RS Components works with Siemens for pushbutton and signalling

Distributor RS Components is working closely with Siemens to help customers with the phase out of the manufacturer’s Sirius 3SB3 22mm pushbutton range and the migration to Siemens’ Sirius Act range of devices.

In October 2017, Siemens announced the gradual phase-out of its 22mm Sirius 3SB3 command and signalling devices, providing customers with enough time to migrate to the newer range of ACT pushbutton devices. From October 2019, Siemens will cease delivery of the Sirius 3SB3.

To help customers such as machine and panel builders migrate to the Act range, RS has prepared a cross-reference list from SB3 to CT devices. The list is available on the RS website and includes the RS stock numbers and Siemens part codes, as well as information to ensure a smooth changeover path. RS has also created a dedicated page on its DesignSpark website to provide access to the information and available tools in one place.

The Sirius Act series of pushbuttons offers modern design options with four lines to suit customers’ facilities, is protected to IP69K, even without protective caps. The devices also deliver communications via standard wiring or direct connection to controllers via AS-Interface, IO-Link or Profinet. Pushbuttons are easy to deploy with simple installation and online configuration and ordering.

The Sirius Act pushbuttons are available from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
