Liebe Leserinnen und Leser, Kleine Dinge entfalten oft groe Wirkung. Manchmal entsteht diese Wirkung aber auch, wenn kleine Dinge fehlen: Rauchmelder beispielsweise. Dies zeigen jngste Flle, bei denen zum Teil hohe Sachschden entstanden, leider aber auch wieder Menschen zu Schaden oder gar ums Leben kamen. Der finanzielle Aufwand fr die elektronischen Wchter erscheint im Nachhinein dagegen meist gering. Unsere neuen Rauchmelder mit Funkmodul machen es dabei noch einfacher, vor Ort zu warnen und den Alarm an eine zentrale Stelle weiterzuleiten (S. 3). Besser als jede Alarmvorrichtung ist es sicher, wenn erst gar nichts anbrennt. Hier kommt der modernen Installationstechnik eine auerordentlich wichtige Rolle zu. Denn zu den hufigsten Brandursachen zhlen immer noch fehlerhafte elektrische Gerte und Fehler in elektrischen Anlagen. Leitungs- und FI-Schutzschalter, die im Fehlerfall blitzschnell abschalten, knnen hier das Risiko begrenzen. Die Kombination von FI/LS-Schaltern in einem Gert erffnet darber hinaus neue Mglichkeiten da, wo umfassender Schutz bei gleichzeitig hoher Verfgbarkeit der elektrischen Anlage gefordert ist (S. 14). Auerdem blicken wir in diesem Heft zurck auf zwei Projekte, an deren Gelingen vor allem auch unsere Partner im Handwerk mageblich beteiligt waren. Viel Spa beim Lesen wnscht Ihnen

Electrical Installation from A to Z appears together with the Electrical Trade Guild at the Consumenta show in Nuremberg, Germany

Great deal of interest from consumers shows the need for consultation
Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) presented its range of electrical installation systems at the Consumenta show in Nuremberg, Germany, for the first time from October 29 to November 6. On show were the possibilities offered by centralized switching of lights and blinds both inside and outside, as well as solutions for saving energy and protecting house and home, as well as expensive electrical equipment, from damage caused by lightning and overvoltages. Together with the Electrical Trade Guild (Elektroinnung) of the German region of Franconia, Siemens informed visitors to the consumer show about issues such as E-Check and the cross-vendor HEA Convenient installation campaign (HEA is the German Trade Association for Energy Marketing and Applications). Visitors with an interest in building and renovation were provided with information about the wide variety of possibilities opened up by modern electrical installation systems. Nowadays, builders and renovators often do not pay enough attention to the scope of their electrical installation equipment. On the one hand, this brings with it the risk that the number of sockets, communication terminals, aerial sockets, or light outlets will have to be changed at a later date, which can be expensive in terms of both time and money; on the other hand, it could even constitute a safety hazard, if insufficient sockets are provided for the number of devices. In any case, those wishing to construct buildings should plan the scope of their electrical installation equipment early on in the process, together with architects or electrical experts, says Godehardt Schneider, Head of the Electrical Installation Technology Division at Siemens A&D. We can put interested parties in touch with a local consultant electrician on request.

jacent pushbuttons are interlocked in the software, so that a malfunction will not occur if both are pushed simultaneously. The EIB Tool Software (ETS) can be used to select the application programs, which assign specific parameters and addresses and are transferred to the UP bus coupling unit.

The wave uni M 255 smoke-detector module extends the functionality of the Delta reflex battery smoke detector by adding the option of radio communication. When smoke is detected, this means that, in addition to a local alarm sounding on the smoke detector, an alarm is also output via radio. As well as the smoke alarm, which the module outputs via radio, a switching command is also sent to the radio-linked switch actuators, which then activate the connected alarm sensors, such as horns, sirens, warning lights, etc. If the battery needs to be replaced, the detector indicates this both visually and acoustically. This alarm message is also output via radio. Touch-Manager wave can then display the alarm message and command switching when smoke is detected, as well as information about the detectors battery status, or this data can be to the transferred

High-grade electrical engineering in the Colosseo


Electrical installations for hotel complex require the cooperation of specialized enterprises

The newly built Hotel Colosseo in the Europa Park in Rust has been creating holiday mood mixed with southern flair, even though it is to the north of the Alps, for more than a year now. The luxury hotel with around 1450 beds near Freiburg in Breisgau, Germany, is based on a typical Italian city silhouette. The most modern electrical engineering technology from Siemens is hidden behind the renaissance facades and the colosseum arches. Four partner companies have contributed with their special expertise in building technology, lighting and safety devices to ensure unrestricted comfort for the guests.

Up to 100 installation technicians at the construction site


The complete installation contract, i.e. the power supply from the substation all the way to the circuits, internal and external lighting, safety equipment, building automation with KNX/EIB, was awarded to EGT Gebudetechnik GmbH in Triberg. This was no small challenge even for the electrical engineering specialist and despite their experience in large projects: After all, the order was worth 3 million

Naturally, in detailed coordination with the building progress and the other services; even if we just considered routing and short-term changes; sometimes we had up to 100 technicians at the construction site, says Hringer as he describes the complexity of project management. Finally the electrical system could be delivered in time: according to Hringer, everyone the employees and the subcontractors - acted in concert. EGT assigned parts of the order to other specialists.

When in the Colosseo the facade lighting of the Piazza is required to create a special mood, this is no wizardry for the electrician, Paul Joseph. The in-house electrician of the Europa Park, has implemented the complete installations in the technology-intensive areas, such as restaurant, hotel bar and the kitchen as well as the EIB control for internal and external lighting and helped parameterize many other functions. Our part doesnt end there, though. In the future, too, we will be looking after the entire KNX/EIB system with approx. 1200 stations, explains the electrical specialist, Paul Joseph. Since completion, there has been no lack of ideas regarding the optimization of functions. The flags are fully automatically secured, the frost protection device for palm trees is con-

Client specifications included the central building control system, ventilation and heating control, the lighting system, a video surveillance system, access control and a fire alarm system, further complemented by communications as well as low-voltage equipment. system automatically switches to the arenas independent power supply. Another feature integrated into the building management system is the Gamma instabus EIB lighting control system, which ensures optimal, glare-free visibility. With Gamma instabus, various scenarios, individually adapted to the respective event, can be called up at the push of a button. Lighting requirements for training sessions, for example, differ from those for internationally broadcast television events also in terms of power consumption. Thanks to sophisticated systems, the arenas entire lighting can be switched on and off at a central location, and individual lamps or the lighting of specific areas controlled from a PC. For the power supply which is also supplied from a single source huge batteries and diesel generators ensure that power is available even if the arenas power supply should unexpectedly fail.

A video surveillance system (CCTV), which reports events to the control center 24 hours a day via 27 fixed and five rotatable cameras as well as two digital recording devices, was also installed for safety and security reasons. The safety and security solution is supported by the CerPass integrated access control system. 45 non-contact card readers and seven controllers grant only authorized persons with VIP cards access to the VIP areas, the elevators as well as to the employee areas. The Siemens Arena is the first project of this size in Lithuania in which telecommunications and building management technologies for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and lighting were combined for all areas.

It is now even easier and faster to configure and commission the new digital inputs, switch actuators and blind actuators, and it can also be done in a more consistent manner. This is because, in the new delivery condition, only the communication objects that are essential for minimum functionality are visible. This makes standard commissioning very simple. If required, other functions and objects can always be switched on using the ETS. To ensure problem-free parameterization, the system startup engineer has the choice to either parameterize all channels identically or to parameterize them individually. The new housing design supports this simplicity. Some new features have thus been implemented in the new devices, irrespective of the housand bus operation modes using a standard pushbutton with integrated LED. The LED indicates the current operating status. On the actuators, the outputs can each be controlled in direct operation via an integrated pushbutton (there is a separate button for each output).

Two new ranges of mechanical and digital time switches

Links to the topic: www.siemens.de/beta www.siemens.de/beta-news Contact: adsupport@siemens.com

Siemens is now offering two new ranges of mechanical and digital time switches for the accurate switching of electrical devices and systems. All devices are characterized by very simple operation and excellent functionality and accuracy. The digital time switches feature integrated menu-assisted 4-key plain-text operation.
The new mechanical time switches are available in synchronous and quartz versions. With the synchronous time switches, the switch-actuating wheel is driven by a synchronous motor and is thus frequency-dependent. However, with quartz time switches, a quartz electronic circuit supplies the drive with a stabilized frequency so that the clock is not dependent on the line frequency. The device continues to run in the event of a power failure. The 7LF5 3014 and 7LF5 3015 mechanical time switches are easy to install using plug & play technology. The correct time (CET) and day are set automatically during commissioning using the fast mode. These models also feature an automatic daylightsaving adjustment, which means that the clock is always set to the correct season auto-

matically (manual setting/resetting is no longer necessary).

Simple digital
Mini, Top, Professional and Astro: These are the four new time switching device ranges. The clocks are as easy to program as those found in cell phones. The time switch (Top, Professional and Astro) guides the user through the text menu in five languages, using four programming keys. Each required entry is displayed clearly. The Professional and Astro models can also be programmed via a data key on the PC. To achieve this, the data key is connected to the computer via a USB adapter and programmed using dedicated software. Once programs have been created, they can be saved, edited, managed, and reused time and again. Even complex control programs can be created quickly and easily. Programs on the data key can be transferred by reconnecting it to another clock. The devices are available in voltage variants of 24 volts, 120 volts or 230 volts, depending on the model.

gram, which allows you to deactivate the clock for a specific period. The random program allows the switching times to be changed randomly on a daily basis, which simulates the presence of personnel within a building. The devices are offered with either one or two channels. The one-channel time switch can be used as a pulse clock with up to 84 start times and an optional pulse duration of between one and 59 seconds. It can be used to control the recess bell in a school, for example. A maximum of 56 control programs can be entered in the one-channel time switch, while a maximum of 28 programs can be entered per channel in the twochannel switch.

Astronomically good
Once the appropriate degrees of longitude and latitude have been entered, the Astro time switch calculates the sunrise and sunset times for every day of the year. You can also specify how long before or after sunrise/sunset the switching operation should take place. The switching operation is thus adapted to the building location automatically. In this way, lights can be switched on in the evening and off in the morning with incredible accuracy (i.e., to the very minute). Blinds can also be closed in the evening and opened again in the morning.

User-friendly switching
As well as daily and weekly programs, the digital time switches also feature many other user-friendly functions. The Professional model has what is known as a holiday pro-

Live and error-free


Optimum plant availability thanks to all-in protection

The 5SU1 RCBO, part of the range of Beta built-in installation devices, provides combined personal, fire and line protection in a single device. In the event of an error, only the affected electric circuit is disabled by means of a switch, one of which is available separately for each electric circuit. The user benefits from increased operational reliability and plant availability.
Circuit-protection devices ensure that electrical energy can be dealt with safely. The increased use of residual-current-operated circuit-breakers (RCCBs) and miniature circuitbreakers has made a particularly significant contribution to improved safety. In modern installations, high availability is becoming increasingly important. The compact design and high functionality of combined RCBOs

offer new opportunities for a modern, userfriendly electrical installation. Comparing conventional installations with installations using RCBOs enables you to see the advantages.

Conventional installation
With conventional electrical installations (see Fig. 1), the incoming supply is routed via a back-up fuse, such as a meter fuse. For the subsequent RCCBs, several miniature circuitbreakers are connected in series for each external conductor. The RCCB is responsible for fault protection and also, in the case of rated residual currents of up to 30 mA, additional protection against dangerous shock currents in the event of direct bodily contact. Up to 300 mA, fire protection against electricallyignited fires caused by earth faults is also provided. The miniature circuit-breaker prevents conductors being damaged due to overload or short-circuit. Once an earth fault in one of the series-connected electric circuits has trig-

gered the RCCB, all other electric circuits, including those which are fault-free, are isolated from the supply. These devices cannot be operated again until the fault has been corrected. If an installation is designed in this way, the following factors must be taken into account: B In order for the plant to be dimensioned correctly in relation to the RCCB, you must ensure that the RCCB is not overloaded by load currents that are too high. To achieve this, you must ensure that: the rated current of the upstream fuse is not higher than the rated current of the RCCB, or the sum of the rated currents of the overcurrent protective devices connected in series after the RCCB does not exceed the rated current of the RCCB, or the rated current of the RCCB is not exceeded for a long period by taking into account the demand factors of the connected electric circuits. B The single-pole miniature-circuit breakers only isolate the external conductors from the supply in the disabled state. The neutral conductor remains conductive on the load side.

method: The incoming supply is still routed via a back-up fuse (e.g., meter fuse, SHU switch), but each individual electric circuit now has its own RCBO. In the event of a fault, only the affected electric circuit is disabled. The RCBO is responsible for fault, fire and line protection. This type of installation offers numerous benefits to planners and users: B The rated current of the upstream overcurrent protective device (e.g., meter fuse, SHU switch) is not restricted by the subsequent rated current intensities of the RCBOs (only factors such as conductor cross-section and shutdown conditions, are decisive). B The RCBO protects itself against overload, thus making it impossible for an undesired overload caused by load currents that are too high to occur. B In the event of an earth fault in an electric circuit, as for a short-circuit or overload, only the affected electric circuit is disabled. All error-free electric circuits remain live. Plant availability remains high accordingly. B The use of RCBOs for each electric circuit meets the requirements of DIN 18015-2 (Elec-

trical installations in residential buildings Part 2: Nature and extent of minimum equipment). In accordance with this standard, the RCCBs should be assigned to the electric circuits in such a way that disabling one RCCB does not cause all electric circuits to fail. Selective RCCBs are exempt from this. B With RCBOs (1-pole + N), the neutral conductor is always switched at the same time. This means that all poles of 1-phase loads are isolated from the supply, providing optimum safety against vagabond voltages in the disabled state.

New range of RCBOs

Tailor-made, combined protection


The new 5SU1... RCBOs, part of the Beta range of built-in installation devices, is a compact circuit-protection device, which combines the protective functions of miniature circuit-breakers and RCCBs in a single device. This makes configuring and installing electrical plant much easier. The user benefits from a modern electrical installation with high plant availability. An advantage of this device type is the rear-mounted port for the standard pin busbar, as found on miniature circuit-breakers, which makes it much easier to connect pin busbars and conductors at the same time. It is easy to check whether the connecting lead has been mounted correctly. The version for a rated switching capacity of 10 kA is also characterized by a particularly distinctive touch guard. The reach-round protection ensures that fingers are protected even in the terminal area and when conductors are connected. The devices can also be removed from the standard mounting rail or released from a busbar network without the need for a tool. Proven add-on components from the miniature-circuit-breaker range, such as auxiliary contact blocks, fault-signal contacts, undervoltage releases, shunt releases, and remote-controlled mechanisms, can be used, meaning that the devices can be employed in a wide range of applications, from those in residential buildings to those in non-residential buildings and industry.

Fast remote switching

Remote-controlled mechanism for RCCBs


The 5ST3 051 remote-controlled mechanism for 5SM3-range RCCBs supplements the range of remote-controlled mechanisms for miniature circuit-breakers. Preferred locations of use for the mechanisms are spacious operating sites, which are not always occupied, such as water treatment plant or radio stations, and automated plant for energy and operation management. Using a remote-controlled mechanism for the Beta circuit-protection devices provides the user with direct and immediate access to the plant even if it is remote or in a location that is hard to reach, as well as fast restarts following a fault. Benefits: a reduction in both the time required and costs involved. The remote-controlled mechanism is operated via a mechanical function switch. When in the OFF position, the remote-controlled mechanism is disabled and can also be locked. RC OFF prevents remote switching and only allows the RCCB to be operated manually. For example, in the event of a service job, this ensures that illegal remote switching is prevented. When in the RC ON position, Remote ON and Remote OFF" switching is possible, as well as on-site operation. If a fault is triggered, the connected RCCB and remote-controlled mechanism handles move to the OFF position. The switch may only be restarted once any hazard has been eliminated. Following shutdown, the user also has to acknowledge this for the remotecontrolled mechanism by means of a RESET (OFF) command. With its mounting depth of 70 mm, the remote-controlled mechanism matches the Beta product range. The remote-controlled mechanism can also be equipped with 5ST301 auxiliary contact blocks in order to signal the RCCBs switching state.

The 5ST3 remote-controlled mechanism gives direct access to the plant.

KNX/EIB all packed up


New Gamma training case gives a detailed insight into the world of KONNEX
The whole Gamma instabus world in case format: Siemens has been marketing this instabus-KNX/EIB (now Gamma instabus) demonstration system for training and presentation purposes since 1995, and it has come to be known in the industry as the EIB dollhouse. Now, the Gamma training case (GTC) has been adapted to customers' new requirements and many functions have been added to it. Using the case, users can experience all the Gamma instabus modes of operation, while taking up a minimum of space.
All devices, displays and operator functions have been arranged in a clearer manner and can be reached from the front. The design components (pushbuttons, switches, sensors, and displays) are located on the panel, which folds out to the right. They are grouped around a model floor plan, which clearly shows a living/dining area, a staircase and a study. The system devices, such as the powersupply unit, USB interface controller blocks and actuators, are situated on an integrated Alpha distribution board panel.

modules do not have to be removed in order to press the programming key.

Long-lasting and rugged


The developers were particularly anxious that no, or as few as possible, mechanical and other parts that are subject to wear were used, in order to prevent malfunctions, particularly during the blinds simulation. In place of the mechanical parts, maintenance-free LEDs demonstrate the corresponding function in the model floor plan. The case itself is made from impact-resistant material reinforced with an aluminum frame and its trolley design ensures excellent mobility.

presence simulations and connecting to Ethernet (LAN) can also be demonstrated. The training version also contains a main-line module, which is required for a certified KNX/EIB training session.

You can order the Gamma training case from your regional sales coordinators: Standard version (E20001-Y2950-P400) Full version (E20001-Y2960-P400) Training version (E20001-Y2960-P400)

Various equipment versions


As well as the standard equipment version, there is also a full version, which expands the range of functions offered by the GTC. This gives you the option of demonstrating how a motion detector is activated, as well as the heating and cooling simulation temperature control. Conditional operations, alarms or
