Siemens to expand range of time relays

05.12.2014

• 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.”

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
