Danfoss'VLT Automation VT Drives are available for 240 and 480V ac single
and three phase, or 575 and 690V ac three phase operation with Â½ up to 1400 hp,
along with a wide range of industrial enclosure options, to support varied
A Smart Logic Controller
eliminates ancillary equipment to reduce installed costs, and main disconnects
and integral fusing reduces panel space requirements. Dedicated pump functions
simplify programming and commissioning. An optional one-wire Safe Stop can
reduce installed costs for applications with safe operation requirements.
All VLT Automation VT Drives feature an integrated dc link to eliminate
the need for external filters. Intelligent Heat Management removes excessive
heat to promote maximum drive operating life and has an ambient temperature
rating of 50C.
VLT Automation VT Drives
provide autotuning of PI-controllers to eliminate the potential for tuning, and
password protection reduces the potential for unauthorized changes to the drive
settings. They are available in a variety of industrial enclosures, from
protected chassis to IP66 (NEMA 4X indoor), suitable for harsh washdown
environments - without the need for customized panels. These drives provide
multiple language support to display all information in a user-selected
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
