February 2012 | PULS QTD20 Utilises Kinetic Energy to Protect PLC Control Systems

PULS is urging companies to make use of kinetic energy produced by AC electric motors to safeguard PLC control circuits in the event of a mains failure using its unique QTD20 power supplies. Modern production machines use AC motors controlled by frequency converters or servo amplifiers and have an intermediate DC-bus to which all individual drives are connected. By connecting the PULS QTD20 directly to the DC-Bus the need for a separate low voltage supply for control equipment can be avoided. If a mains failure occurs, the QTD20 utilises the power from the DC-bus capacitors, which are charged from the kinetic energy of the motor, to support the PLC until the motor has come to a complete stop. This ensures the control equipment and other important peripheral equipment is kept operational long enough for a controlled shutdown to take place. Until recently this energy was not usable owing to the high EMC levels present, however improved filtering technology developed by PULS has now made this possible. “When power failure occurs it’s the time taken to reset the system that causes the main disruption to production. Even a half-second outage means that you need to find out where you were when the interruption happened so you can restart the PLC from the relevant point. Of course, most people will use some kind of UPS back-up system, but with the QTD20 we can use the energy from the slowing motor to generate enough current to shut everything down properly.” The QTD20 features 600VDC input voltage optimised for intermediate DC-buses of drive systems, efficiency up to 95% with 125% peak load capability, active input transient filter, full output power in extreme temperatures of between -25°C and +60°C, minimal inrush current, reverse input polarity protection and DC-OK relay contact.


September 2011 | PULS UK improves reliablity of wind turbines.

Using super-capacitors rather than batteries to control turbine pitch is a major step forward for the wind power industry and the PSA395 will play an important role in improving efficiency and reliability. PULS UK has announced the introduction of its PAS395 power supply developed to charge the latest super-capacitors used to power wind turbine pitch control systems. Super-capacitors (electrical double-layer capacitors) are rapidly replacing the lead acid batteries previously used to drive the powerful motors controlling the giant turbine blades. PULS’s PAS395 delivers a high-charging current - a two-Farad capacitor will be fully charged in five minutes – and the unit’s high efficiency means that very little heat is generated. Once charging is complete the charger automatically switches to Energy Saving Mode to reduce power losses. The PAS395 can operate in ambient temperatures of between -40°C to +65°C and at an altitude of up to 6,000 metres, making it suitable for all climatic conditions and locations. Remote monitoring and control are standard features. The PAS395 weighs in at only 2.3kg and measures 310 x 154 x 80mm. It can be mounted in any orientation to allow easy installation even in confined areas. Pitch control systems are housed within the spinner of the turbine and revolve at around 30 cycles per minute, so using conventional lead acid batteries presents a risk of acid spillage and poor reliability. Switching to super- capacitors improves efficiency, extends service life and consequentially reduces maintenance costs.
