- F-gas-free Clean Air switchgear extends blue GIS portfolio to 24 kV level
- Proven and safe technologies for easy management over the entire lifecycle
- Digital features allow for increased reliability in all grids and optimized operation
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is expanding its portfolio of environmentally friendly, gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) to 24 kilovolts (kV) with a new fluorine gas-free NXPLUS C 24 medium-voltage switchgear. The use of Clean Air – a natural insulation medium – in combination with proven vacuum switching technology eliminates the need for any fluorine-based gas mixtures (F-gases), enabling climate-neutral energy distribution. The switchgear is equipped with digital features allowing for safe, reliable and cost-efficient operation.
- New 3RS2 product series for monitoring the temperature of gases, liquids, and solids in industrial and infrastructure installations
- Overall width was cut in half and allows space-saving installation
- Combining functions into one device simplifies order selection
Siemens Smart Infrastructure has transformed the temperature monitoring relays from its Sirius portfolio. The new series 3RS2 devices are available in analog and digital versions. They use sensors to measure the temperature in industrial control cabinets, of engine, bearing, and transmission oils, or cooling liquids, preventing plant malfunctions or damage that can result when exceeding or dropping below certain limit values. These relays can also monitor heating, air-conditioning, and ventilation systems, solar collectors, heat pumps, and hot water supply systems.The devices in the new Sirius 3RS2 series
are approved for safety applications up to SIL 1 / PL c, for use in industrial
furnaces, as well as for monitoring burners and ATEX applications, among other
things. Compared to the predecessor models, they feature expanded
functionalities, a narrower design, and easier operability.
- Contactless temperature measurement at main entry points in buildings
- Integrates into workflow of existing security and access solutions
- Increases protection of building occupants
Siemens Smart Infrastructure announced the launch of Siveillance Thermal Shield. This solution package quickly measures the body temperature of a person seeking to access a building and enables the results to be integrated into the video and access systems of corporations. Thermal imaging cameras are used to measure, in a contactless way, the body temperature at a distance of up to two meters, ensuring the safety of monitoring staff. If the camera screening indicates an elevated body temperature, a second reading must be taken using a medical thermometer to confirm the finding.
- Sutherland Avenue is UK’s first residential avenue fully converted to provide lamppost electric vehicle charging points
- Conversions address growing demand for electric vehicles, add 24 charging points
- Helps Westminster reach its thousand charge point target for 2020
Siemens has unveiled the UK’s first avenue, which is over half a mile in length, that has been fully converted to cater for electric vehicle (EV) charging, coined ‘Electric Avenue, W9’.
Increased security through encrypted data transmission and extended password protection
Timer program for presence simulation
- Control of SONOS speakers and Philips HUE LED lighting system
IP Control Center (IPCC) N 152, Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s compact visualization controller designed to control standard rooms and complex building management functions in small and medium-sized commercial buildings, is now available with new V4 firmware. The updated IPCC combines more functionalities for customized system integration and installation as well as maximum building and data protection without having to rely on additional software. Extended security measures, such as encrypted data transmission and presence simulation as well as other functional options such as individual scene settings, have also been implemented. In addition, new interfaces enable the control of SONOS loudspeakers and the Philips HUE lighting system. As part of the GAMMA instabus building control portfolio, a range of products based on the international KNX standard, the new IPCC visualization controller makes it possible to control KNX devices faster and more easily. It provides intuitive operation and display of KNX systems on a customizable, fully graphical user interface for controlling standard room functions as well as complex building management functions from a central panel, PC or mobile device.
- Higher light comfort due to energy-saving switching and dimming of up to 20 DALI ECGs per channel in broadcast mode
- Personalized control with “tunable white” for Human Centric Lighting (HCL)
- Easy installation, low maintenance expenses and energy efficient switching and dimming
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is launching its new KNX switch and dim actuator N 525D11, 2x DALI Broadcast. The rail-mounted device for installation in distribution boards has two Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) outputs. Thanks to a control performance of up to 20 DALI electrical ballasts (ECG) per DALI output, the new actuator offers energy efficiency and low commissioning costs during broadcast mode where all connected ECG, for example lamps, are controlled simultaneously. The new device has a wide range of functions to increase comfort for room users, such as color temperature control and configurable dimming curves. In addition, the actuator is able to store light scenes, send status or error messages, and provide switching cycles as well as an operating hour counter. The new device offers the best conditions for optimum lighting ratios in the room. In combination with presence detectors, which control brightness fully automatically, a simultaneous control of brightness and color temperature can be achieved.
- Reduced amount of copper lowers material costs
- Smart ventilation system ensures optimal heat dissipation
- Digital engineering and new system concept shorten project lead times for switchgear manufacturers
Infrastructure introduces the Alpha 3200 Eco power distribution board. Thanks to a new system, it requires one-third less
copper. The new power distribution board features a main busbar in the middle
of the board instead of at the top or the bottom, allowing devices to be
attached directly. Previously, additional connection rails made of copper were
needed. This new design significantly reduces material costs and installation
efforts. It also allows for more flexible installation of the associated Alpha
assembly kits with protection, switching and measuring devices. Overall, this
results in more room for valuable functions, such as collecting energy data and
switching states, as well as for connecting the power distribution board to
digital building management systems. A new ventilation system with two cooling
circuits provides for optimal heat dissipation and energy yield.
In an era of consumer-oriented production and economic uncertainty, industrial companies are constantly facing new challenges. We're integrating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, Edge and Cloud computing, and Industrial 5G into the Digital Enterprise. This is how we're enabling the intelligence that’s required for the production of customized products. On Wednesday, March 4, the CEOs of Digital Industries presented technological innovations as well as current product highlights. They showed numerous specific examples to demonstrate how companies need to think and act in ecosystems in order to implement Industrie 4.0. We also demonstrated how we’re combining the latest technologies with our domain expertise to make our solutions for the digital transformation more and more market-specific.
