Description:
The load monitor determines the phase angle cos ϕ, which is
the phase shift between current and voltage of asynchronous
motors. The load monitor is directly connected to the motor
and no additional sensors are required.
FEATURES
•
Fan monitoring (V-belt break)
•
Filter monitoring (filter blockage)
•
Protection for single and 3-phase
lightly loaded motors.
Because the phase angle depends on motor loading, it represents a directly measurable variable for the motor loading.
•
Current transformer may be connected for IN > 10 A
•
Suitable for frequency converter
•
Voltage range: 1-phase 24-230 V, 3-phase 24 - 400 V
•
Current range 0,5 - 10 A
The set point cos ϕ reacts either to an excessive or insufficient
freely selectable phase angle. After a set period of time, the
relay R switches to failure position and the LED is switched on.
Application:
Load monitoring of pumps and fans and other lightly loaded
motors.
Controling the input flow rate at which new material is fed into,
for instance, a grinding gear based on the current load status.
Under load monitoring can recognize power transmission
faults (for example, when a V-belt breaks) or flow interruptions
to centrifugal pumps and radial fans.
