RS supports migration to next generation of industrial control products

RS Components is providing support for customers looking to migrate to the latest generation of the Siemens SIRIUS line of industrial control products.

The modular system offers a comprehensive range of control panel products with numerous combinations to cover every possible application. Sizes S00, S0, S2 and S3 up to 55kW have been further developed, and the system now offers additional advantages to meet the latest application requirements.

Offering higher power ratings and increased functionality in identically-sized space-saving devices as the previous series, the latest SIRIUS modular system offers a full range of control panel products, from simple load feeders to units that switch, protect, start and monitor motors up to 250kW and 400V.

The SIRIUS system guarantees simple wiring to save installers both money and time. The units in the SIRIUS system fit together simply and easily, avoiding problems when combining different products together. The flexible in-feed system (for S0 and S00) uses screw-type and spring-loaded connections, enabling easy assembly without the use of tools.

Additional capabilities of the new series include readiness for the new IE3/IE4 generation of motors; a range of snap-on function modules, including communication units; as well as current-monitoring relays for the upgraded S00, S0 and S2 units, which can be directly integrated onto the load feeders.

In addition to helping users understand the complexities encountered during the process of product migration, RS will be stocking both the old- and new-generation SIRIUS products to make the migration process as smooth as possible, as products are phased out over the next few months.

The SIRIUS system units meet all relevant worldwide standards and approvals for deployment in any market including safety application and in extreme environments such as the railway and shipbuilding sectors.

Next Generation Freight Transport Mark Patrick | mouser Electronics
Next Generation Freight Transport
As road freight transport levels continue to grow, concerns about the impact on the environment and human health come sharply into focus. Fossil fuel dependency makes it a leading source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but shifting freight to other transportation modes will prove challenging. Solutions that will improve the efficiency and performance of road freight transport are therefore essential to achieve defined environmental goals. In this blog, we will explore a potential solution that has been pioneered by Siemens - called eHighway. This combines the efficiency of electrified railways with the flexibility of trucks in order to form an innovative, next generation freight traffic system that is efficient, economical and environmentally friendly.
