In electrical engineering and assembly applications, all devices excel with easy handling. They can be mounted quickly and efficiently without any errors. A significant benefit of the devices, which are perfectly designed down to the last detail, is their excellent suitability for the particular requirements of many different industries. The broad range offers a multitude of variations to suit all needs across numerous sectors.
They are also beneficial thanks to their flexible communication capabilities. They offer optimal connection options that require no additional time and effort.
SIRIUS command and signalling devices can withstand a lot during normal operation, working reliably under harsh conditions. Thanks to their clever design and cutting-edge engineering, the attractive devices also fit in with any situation.
Temperature, water spray, dust, and shock vibrations are unavoidable in many industrial plants. But they do not present a challenge for SIRIUS command and signalling devices, which operate reliably and error-free under even the harshest conditions.
Circuit Protection – Siemens offers one of the most comprehensive lines of low voltage circuit breakers. With current ratings from 3A to 6000A and interrupting ratings up to 200kA at 480V, the prospects are endless across a range of applications.

Communication – Digitalization opens up new perspectives for the industry. The basis is laid by robust communication networks – but only if they are designed to satisfy the specific requirements for the industry.
Save Space, Time and Money
Optimise your control panel designs with innovative technologies that save space in the cabinet, reduce wiring and assembly time, and save you money.
Wire savings – SIRIUS ACT PROFINET is a solution for linking push buttons and signalling devices quickly and easily by connecting them to a controller using PROFINET industrial communication. Customers will benefit from faster engineering, installation and wiring with the added benefits of touch.

Faster wiring with spring-loaded connections – Wire motor starter assemblies faster with spring-loaded contacts. Spring-loaded connections allow for quick wiring connections without the use of any special tools, are as strong as traditional screw connections, and do not loosen over time or require retightening. Available for the complete SIRIUS control portfolio, spring-loaded contacts save you time.
Reduced wiring with added communication – Significantly reduce wiring in the control panel and add the benefits of contact with IO-link technology. IO-link is a point-to-point communication that also reduces wiring. Connect an IO-link master up to 16 motor starters and reduce wiring from 80 wires to just 4, allowing a more simple system that can be managed.
Save up to 75% of space in the control cabinet with miniaturisation – With the SIRIUS 3RM1 motor starter, you can save up to 75% of the area in the cupboard. 3RM1 motor starter devices have a width of only .88 inches, combining relay contacts, power semiconductors, and an electronic overload relay for switching induction motors up to 3 HP.
