New Simogear Reluctance Geared Motor – compact, rugged, and energy efficient

• High dynamics due to low moment of inertia
• Easy to commission – simply enter the motor code into the converter
• Extremely high efficiency and low losses especially in partial load
• Safe operation due to low motor temperature

Siemens is extending its Simogear portfolio with a new synchronous-reluctance drive system consisting of Simogear standard gear unit, Simotics reluctance motor and a Sinamics frequency converter for controlling speed.

TIA Portal engineering – goes cloud!

• Fast access to project data through storage in a cloud-based FileShare
• Fast, flexible access to pre-installed engineering environments
• Integration of the widest range of PC and tablet hardware into the development process
• The TIA Portal moves into the cloud: flexible use of the engineering framework in various phases of development

With the TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation Portal) in the cloud, Siemens is expanding the options of using the engineering framework even more flexible in the various phases of planning, engineering and commissioning.

Optical reader optimizes production processes and supply chains

• Powerful, flexible accessories and easy handling
• Additional Gigabit Ethernet interface for diagnostic and service purposes
