Avoiding installation issues with PWM inverters

Avoiding installation issues with PWM inverters   Variable speed AC drives have become very popular because of their energy efficiency. Additionally, they offer flexible control of processes and machinery using maintenance-free AC motors. AC drives use power switching techniques and generate high rates of change of voltage. Most modern AC drives use voltage-source PWM inverters. […]

Linking asset maintenance and energy costs

Linking asset maintenance and energy costs   A recent white paper, Schneider Electric looks the relationship between asset maintenance and energy costs in pumping. Assets such as pumps need maintaining on an ongoing basis, and maintenance costs are 25% of TCO. Thus maintenance practices warrant examination of their contribution to energy-influenced savings. In pumping installations, […]

Embedded safety over Ethernet

As safety technology advances, it is increasingly popular to embed the functions in to automation equipment like variable speed drives. According to Schneider Electric, as Industrial Ethernet becomes the network of choice, then both will start to merge. Hence, the resulting integration of embedded safety over Ethernet will extend the benefits of both. Modern industrial […]
