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

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

UWP-A: LONG RANGE WIRELESS SOLUTIONS FOR ENERGY MONITORING

LoRaWAN® certified endpoint adapter for US915 MHz band.

Lainate, January 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today is proud to introduce an important update to our LoRaWAN® certified adapter UWP-A.

Minimizing installation costs and avoiding expensive cabling, which could have a huge impact on the project timeline, are very often the key targets in energy efficiency monitoring, cost allocation or asset management projects.

The best option in such cases is to rely on a solid and secure wireless fieldbus. The UWP-A adapter provides long range distance communication (up to 10 km) to Carlo Gavazzi’s energy meters and power analyzers, for an easy integration into existing standard LoRaWAN® gateways (private networks) and LoRaWAN® public networks (smart cities).

By working on the license free US915 MHz band, the UWP-A adapter allows North American installers to deploy the requested network of energy analyzers and easily join the available LoRaWAN® network either public or private.

The UWP-A is the key to convert any Carlo Gavazzi energy analyzer into an IIoT device, for joining a LoRaWAN® network and sending data to Energy Management Systems, Energy Billing Portals or Facility/Asset Management Solutions.

“If compared to traditional architectures based on gateways, modems and mobile networks, this solution minimizes the overall Total Cost of Ownership”, Alessio Costantini International Product Manager says. “The USA, Canada and Mexico versions are now available.”

Developed by our Competence center in Italy, this update allows a further expansion towards North American countries, in order to meet the requirements coming from the market, providing installers, system integrators, and ESCos with a great user experience.

Main technical features
• Compatible with most of Carlo Gavazzi’s meters and power analyzers
• Plug’n play set-up via UCS software
• USB connection to PC; power supply through USB
• Wireless communication through the North American US915 MHz license free band
• Compatible with standard LoRaWAN® gateways
• Up to 10 km wireless communication distance in open air
• Universal power supply
• High performance antenna included
