Sinema Server software from Siemens shortens troubleshooting and response times by quickly and easily identifying problems in Industrial Ethernet networks and connected terminal devices.


The software diagnoses Industrial Ethernet networks and displays data in tabular or graphical views. The program continuously logs and archives network activities of Siemens and third-party devices using standard protocols such as SNMP and PROFINET (DCP and LLDP).

Information is viewed on Web browsers, including Internet Explorer and Firefox, or displayed in an HMI / SCADA system using an OPC interface. COM/DCOM and OPC UA are both supported.

An automatic discovery function identifies devices and their features, including topological interconnections. Graphical views and network statistics are generated from the data. Standard diagnostic screens can be enhanced by uploading floor plans to personalize the display of device positions

Device alarms, changes to devices and other events are cyclically recorded and displayed in tabular form with date, time and priority. Critical alarms and other data can be passed on to other systems by e-mail or retrieved from the built-in OPC server.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
