The Australian Food and Beverage industry has extensive demands for cleanliness, ruggedness, and quality. Equipment that does not meet these standards wastes valuable time through preventable failures and downtimes. This can make it increasingly challenging to produce the ideal product that checks all the compliance boxes.

The new Siemens SIRIUS ACT push buttons and signalling devices available from APS Industrial meet all these requirements to form the ultimate family of push buttons and signalling devices for food and beverage applications. At APS Industrial and Siemens, pressing a button is more than just a matter of pressing a button – it’s the start of something special! The Siemens SIRIUS ACT range offers a unique portfolio of elegantly designed push buttons, indicator lights & switches that are the perfect embodiment of style, intelligence, and physical toughness.

Their IP69K rating means that functionality is preserved even when dust or water under high pressure are involved. Even oils, caustic solutions and extreme environmental influences typical in Food and Beverage applications cannot disrupt reliable operation.

The various communication interfacing options provided by SIRIUS ACT enable simple combinations of push buttons and signalling devices, HMI touch screens and industrial PCs, which means that complex input stations can be set up without extensive wiring and engineering time and effort. Integration into the TIA Portal also enables them to be visually displayed for better harmonisation with the hardware, thus simplifying and speeding up hardware configuration.

Easy handling also means easy installation. An innovative snap-on concept makes the task of installing a unit so effortless that it can be done with one hand. And because everything is so simple, SIRIUS ACT further reduces the risk of incorrect installation.

Available exclusively through your local distributor APS Industrial, we are proud to provide the Australian industry with the highest quality products from around the globe.
