Siemens launches new range of MCBs, DBs

Siemens has launched a range of miniature circuit Breakers (MCBs) and distribution boards (DBs) under the Betagard range. Among the unique features of MCBs is the patented slide latch release feature for removal of MCBs from DIN rail without use of any tools. The company also announced the launch of a range of energy-efficient industrial motors meeting the efficiency classes International Efficiency 2 (IE2) and IE3.

Dr Armin Bruck, MD, Siemens, said, “Currently, nearly 70 per cent of industrial power consumption is due to motors and an energy-efficient motor will drive cost savings significantly. If all the motors that are manufactured and sold in India in one year were only high efficiency motors, the energy saved is equivalent to the energy produced by a 600 MW power plant in one full year.”

According to IEEMA, over two million motors are produced in India each year that together have an energy saving potential of more than 5 billion kWh of power if replaced with IE3 motors. Considering the investment for a 600 MW power plant these energy-efficient motors have the potential to save nearly Rs 3,500 crore for the country as a whole.
