Product innovations in distribution systems

10.04.2008
Siemens Building Technologies (BT) has added new products to its Alpha distribution systems range for applications in residential and non-residential buildings and in industry.

This includes the Alpha 400-ZS meter cabinet, which enables a combination of Ferraris meters and the new electronic household meters (eHZ), as well as the new distribution board series Alpha Box. Furthermore, Siemens has added new functions for configuring and planning distribution boards and small distribution boards with Version 5.0 of its Alpha Select software.

Users can install both the new electronic household meter (eHZ) and the Ferraris meter into the Alpha-400-ZS meter cabinet. The meter support plate permits mounting of either meter generation by simply exchanging the mounting brackets. In the event of a failure, the device can be hot swapped quickly and easily thanks to the plug-in technology without requiring a shutdown of the system. The Alpha 400-ZS meter cabinets are available with an overall height of 900 or 1050 millimeters and in five different overall widths.

With the Alpha Box, Siemens now offers a wall-mounted distribution board for rated voltages of up to 690 V for the interiors of residential and non-residential buildings. Due to the corrosion-resistant surface with IP55 degree of protection, users can also install the distribution board in damp locations. When closed, the unit meets the requirements of overvoltage category II/III as well as pollution severity II/III. The Alpha Box can be used, for example, for power distribution solutions for garage-door opener drives, window and sauna controllers, or simple applications in small-sized companies.

Alpha Select Version 5.0 serves as planning and configuration software for installation engineers, control cabinet builders and wholesalers. It enables users to dimension distribution boards and small distribution boards, select Alpha-400-ZS meter cabinets, equip the cabinets in a virtual mock-up and calculate assembly services for devices.

Im Focus: New Method of Characterizing Graphene

Scientists have developed a new method of characterizing graphene’s properties without applying disruptive electrical contacts, allowing them to investigate both the resistance and quantum capacitance of graphene and other two-dimensional materials. Researchers from the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the University of Basel’s Department of Physics reported their findings in the journal Physical Review Applied.

Graphene consists of a single layer of carbon atoms. It is transparent, harder than diamond and stronger than steel, yet flexible, and a significantly better...

Im Focus: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
