Siemens Industry Inc. introduced the next generation of its proven Sirius Modular System of power control products with the Feb. 1 release of a new line called Sirius Innovations.Siemens Industry Inc. introduced the next generation of its proven Sirius Modular System of power control products with the Feb. 1 release of a new line called Sirius Innovations.

The Sirius Innovations line comes in sizes S00 (10 hp) and S0 (30 hp) and incorporates sustainable elements that make more efficient use of space and simplify assembly, while reducing power consumption. Increased power performance up to 40 A in a reduced 45 mm footprint is one key benefit to the space savings provided by the new products.

 Additionally, Sirius Innovations include IO-Link communication modules that dramatically reduce control wiring and quickly snap onto contactors of direct, reversing and wye-delta motor starters up to 30 horsepower. The IO-Link modules also allow status and diagnostic data communication to the Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) platform. AS-Interface communication modules for motor starters have also been added to the product range.

“Sirius Innovations is a feature-rich new series of power controls that offers benefits to panel builders and end users alike,” said Raj Batra, president of the Industry Automation Division of Siemens Industry Inc. “With the introduction of this new line, Siemens is setting a new standard in terms of capability and reliability while helping customers stay flexible in design, efficient in their processes and connected to critical information.”

The Sirius Innovations product line includes an expansion of termination options with the introduction of ring-lug terminal versions.  The ring-lug terminals enable Siemens to access new markets like Semiconductors where the industry has a standard requirement to use ring-lug terminals.

Siemens said Sirius Innovations are:

Efficient through increased performance in a reduced compact design, as well as time and installation savings with “snap and go” components. Energy consumption is reduced up to 98% improving product efficiency throughout the product lifecycle

Flexible because of a versatile modular design and are approved and installed worldwide

Connected with communication capable components, as well as data transparency and diagnostics.
