Omron, with ecological awareness and energy saving
July 20, 2010
Electric motors represent two-thirds of the electric energy consumption in the EU industry. Applications that are developed, in greater measure, pumps, fans and compressors, being also that allow to obtain higher energy savings using frequency converters to control the speed of the engine are: more than 50% of energy savings in some cases.
Converters of frequency as the best option
The increasingly restrictive legislation (increases in energy costs, penalties for excessive consumption, etc.), causes that we can not ignore these problems and the search for solutions. Because of this necessity, the best option is the installation of converters of frequency for motors.
Converters of frequency of Omron adapt the speed of the engine to ensure the proper functioning of the application and optimize energy costs. In addition, incorporate a function of automatic energy conservation that provides the optimal voltage to the motor based on the conditions of the minimum load/consumption to maintain the operation of the application, getting the equivalent yield with less consumption.
There are also investment programmes that will make it possible at this time that companies can satisfy the above approaches. The aid of these programmes, together with the savings on electricity bills obtained using frequency converters, allow to the amortization of the improvements occur in a short period of time (two years or even less), and also extending the useful life of the engines used.
-Reduction of consumption (active and reactive) energy efficiency.
-Better operational control, optimizing the profitability and productivity of the production processes.
-Minimize the losses in the facilities.
-Savings in maintenance (engine works with less stress and the optimal operating conditions)
-Reduction of acoustic noise of the engines.
-Guarantees the continuity of the installation.
-Get the same or higher quality objectives and response, increasing customer satisfaction.
Software for the estimation of energy saving
Saver Is a powerful tool of Omron that allows to estimate the energetic saving that can obtain in an installation when substituting a method of control of the conventional engine by a converter of frequency and in how long would produce the return of the investment.
The software is designed to be easy to use, intuitive and reliable in their estimates, as well as allowing select converter frequency most appropriate Omron for each application. It has a very appealing graphic interface which allows the user to quickly familiarize yourself with the application.
It allows the user the possibility to make a basic estimate, which require a minimum data of the application, either a more detailed estimate, which requires a more precise description of the system, allowing endless possibilities to define ranges of work, electric rates in different slots and even different stations during the year. All these features allows a very accurate estimate.
Saver Realizar the estimate of energetic saving in applications of pumps, fans and compressesors, comparing the results between the existent current installation according to his method of control and the installation with converter of frequency. For this, is necessary to define the cycle of work of the application, what more precise was this definition, greater accuracy will have the estimate.
Like result of the study, Saver generates useful reports and charts that show the power saved, the difference of costs in the electrical bill and the time of return of the investment. Besides, the results can store in different formats (.doc, .Pdf, etc.).
Saver Is available gratuitamente in the Area of Download of Software of the corporate web of Omron.
