• 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.”

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
