The 5SL4 miniature circuit breaker safely shuts down circuits in buildings in case of overloads or short circuits and thus protects cables and devices from damage. The MCB with an integrated snap-on fixing system for mounting on the standard mounting rail can be integrated with minimum effort in existing electrical installations and combined with additional devices.
The new Siemens 5SL4 miniature circuit breakers are rated for 10-kA applications and can be flexibly expanded to offer additional functions.
The MCB is compatible with all Siemens accessory components, such as AFD units, auxiliary and residual current operated circuit breakers, undervoltage releases and fault signal contacts, and can thus be expanded by a wide range of functions. In addition to high operational and plant safety, the 5SL4 miniature circuit breakers offer protection and convenience during installation and servicing: The touch protection integrated in the terminals protects the installer from electrical shock when connecting the devices. The colored switch position indicator integrated in the handle always clearly indicates the current switching state. A handle locking device prevents unauthorized switching. Thanks to the consistent busbar concept, all the devices can be quickly and easily fitted in existing electrical installations. With the aid of the latching slide, they can be conveniently mounted on or removed from the standard mounting rail in the junction box. The rectangularly-designed terminals offer space for pin busbars, as well as additional conductors with a surface area of 0.75 to 25 mm².
The new Siemens devices in the 5SL4 series are available with the tripping characteristics B, C and D: The miniature circuit breakers with tripping characteristic B are designed for universal use in socket outlet circuits and lighting circuits. In lamp and motor circuits with higher starting currents, miniature circuit breakers with tripping characteristic C are generally used. For electrical circuits with strong pulse-generating equipment, such as transformers or solenoid valves, switches are used with tripping characteristic D.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
