New electronic components for the retrofit market

20.06.2002


Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) presents new electronic components in the Delta switches and socket outlets range for the retrofit market in the area of lighting and shutters. The new products include universal dimmer and shutter control inserts, conventional and wireless operator pushbuttons, and a battery-operated wall-mounted transmitter.



The "sys universal dimmer insert" is suitable for all types of lighting to 420 watts/volt-ampere connected load. The dimmer can be easily retrofitted with two-wire connections. It is characterized by a lamp-saving soft start and can be programmed to switch on to a predefined brightness value, and also features electronic overtemperature and short-circuit protection.

With the "sys shutter control insert", shutters and roller shutter motors can be controlled up to a connected load of 1,000 volt-amperes. Group and central controllers can be implemented by combining several shutter control inserts using the extension unit inputs. As well as enhancements such as 24-hour automatic operation in conjunction with the Delta "wave shutter" pushbutton, the sys shutter control insert offers a "wind alarm" safety function if a wind sensor is connected to the OPEN extension unit input.


The "wave UP 210" and "wave shutter UP 211" wireless pushbuttons for lighting or shutter control are attached to the universal dimmer or the shutter control insert. The wireless system is bi-directional so that the pushbuttons function as both transmitter and receiver. This means the inserts can be operated locally or remotely via the wireless link. In conventional wired operation, the "sys Delta pushbuttons" are used for the universal dimmer, and the "sys shutter Delta pushbuttons" are used for shutter control.

The wall-mounted "battery wave UP 110" transmitter is a wireless transmitter for remote wireless operation of room functions such as switching, dimming, shutter control, and scenic lighting. It is designed for installation in a flush-mounted switch socket. A single or double Siemens Instabus EIB pushbutton is attached as the operator interface. Power is supplied to the wall transmitter from a lithium battery.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
