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.

EM530 AND EM540: THE NEW ENERGY ANALYZERS

Simple, intuitive and easy-to-install remote reading energy analyzers (Modbus or M-bus).

Lainate, November 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents its new series of energy analyzers.

Maintained in the most compact DIN-rail housing for 3-phase meters, the EM530 and the EM540 can display up to 3 energy meters in a single page and a 11-digit MID energy meter with 1 Wh resolution. Furthermore the EM530 non-MID version has an accuracy class of 0.5S suitable for all green-mark applications.

These energy analyzers are able to reduce the commissioning time by intuitive wizard menu to the installers, thanks to their detection of any installation errors and suggestions on how to correct them.

Due to the 100 ms serial data refresh time, the EM530 and the EM540 are suitable for load balancing energy storage (even in presence of no-feed regulations) or EV charging applications.

“With this launch Carlo Gavazzi further expands its range of energy analyzers to meet the new emerging needs coming from the most innovative energy efficiency applications,” Andrea Bernardi International Product Manager says. “It is our intention to provide simple, intuitive, easy-to-install, remote reading energy analyzers (by Modbus or M-Bus), or just simple indicators with pulse retransmission, so as to save time in programming the parameters and in commissioning the monitoring system.”

Developed in our competence centre in Italy, these energy analyzers have been designed to improve the features of the existing product range, providing a complete portfolio of solutions all suitable to be integrated in our energy management monitoring solutions. These meters are targeted at the following Building and Industrial automation’s applications: MID fiscal cost sharing, energy analysis for energy efficiency, power metering for PV energy storage, indoor or temperature controlled EV charging.

ICS E1 INDUCTIVE SENSORS: HIGH RELIABLE DETECTION IN MOBILE EQUIPMENT

Prevent potential failures and false actuations due to electrical load dumps or high electromagnetic radiated interferences generated by radio transmitters.

Lainate, October 2021 - 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 ICS E1.

The ICS E1 inductive sensor family is a robust solution for daily outdoor operations to ensure accurate and reliable detection of actuating parts such as hydraulic pistons, gear speed and position, crane position and movement, on vehicles such as waste disposal trucks, mobile cranes, concrete mixers, tractors, fire trucks, harvesting machinery, buses and forklifts.

The ICS E1 sensors are resistant to extreme operating conditions such as frequent exposure to high levels of shocks and vibrations, wide temperature variations, voltage peaks of up to 200 V, frequent high pressure and high temperature wash-down cycles.
They are also immune to radiated electromagnetic interference of up to 200 V/m.

“Extremely robust, the ICS E1 sensors provide an outstanding immunity to false actuation when exposed to radiated electromagnetic interferences emitted by radio transmitters; that makes the E1 sensor the optimal solution for detection on mobile equipment”, Aldo Caputo, International Product Manager, says. “With this launch we aim to consolidate and increase our presence in the industry of mobile equipment, providing sensors that guarantee accuracy in detection and continuity of operation of these type of vehicles operating in harsh conditions”.

Developed in our competence centre in Denmark, the ICS E1 series has been specifically designed to allow reliable operation in harsh conditions typical of mobile equipment so as to reduce vehicle’ downtime. These sensors are mainly addressed to OEMs manufacturers of garbage trucks, concrete trucks, fire trucks, mobile cranes, agriculture machines, heavy-duty vehicles, forklifts and buses.

Main technical features
• E1 type approval: a rigorous certification for mobile equipment and automotive industries
• Immunity to radiated interference of up to 200 V/m
• Integrated load dump protection to prevent voltage peaks on the on-board power supply, generated by a battery disconnection while the alternator is charging
• Wide voltage supply range, from 8 to 60 VDC, to grant correct operation with any vehicle’s battery condition
• High switching distances from 4 to 22 mm to allow safe installation on the machine
• Extended operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C
• 20 g vibration resistance and 100 g shock resistance 40 g continuous shock resistance
• IP68 and IP69K protection for a certified full protection of the sensor against high pressure and high temperature washing cycles
• M12, M18 and M30 rugged stainless-steel housings, 2m PUR cable or M12-plug, and on request, pigtail solutions with connectors typical of mobile applications are available for increased flexibility in the installation
