Insulation monitors secure power supply

05.03.2008
For early detection and correction of insulation faults, the Siemens Building Technologies Division now offers two new rack-mounting units: the 7LQ3 354 and 7LQ3 355 insulation monitors. They monitor non-grounded power supplies in medical premises, detect insulation faults as soon as they occur, and output warning signals.

Mains-dependent medical equipment must remain in operation even when threatened with a short-circuit to frame, or when the general power supply fails. The 7LQ3 354 and 7LQ3 355 insulation monitors guarantee this by monitoring the insulation resistance of the non-grounded power supply as well as the load current and the temperature of a transformer. On the 7LQ3 354, the alarm value of the insulation resistance is 50 kilo-ohms (fixed).

The 7LQ3 355 monitor also offers an adjustable response threshold of 50 to 500 kilo-ohms. In addition, a line of color LEDs indicates the current insulation status between 20 kilo-ohms and 1 mega-ohm. Users can thus see the plant status at a glance. Changeover contacts can be used to connect the devices to the building automation system or to the relevant medical monitoring system. The insulation monitors can even be installed in existing systems. The 7LQ3 355 monitor is compatible with the 7XV93 test and signaling combinations from Siemens.

If the voltage drops below 90 percent of the rated value, the 5TT3411 and 5TT3412 voltage relays transmit the signal for switching to a second mains supply to secure the continued operation of the medical equipment. This means they are suitable for the secure power supply not only of medical premises but also of other sensitive areas such as server systems, etc. The new voltage relays are suitable for single-phase (5TT3411) and three-phase (5TT3412) supply systems.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
