Brake Press
Sartec (Birmingham), the largest press working company in the UK have fitted Powerboss units and achieved a staggering 35% reduction in electricity consumption. Powerboss reduced the motors electricity consumption by 14% during press operations, the additional 21% was achieved by Powerboss detecting periods of no load and switching off the motor. 

Clay Preparation Plant.

The pictures shows two 132kW Motor Optimisers installed in a major brickworks in the North of England. The units are fitted to hammer mills, Others are fitted to Mixers and High Speed Rolls. The units are making savings from 6% to 18% in power consumed compared with star delta starter operation.
Thanks to the inbuilt Soft Starter, noise levels of the belt driven plant have reduced dramatically with belt slipping virtually eradicated providing large savings in belt maintenance. The picture clearly shows how simple the switchboards become by using the Intelligent Motor Optimiser. There are simply HRC fuses, motor overload and the Intelligent Motor Optimiser for each drive making installation quick, easy and straightforward. The control is simply via a no volt contact with closed being start and open stop. This system allows up to 15 starts per hour,  
2 x 132kW Powerboss

Compressors. Aerospatiale, the French aircraft manufacturer, installed a 150kW Powerboss to a twin screw compressor fitted with a 132kW Siemens motor. Powerboss produces an annualised saving of 30,572kWh. This represents a simple payback of just over 1 year.

Rock Crusher A 400kW ‘Rockmill’ capable of crushing 65 tonnes of granite in around 5 minutes was suffering from excessive starting currents, even when started unloaded. A Powerboss PSO 400 provided an effective soft start solution with complete motor and system management. It was noticed that the motor spent over 40 minutes in each hour operating in either a low, or unloaded condition. During these periods Powerboss reduces the power consumed from 181kW to 153kW. The soft starter that paid for itself!

Fans - A drying oven, which operates for 24 hours per day and 5 days per week, incorporates 6 - 11kW fans, which have a measured duty point of 8.7kW . When fitted with the Powerboss dynamic motor controller and energy optimiser the power reduced 5.36kW The purchase cost of the Powerboss was recovered in 27 weeks. Once fitted to all six fans, the annual running cost of the oven will reduce by more than £5,000.

Contact free starting - Powerboss can also be used for contactor-less switching of frequently starting motors, such as are used on reciprocating compressors.

Other applications - These are just a small selection of applications. Others are as diverse as a Vacuum Pump at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, to sewage and potable water pumps. From compressors in a British Rail Engineering workshop to lathes and grinders in a factory making wood burning stoves. For many people massive increases in energy costs have become an unpleasant fact of life. Now you can do something about it !

A proven product - Powerboss has grown out of almost a decade of research and development in the field of intelligent motor control. There are now literally hundreds of satisfied customers across thousands of installations, saving industry millions of pounds in energy costs. Powerboss has full CE certification and is year 2000 compliant. A corporate product support video is now available which features Powerboss in environmental test laboratories and application case studies.
