These include control units, such as the ESX-3XL, displays in the VSX family, or pressure transmitters such as the digiSE ...


Industrial switches for high-availability networks

Switches serve as pilots of data traffic in Ethernet networks. At SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg, Lapp is presenting its own models for the first time under the name ETHERLINE® ACCESS. Their performance characteristics are impressive, even to demanding users in industry. Accordingly, the critical reconfiguration time needed for communication to be re-established after an interruption is only 20 milliseconds with 250 active components in the network. Besides this, the switches are fully equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic and redundancy features. Lapp has decided to offer its own switches b ...


New servo cables for Europe and North America

An important feature of servo cables is their low-capacitance and low-attenuation design as this enables them to bridge long distances without any loss of power. The two new cables are exemplary in this regard and they will be presented by LAPP at the SPS IPC Drives 2017 trade fair in Nuremberg in hall 2, stand 310.  ÖLFLEX® SERVO 7TCE: The servo cable is suitable for servo drives from many leading manufacturers and has UL TC-ER and Flexible Motor Supply listings. The internal structure is complex with a core insulation made of XLPE and an outer sheath made of a special thermoplastic elastomer ...


Unintentional aesthetics

"The architectural designs of Konrad Frey are characterised by the fact that their form is a consequence of function", says the Graz-based art historian and architectural theoretician Anselm Wagner. But there is more to the designs of this architect who was born in Vienna in 1934 and later worked in Graz and London – they represent solar-house architecture in the best sense of the term. As early as 1972, Konrad Frey designed Austria's first solar house together with Florian Beigel. The design was based on his scientific research into the use of solar energy as of the late 1960s. ...

Women’s voices against prejudice under the monarchy

They were born in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, migrated, wrote manifold texts going against the grain of mainstream society in the 19th and early 20th centuries and have been widely ignored by literary history: with the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the German studies scholar Alexandra Millner researched migrant women writers and assembled them in a database. In the Habsburg Monarchy, it was uncommon for women to get or actively seek good education, become writers and find a readership for their works. It came as a surprise therefore when Alexandra Millner from the University ...


Women’s voices against prejudice under the monarchy

In the Habsburg Monarchy, it was uncommon for women to get or actively seek good education, become writers and find a readership for their works. It came as a surprise therefore when Alexandra Millner from the University of Vienna found a considerable number of women writers, no longer known today, who were extremely productive during the time of the Dual Monarchy in a project Millner conducted with the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF. These women had experienced migration, frequently wrote against the grain of mainstream society and sometimes enjoyed a large readership. In her previo ...


Modular diversity? Extended range of connector housings for the ODU-MAC®

Mühldorf a. Inn. ODU?s flagship product, the ODU-MAC® with its well-established spindle locking, is now also available in sizes 2 to 4, all meeting tightness class IP65. The robust metal outdoor solution with its ergonomic quick-release fastener system thus opens up a new field of application. The ODU-MAC® can be used wherever the locking solution requires a high degree of tightness in a small space. This tight standard solution manages at least 30,000 locking cycles, after which the spindle screw can be easily replaced. As this just requires a single screw, the replacement process can be quic ...


New hope for butterfly children

The Greek term lysis means "dissolution" and is familiar from words such as "electrolysis". In the case of the genetic disease epidermolysis bullosa it refers to severe skin damage. Sufferers are called "butterfly children" because their skin is as sensitive as the wings of a butterfly. Currently, treatment is limited to wound care, and the ailment cannot be cured. Potential treatment via genetic therapy is under investigation in clinical studies, but even if the studies show promise, the treatment will not be applicable to all variants of the disease. Now there i ...


Neue Hoffnung für Schmetterlingskinder

Der griechische Begriff "Lysis" bedeutet "Auflösung" und ist bekannt aus Wörtern wie "Elektrolyse". Im Fall der Erbkrankheit "Epidermolysis bullosa" bezieht er sich auf die Auflösung der Haut: Die Haut wird empfindlich wie ein Schmetterlingsflügel, Betroffene werden "Schmetterlingskinder" genannt. Die Behandlung ist derzeit auf die Versorgung der Wunden beschränkt, eine Heilung ist nicht möglich. Behandlungsmöglichkeiten mit Gentherapie werden gerade in klinischen Studien geprüft, sind aber selbst im Erfolgsfall nicht auf alle Varianten der Kra ...

From spectacle to trauma alleviation

Voodoo means deity or spirit. – Voodoo practitioners in the Dominican Republic usually speak of ''misterios''. People possessed by such beings are at the heart of the voodoo religion. Under the influence of Hollywood clichés, one associates voodoo with mysterious rites and horror stories. But many religions include the concept of being possessed by spirits in various ways to this day. The difference lies in how religions deal with this phenomenon. Whereas Christian and Muslim priests seek to banish possessing spirits, voodoo is about accepting them and integrating them into ...
