The new Sirius 3RM1 motor starter from the Siemens Industry Automation Division offers a space-saving starter solution which combines two different connection technologies in a single device.
The dual connection facility simplifies engineering, maintenance and installation of the 3RM1 in the control cabinet. By offering a combination of push-in control circuit connection and screwtype main circuit connection, the Sirius 3RM1 motor starter affords extreme flexibility in different applications.
The benefit of this design for users: simpler implementation of specific assemblies in the control cabinet. If required, the detachable dual-connection technology terminals can also be individually exchanged, affording greater convenience when working with existing wiring installations.
The push-in alternative uses a springloaded mechanism for rapid connection without the need for tools – which cuts wiring work and expense to a minimum for control cabinet makers. The push-in method also ensures highly vibration- proof connections in the control circuit.
This eliminates the need for regular checking and tightening of the kind required with screw connections, significantly reducing the maintenance load. In the main circuit, screw connection technology allows the use of the threephase infeed system. The infeed system quickly and simply links groups of motor starters up to a total current of 25 amperes.
The special shape of the busbars combined with the use of screw connection technology allows individual motor starters to be quickly and simply removed from the feeder network or reintegrated as required. This also helps to increase system availability.

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,...
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...
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...
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...
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...
