SIRIUS 3RM1 fail-safe motor starter in use at Saechsisch-Bayerische Starkstrom Geraetebau GmbHSaechsisch-Bayerische Starkstrom Geraetebau GmbH (SBG) has been producing oil distribution transformers for over 70 years. The high order volume and changes in customer requirements left the company no choice but to construct a new production line. As some of the new assembly conveyors had an open design, safety systems played a major role in the company's planning, which is why they chose the SIRIUS 3RM1 motor starter solution. The narrow width of just .88 inches not only left enough space for future expansions in the control panel, but also reduced the amount of wiring work by more than 50%.
Thanks to the combination of switching, protection and safety functions in the constricted available space for the control panels, this solution turned out to be a great solution.Alexander August,managing director of AEM August Elektrotechnik GmbH (supplier of the electric equipment for the new SBG production line).
