Here’s what some of the experts at Eaton have to say about embracing energy efficiency today in order to seize a world of opportunity tomorrow.
To be able to quickly switch between the required process speeds, we need variable frequency drives with maximum flexibility. The Eaton PowerXL DG1 is the perfect match for these requirements.
To minimise the risk of production downtime and to guarantee short response times in the event of a fault, paint manufacturer Dinova replaced the variable frequency drives in its mixers with Eaton products. The compact PowerXL DG1 drive with integrated motor protection relay eliminates errors, protects the mixer against mechanical resonance and reduces energy loss to a minimum by dynamically adjusting the voltage/frequency curve.
When the International Institute for Product Safety (I²PS) in Bonn, Germany decided to replace its old slip-ring motor with an asynchronous one, it also sought to improve the energy efficiency of the overall system. The company chose an electronic drive system consisting of a frequency inverter and a regenerative braking unit. The new system from Eaton combines improved energy efficiency with better usability.
In its search for a solution that would reduce the energy consumption of an air filter system, LS Automation opted for Eaton's motor starters and drives to simplify the integration of energy-efficient motors.
