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.

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

RSGT SERIES: GENERAL PURPOSE SELF-LEARNING SOFT STARTER FOR 3-PHASE AC INDUCTION MOTORS UP TO 45 KW

Minimal setting thanks to the self-learning algorithm and real-time monitoring.

Lainate, July 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 soft starters.

The RSGT family is very easy to use soft-starters for AC 3-phase induction motors. In order to maximise the ease of use without compromising performance, only 3 settings are required (FLC, ramp-up, ramp-down).

The self-learning algorithm adjusts the soft starter’s parameters to work with different applications and varying load conditions. It is active at every start to ensure that the motor starts with the optimal settings all the time.The RSGT soft-starters are equipped with a Modbus/RTU communication port with a 2-wire RS485 connection, allowing the user to have a complete and easy real-time monitoring of the product. This serial communication protocol enables the detection of any deviations in performance and also provides sufficient historical data that facilitates troubleshooting activity in case of faults.

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

“The drive for higher energy efficiency is impacting the world of industrial motors. As of July 2021, 3-phase motors from 0.75 kW to 1,000 kW must be IE3 efficiency or higher. Starting currents of higher efficiency motors can reach more than 10 times the motor rated current and the RSGT soft starters can counteract this issue by reducing the starting current by an average of 50%,” Brian Gauci International Product Specialist says. “With this launch it is our intention to further strengthen our product portfolio by enhancing the line of soft starters for general purpose applications and making it more attractive to distributors as well as expanding to North America and Europe.”

Developed in our competence centre in Malta, this soft starter series has been designed to provide our customers with a more advanced product offering in the HVAC, Water treatment, Agriculture and the Smart building market segments.

Main technical features
• Self-learning algorithm: optimises motor starts in every condition
• Best in class current reduction with three phase control
• Easy to use and set-up time savings: only 3 adjustments required
• Energy saving through internal bypass relays
• Robust design allows up to 12 starts per hour
• Torque controlled ramp down: smoother deceleration of pumps
• Versions up to 400 VAC are internally supplied: less wiring required
• Real-time monitoring via Modbus RTU communication over RS485 connection
