Advanced Identification and Monitoring Solutions

December 5, 2013

Rockwell Automation, Milwaukee, Wis., expanded its Allen Bradley power quality portfolio to now include the i-Sense monitoring solution, i-Grid service and DySC dynamic sag corrector. These scalable solutions help OEMs and end users identify and mitigate power issues to improve uptime and productivity. Rockwell Automation

The i-Sense voltage monitors read incoming power for the entire facility. The cost-effective, maintenance-free i-Sense technology provides vital data that pinpoints voltage-based power events, reveals any consequent relationship between voltage sags and downtime situations and helps users get operations running with minimal mean time to repair (MTTR).

The subscription-based i-Grid service logs, analyzes and corroborates i Sense data via an Ethernet or modem connection from in and around facilities to confirm if power quality issues were the result of a grid event. Service options include detailed technical analysis and executive summaries. The i-Grid service can also send instant notifications to facility managers that a power event has occurred, enabling them to more quickly diagnose downtime and resume operations.

The DySC dynamic sag corrector uses patented, double-conversion inverter technology to protect against brief voltage sags and momentary outages. Customers can scale the DySC corrector from 0.25 kVA to 2000 kVA, offering machine- to facility-wide protection. The corrector provides 100% sag protection in a relatively compact size and without batteries, compressors, pumps or flywheel bearings. Optimized for fast response at voltage peaks, the DySC corrector has a typical peak voltage detect time (pVdT) of one millisecond and can provide a facility continuous, uninterrupted power for up to five seconds.
