Energy Management

With UL approval and capacity monitoring

With UL approval and capacity monitoring

The active energy management devices of the Pxt family from Michael Koch GmbH have new features: Approval according to the UL and CSA standards and monitoring of the storage capacity during operation.

The parameterizable function of the ongoing capacity monitoring of electrolytic and double-layer capacitors brings warning messages when a previously defined minimum capacity value is reached. This is done either via an LED display on the device, via a specified digital output, or a defined message via one of the device's communication channels, such as a fieldbus. This ensures over the period of use that the usable amount of energy of the Pxt devices is always sufficient for the specific application or that maintenance is carried out at an early stage in the sense of predictive maintenance.

More power, a more stable network, safer machine operation, a longer service life and then even lower energy consumption of the electrical drive technology are the core properties that the active energy management devices of the Pxt family ensure. In addition to its wide range of technical properties, the product family also has approval in accordance with the North American UL and CSA standards. In conjunction with the drive system and the machine, these act as a significant simplification for international use, even beyond North America.
