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.

SPDE SERIES: HIGH PERFORMANCE AND COMPACT DIMENSIONS FOR DIN-RAIL MOUNTING POWER SUPPLIES

High power output and ultra-compact design.

Lainate, November 2022 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture, and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new SPDE series, a very compact single-phase DIN-rail power supplies designed for electrical panels with limited space.

The SPDE series consists of 3 frame sizes, starting from 75 W with 32 mm width, to maximum 480 W with 48 mm width.

Its ultra-compact housing design allows it to save up to 50% panel space, making it ideal for applications where space limitations are required.

The high quality of these power supplies is certified by a series of industry approvals: CE, UKCA, UL61010, UL62368.

The SPDE series is extremely suitable for applications where high efficiency and wide operating temperatures are required. Thanks to the built-in PFC (on SPDE..R models) these power supplies assure high operating efficiency up to 94%, and a wide operating temperature range from -40ºC to +70ºC (-40ºF to +158ºF).

Integrated diagnostics and protection functions such as output short circuit, over current, over voltage, over temperature, provide maximum output protection even under abnormal conditions.

“The SPDE is the perfect solution to improve the overall performance and reliability of the SPD series. This new series duly meets customers’ requests in having advanced features in a compact housing,” Matteo Pinciroli, International Product Specialist, says. “With this launch it is our intention to strengthen Carlo Gavazzi’s product offerings with one of the most compact DIN-rail power supplies on the market.”

Main technical features
• Universal input voltage range: 90 VAC to 264 VAC; 120 VDC to 370 VDC
• Output voltage range 12 VDC, 24 VDC or 48 VDC
• Output power range from 75 up to 480 W
• Ultra compact dimensions : 75W – 32 mm wide ; 240 W – 41 mm wide
• Integrated protection: short circuit, over current, over voltage, over temperature
• Built-in active PFC (only in SPDE..R models) for higher efficiency
• DC OK relay indication (only in SPDE..R models)
• Efficiency up to 94%
• CE, UKCA, UL61010, UL62368
• Overvoltage category II

RVBS: VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVE FOR GENERAL PURPOSE USAGE

Compact and cost-effective solution with push-in terminals.

Lainate, November 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 variable frequency drives.

The RVBS is a variable frequency drive for general purpose applications up to 0.75 kW in industrial and residential environments and its open board design results in a very compact solution to fit in small enclosures with limited spaces. Thanks to the push-in type connectors its installation is fast, saving considerable wiring time and it is also equipped with optimized features to control the speed of the 3-phase compressors with an induction motor.

Through its 2 digital inputs and 1 analog input, the RVBS offers a very flexible configuration to adapt to different application needs.

With Industry 4.0, monitoring and data exchange it has become more relevant as a means of improving efficiency or for preventive/predictive maintenance. The RVBS built-in Modbus RTU communication port facilitates its integration with an automation system and/or PLC whilst also allowing real-time status monitoring and data exchange.

“Today’s global trend is toward energy saving and high-efficiency. Variable frequency drives are becoming the solution to fulfill those requirements” Brian Gauci International Product Manager says. “With this launch, it is our intention to further strengthen Carlo Gavazzi’s product offering in one of our strategic industries.”

The most common challenges when using variable frequency drives are dimensions and cost of the product. With the RVBS, developed in our competence center in Malta, we addressed both customer pains by designing a cost-effective product in a very compact platform. Additionally, the push-in connectors are used to minimise wiring time, helping our customers to have an even lower total solution cost.

Main technical features
• Input voltage: 200 – 240 VAC single phase
• Input frequency: 50 / 60 Hz
• Power ratings: 0.55 kW / 0.75 kW
• Rated output current: 2.7 Arms / 5 Arms
• Digital inputs: 2 (programmable)
• Analog inputs: 1 (0 – 10 V)
• RS485 serial communication port (MODBUS-RTU)
• Cooling method: Heatsink (0.55 kW model) / Heatsink + Fan (0.75 kW model)
• 1 relay outputs: 1 for alarm
• Configuration: via configuration software, remote keypad (optional) or via the PLC through the RJ45 port via Modbus
• Approvals/Markings: CE, UKCA
