The Sirius 3RR24 current monitoring relay for IO-Link enhances the switching technology portfolio of the Siemens Industry Automation Division. The new Sirius 3RR24 monitors motors over the complete torque curve and is also dimensioned for current monitoring of the overall plant.
The device detects load shedding, for example when a belt snaps, or motor overloads due to overloading of the driven conveyor belt or crane. Sirius 3RR24 also detects current imbalances, phase sequences, ground faults, as well as any cable breaks. The current data can be read off the device locally on a display.
The current monitoring relay can be integrated into the load feeder without incurring wiring costs by mounting it on a Sirius 3RT2 contactor.
