Distributor and supplier team up to aid pushbutton migration

Distributor and supplier team up to aid pushbutton migration
A collaboration between RS Components and Siemens will help customers with the phase out of the manufacturer’s SIRIUS 3SB3 22mm pushbutton range and the migration to Siemens’ SIRIUS ACT range of devices. In October 2017, Siemens announced the beginning of a gradual phase-out period – lasting two years – of its 22mm SIRIUS 3SB3 command and signalling devices, providing customers with enough time to migrate to the newer range of ACT pushbutton devices.

Chain of innovations can help place you at the forefront of technology

Chain of innovations can help place you at the forefront of technology
Seeing the real-world effects of technological innovation is clear to some MRO professionals but not to all of us. In some instances this can lead to reduced working pressures, while in others they can be left to (literally) pick up the pieces. Over many years, chain maker Tsubaki has consistently worked to improve the life of MRO professionals. Its chain offers improved performance and reliability in most industrial applications; over 100 years it’s produced a stream of innovations that regularly reset the benchmarks for the technology.
