Installing the Pumping Smart Card allows applicable sensors to be directly connected to the EMX4. This removes the need for extra components normally required to provide this level of specific information and control for your system.
There are multiple causes of water hammer and each pump system has unique characteristics. For these reasons, ensuring a pump system is free of water hammer can be a complicated task.
Pumping engineers around the world are relying on AuCom’s unique XLR-8 technology to help tune pump starting and stopping for optimal results. XLR-8 provides a choice of ramp profiles to deal with the different causes of water hammer. So whether you are trying to prevent rapid changes in flow rate, flow direction, or water column separation and closure, XLR-8 puts the right start and stop profile at your fingertips.
An energy audit of a quarry identified a VSD controlled 132 kW conveyor that always operated at full speed. An EMX4 Soft Starter offered this fixed speed application savings of > €1,750 p.a. as well as a reduction in site harmonics.
Correctly identifying this conveyor as a fixed speed application at installation would have substantially reduced the capital costs. Using an EMX4 with a fixed speed application delivers superior acceleration and deceleration performance, advanced motor protection and communications functions.
EMX4 starters fitted with Pumping Smart Cards are providing farmers with improved control of their spray irrigation.
