Air collector and thermal storage materials for air conditioning in buildings

Profound changes are occurring in the energy and construction sector, so traditional business models are no longer sufficient. The interaction of smart materials, sustainable energy-efficient systems, decentralized storage and the use of renewable energies and existing heat sources is becoming increasingly important. The acquisition and evaluation of measurement data forms a sound basis for improving energy efficiency. Based on these data, models for energy balancing can be created, and the interaction between energy demand and availability can be optimized.

At the Fraunhofer ICT energy campus in Pfinztal, individual thermal storage systems tailored to the respective application profile are developed and tested to increase energy efficiency. For example, in the STARK project the air conditioning of a building is implemented. Here, a 100m² collector array is used in combination with a zeolite and latent heat storage device. In energy-specific processes, the process data are recorded, evaluated and optimized with modeling and simulation tools.

We will demonstrate:

• Sorption and latent heat storage materials for active and passive thermal management

• A hybrid component, consisting of insulating and storage material, which combines the insulating properties of foams with the heat-storing and tempering properties of phase change materials (PCM)

• Lightweight air collectors in combination with zeolite and PCM storage devices, which enable the supply of heat and cold at any time

• Modeling and simulation of heat storage systems in their applications

• Presentation: STARK project – Solar Thermal System for Room Air Conditioning, Christian Teicht, B0 Forum

JAKOB miniature couplings create precision

The miniature couplings from JAKOB are designed as servo compensating couplings for the offset or the axial displacement of two axes. For the different applications such. For tachographs, NC-axes, stepper motors, potentiometers, robot drives, linear units, handling devices, angle encoders or servo drives, various designs are available. The shaft is fastened by clamping ring or threaded pins. The miniature couplings are available as bellows couplings, elastomer couplings or cross slide couplings. As bellows couplings they are absolutely play and maintenance-free and designed for the transmission of high speeds. They are characterized by a high torsional rigidity and a low mass moment of inertia. Thus, the angular true, backlash-free transmission of the rotational movement is possible. The compact elastomer miniature couplings as pluggable, backlash-free and flexible shaft couplings can compensate for slightly larger shaft offsets. They are electrically insulating and have a good vibration-damping behavior. The advantages of the also electrically insulating cross slide coupling are in addition to a very short length, a large displacement capacity, low restoring forces, the pluggability and a resulting arbitrary combination of different bore diameter. In normal operation, the couplings are maintenance-free and with proper installation, the JAKOB miniature couplings achieve an almost unlimited service life. Due to the proven modular system and the storage of the common diameters shortest delivery times are guaranteed.

On-Board Networking Solution for Rail-Train, Metro and Tram

When train cars are switched, re-configure network settings is normally required. Thus, railway operators need to have enough knowledge of Ethernet. This not only increases the cost of labor but also result in additional time.

Making it flexible for easy maintenance is biggest challenge for on-board network solution.
In most of train application, many train cars will be shifted according to different destination, which often becomes a maintenance issue when any car changes. As the different car devices were set with different IP address that would need to migrate into the same IP without any manual setting to keep the original train network.

Lantech Train Discovery Protocol (LTDP)
With LTDP-aware DHCP server, Lantech EN50155 switches can discover the current IP addresses and enable the switch to exchange the IP address when any car is merged. LTDP can also react on the link failure or node failure to keep the original IP range and maintain the remaining network function until the replacement is in place. It can also keep the config file when switch is swapped.

The video below explains how LTDP works.

Brickmakers GmbH launch smartphone app for parent counselling

Becoming a parent and establishing a family are not always easy tasks. Now, an app from Brickmakers GmbH can provide support, with round-the-clock counselling and tips on the rearing and education of children aged 0 to 5.   

“Parents today have to accomplish in just five years what previous generations of parents did in ten,” says Hans Bertram, a family researcher and professor of sociology at Humboldt University of Berlin.  Though there are many reasons for this, one of the most common is the desire to have a family and still pursue a professional career. This increases the demand for professional support in rearing and educating children during their preschool years. 

Less administration for parents and counsellors alike

In Switzerland, parents can get this support from regional parent counselling centres. A team of qualified counsellors is there to lend a helping hand to parents during their children’s first five years of life. Educational counselling and regular playgroups are just two from the wide range of services on offer. In order to continue devoting as much time as possible to the welfare of the children, the Parent Counselling Centre for the Greater Aarau Region (Mütter- und Väterberatung Region Aarau Plus) set itself the goal of automating its administrative processes using digitalisation. The solution was to develop an app that would run on iPhones, Android devices and the web. Launched in July 2018, the app enables parents to make appointments directly with their personal counsellors, something previously only possible over the phone or on the central website. To make this a reality, the counsellor’s schedules were digitalised and linked to the app. Parents can use the app to find free slots in real time and make booking enquiries, which the counsellors can accept even when not in the office. The parents get immediate feedback on whether their bookings were successful. In future, the system is to be expanded to include appointment cancellations and postponements. 

Practical application 

Koblenz-based Brickmakers GmbH also took the special situation of parents into account when developing the app: it was conceived in such a way that it can be operated with one hand, enabling parents holding a baby in one arm to book their next appointment or get valuable tips from a counsellor in chat mode.

A child profile rounds off the services on offer. If they wish, parents can use this function to store any data on their children that could be useful for counselling. In this way, the parent counselling centre can attend to the child’s needs even when the dedicated contact person is not available.    

As Doris Feusi – who is head of the Parent Counselling Centre for the Greater Aarau Region and herself a counsellor – says:“The new app simplifies our administrative procedures and enables parents to communicate with us quickly. That means that we, and the parents, have more time to focus on what is really important: spending quality time with the children.”

Web App Delivery with oneclick™

The latest extension of the Workspace Provisioning and Streaming Platform oneclick™ is Web App Delivery. Thanks to this function, it is possible to make web applications and websites, e.g. internal sharepoints, ERP systems or industry software, securely available via mobile devices. By connecting to oneclick™, web apps are secured with the security mechanisms of the platform.

With oneclick™ Web App Delivery, users not only secure their internal web applications but they are also able to integrate additional websites into the consistent workspace of oneclick™. The registration is carried out via an automated log-in process. Hence, the user only requires one password to enter the oneclick™ platform and will be logged into every integrated web application automatically, as soon as it is opened.

oneclick™ is an immediately applicable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for the deployment of digital workspaces. Web apps, native applications, desktops and data are centralised from different environments – e.g. on-premise, cloud or web – in the platform and are delivered securely to the users via streaming.

“Internal company web applications contain sensitive information and are thus especially worth protecting. Usually this applies to legacy web applications that are not being developed further and therefore do not conform to essential security standards anymore. It takes a lot of effort to make such applications securely and mobile accessible for employees”, says Florian Bodner, CIO of oneclick AG. “With oneclick Web App Delivery, we offer an ideal solution for this use case. Our platform simplifies the mobile access to web applications and secures them at the same time.”

Thanks to oneclick™ Web App Delivery, the user only connects to the oneclick™ platform instead of directly connecting to the web application or the associated data they wish to access. The web application is opened in an isolated environment and will be displayed to the user via an encrypted stream.
