Yes, the tech word is littered with big names like Apple, Google, Toyota, and General Motors, but there are many other powerhouses that most of us in North America have little to no familiarity with. One such company is Germany’s Siemens, and they have just released a new series of products for the tech industry.
It’s called SIRIUS ACT and it offers nearly all types of machinery with elegantly designed push buttons, indicator lights and switches that the company says “are the perfect embodiment of style, intelligence, and physical toughness.”
Considering Siemens — Europe’s largest electronics company — has been in business for over 165 years and has built a solid reputation for quality, highly-durable, energy-efficient and resource saving tech solutions, we’ll take their word for it.
More specifically, SIRIUS ACT is a modular system of pushbuttons and indicator lights for front plate mounting and rear-mounted electrical modules.
Why make a big deal about contraptions as vanilla and mundane as push buttons and indicator lights, you might wonder? Short answer: our increasingly chaotic world can always use some sprucing up. Siemens’ system come in four stylish designs that can be customized to your unique taste: plastic black, plastic with a metal front ring (matte), metal shiny, metal matter and flat solid metal.
Fortunately, with SIRIUS ACT, you get more than just spiffy aesthetics. Every component (e.g. buttons, lights, and switches) is constructed from premium and durable materials such as genuine metal and high-grade plastics, and all controls have the capability to communicate and interact with each other.
For quality assurance, Siemens engineers also put SIRIUS ACT through an extensive series of trials that includes high pressured element tests and painstakingly configured each and every control to ensure that they work perfectly with HMI touchscreens and industrial computers.
The company assures us that dust, water, oils, caustic solutions and extreme environmental influences have nothing on this bad boy, making it ideal for many applications.
With such sophistication, you would think SIRIUS ACT would be difficult to install and use. Think again! An innovative snap-on concept makes installing the unit so easy that it can be done with one hand. Moreover, an intuitive generator for the SIRIUS ACT Configurator provides users with three easy steps for arranging devices individually online with selection, drag-and- drop functions and comfortable reporting.
With SIRIUS ACT, Siemens looks to have delivered a modern, easy-to-use, extremely-rugged and flexible system that could give your machinery the extra oomph! it’s been needing. Any questions?
