SIRIUS 3RA64, 3RA65 Compact Starters for IO link

The SIRIUS 3RA6 compact starter with an IO link provides a convenient, point-to-point connection to the control level. Diagnostic data – such as end of service life, end position etc., is not simply indicated on the compact starter itself but transferred to the higher-level controller via the IO link. The outcome: high system availability and greatly reduced wiring overheads in the control circuit coupled with full integration in Totally Integrated Automation.

Advantages at a glance

  • Large quantity of information per device in the control cabinet

  • Higher information density through information bundling of up to 4 starters (reversing and direct-on-line starters) on only one standard line

  • Convenient control from the cabinet door thanks to the optional operator panel

  • Fast and standardized configuration via Port Configuration Tool in STEP7

  • Integration in Totally Integrated Automation
