DUPLINESAFE WHITE PAPER

How to limit downtime costs due to emergency stops in material conveyors.

This document is aimed at enabling system integrators, engineers and maintenance managers to make the best design choices, while designing and planning safety systems onto conveyors. Also installers could take advantage by reading this document, especially in the commissioning and maintenance phase of their installation’s lifecycle. Plant owners and purchasers could also find useful information on how to improve the total cost of ownership of their assets, so as to save money in the short/medium/long terms.

SOFT STARTERS WITH MOBILE GENERATORS WHITE PAPER

How to overcome generator sizing issues and reduce system costs with soft starters.

Use of mobile generators is increasing and becoming more popular due to the growing trend of off-grid living but also as backup power for residential homes, due to the frequent power brownouts caused by adverse weather phenomena. Starting inductive loads, such as pumps and compressors, via generators might cause frequent trips due to the high starting currents of such loads. This document outlines the issues existing today with proper sizing of generators for inductive loads and also gives practical examples of how soft starters can help overcome such issues whilst helping to reduce system costs.

DALI WHITE PAPER

Choosing the right fieldbus for lighting-control.

This document aims at enabling system integrators and engineers to take into considerations some important points to make the right design choices while planning a building lighting system, especially in the commissioning and maintenance phases of their installation’s lifecycle. Building owners and purchasers could also find useful information about how to improve the total cost of ownership of their assets, so to save money in the short/medium/long terms.

PUMP ALTERNATING WITH FAILING PUMP DETECTION WHITE PAPER

A straightforward solution to reduce down time in pumping stations.

Managing alternating pumps may be complex but can be made much simpler when the task is under the correct focus. We will introduce some alternating pumps application examples, together with some ways to ensure the correct working mode even in case of failure. As a bonus, the solution highlighted doesn’t require investments or programming skills being plug and play.

SOLID STATE RELAYS WHITE PAPER

The benefits of utilising a heat sink at a higher temperature.

Heatsink sizing is one of the most critical steps when using solid state relays (SSRs). The heatsink provides the necessary thermal dissipation for the power losses in the SSR power unit. This paper gives a detailed thermal analysis of the SSR and heatsink and proposes ways how OEMs can:
- Save space in the electrical cabinet
- Increase the load current in the SSR
- Save on overall system cost

NRG DIGITAL SOLID STATE RELAYS WHITE PAPER

Now enable the prediction of machine failures, maximizing plant efficiency.

This paper explains the NRG concept and how it fits into today’s changing market.
It highlights the importance of real-time monitoring and how data from the NRG can dramatically reduce unplanned machine downtime and concludes by comparing the NRG to an alternative monitoring solution.
