|The humble 22kW AC
Induction motor can consume £10,000 of electricity, ten times its initial
capital cost - in ONE YEAR !
When fitted to almost any AC
Induction motor Powerboss can produce energy savings of between 10 and 20%.
Usually, with a payback of less than 2 years. Powerboss is recognised by the
Energy Efficiency Council and is an audit-able asset for ISO 14001 1996.

||Almost 70% of all
industrial electricity is consumed by electric
Soft Start and Soft Stop. - When starting, an AC Induction motor develops more torque than
is required at full speed. This stress is transferred to the mechanical
transmission system resulting in excessive wear and premature failure of
chains, belts, gears, mechanical seals, etc. Additionally, rapid acceleration
also has a massive impact on electricity supply charges with high inrush
currents drawing +600% of the normal run current. The use of Star Delta only
provides a partial solution to the problem. Should the motor slow down during
the transition period the high peaks are repeated and can even exceed direct on
line current. Powerboss provides a reliable and economical solution to these
problems by delivering a controlled release of power to the motor, thereby
providing smooth, stepless acceleration and deceleration. Motor life will be
extended as damage to windings and bearings is reduced.
Soft Start & Soft Stop is built into 3 phase
Powerboss units, providing controlled starting and stopping with a selection of
ramp times and current limit settings to suit all applications.
- Less mechanical stress .
- Improved power factor.
- Lower maximum demand.
- Less mechanical maintenance.
Soft Start and Soft Stop is especially useful
with pumping fluids where torque transients often cause water hammer effects,
and in some instances, failure to gradually slow the fluid down before
stopping, can cause the kinetic energy to rupture pipes and couplings.
Intelligent Energy Savings When a motor is operating under less than full load a large
amount of energy is being wasted. Both NASA and the British Energy Efficiency
Office have stated "in typical applications, levels of utilisation are
approximately 50% with power losses estimated to be between 40% and 80% of the
motor full load rating". Although they play a vital role in modern life in
the production of almost all products, industry pays dearly for these
inefficiencies. POWERBOSS can recover these losses, reduce costs and thus
Powerboss utilises a powerful
micro-controller, which continuously monitors motor efficiency and
ensures the optimum amount of power is used to complete the job of work. Slight
changes in demand will be recognised and Powerboss will respond immediately by
matching the input power exactly as the load changes thus saving energy!
Powerboss is available from 1kW to 600kW
