Intelligent cruise-control for industrial motors – Some 65% of all energy used in industry is consumed by motors. So how much could your business save, if those motors intelligently adapted to the loads put on them? For our global clients, the answer is up to 40%.
Up to 40% Energy Savings – Our clients regularly save 20-40% on energy costs, even across huge industrial operations. Your motor becomes its own smart load sensor.
Cruise-Control For Motors – Your car can intelligently adjust the power it draws from the engine to maintain an optimum speed – well now so can your machines!
Full Power in < 50th Second – Still draw full power instantly whenever it is required. No compromise on motor performance, even under heavy loads.
Take control of your fixed-speed motors – The loads on a fixed-speed motor can vary dramatically – so why doesn’t the energy usage?
How does it work?
In effect; Integra electronically ‘re-sizes’ the motor to both its application and load cycle every 10 milliseconds. Integra is perfect for fixed speed applications, because motor RPM is maintained at all times even as the load varies from nothing to max capacity. Integra can also be configured to turn off the motor when no load is detected.
Integra can extend motor life, reduce maintenance costs and save a fortune in the process. Payback is normally achieved within two years, sometimes just a few months. Automatic motor ‘resizing’ with no human input
Up to 40% savings on energy usage and cost
Reduced KVA KW & KVAR and increased PF
Increased contractor life & drive train components
Attach more equipment to a single supply
Improved power factor at all load cycles
Prevents dips in supply o
The Problem -Energy can be a significant component cost in the production of most products we purchase. Indeed, some 65% of all energy in industry is consumed by AC induction motors.
Approximately 10% of all these motors are operating in applications that require variable speed conditions. However, the vast majority needs to operate at a single or fixed-speed. As such, installing a variable speed drive onto a fixed speed application is often a bad idea. It can increase the running cost by a much as 6-8%.
The loading on a motor during the typical duty cycle can fluctuate dramatically, ranging from 0-100%. While there is a measure of reactance within the motor windings, the motor has no way of intelligently adjusting the amount of power it consumes in relation to the type of work it does. That’s where Integra comes in…
The Solution – Integra brings to bear a number of best-in-class technologies to address this problem. With advanced soft start technology, intelligent load monitoring and controlled stopping all in-built – a single product is able to enhance almost any heavy machine with valuable intelligence.
Times Load Current – Starting direct on-line can draw 6-9 times the full load current, Integra stops this
