Description

Overview

REVO-PB gives you 3x independent single phase power controllers in one package with the ability to utilise optimisation software to reduce your ongoing electricity supply costs.

Designed specifically for multi-zone industrial applications, the REVO-PB Power Optimisation Controller will also extend the useful life of components such as power units and cabling. It achieves this by avoiding electronic component stress as a direct result of the balanced load and decreased waveform distortion that results in a power factor close to 1.

REVO PB decreasing waveform distortion

Benefits

  • Cost of energy used is drastically reduced automatically with the use of the Power Optimisation Algorithm
  • Results show a power factor near to 1 (the perfect situation), low waveform distortion & decreased harmonic component.
  • Eliminates unregulated power peaks keeping you within your energy supply contract.
  • Connect seamlessly with your management software 24/7 with the most popular Fieldbus systems.
  • Connect multiple units for balanced control of all three phases.
  • Easily configure and setup the unit with free simple and intuitive software.

  • Available in single (phase to phase or phase to neutral) configurations.
  • Firing modes include Half Cycle and Single Cycle.
  • Control through RS485 RTU communications (or fieldbus systems).
  • Available in 4 amp sizes 35A, 50A 75A & 90A and 2 voltage sizes, up to 480V and up to 600Vac.
  • Plug and play PC configuration software
  • Real character organic LED display intuitively provides setup and process data

REVO PB Power Network with 3 channels

A basic system consists of a single three-channel module, each having the same single-phase connection. Using at least three REVO PB modules for a total of 9 power channels you can balance all three phases. For example: 3x Phase R to Phase S Channels; 3x Phase S to Phase T channels and 3x Phase R to Phase T channels.

At every channel/zone point you can connect a single phase load with a maximum 35A / 50A / 75A / 90A with a connection Phase to Phase or Phase to Neutral.

Ready for Industry 4.0

We choose Modbus RTU as the standard communication protocol on our units due to the great ease of interfacing with other industrial equipment such as HMI operator panels, PLCs, industrial PCs and other units present on the system as in most cases are already equipped with this communication standard.

Using the TU-RS termination unit you can connect the REVO-PB with some of the most common field bus systems including PROFINET, PROFIBUS DPEtherNet IP & # x2122 and Modbus TCP.

Each unit is supplied as an easy to install plug and play device, helping you get up and running as quickly as possible.

Resources

Suitable for Load Types

  • Normal Resistance
  • Short Wave Infrared Lamps (SWIR)

Optimisation of Energy

Poor management and the addition of unsynchronised loads can lead to an increase in the generated harmonic component (THD). This effect increases losses, generates noise and can generate overheating of power cables.

Even by using Zero Cross firing and a non-continuous operation, the harmonic components can reach critical levels.

Thanks to its control strategy and the management & distribution of power throughout the multi-zone loads, REVO PB keeps the Power Factor value close to 1 (a near perfect value).

A high Power Factor, a low waveform distortion and a decrease in harmonic components, will lead to a reduction in the cost of energy used.

No problem, our qualified engineers are here ready to answer your call, fax or email. If you like to browse the information first, we have all product information on-line plus useful calculation & product selection tools to help you select the right product. And all accessible 24/7 without the need for passwords or any form filling.

If the item is not in stock then we will normally guarantee the goods delivered within 7 days if required. This may depend on the quantity and size (if thyristors) but for quantities of 20 or less, then this should never be a problem.

We’ve made this as easy and accessible as we can. As the Internet is open 24/7 we have loaded as much relevant product data onto our web site and in a clear concise manner, so you don’t waste unnecessary time. Data includes quick-look guides for wiring / dimensions / start-up, product features & comparisons, selection tools, product data sheets, full installation & operating manuals plus press releases & application notes.

We know from experience that next year the order of 2 may be 500. Our relationship with our clients, big or small, is never taken lightly. See our Company Mission Statement, it’s who we are.

We understand that speed is important in business and as long as you accept that the accuracy of the quote is proportional to the amount of data given, we’ll provide a quote any which way you like (typically over the tel, via fax or email, or in person).
