Robust, easily installed commanding and signaling devices in a modern design

16.03.2015

Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35

  • Modular commanding and signaling device system in four design ranges
  • Extensive selection of pushbuttons, switches and indicators in various colors and designs for every application
  • Rugged designs with IP69K degree of protection
  • Particularly straightforward, error-free installation and removal thanks to twist prevention and snap-on concept

Sirius Act is a completely new system of commanding and signaling devices developed by Siemens. A modular system, it features a robust design in with IP69K degree of protection, high-level aesthetics and simple operation.

Sirius Act is a completely new system of commanding and signaling devices developed by Siemens. A modular system, it features a robust design with IP69K degree of protection, high-level aesthetics and simple operation.

Users have a choice of a wide range of pushbuttons and emergency stop buttons, selector and key switches and acoustic and optical indicators. The diverse range in metal and plastic versions for front panel mounting can also be combined flexibly with different rear-mounting contact and LED modules. An online configurator simplifies selection and ordering.

The components are connected to the controller via AS-Interface, IO-Link or standard cabling. Thanks to twist prevention and the innovative snap-on concept, the new commanding and signaling devices can be installed quickly and easily without errors even if holes are not keyed.

The new commanding and signaling devices were developed with a particular focus on ease of installation. The snap-on concept used in their design makes it possible to assemble the front element and rear holder quickly without tools. Disassembly is equally rapid thanks to a release lever. A screwed connection with reliable twist prevention means that keyed holes are not essential for reliable device installation.

Sirius Act is a modular product line that enables users to choose from four design ranges in plastic and metal versions to meet their specific application requirements. The front of the holders features different actuators and indicators, while at the rear they provide slots for contact and LED modules. There is sufficient space to accommodate up to three modules side by side and two contact modules one behind the other in each case. The modules are available with screw terminals, spring-type terminals or solder pin connections. Siemens also offers compact units in which the electrical module is permanently attached to the holder. Thanks to its IP69K degree of protection, Sirius Act is unaffected by dust, oils, caustic solutions and extreme environmental influences to the extent that it can safely be cleaned with a high-pressure jet at high-temperatures. Their long mechanical service life and certification for potentially explosive atmospheres makes the new commanding and signaling devices suitable for every application.

Siemens provides an online configurator for fast and convenient component combination and ordering. Single devices, housings and inscriptions can be combined individually to the customer's requirements in the configurator by means of drag and drop. An automatically generated CIN number enables customers to reorder their configuration at any time without having to provide any further details. The online configurator provides download options for documentation, exploded views and connection diagrams too.

Im Focus: First diode for magnetic fields

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.

Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
