Schneider Electric offers smart, green motor protection & management system
Industries operating in harsh environments, such as dust, marine, high vibration applications and corrosive atmospheres can benefit from the TeSys T smart, green motor management system from Schneider Electric South Africa.
Ideal for the chemical & pharmaceutical industry, water & wastewater, mining, oil & gas and the food & beverage sectors, it offers full motor monitoring, control and protection for electrical motors, when used with a short circuit protection device and a contactor. The TeSys T offers protection, metering and monitoring functions for single-phase and 3-phase, constant speed, ac motors up to 1000 A.
Ideal for use in factories, mines, airports and harbours, it reduces downtime, increases productivity and saves energy through its exclusive predictive capability, and full sets of intuitive and easy to use commissioning tools.
It has an environment friendly ‘plug & play’ control, with communication and diagnostics embedded in the products, and offers a user-friendly operation either directly on the product or remotely via a human machine interface (HMI).
• Main controller - providing communication features, current based protection and monitoring, statistics and control features
• Optional expansion module – this adds voltage, power and energy monitoring/management features
• HMI flexible option that quickly monitors and commissions a TeSys T system. Control features are also available through the HMI.
The system is quickly becoming a worldwide standard, thanks to its flexibility, prediction and energy management and is trusted for its long product life because of its state-of-the-art component selection, all-in-one design and advanced electronic protection.
The TeSys T is able to monitor current, voltage and power accurately over a wide range, and features advanced protection and warning functions. This accurate monitoring allows it to detect very small drifts in current, voltage or power, which is essential for an effective preventive maintenance.
With the system, untimely stoppages of a process or manufacturing plant, associated with an electrical motor, are anticipated via predictive analysis of fault situations. Fault tripping is therefore reduced to a minimum. Its use in the motor control center panels makes it possible to:
• increase operational availability of installations
• improve flexibility from project design through to implementation
• increase productivity by making available all information needed to run the system
It has interchangeable modular functions, to meet the requirements for extension software and accessories common to multiple product families. The motor management system integrates perfectly with Schneider Electric’s low voltage equipment, such as Okken, Blokset and Prisma.
