Dialogue between man and machine demands special attention. System faults and interruptions must be reliably signalled in real time. If things start to get critical, you must be assured that machines and processes can be reliably and safely stopped.
Siemens SIRIUS commanding and signalling devices encompass an extensive range of products for almost any situation. Whether machine-mounted or in automated processes – if in-line reliable mounting is required for complex or sequenced operations, Siemens SIRIUS 8WD signalling columns and integrated signal lamps are the best devices for visual and acoustic alarm.
Thanks to its degree of modularity, the Sirius 8WD product is flexible in design and versatile in use while allowing quick and secure mounting. Also as a result of the rugged design they are extremely resistant to shock and vibration.
Modules can be flexibly combined, and stacked up to5-10 elements high depending on the range. Additionally, they are simple to connect and can change a lamp quickly using a bayonet catch. A slight twist at the marker line is all that is needed and the individual elements are reliably connected, both mechanically and electrically. Whether on the floor, mounted on pipes, or on brackets, the different versions of the SIRIUS signalling columns can be simply, quickly and safely mounted.
Innovative LED technology plays an essential role in achieving maximum operational safety. This is mainly due to the exceptionally long life of LEDS as a life expectancy of up to 100’000 hours can be achieved. The acoustic elements of the 8WD range hit the right note – for the buzzer elements, a switch is used to select a continuous or pulsating tone of 85 dB. The volume of the siren elements can be continuously adjusted using a potentiometer.
Also, using an adapter module, SIRIUS 8WD signalling columns can be easily connected to the AS-interface bus system without any significant wiring costs. This means that the signalling columns are part of a seamless and integrated communications from the supervisory level down to the actuator or sensor.
The new GSM radio element minimises downtime while increasing productivity– it signals any fault within a matter of seconds, through your mobile phone, independent of the time or your location. And thanks to their high IP65 degree protection and especially strong illumination, SIRIUS signal lamps are suitable for ambient conditions as well as outdoors.
DBI Control regularly include signalling towers, usually mounted on top of the enclosure, as it is vital to have a visual and audio alert when there is an emergency situation occurring.
