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.

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
