Finding a competitive edge and adding value to a product is not always easy, especially in today’s tough market conditions but the new custom thyristor power controller from CD Automation may be able to do just that. These robust and rugged thyristors are primarily intended for OEM industrial electrical heating applications and can be customised for customer specific requirements. The fully enclosed thyristor unit offers the OEM the ability to customise its appearance with colour and logo design possibilities to match existing branding. Support documentation such as operating & installation manuals can also be supplied in neutral versions. The range comprises one, two and three phase models with currents up to 800 amps at 690Vac. Equipped with microprocessor control, these thyristors can be run as a solid state contactor, acting as an on/off switch with zero volt turn on and zero current turn off. Alternatively they may be operated as a zero cross burst firing controller with output proportional to either a 4-20mA, 0-20mA or 0-10V DC control signal. Internal semiconductor protection fuses are supplied as standard. A heater break alarm with internal current sensing is available as an option for the detection of partial or total load failure. The custom thyristor range can also be utilised with the REVO-PC power management system. This innovative power management system synchronises multiple loads so that the supply “sees” a near constant load with near unity power factor and without peaks whilst minimising harmonics and flicker. The REVO-PC power management system also incorporates smart power limit which uses predictive algorithms to maintain total power consumption below a preset maximum, a useful feature for electricity consumers who are on a maximum demand tariff and wish to minimise their energy costs.
