The 5SL4 miniature circuit breaker safely shuts down circuits in buildings in case of overloads or short circuits and thus protects cables and devices from damage. The MCB with an integrated snap-on fixing system for mounting on the standard mounting rail can be integrated with minimum effort in existing electrical installations and combined with additional devices.
The new Siemens 5SL4 miniature circuit breakers are rated for 10-kA applications and can be flexibly expanded to offer additional functions.
The MCB is compatible with all Siemens accessory components, such as AFD units, auxiliary and residual current operated circuit breakers, undervoltage releases and fault signal contacts, and can thus be expanded by a wide range of functions. In addition to high operational and plant safety, the 5SL4 miniature circuit breakers offer protection and convenience during installation and servicing: The touch protection integrated in the terminals protects the installer from electrical shock when connecting the devices. The colored switch position indicator integrated in the handle always clearly indicates the current switching state. A handle locking device prevents unauthorized switching. Thanks to the consistent busbar concept, all the devices can be quickly and easily fitted in existing electrical installations. With the aid of the latching slide, they can be conveniently mounted on or removed from the standard mounting rail in the junction box. The rectangularly-designed terminals offer space for pin busbars, as well as additional conductors with a surface area of 0.75 to 25 mm².
The new Siemens devices in the 5SL4 series are available with the tripping characteristics B, C and D: The miniature circuit breakers with tripping characteristic B are designed for universal use in socket outlet circuits and lighting circuits. In lamp and motor circuits with higher starting currents, miniature circuit breakers with tripping characteristic C are generally used. For electrical circuits with strong pulse-generating equipment, such as transformers or solenoid valves, switches are used with tripping characteristic D.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
