Thermal Management in Variable Frequency Drives (VFD)

November 26, 2018

Topic: SCADA VFD YASKAWA VFD mechanical and electrical repairs

VFDs provide many benefits in their primary functions of providing power and control for industrial motors of all sizes. For centrifugal fans and pumps operating at variable loads VFDs offer:

  • Significant energy savings. VFDs characteristically exhibit energy losses of just 2-4%
  • Smooth start and stop characteristics
  • Flexible precise control



All About Vertical Turbine Pumps

Topic: industrial motor SCADA YASKAWA VFD controller systems mechanical and electrical repairs automated systems

A vertical turbine pump is an extremely versatile type of centrifugal pump that has a wide range of applications. They can be configured to provide both high flow and high pressure as needed and offer advantages over other pump types for transferring liquid. Let's take a look at the vertical turbine pump, how it works, and where they can be found in use.

In simplest terms, harmonics can be defined as distortions to a voltage or current waveform. These distortions occur when non-linear, or non-sinusoidal, loads draw from a sinusoidal voltage source. In other words, harmonics can be generated whenever the smooth symmetrical sine wave of your AC power source is converted to squarish pulses by any of the plant components below, to name just a few of the most common harmonic sources.

Topic: automation automation in manufacturing technology in manufacturing automation technologies control systems factory automation new technology industrial technology SCADA DCS automated systems

While SCADA Industrial Control Systems (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) and DCS (Distributed Control Systems) originally began as separate systems they have partially merged together as bandwidth has broadened, thus making localized decisions at every node unnecessary. SCADA, then, includes both “control” and “data acquisition,” while DCS includes only “control.”


Industrial Control System (ICS) - What is SCADA and How Does it Work

January 8, 2018

Topic: industrial control system internet of things SCADA

SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition; it is a type of industrial control system that can be used remotely. It operates using coded signals over communication channels and can be combined with data acquisition systems to acquire information regarding the status of remote equipment. This information can then be easily displayed, or recorded if needed.


Investing in Internet of Things (IoT)? Which is Better: ABB vs. Eaton?

Topic: ABB vs. Eaton internet of things ABB SCADA

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is a growing field of interconnected machines and devices designed to automate processes. As this field grows, investment potential increases as well. Today, the two major competitors in industrial automation are ABB Ltd., and the Eaton Corporation. Before making an investment, it is helpful to look at how the two stack up.


How Do You Connect Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) with SCADA?

December 20, 2016

Topic: SCADA Programmable Logic Controller

The modern link between oversight SCADA Industrial Control Systems and front line PLC controllers is the result of evolution taking place since the days of basic relay-based systems and simple wired communications protocols. As techniques for sending and receiving messages developed over time, SCADA and PLC manufacturers created and expanded their own programming and communications languages. While manufacturers of current SCADA and PLC systems are recognizing the need for interoperability, most existing installations contain generations of devices which may "speak" different languages, both in software and via wired and wireless interconnects.
