Highest efficiency through application-specific drive configuration: Optimizing drive solutions, tapping power reserves

Despite the introduction of energy efficiency classes IE2, IE3 etc. and the subsequent information that is now available, finding the most resource-efficient drive solution is not easy. A simple catalog based choice will often miss out on potential savings and therefore motors should be carefully selected according to the actual load profile of the application. To avoid inefficient drive specifications, NORD Drivesystems concentrates on power reserves which are derived from various sources. Firstly, the power a motor can generate in compliance with its temperature class is higher than the rated output as given in the catalog and on the motor type plate. Secondly, performance classes rise gradually; for a 3.7 kW output, for instance, it takes a 4 kW motor. Many customers will even select the next motor in size. This kind of “bigger is better” approach is anything but efficient.

E. DOLD & SÖHNE KG

Modular, configurable and safe

The new modular and configurable SAFEMASTER PRO safety system from DOLD monitors all safety circuits of your machines and equipment. The number of inputs and outputs of the main control unit can be expanded at any time using expansion modules. This allows the system to be adapted optimally to individual applications. SAFEMASTER PRO fulfils all safety requirements up to PL e / Cat 4 or SIL CL3 and is TÜV certified.

Keyence International

2-D laser profiler LJ-G5000

Equipped with a unique E3 CMOS gloss compensation feature, this sensor offers a 300 times larger dynamic range of measurement than the market. It offers performances which up to now were impossible for compliance audits on complex surfaces such as rubber and metal surfaces, and those that mix the two materials. The performances are also unique: the range may be of 200 mm, repeatability of 1μm and sampling frequency of 3.8 ms.
