Siemens Smart Infrastructure presents the new Siprotec 5 Compact device, which is specially designed for the requirements of industry, infrastructure and distribution networks. With its compact size, the high number of inputs and outputs and the universal range of functions, it can be configured to meet the individual requirements for the protection of feeders and motors. Space-saving and as a universal device, it optimally fulfils the requirements for optimising investment and operating costs in power distribution.
Siprotec 5 Compact is part of the proven Siprotec 5 family. Its digital twin (Siprotec DigitalTwin) enables virtual testing of the devices in the cloud within minutes, without hardware and additional effort. In addition, all device data can be recorded, analysed and visualised in the cloud with the help of the IoT application Siprotec Dashboard. All current cyber security standards are of course fulfilled.
"With the new Siprotec 5 Compact protection device, we now offer a universal device that can be designed flexibly, quickly and easily depending on the application. It is based on the established platform. We are thus completing the Siprotec family for use in power distribution as well as in industrial and infrastructure plants," said Robert Klaffus, CEO Digital Grid at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.
Today, protection devices record a large number of different measured values and network status variables. This data is used to protect and automate the energy system, thus contributing to supply security and helping to implement the energy transition. More than two million Siprotec devices from Siemens are installed worldwide.
