2 mins read

Mouser Electronics has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Siemens covering its industrial automation portfolio.

Siemens' operations encompass factory automation and digitalisation in the process and manufacturing industries, intelligent infrastructure for buildings and distributed energy systems, rail transport solutions, as well as health technology and digital healthcare services.

Mouser said that it will be stocking parts from Siemens in a variety of product categories, including networking devices, human-machine interface (HMI) solutions, circuit protection and power supplies.

"Mouser is very pleased to add Siemens to our list of trusted supplier partners. They are a world-renowned leader of industrial automation solutions, and we're excited to offer their innovative products, technologies and services to our line card for customers," said Jeff Newell, Senior Vice President of Products for Mouser Electronics.

Siemens said that by adding Mouser Electronics as a channel partner it would be better able to support its customers and enhance the company’s worldwide distribution network.

According to James Washburn, Vice President and Segment Head Circuit Protection and Controls at Siemens, "We'll be able to satisfy more of the requirements of our existing customers, and, leveraging Mouser's excellent design and supply-chain services and logistics support, we can drive new growth opportunities, expand our presence and get our products into the hands of engineers and buyers even faster."

Mouser now offers Siemens' industrial automation products, such as the SIRIUS 2 contactors, which provide high contact reliability, prolonged endurance and usability in extreme conditions. The SIRIUS 2 contactors feature a modular design and a high performance-to-size ratio, saving valuable control cabinet space.

Also available, the Siemens SIRIUS ACT series offers a portfolio of designed push buttons, indicator lights and switches. Constructed with genuine metal and high-grade plastics and engineered with smart functions and communication capabilities, these push buttons, indicator lights and switches have been element-tested to ensure reliability for mission-critical operations.

In addition, Mouser will be stocking Siemens’ SITOP PSU100C power supplies which feature a space-saving slim design and are suitable for distributed applications in control boxes or small control cabinets. The SITOP PSU100C power supplies are characterized by their low power loss over the entire load range. Power loss is extremely low even during no-load operation, making them ideal for machinery and equipment that is often in standby mode.

Also available from Mouser will be Siemens’ LOGO! logic modules which are programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that enable quick implementation of automation projects. Using the LOGO! modules, designers can quickly implement functions, such as timer switch, timer relay, counter, and auxiliary relay. Their compact, modular design saves cabinet space and allows for easy integration.
