Eaton shows technology for doing things better

Eaton shows technology for doing things better
Power management company Eaton, a Pump Centre member, will be showcasing innovative technologies for the water industry at the Pump Centre Conference and Exhibition in Telford on 30th April. 

Visitors to the Eaton stand (Stand 16 in Hall 3) will, in particular, have the opportunity to find out about the revolutionary Eaton SmartWire-DT connection and communication technology that eliminates the need for conventional control panel wiring as well as making it easy to collect valuable real time information from components such as variable speed drives and circuit breakers.

Also in the spotlight on the stand will be Eaton's latest PKE motor protection circuit breakers, which have extensive facilities for drive monitoring, and PowerXL variable speed drives, which are fully compatible with the SmartWire-DT system and which offer high efficiency combined with ease of use.

With SmartWire-DT, ready-terminated plug-in connecting links replace conventional control panel wiring. Not only does this greatly reduce wiring time and costs, it also saves space in the control panel, virtually eliminates the risk of wiring errors, and makes it very easy and inexpensive to modify and extend existing panels.

A further key benefit is that SmartWire-DT provides access to operational and diagnostic information, such as motor running currents and breaker trip status, without the need for additional wiring or connections. This makes it easy to implement systems that provide advance warning of trip and other fault conditions, and that log data as an aid to rapid faultfinding.

Ideally suited for use with SmartWire-DT, PKE motor protection circuit breakers support enhanced drive monitoring - motor current and trip status, for example, are accessible in real time via a SmartWire-DT connection, without using use any extra components. 

The protection characteristics of PKE breakers can be set to suit almost any type of motor and users can also optionally configure the breakers as motor protection relays. When this is done, the breaker de-energises the motor contactor when a trip condition occurs, but does not physically trip. This makes possible automatic restarting without the need for manual resetting.

PowerXL variable speed drives are ideally suited for pump applications. Combining high efficiency with easy set up, they are available with ratings up to 250 kW. PowerXL DA1 series drives support not only standard induction motors but also permanent magnet motors that are designed to meet the IE4 standard. In addition, they incorporate an energy optimiser that automatically reduces the motor voltage with light loads.

Throughout the Pump Centre Conference and Exhibition, experts from Eaton will be available to provide advice and guidance on modern automation solutions that combine outstanding performance and versatility with reliability and value for money.
