SOLID STATE RELAYS WHITE PAPER

The benefits of utilising a heat sink at a higher temperature.

Heatsink sizing is one of the most critical steps when using solid state relays (SSRs). The heatsink provides the necessary thermal dissipation for the power losses in the SSR power unit. This paper gives a detailed thermal analysis of the SSR and heatsink and proposes ways how OEMs can:
- Save space in the electrical cabinet
- Increase the load current in the SSR
- Save on overall system cost

UWP-A: LONG RANGE WIRELESS SOLUTIONS FOR ENERGY MONITORING

LoRaWAN® certified endpoint adapter for US915 MHz band.

Lainate, January 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today is proud to introduce an important update to our LoRaWAN® certified adapter UWP-A.

Minimizing installation costs and avoiding expensive cabling, which could have a huge impact on the project timeline, are very often the key targets in energy efficiency monitoring, cost allocation or asset management projects.

The best option in such cases is to rely on a solid and secure wireless fieldbus. The UWP-A adapter provides long range distance communication (up to 10 km) to Carlo Gavazzi’s energy meters and power analyzers, for an easy integration into existing standard LoRaWAN® gateways (private networks) and LoRaWAN® public networks (smart cities).

By working on the license free US915 MHz band, the UWP-A adapter allows North American installers to deploy the requested network of energy analyzers and easily join the available LoRaWAN® network either public or private.

The UWP-A is the key to convert any Carlo Gavazzi energy analyzer into an IIoT device, for joining a LoRaWAN® network and sending data to Energy Management Systems, Energy Billing Portals or Facility/Asset Management Solutions.

“If compared to traditional architectures based on gateways, modems and mobile networks, this solution minimizes the overall Total Cost of Ownership”, Alessio Costantini International Product Manager says. “The USA, Canada and Mexico versions are now available.”

Developed by our Competence center in Italy, this update allows a further expansion towards North American countries, in order to meet the requirements coming from the market, providing installers, system integrators, and ESCos with a great user experience.

Main technical features
• Compatible with most of Carlo Gavazzi’s meters and power analyzers
• Plug’n play set-up via UCS software
• USB connection to PC; power supply through USB
• Wireless communication through the North American US915 MHz license free band
• Compatible with standard LoRaWAN® gateways
• Up to 10 km wireless communication distance in open air
• Universal power supply
• High performance antenna included

MC88C: THE HIGHLY VERSATILE SAFETY MAGNETIC SENSOR SERIES WITH A LONG SWITCHING DISTANCE

Suitable for monitoring safety gates in industrial harsh environments.

Lainate, December 2020 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today is proud to introduce its new family of MC88C which widens the range of MC safety magnetic sensors together with the recently launched MC36C sensor.

The new MC88C series of magnetically-coded REED safety magnetic sensors is the ideal solution to monitor the position of sliding, hinged and removable safety guards, insensitive to dirt and dust, especially where a precise approach is not possible and greater tolerances are required.

When connected to a safety module, these sensors are suitable for safety gate applications up to PLe/Category 4 according to EN ISO 13849-1. They can stop or disconnect dangerous motions when mobile protections are opened or displaced.

“The new MC88C sensor series is extremely versatile and easy to install”, Davide Boschetti International Product Specialist says. “By selecting one of the three actuators it is possible to change the switching distance between 5, 8, and 18 mm.This extra-wide sensing range is mainly targeted at applications for monitoring gates in safety fences, for covers, lids and roll up doors and for position detection.”

Main technical features
• Output configuration: 2NO, 1NO + 1NC, 2NO + 1NC
• 2m PVC cable, M8-Plug or pig-tail with M12 connector
• Left or right exit connection versions
• LED version also available for all mechanical variants
• Assured switching distance (Sao): 5 mm with actuator MC88CM1, 8 mm with actuator MC88CM2, 18 mm with actuator MC88CM3
• Assured switch-off distance (Sar): 15 mm with actuator MC88CM1, 18 mm with actuator MC88CM2, 30 mm with actuator MC88CM3
• Operating temperature between -25 and +80°C (-13 to 176 °F)
• Standard dimensions: 88 x 25 x 13 mm
• Rated operating voltage: 12-24 VAC/VDC
• Rated operating current: 0.25 A (resistive load)
• Maximum switching load: 6 W (resistive load)
• Maximum operating frequency: 100 Hz
• Degree of protection: IP67
• CE and cULus approved
