Siemens announces the new launch of Sirius Act, a unique portfolio of 22-mm IEC push buttons, indicator lights and selector switches that showcase modern design, extreme robustness, flexible communication and ease of installation.
“I’m very excited about the latest development of our new line of commanding and signaling devices. The new design provides a modular approach to ease installation and offers an extensive selection for every application with IP69K ruggedness offerings. I’m confident our customers will see and appreciate the level of innovations in the Sirius Act products,” said Dale Langston, vice president of control products, Siemens.
The flat, round metal and plastic elements combine functionality with an esthetic look. Customers can choose from four design lines and diverse options for combining actuator and indicator, material, color, the type of front ring and lighting providing an option for every application and budget.
Sirius Act push buttons utilize a snap-on concept making them easy to install saving on installation time. There are no special tools required and there is simple geometry for mounting holes. The self-explanatory installation can be completed with one-hand for the actuator, holder and contact block. Additionally, visible installation markers and indicators on the components help further reduce the risk of incorrect installation.
IP69K is the new standard for the product line providing users with the highest degree of protection. It is suitable for cleaning with a high-pressure jet at high temperatures as well as other extreme environmental influences.
The Sirius Act product line provides flexible communication allowing connection to AS-I, IO-Link and Profinet. When linked to IO-Link and Profinet, the buttons can be integrated in the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) portal.
