Insulation monitors secure power supply

05.03.2008
For early detection and correction of insulation faults, the Siemens Building Technologies Division now offers two new rack-mounting units: the 7LQ3 354 and 7LQ3 355 insulation monitors. They monitor non-grounded power supplies in medical premises, detect insulation faults as soon as they occur, and output warning signals.

Mains-dependent medical equipment must remain in operation even when threatened with a short-circuit to frame, or when the general power supply fails. The 7LQ3 354 and 7LQ3 355 insulation monitors guarantee this by monitoring the insulation resistance of the non-grounded power supply as well as the load current and the temperature of a transformer. On the 7LQ3 354, the alarm value of the insulation resistance is 50 kilo-ohms (fixed).

The 7LQ3 355 monitor also offers an adjustable response threshold of 50 to 500 kilo-ohms. In addition, a line of color LEDs indicates the current insulation status between 20 kilo-ohms and 1 mega-ohm. Users can thus see the plant status at a glance. Changeover contacts can be used to connect the devices to the building automation system or to the relevant medical monitoring system. The insulation monitors can even be installed in existing systems. The 7LQ3 355 monitor is compatible with the 7XV93 test and signaling combinations from Siemens.

If the voltage drops below 90 percent of the rated value, the 5TT3411 and 5TT3412 voltage relays transmit the signal for switching to a second mains supply to secure the continued operation of the medical equipment. This means they are suitable for the secure power supply not only of medical premises but also of other sensitive areas such as server systems, etc. The new voltage relays are suitable for single-phase (5TT3411) and three-phase (5TT3412) supply systems.

Im Focus: ScanCut project completed: laser cutting enables more intricate plug connector designs

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.

Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...

Im Focus: New Strategy Against Osteoporosis

An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.

Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

Im Focus: Tailored light inspired by nature

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.

Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
