Panel Builder System Integrator

SiemensApril 10, 2018

Siemens will present a solution for detecting anomalies in industrial networks at the Hannover Messe 2018. "Industrial Anomaly Detection" enables security-related incidents, such as unauthorized intrusions and malware, to be identified and countermeasures to be taken. The software is pre-installed on an industrial PC (IPC), and easily integrated into industrial environments. Alternatively, it will be enabled to run on network components from Siemens, such as the multiservice platform Ruggedcom RX1500 with Ruggedcom APE. The solution is especially suitable for companies in the automobile production, aerospace, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and water/waste water industries.

Industrial Anomaly Detection begins by establishing transparency regarding the devices integrated into industrial networks (such as controllers and HMI devices) and the software installed on them. Having achieved that, the second step is to identify vulneabilities within devices on the network by matching assets with known vulnerabilities (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures/CVEs) and identifying other “network hygiene” configuration issues that need to be closed. The third step is to continuously monitor the devices' communication behavior. The system collects the data passively, so it does not have any effect on production. It supports the products of all the current automation manufacturers and their protocols. If the solution detects deviations that might indicate unauthorized intrusions or misconfigurations, it automatically sends an alarm to the users. Depending on the criticality, the incidents can be dealt with by on-site experts or external security specialists.

The anomaly detection system also uses artificial intelligence (AI), which configures the system by a process of self-learning: The solution automatically analyzes the data traffic in the network in a "learning phase", so that it can then detect anomalies, which might indicate intrusion or data theft by hackers.

"Industrial Anomaly Detection" is an important complement to the range of industrial security products and services offered by Siemens, which is based on the holistic Defense-in-Depth concept.

The Automated Future of Material Removal

The Automated Future of Material RemovalAutomating a deburring or surface finishing application is a smart, responsible, and effective way to improve a manufacturing process. There is a serious need for the automation of manual material removal and deburring tasks to help improve employees’ health, combat manufacturing labor shortages, and increase product consistency and quality.

The historical roadblocks for automated material removal are melting away as return on investment gets faster, more integrators and manufacturers cultivate hands-on experience, and technology advances to make processes easier.

When To Use Multi-Function Safety Relays

Multi-Function Safety RelaysBy Lenny Filipkowski, Product Manager, Industrial Components, AutomationDirect

Many machines and robots require safety circuits to stop all or part of operation in the event of an emergency. Safety circuits are also used to keep all or part of a machine or robot from running while there is human activity in close proximity, either for normal operations or maintenance.

These safety circuits are typically configured using safety relays, or a safety-rated PLC or other safety-rated controller. But in many cases, multi-function safety relays are a better option (Figure 1). A multi-function safety relay is a configurable device with multiple inputs and outputs.

Williams Advanced Engineering, Aerofoil Energy and Inovo Join Forces on New Robotic Test Programme to Improve Supermarket Fridge Efficiency

Williams Advanced EngineeringWilliams Advanced Engineering (WAE), Aerofoil Energy and Inovo Robotics are working together on an innovative new R&D programme that uses robots to further improve the energy efficiency of supermarket fridges.

Based at WAE’s site in Grove, Oxfordshire, the pioneering new initiative sees Inovo’s collaborative robots – called ‘cobots’ – repeatedly opening and closing the doors of test fridges to emulate real-world supermarket trading conditions. These fridges feature the revolutionary F1-inspired Aerofoil shelf edge technology along with Aerofoil Energy’s new “Vortex” energy efficient fridge technologies.
