What is the MotorCon?
The MotorCon is a unique, adaptive control unit, designed and manufactured to improve the energy-efficiency of asynchronous motors at partial load conditions without reducing the revolutions of the motor.
What does the MotorCon do?
It optimizes energy efficiency during start-up as well as during continuous motor operation. The use of the MotorCon reduces
operating costs and
How does the MotorCon work?
Standardized asynchronous motors are often oversized in relation to the motor driven application and/or they drive a cyclical application. Consequently they run at least temporarily at partial load or idle condition. Only close to full load does a typical asynchronous motor reach its optimum energy-efficiency ratio of 80 % or higher. At partial load or idle condition it draws significantly more current than is necessary and causes avoidable costs.
The automatic load-recognition of the MotorCon detects the following motor-parameters at a sample rate of 100μs: current, voltage and Power Factor. Based on these motor-parameters the software-control calculates the actual load of the motor and the optimum voltage for that load. The MotorCon then feeds the motor only this optimum voltage using the long established phase angle control approach, to keep it always at or near its most energy efficient operating point.
Benefits of the MotorCon
The MotorCon offers features which clearly set it apart from currently available energy-saving solutions for asynchronous motors.
Where to use the MotorCon?
The MotorCon is an innovative end-user technology for industrial applications. Substantial reductions in energy-consumption, operating costs and CO2-emissions can be achieved with motors:
- with cyclic load that run temporarily at partial load or idle condition
- which are oversized in relation to the powered application
- Which have a low efficiency factor
- Constant Speed Water Supply Pumps
- Metal Processing factories
- Pulp and Papers facilities
- Pump Manufacturers
- Machinery Manufacturers
- Polymer processing factories
- Moving walkways and Elevators
- Lumber Mills
Currently two versions of the MotorCon are available in IP 65 enclosure:
22 – 45 kW (25HP- 60HP)
46 – 75 kW ( 61HP- 100Hp)
Versions up to 500 kW mech are available on request.
