The PowerXL DE1 variable speed starter is a product that bridges the gap between a standard electromechanical starter and a variable frequency drive. With industry-leading ease-of-use and a narrow, compact housing, the DE1 is designed to be used in flexible applications with value propositions unique to each application.

 

 

 

Integrated intelligent components and device-level networks provides superior performance to enhance any process or production method. Factory wiring, popular network protocols including industrial Ethernet, and extensive testing and documentation make your iMCC installation simple. Whether your application calls for hard-wired I/O or a network solution, Schneider Electric Model 6 iMCC's deliver the intelligent and integrated package while reducing acquisition, installation, and commissioning costs.

 

 

 

The Enclosed Drive Panel is an industrial general purpose AC motor control and protection package. It is designed for simple and quick installation and start-up, requiring only input power and output motor connections. The Enclosed Drive Panel is built to complement the ruggedness and reliability of WEG electric motors, providing a complete, simple, and cost effective AC motor control, monitor and protection solution.

 

 

 

WEG SSW-06 series soft-starters are micro-processor controlled and designed to start and stop induction motors. Excellent acceleration and deceleration control is achieved with an optimized cost to benefit ratio.

 

 

 

The DriveWizard Industrial support tool is a Windows-based PC program designed to make commissioning and troubleshooting of Yaskawa drives as simple as possible. DriveWizard Industrial provides user-friendly tools for viewing, manipulating, and exchanging data with the drive. Data can be retrieved, changed, stored, and graphed.

 

 

 

Toshiba’s T300MV2 4160 V medium voltage adjustable speed drive is the most advanced drive in the industry. No other drive in the market features the latest five-level Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) with Neutral-Point Clamping (NPC) technology. This advanced technology allows for a smaller footprint, a reduced component count, and ultimately, lower costs. In addition, it incorporates the latest safety technology, making it one of the safest designs on the market.

 

 

 

B&R's Smart Camera and Smart Sensor are now available with a C mount. This greatly expands the range of possible applications for the vision system. Along with the new cameras, B&R is introducing five C-mount lenses that cover a wide range of focal lengths from 12 to 50 mm. The lenses are specially optimized for the image sensors used to achieve maximum resolution and high detail contrast.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

The VLT Micro Drive FC 51 is small and yet powerful and built to last. Panel space can be saved and installation costs reduced thanks to its compact size and minimal commissioning requirements. Despite its compact size and easy commissioning, the VLT Micro Drive can be set up to perform perfectly even in complex applications.

 

 

 

At SPS 2019, Wieland Electric presented the prototype of a new motor starter that adds a new dimension to decentralized automation in terms of size, safety functions and handling. The podisMS 5HP not only presents itself as the smallest decentralized motor starter in its power range, but also as the first decentralized motor starter with IP65 protection and integrated STO (Safe Torque Off) safety function. The drive solution, which can be parameterized without software, is also characterized by simple handling during commissioning, operation and maintenance and features a sophisticated thermal design which, together with electronic low-wear switching, contributes to a long service life - even with frequent switching cycles.
