Lenze Americas' OKS coatings can be applied to the motor and/or
components depending upon the degree of protection required in the end-user
application. OKS-G (primed) and OKS-S (standard paint) coatings provide
protection in indoor installations in heated rooms with air humidity up to 90
percent. The OKS-M application-optimized paint is for use in indoor
installations in unheated rooms or in a protected outdoor installation with air
humidity up to 95 percent. The OKS-L paint will withstand outdoor installation
and air humidity exceeding 95 percent.
Tested in accordance with DIN 50017 (Condensation Water) and
DIN 50021 (Salt-Spray), the OKS surface coatings exhibited 240 - 400 hour
durability in condensation tests and 150 - 200 hour durability in salt-spray
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
