Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35
Siemens have expanded their portfolio of switch disconnectors for low-voltage power distribution. The new devices from the 3KD series were developed specifically for personal and system protection in photovoltaic plants and wind farms.
The new six-pole model switch disconnectors are designed for PV systems in which high voltages up to 1200 V (DC) are generated. Siemens increased the permissible AC operating voltage tolerance of the three- and four-pole units from previously +5% to +10% as required by the IEC 60947 standard for wind farms.
The 3KD switch disconnectors will now safely power down systems with voltages of 690 V AC (+10%). Siemens offers the units with integrated side wall-mounted rotary operator for left- or right-hand side mounting.
Switch disconnectors ensure the safe activation and deactivation of electric equipment under load. They are used as repair switches to safely disconnect power and ensure secure conditions for maintenance work. As emergency stop switches, they protect machine operators against electric shock in case of faults. The 3KD switch disconnectors are suitable for currents up to 1600 A and are designed for use in buildings, factories, wind farms, and PV systems.
They are easily mounted and quickly commissioned. The modular design and comprehensive range of accessories allows the addition of further functions easily via retrofits. Additional safety features, including terminal covers, prevent direct contact with live components at the switch disconnectors. The contact setting of the switch is easily visible via the transparent terminal covers, which prevents incorrect operation. The devices are lockable, which offers additional protection against unauthorized switching. Plug-in phase barriers protect against inter-phase arcing.
An extensive service and support offering rounds off the engineering of the 3KD switch disconnector: Eleven CAx data types for mechanical and electric planning are made available for download online, including internal circuit diagrams, connection diagrams, dimensional drawings, and 3D models. The information can be downloaded via the CAx Download Manager. The data can be quickly and flexibly bundled, and then integrated in any popular configuring tool.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
