Welcome to another course in the STEP series, Siemens Technical Education Program, designed to prepare our distributors to sell Siemens Energy & Automation products more effectively. This course covers Basics of Electrical Products.
Upon completion of Basics of Electrical Products, you should be able to:
• Explain how Siemens products are used in basic residential, commercial, and industrial applications
• Explain the similarities and differences between load centers, panelboards, switchboards, switchgear, and secondary unit substations
• Identify various Siemens products used in discrete parts manufacturing, assembly, batch processing, and continuous processing
• Identify various Siemens products by trade name
This knowledge will help you better understand customer applications. In addition, you will be better prepared to discuss electrical products and systems with customers. You should complete Basics of Electricity before attempting Basics of Electrical Products. Once you have completed Basics of Electrical Products, you should complete or review any of the other STEP courses that are relevant to your work. The general information provided in Basics of Electrical Products will help you better understand the specific product details in the remaining STEP courses.
If you are an employee of a Siemens Energy & Automation authorized distributor, fill out the final exam tear-out card and mail in the card. We will mail you a certificate of completion if you score a passing grade. Good luck with your efforts.

In order to accomplish this objective, it is useful to briefly discuss our parent company, Siemens AG, and how SE&A fits into the Siemens worldwide business structure.
Siemens AG is one of the world’s largest companies and a leading supplier of electrical and electronic equipment and associated services worldwide. From the initial Siemens company, founded in 1 847, Siemens has grown to employ approximately 430,000 employees in 1 90 countries, including over 69,000 employees in the U. S.
Siemens AG offers a broad range of products and services in the following three business sectors:
• Energy
• Healthcare
• Industry
Siemens AG is headquartered in Berlin and Munich and operates in most countries through regional cluster organizations. In the United States, Siemens has a number of operating companies that each focus on a portion of the total Siemens portfolio of products and services.
SE&A, headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia, is one of the largest of the Siemens U. S.-based operating companies. SE&A is aligned with Siemens’ Industry sector; however, we offer products used in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial applications.
This course provides an overview of SE&A products with emphasis on products sold by our channel partners. It is important to note, however, that a number of SE&A products, systems, and services are beyond the scope of this course.
In order to help you better understand SE&A products, this course will look at where many of our products fit in the flow of energy in sample residential, commercial, and industrial applications. By better understanding where electrical products fit in this flow of energy, you can better understand the physical and electrical requirements of these products.
Keep in mind that the flow of energy from the electric utility will be discussed only briefly in this course because utility power generation, transmission, and distribution products and services are provided Siemens Energy sector companies.
