PUMPS AND FANS ON/OFF MONITORING WHITE PAPER

When knowing the motor is running makes the difference.

Turning a motor ON doesn’t automatically mean that it is running. There may be failures around and the control system (a PLC or a Building Management System - BMS) must be informed that the action is not happening. The usual question is “How valuable is it to know this early?”, to be able to trigger actions and deploy countermeasures. We’ll address the most important aspects and propose some solutions to increase the value of the performance in applications such as water circulation pumps and fans.

INDUCTION MOTOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY REGULATIONS WHITE PAPER

Benefits of using soft starters with high efficiency motors.

Industrial electric motors account for roughly 50% of the worldwide power consumption. Worldwide initiatives have been put in place by different countries in relation to the efficiency improvement of electric motors. Higher quality and more efficient motors have the potential to reduce energy use significantly. The challenge with higher efficiency induction motors (IE 3, IE 4 classes) is that of the higher starting current. Such current magnitudes may cause undesirable effects on the voltage network and may also cause protection circuits to trip. This paper covers the various challenges posed by high efficiency motors and how soft starters as well as variable frequency drives can help users overcome such issues.

UWP 3.0 GATEWAY CONTROLLER WITH NEW SECURE IoT FUNCTIONS

Enhanced cyber security and remote operation are the main features provided by the UWP 3.0 EDGE software release.

Lainate, March 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new UWP 3.0 gateway controller’s software release.

The UWP 3.0 ecosystem’s purpose is to provide a secure, reliable and scalable platform for energy efficiency management, building automation and car parking guidance.

With this further upgrade, the UWP 3.0 consolidates its role as an EDGE gateway, allowing secure remote interaction of the users with the installation in the field.

The main contents of the UWP 3.0 EDGE software release are:
• Enhanced cyber security. Security capabilities have been verified obtaining the Silver Level by UL Cyber security Labs in Frankfurt (https://verify.ul.com/verifications/487). A new UWP 3.0 SE (Security Enhanced) part number with official UL marking and rating will be available.
• Additional operational functions to facilitate daily usage by users at any level, including a backup system, a smoother upgrade procedure and the UCS to UWP 3.0 bridging function to configure meters remotely.
• The new VPN (virtual private network) powered by Carlo Gavazzi, makes it possible to connect to a remote UWP 3.0 item avoiding DNS, firewall, networking issues, simply by logging into our MAIA CLOUD portal.

“The current pandemic situation has accelerated the digitalization process at all levels: cyber security and remote operation are more and more important key selling points,” Alessio Costantini International Product Manager says. “By providing these features into the EDGE package, together with the embedded data automation and control automation capabilities of the UWP 3.0, we are now able to offer a unique combination of features enabling us to have access to more and more user cases and opportunities.”

Developed in our competence centre in Italy, the new EDGE software release for the UWP 3.0 provides an excellent mix of cyber security, communication, technology, flexible monitoring and control functions.

Main technical features
• Compact, 2DIN size
• Embedded Web Server with Energy Management functions
• Embedded Web Server with Car Parking Guidance functions
• Configurable functions for data automation and building automation
• Ecosystem of compatible devices, including more than 220 items: meters, sensors, actuators
• Many fieldbus communication options, including the Modbus, BACnet and LoRaWAN®
• Many IoT integration options
• MAIA Cloud VPN for remote operation
• Security capabilities verified to Silver Level by UL

EIS H: ON/OFF CURRENT SENSOR

The solution for a prompt ON/OFF status detection of critical loads.

Lainate, February 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design,manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new ON/OFF current sensor.

In Building automation and HVAC markets there is often the need to know the running status of pumps and fans, as their failure may cause costly consequences. The EIS H is a current level sensor to monitor the status of loads - mainly motors - whose failure must be immediately detected.

When the devices do not work as expected, the EIS H sensor immediately warns the main controller (PLC or Building Management System) in order to reduce the consequences and speed-up the recovery time.

“The EIS H sensor is a combination of compact size, which allows it to fit in very narrow spaces and a built-in current transformer. As an auxiliary power supply is not needed, the installation procedure is sped-up with no need for further adjustments, this helps to make service quicker and faultless,” Francesco Vedana, International Product Manager, says.“This launch will give us the opportunity to strengthen our position in the market by means of a wider offer.”

Developed by our Competence Centre in Italy, the EIS H current sensor is specifically designed for the ON/OFF monitoring of water circulation pumps, extractor fans and lights in the HVAC and Building automation markets.

Main technical features
• Input current from 200 mA to 60 A
• No settings required
• Solid state AC and DC output
• Built-in current transformer
• Just 22.5 x 55.4 x 47.4 mm size
• For DIN-rail and back panel mounting
