The Sivacon 8PS LI system, which will replace the existing LX system, is a busbar trunking system developed by Siemens for high currents up to 6,300 amperes. The new system meets the most important European safety standards and supports energy management by integrating communications-capable measuring and protection devices in the tap-off units.
Thanks to a compact design, it can also be flexibly installed in small spaces. The hook and bold connection guarantee low-loss busbar junctions with high contact quality for efficient power transmission. Busbar trunking systems are used in place of cables for safe and flexible power distribution in buildings and industrial plants. The LI system will be presented for the first time at Light+Building, which will take place from March 30 to April 4, 2014 in Frankfurt.
The new busbar trunking system is particularly suitable for transmitting power in the range of 800 A to 6,300 A over long distances and in small spaces. Thanks to a compact sandwich design, high currents can be transmitted in horizontal and vertical irrespective of the mounting position with a low voltage drop. The system was designed specifically for use in multistory buildings and computer centers as well as industrial plants.
While electricity can be tapped only at fixed points in conventional cable installations, the LI system allows outgoing current feeders to be varied as desired between 50 A and 1,250 A via flexible tap-off units – even while energized, according to DIN EN 50110-1, depending on the national standards. Communications-capable measuring and switching devices can be installed in the tap-off units and integrated into energy management systems according to ISO 50001.
The LI system has been design verified according to IEC 61439-1/-6 and thus meets the high safety requirements. High short-circuit rating, degree of protection IP55 and a low fire load, thanks to the aluminum housing, reliably protect people, equipment and buildings.
The fire barrier of the LI system was tested for fire resistance classes EI90 and EI120 (EN 13501 category) according to EN1366-3 and thus meets building regulations according to European standards. The design verified connections to the Sivacon S8 low-voltage switchboard ensure high reliability and optimum plant protection. The system works reliably even when operated under full load at an ambient temperature of 40 °C.
The busbar elements are assembled with hook-and-bolt connection, which guarantees high connection quality and low contact resistance. These connection technology give the LI system improved rigidity with high fixing distances. Different feeding elements, trunking units, elbow and knee elements as well as various tap-off units allow the LI system to be reliably planned and assembled to fit any building structure.

The only professorship in Germany to date, one master's programme, one laboratory with worldwide unique equipment and the corresponding research results: The University of Würzburg is leading in the field of biofabrication.
Paul Dalton is presently the only professor of biofabrication in Germany. About a year ago, the Australian researcher relocated to the Würzburg department for...
Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.
Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...

On Tuesday, 19 May 2015 the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its home port in Bremerhaven, setting a course for the Arctic. Led by Dr Ilka Peeken from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) a team of 53 researchers from 11 countries will investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic, from the surface ice floes down to the seafloor.
RV Polarstern will enter the sea-ice zone north of Spitsbergen. Covering two shallow regions on their way to deeper waters, the scientists on board will focus...
