VPN IN OPERATIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHITE PAPER

Secure remote access in building automation and energy monitoring applications.

This document aims at presenting system integrators, installers and operators of energy monitoring and building automation applications a solution to protect their remote access to the target system. The proposed solution is a secure Virtual Private Network (henceforth VPN) tunnelling, described in the following chapters.

PHASE OR NEUTRAL LOSS

PHASE OR NEUTRAL LOSS IN BUILDINGS WHITE PAPER

Trivial failures which may cause very expensive chain effects.

Phase and neutral loss can be very costly failures for the end user. We will introduce some criteria and tools to reduce or clear their effects. After having a look at how electrical distribution systems are deployed, and at what happens in case of failure, we will show how to use some tools to quickly detect them and react before damage occurs. In this way the added value for the end user is huge in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the entire building.

THE NRG DIGITAL SOLID STATE RELAYS CAN NOW ADAPT TO LINE VOLTAGE VARIATIONS

Ensuring stable power output for optimal product quality.

Lainate, July 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacturing, and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents a new feature on the NRG digital solid state relays, the voltage compensation.

With switching, monitoring and diagnostic capabilities available via the communication interface, the NRG digital solid state relays provide greater connectivity in industrial automation machinery offering manufacturers unlimited opportunities to improve productivity, predict equipment failure and provide remote access possibilities down to the solid state relay level.

Variation in mains voltage is a common issue that impairs the accuracy of the heating process. With voltage compensation, the NRG solid state relays are able to keep a constant power output despite any voltage fluctuations. Available on the RGx1P..N variants, voltage compensation ensures reduction of scrap and improved end-product quality.

“This new feature will complement the switching functionality of the NRG solid state relays to guarantee better temperature regulation”, Dora Lee Borg International Product Specialist says. “This is particularly useful for sensitive heating applications and also open loop temperature control systems.”

Developed in our competence centre in Malta, the NRG has been designed to suit any heating application where precise temperature control is crucial and where unplanned machine stoppages can result in a considerable loss of revenue.

Typical applications are plastic injection machines, packaging machines, drying and curing processes, semiconductor manufacturing, and glass tempering machines.

Main technical features
• NRG controller with PROFINET, EtherNET/IP™ or Modbus RTU interface
• Max. 32 NRG solid state relays (RG..CM..N) in 1 NRG bus chain
• NRG solid state relays go up to 660 VAC 65 A, 90 A (versions without heatsink)
• Selectable switching modes: ON/OFF, Burst, Advanced Full Cycle, Distributed Full Cycle, Phase Angle and Soft Start
• Voltage Compensation
• Predictive failure detection with Load deviation indication
• Read-outs: Current, Voltage, Power, Energy consumption kWh, Load and SSR Running hours
• Malfunction detection: Mains loss, Load loss, SSR short circuit, SSR over-temperature, Voltage/ Current / Frequency out-of-range

PSS – PRODUCT SOLUTION SEARCH THE APP FOR THE MONITORING RELAYS SELECTION

How to immediately get the right item and the related technical specifications for the ideal monitoring relay according to your specific need.

Lainate, July 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new selection App for our range of monitoring relays.

Very often, users have a clear picture about what they need from a monitoring relay (e.g.: an overcurrent relay for 12 A) but they struggle to equate how their need is translated into the supplier’s item.

Some search tools are complex as they follow the rules in the mind of the suppliers, or they just provide a long list of items among which the user must search to find the appropriate product.

The PSS App aims at closing the gap between the need and the product by speaking the language of the user (8 languages available), having filters with the user’s categories (as measured current) and immediately providing the best solution for the inserted criteria, with the datasheet just one click away.

This App works on all platforms like PC, Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

“The PSS App is simple, smooth and intuitive, making it easier to find the best option,” Francesco Vedana, International Product Manager, says. “Starting from the selection of the main function, a list of parameters and additional numerical fields to be filled in to reach the ideal relay according to the user’s requirements.”

Specifically developed to simplify and enhance the user experience, the PSS App makes the purchase smoother and more immediate.

Main technical features
• Available for our range of monitoring relays
• It works on PC, Android and iOS devices
• 8 languages available (English, German, French, Chinese, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Italian)
• Immediately returns item number, description, picture and datasheet of the best fit for the user’s search
