Motor starter Sirius 3RM1

Motor starter with dual connection technology

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.

Im Focus: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
