Power measurement products monitor loads, detect pump failures

Wago unveils new power measurement modules. The new line features components made for industrial and building applications.

01/17/2014


Wago introduced a new power measurement family including the 750 Series, 3-Phase Power Measurement Modules, the 855 Series, and the 857/798 Series.

Wago's new power measurement modules can be integrated into a Wago-I/O-System node with other standard digital and analog input and output signals. This system can be networked to an existing control platform. If an integrated solution is not required, Wago signal conditioners can convert standard 1 A or 5 A current transformer or Rogowski coil signals into a standard PLC analog signal type.

Applicable across multiple sectors

Of the 26.7% of U.S. electrical consumption that comes from the industrial sector, 64% is attributed to motor-driven equipment. Power-measurement products can be used to measure and collect motor current data to detect instant or cumulative loading to protect an installation from potential failure or extraordinary energy usage.

Applications of the new power-measurement product line include:

  • General load monitoring and phase balance.

  • Detecting over-tonnage conditions in automotive stamping operations.

  • Detecting pump failures or cavitating pumps in lube or hydraulic pump systems.

  • Overload of conveyor motors or broken belts in material handing applications.

  • Preventing damage to gear boxes and drive shafts on index tables.
