Powerful machines and plants need powerful push buttons, switches and indicators: SIRIUS ACT offers you a unique portfolio of elegantly designed push buttons, indicator lights and switches that are the perfect embodiment of style, intelligence, and physical toughness. Constructed with genuine metal and high-grade plastics, and engineered with smart functions and communication capabilities, these new push buttons, indicator lights and switches have been extreme element tested to ensure reliability for your most mission critical operations. For us, pressing a button is more than just a matter of pressing a button!
ID-key-operated switches are used in place of conventional key-operated switches particularly in industrial plants, where there several safety-related implications are available, and where different authorization levels are necessary for operating a system.
Switches and keys are not coupled mechanically, but are linked via a wireless connection using a tag that is built into an ID-key and read by the transmitter unit in a switch. Keys and switches are plastic-coated, and do not come into contact at the wireless interface. This protects the electronics in the switches against external influences such as dirt and water.
An additional advantage over conventional keys is that the tag, and thus the authorization levels of a key, can be modified remotely. After the delivery of the assembly, new keys can be easily added location-independent via an individual number. If an ID-key is lost, it can simply be blocked and replaced. In addition, a number of different evaluations are possible.
Indicator lights versions
Voltage versions: 24 V AC/DC, 110 V AC, 230 V AC, 6 - 24 V AC/DC, 24 - 240 V AC/DC
In compact and/or complete design, depending on voltage version
Three-color (traffic light LED):
Voltage versions: 6 - 24 V AC/DC, 110 V AC, 230 V AC
In compact design. The colors green, yellow or red can be generated with two circuits. By activating just one circuit, the color options of red or green can be selected. By activating both circuits simultaneously, you get the color yellow.
Communication is one of the strong points of SIRIUS ACT. In addition to the conventional screw and spring-type connections of the command and signaling devices, direct connections to PROFINET can also be implemented in the control cabinet or IO-Link and AS-Interface in the field.
The various communication interfacing options provided enable simple combinations of push buttons and signaling devices, HMI touch screens and industrial PCs, which means that complex input stations can be set up without extensive wiring and engineering time and effort.
Integration into the TIA Portal enables them to be visually displayed for better harmonization with the hardware, thus simplifying and speeding up hardware configuration. Further advantages are uniform data management, time savings thanks to intuitive hardware configuration and lower downtimes resulting from faster fault diagnostics. The option handling feature (especially with PROFINET) enables flexible systems to be designed and individually adapted – even during ongoing operation.
The quick and easy installation with ribbon cable (piercing technology) without special tools saves considerable wiring effort.
The SIRIUS ACT configurator offers you many advantages. Enclosures and labeling can be combined individually and to suit specific customer needs – and this is done particularly easily thanks to graphics-based component selection with a drag-and-drop function and a graphical preview. Using the automatically generated CIN number, you can order your enclosure configuration at any time again without the need to enter any more data.
