How IIoT drives operational profitability improvements

IIoT gives manufacturers the ability to control their business performance in real-time and extend real-time control across their value chain. It is eliminating many of the constraints traditional technology has imposed on automation systems, particularly those that limit the ability to deliver operational profitability improvements. In a white paper Peter Martin of Schneider Electric explores […]

Inverters protect themselves and connected equipment

  It is easy to assume that all inverters drives offer similar functionality, but this is not the case. Mitsubishi FR-F800 Series inverter drives are smarter than ever in their ability to protect themselves and connected equipment. Variable speed drives (VSDs) control and track motor current and output torque. This enables them to providing early […]

Profitable safety from IIoT modernisation

  Production plants face two major challenges: the increasing speed of business and integrating emerging technologies. Both play an important role in determining organisation competitiveness needed for survival. Moving to an IIoT-enabled control environment can rendering asset and operations in a reliable, efficient way whilst maintaining profitable safety. Plant automation must not only control a […]

Is direct torque control enough to make you change?

Initially, DC drives were used for variable speed control because they achieved good torque and speed response with high accuracy. DC offers accurate and fast torque control, high dynamic speed response and is simple to control. However, while a DC drive produces an easily controlled torque from zero to base speed and beyond, the motor’s […]
