If you are to operate your plants as efficiently as possible, then you constantly need information about the current status of devices and functions. In wind power installations, for example, this includes the effective current consumption of connected loads (such as motors for pitch adjustment, device heaters or brakes), as well as information concerning their utilisation and operating behaviour.
Using the real-value effective procedure, ACT20C current measuring transducers record a connected load’s real current consumption for both DC and AC currents – even when the waveform is distorted. Information about the connected loads’ operating behaviour is also determined during this process.
The data transmitted by the ACT20C current measuring transducers enables you to continuously
Wind power plants make up one typical area of application for our ACT20C station with current measuring transducers. Here, it is vital that motor or brake overloads or anomalies are identified at an early stage and that operators respond to poor performance in cooling fans or rotor blade de-icing systems in a timely fashion.
monitor connected units in terms of whether levels are exceeding or falling below defined load points, as well as allowing you to maintain an overview of the units’ use and service life. This makes it far easier to purposefully optimise plants and processes.
More transparency in your automation
Identify errors and analyse faults in detail. ACT20C current measuring transducers allow for precise current measurements and supply extensive status information over the Ethernet.
Preventative maintenance strategies using automation-independent information about operating conditions and process data for connected devices.
Multiple limit value monitoring
The main alarm and auxiliary alarm permit precise identification of all alarm situations.
Smart software configuration
The software configuration based on the FDT and FDT2 standards makes parameterisation, documentation and data backup easier.
High process reliability
A galvanic four-way isolation and an impulse withstand voltage of 6.4 kV pursuant to IEC 61010-2-201 guarantee optimum fusing.
