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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
