NRG DIGITAL SOLID STATE RELAYS WHITE PAPER

Alleviating data challenges in Industrial Automation

The trend of Industry 4.0, automation in different manufacturing processes has triggered the implementation of Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems and the use of data-driven predictive modelling to improve the availability of production systems. The implementation of such advanced technologies brings about a number of challenges. This paper introduces the various challenges related to the data collection, its transmission and transformation and how the introduction of intelligent IIoT devices, such as the NRG digital solid state relays by Carlo Gavazzi, can alleviate such issues.

IRC40: INDUCTIVE SENSORS WITH A ROTATABLE HEAD AND QUICK MOUNTING SYSTEM

Maximum installation flexibility for accurate and reliable detection for conveyor systems, materials handling, agriculture, and escalators.

Lainate, September 2022 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture, and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents its new series of inductive sensors, the IRC40.

The IRC40 inductive sensor family is a robust solution for daily indoor and outdoor operations to ensure accurate and reliable detection of actuating parts, such as skid conveyor positioning on conveyor systems, step missing detection on escalators and presence detection in amusement parks.

The IRC40 sensors are resistant to extreme operating conditions such as exposure to wide temperature variations, frequent high pressure, and high-temperature wash-down cycles. They offer flexible adjustment options and adaptability to any applications thanks to the 5-position of the sensing face.

“The IRC40 sensors can be installed in a snap thanks to the push-unlock system of the mounting bracket without the need of any tools; that makes the IRC40 sensor the optimal solution for detection on conveyor systems and production lines when you need a reliable solution also thanks to the increased switching distance and the highest protection degree”, Davide Boschetti, International Product Specialist, says. “With this launch we aim to consolidate and increase our presence in the industries of conveyors and elevator, providing sensors that guarantee detection accuracy and continuity of operation even in harsh conditions”.

Developed in our competence center in Denmark, the IRC40 series has been specifically designed to reduce installation time, adapt to any installation needs and resist high and low temperatures and frequent washdown cycles. These sensors are mainly addressed to OEMs manufacturers of conveyor systems, escalators, agriculture machines, and materials handling in general.

Main technical features
• Rotatable sensing face in 5 different positions without the need of additional tools
• Bracket with push unlock system for easy and quick mounting or replacement
• 4 corner visible LEDs with diagnostic functions
• Extended sensing distance: 22 to 40 mm
• Operating temperature: -25°C to +80°C (-13°F to +176°F)
• IP68 and IP69K for certified full protection of the sensor against high pressure and high-temperature washing cycles
• 40x40x66 mm plastic housing with M12-plug connection
• Flush or non-flush mountable and antivalent output

RSGD 45 MM: SELF-LEARNING SOFT STARTERS WITH MODBUS COMMUNICATION FOR AC INDUCTION MOTORS

Very compact soft starter with minimal settings, self-learning algorithm and real-time monitoring.

Lainate, July 2022 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the RSGD 45mm soft starters with Modbus communication.

The RSGD soft-starters are equipped with a Modbus/RTU communication port via a 2-wire RS485 connection, allowing the user to have a complete and easy real time monitoring of the product. In that way variables for energy consumption, voltage, current and other electrical variables can be easily communicated to a PLC for real-time monitoring of the motor condition.

The integration of a Class 10 electronic overload provides an advanced motor protection and results in further space saving on the electrical panel. Phase sequence protection and overload function can be enabled and disabled easily through the frontal push button.

The RSGD is the easiest to use soft-starter for 3-phase AC motors, as only 3 setting are required (FLC, ramp-up, ramp-down). The self-learning algorithm adjusts the soft starters parameters to work with different applications and varying load conditions without the need of adjusting the initial torque setting.

“As a means to allow our customers to have a real-time condition monitoring of the product, we have selected Modbus as our main communication interface on the RSGD. This serial communication protocol enables detection of any deviations in performance providing sufficient historical data that facilitates troubleshooting activity in the case of faults,” Brian Gauci International Product Specialis states. “High efficiency motors require high levels of starting current, causing more disturbances to the electrical network. Our RSGD soft starters are an advanced solution to counteract this issue.”

Developed in our competence centre in Malta, the RSGD soft starters will significantly enhance our offering to various sales channels and will thus make our offering more appealing to distributors and potential PLB partners. Typical applications are pumps, fans and compressors in Water and waste water, Agriculture, Energy and building efficiency, and HVAC markets.

Main technical features
• Self-learning algorithm to facilitate the user experience and reduce settings
• Initial torque setting not required
• Torque control algorithm for ramp-down
• Current balancing algorithm to reduce the current imbalance to <15%
• Operational voltage: 220 VAC to 600 VAC
• Rated operational current: 12 A up to 45 A
• 2-phase controlled with internal bypass of semi-conductors
• RS485 serial communication port (MODBUS-RTU)
• 2 relay outputs for Alarm and Top of Ramp (RSGD 45mm)
• Enable and disable phase sequence protection
• Enable and disable overload function
• Motor overload protection (Class 10)
• Enable and disable dry run function
