Anticipating silicon solar cells with significantly improved efficiency

Theoretical calculations indicate that under certain conditions silicon can endow solar cells with a much higher efficiency. Small silicon clusters may provide a source of accordingly modified silicon. However, to date these clusters have not been accessible in soluble form, a prerequisite for flexible processing. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich have now discovered […]

All-compatible drives offer built-in safety and IOT connectivity

The new DCS880 DC drive series is built on the all-compatible drive platform which ensures all ABB variable speed drives (VSDs) share common features and tools and can be operated in the same way. The drive integrates certified Safe Torque Off (STO) safety functionality as standard and is also enabled for compatibility with the Industrial […]
