draws from several reservoirs with the aid of process instrumentation from Siemens. The Sitrans F M MAG 8000 electromagnetic flow meters used here are outstandingly robust, durable and reliable, as well as requiring minimal maintenance. Over a hundred of these devices have now been installed in the Aguas de Saltillo network.

Extensive additions to Siemens pump converter

Monday, November 27th, 2017 von admin
The Sinamics G120 is the universal drive to address the widest range of application requirements such as pump drives. Siemens is extending its portfolio of Sinamics G120 converters to include a new frame size, the FSG with voltage ranges from 380 to 480 volts (V) and from 500 to 690 V.
This addition means that the innovative PM240-2 Power Modules now cover the entire power range up to 250 kilowatts (kW). The extremely compact design and standard integrated optional features such as integrated DC link reactor or integrated filter to achieve category C2, enable substantial space and cost savings in the control cabinet.

Technical Paper: API-all-steel coupling with optimised performance

Friday, November 24th, 2017 von admin

Marc Egelwisse

In the Arpex all-steel multi-disk coupling the Flender GmbH, a 100 %-held Siemens subsidiary, is marketing a coupling that has proved itself over many years. Marc Egelwisse, product manager for Arpex couplings, and his team have further developed this series with a focus on three aspects:

  • increase in the specific power,
  • optimisation of the areas of application and
  • reduction of complexity of the type series.

The results show it was worth it:

  • 70 to 100 % higher torque,
  • 40 % greater angular misalignment,
  • 10 % higher maximum speed and
  • 14 instead of the 42 design variants existing hitherto.

“Because of the high torque capacity and the optimised speed and bore capacity of the new N-Arpex we are confident that we are offering what is at present the world’s best-performing coupling”, says Egelwisse.

Siemens: I/O extension module for converters

Thursday, October 26th, 2017 von admin

For the smallest converter in its portfolio, the Sinamics V20, Siemens is now offering an extension module for the capture and output of digital and analog signals. The Sinamics V20 I/O extension module is mounted on the converter using Plug&Play technology, and provides two additional input and output interfaces, each for 400 volts., increasing both the flexibility and the scope of the Sinamics V20. Using connecting ports on the front and back, the extension module can also be combined with additional accessories from the Sinamics V20 portfolio. These include for instance the BOP (Basic Operator Panel) and the BOP interface module.
