The GA800 Configured package provides a GA800 in a UL Type 1 or UL Type 12 or UL Type 3R enclosure, with space for several commonly used options, such as reactors, circuit breakers, etc. The GA800 Configured Package has been designed for flexibility in providing the features and options commonly requested.

This Configured package is designed for tough industrial environments. It is rugged and reliable. A variety of enclosure options provide the right environmental protection.

Feature Highlights

  • -   High resolution multi-language display with Setup Wizards and Data-Logging.
  • -   Bluetooth (optional) and DriveWizardMobile for convenient and easy interaction.
  • -   Programming without main power through embedded USB port.
  • -   DriveWizard Desktop for comprehensive configuration and monitoring.
  • -   DriveWorks EZ (embedded function blocks) provides extra flexibility, otherwise accomplished in a separate controller.
  • -   Closed or open loop vector control for outstanding regulation and torque production.
  • -   Fast acting motor control functions provide near tripless operation.
  • -   Popular network connections provide robust control and monitoring with system controllers.
  • -   Embedded Auxiliary Control Power Input (24V) maximizes production time and efficiency by maintaining network communication while main power is removed.
  • -   Embedded Safe Torque Off minimizes downtime for applications requiring occasional intervention (SIL CL3, PLe, Category 3).
  • -   Integrated DC Reactor (40HP and larger) improves power quality and compatibility.
  • -   Integrated Brake Transistor (up to 125HP ND) option for cost effective heavy braking.
  • -   Standard conformal coating helps resist contamination.
  • -   Made with RoHS compliant materials for envirnmental compliance.

What if customizing your factory automation could be as easy as downloading an app? That’s the reality Bosch Rexroth seeks to provide with the ctrlX AUTOMATION system. Dubbed the ‘smartphone of automation’, the ctrlX AUTOMATION system seeks to make automation more user friendly, and give more control to smaller manufacturing companies who may not be able to develop their own specialized applications while using standard control systems.

During this year’s German Technology Day, we headed over to the Bosch Rexroth booth to sit down with Dave Hinder, Product Manager, Electric Drives & Controls, to learn more about this system.

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.

Everyday terms come into use in the electrical industry, one of which is ‘motor winding’. But what exactly are motor windings, what goes into them and what are their differences? Here is a look at the various components that make up a motor winding and their importance to design, application and longevity of the motor.

Coil / Winding

When one thinks of a what a motor winding is, the intuitive answer is the copper alloy coils that make up the actual current carrying component of the motor. Let’s start there.
