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.

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
