Open Web Automation (OWA): How logi.cals Reinvents the World of PLC Programming and Engineering
"Never Touch a Running System" is still a central unwritten law in machine and plant engineering. Once an application operates, function and programming are changed as little as possible. This is however no longer up-to-date, as companies with this approach in the automation and engineering process are increasingly lagging behind the requirements for flexibility, time-to-market and quality. Dynamizing the adaptation of the programming of a machine or plant to new tasks requires innovative engineering tools and environments. Open Web Automation (OWA) is logi.cals' answer as a flexible and dynamically evolving automation system that guides the user: from the plant model to configuration, engineering, automated testing, simulation, visualization and beyond. Supporting numerous open standards such as OPC UA, Automation ML or the IEC61131 languages, OWA is the platform for open automation applications.
OWA is a modular cloud architecture, which with its browser-based core components, numerous modules and interfaces also meets the requirements of OEMs. The platform contains the powerful development tool logi.CAD 3, that empowers users to work with state-of-the-art PLC programming tools. logi.CAD 3 leaves free choice regarding the programming language: The user can chose between the IEC 61131 languages or high-level languages such as C, C++ or Python. Collaborative development or scaling applications from single up to millions of I/Os in distributed architectures are no problems for logi.CAD 3. OWA in the cloud enables the browser-based development of safety applications, without having to go through time-consuming certification processes again and again.
Michael Plankensteiner, CEO of logi.cals explains: "Today it is important to rely on a platform, that is capable of easily and efficiently improving functions, we don‘t even know yet". OWA provides tools to develop these new functions, similar to updating an app for a smartphone, and to integrate them into the automation application without hesitation.
OWA provides developers with tools that are optimized for the use in a constantly changing world. For suppliers of automation components and systems, OWA represents a valid alternative to a proprietary solution of their own, because with OWA they count on a modern architecture based on the latest technologies significantly reducing the time-to-market.

Ipsen announces positive results from Phase IIIb/IV ENGAGE study of the combination of Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) with Guided Self-rehabilitation Contracts in adult patients with upper and lower limb spastic hemiparesis1,2,3,423.9.2019 08:00:00 EEST | Press release
Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today announced first results from the ENGAGE study which reports that simultaneous treatment with Dysport of both upper and lower limb spasticity in adult patients along with a Guided Self-rehabilitation Contract (GSC) – a personalized diary-based rehabilitation program – improved patients’ voluntary movement as measured by a composite active range of motion (CXA) outcome.1 Results from the study will be presented at the MDS International Congress in Nice, France, September 22-26, 2019 as poster #13705 and poster #13711. ENGAGE is the first study to investigate treatment with Dysport in patients with spastic hemiparesis in both upper and lower limbs in combination with GSC. The primary efficacy endpoint of this international, prospective, single-arm study was the percentage of patients classified as responders at week six after the second injection, according to the CXA in the primary treatment target (PTT) limb.1 Professor Jean-Miche
Source Photonics Announces a Comprehensive Portfolio of 50Gb/s Optical Transceivers for 5G Mid-Haul Applications23.9.2019 02:48:00 EEST | Press release
Source Photonics, a market leader of optical transceivers for wireless applications, announces a comprehensive portfolio of 50Gb/s products serving 5G mid-haul applications. Source Photonics’ product portfolio leverages 30 years of high-speed optical transceiver development and high-volume shipments into wireless, datacenter and routing applications, resulting in a broad portfolio of optical transceivers supporting data rates ranging from 125Mb/s to 400Gb/s and transmitting between 300m and 40 km. Source Photonics has leveraged early investments in signal integrity, firmware development, and uncooled high speed DML packaging to release the industry’s most broad 50G product portfolio. 50Gb/s, selected as the mid-haul data rate, provides mid-haul bandwidth requirements not supported by 25Gb/s while also offering meaningful economic advantages over traditional 100Gb/s transceivers. Furthermore, 50Gb/s data rate products support bi-directional applications, where fiber availability is scar
Source Photonics Demonstrates a Full 400G Product Portfolio at ECOC 201923.9.2019 02:01:00 EEST | Press release
Source Photonics, a leading vendor of optical connectivity products for Access and Datacom applications, will demonstrate its complete 400G portfolio with industry partners at ECOC 2019 from September 23-25. Source Photonics has added a wide range of new products to its industry leading portfolio of single-mode products for datacenter and routing applications. The new products leverage the company’s multi-year investment in 28Gbaud and 53Gbaud PAM4 technology and support 400G applications for reaches from 500m up to 40km in small form factor transceivers. Source Photonics’ portfolio of Datacenter and Routing products includes: 400G-DR4 supporting 400GE links over 500m as well as an enhanced reach of up to 2 km (4x100G-FR) with support for breakout into 100G-DR/FR 400G-LR8 supporting 400GE links up to 10 km 400G-ER8 supporting 400GE links up to 40km as technology demonstration “Successful interoperability between optical transceivers and hosts is crucial to rolling out the next higher d
Celltrion Healthcare Receives CHMP Positive Opinion for Novel Subcutaneous Formulation of CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) for the Treatment of People With Rheumatoid Arthritis23.9.2019 02:01:00 EEST | Press release
Celltrion Healthcare today announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has adopted a positive opinion for CT-P13 SC for marketing authorisation in the European Union (EU) in people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). CT-P13 SC is the subcutaneous version of Remsima® (biosimilar infliximab, CT-P13). This recommendation will now be reviewed by the European Commission, which has the authority to approve medicines in the EU. A subcutaneous formulation has the potential to enhance treatment options for the use of biosimilar infliximab by providing high consistency in drug exposure and a convenient method of administration.1,2 “Today’s positive CHMP opinion brings us one step closer to providing a personalised treatment approach for people living with rheumatoid arthritis. This marks an important milestone for our business providing people with a new route of administration, and a novel formulation of infliximab,” said Hyoung-Ki
Ipsen to Present New Data at 13th Annual Conference of the International Liver Cancer Association (ILCA 2019)20.9.2019 19:30:00 EEST | Press release
Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today presents results from the matching-adjusted indirect comparison (MAIC) of cabozantinib (Cabometyx®) versus regorafenib (Stivarga®) for the second-line treatment (2L) of patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (aHCC) who received sorafenib as the only prior systemic therapy. Using data from the Phase III CELESTIAL and RESORCE trials, the MAIC showed that cabozantinib offers greater efficacy versus regorafenib. Using data from the Phase III CELESTIAL and RESORCE trials, the MAIC showed that in the 2L CELESTIAL sub-population who had received sorafenib as the only prior systemic therapy, cabozantinib significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS), with an additional 2.4 months provided vs. regorafenib (5.6 months vs. 3.2 months [95% confidence interval (CI): 4.90-7.26], p<0.05). Median overall survival (OS) was also favorable with cabozantinib (11.4 months vs. 10.8 months), though statistical significance was not met
