Siemens to expand range of time relays

05.12.2014

• New Sirius 3RP25 mono-functional and multi-functional time relays offer up to 27 functions
• Series offers greater space-saving and global use
• Semiconductor output for high switching frequencies and wear-free switching
• Wide voltage range expanded to 12V - 240V AC/DC

Siemens is expanding its portfolio of monitoring and control devices to include a series of new time relays which offer greater space-saving and enhanced functionality.

The Sirius 3RP25 series incorporates everything from mono-functional devices with common functions, such as switch-on and return delay, through to multi-functional devices for every application with the ability to integrate up to 27 functions in a single device.

The 3RP25 time relays have a new enclosure design and its mono-functional devices with a width of 17.5mm offer the greatest space-saving in the control cabinet. The wide voltage range for direct current and alternating current (AC/DC) have also been expanded uniformly to 12V - 240V, enabling the number of device variants to be almost halved, minimising logistics and simplifying configuring and service.

The new series boasts the necessary international certification meaning the time relays can be used globally. The new devices are also equipped with a watchdog function which is particularly effective for controlling clock times in cyclic sequences, providing benefits in many industrial applications, such as conveyor belts.

The variants with wear-free semiconductor output can be used effectively in applications with frequent, short switching operations, such as longitudinal feed in punching or embossing machines.

The product range encompasses removable terminals in widths of 17.5mm or 22.5mm and in the mid-term, will replace time relays of the 3RP15 range.

Simon Keogh, Siemens UK & Ireland, comments: “Thanks to their new functions, the 3RP25 devices are even more flexible in use than the previous versions, particularly in applications involving compressors or elevators for example, or in woodworking.”

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,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
