Rugged to the core - Beijer Electronics at SPS IPC Drives 2015

With a new stand concept and fresh look, Beijer Electronics presents itself as a full-service provider of automation solutions at SPS IPC Drives 2015. In the 26th year of the leading industry trade fair, the Swedish technology group will focus on an individual trade fair presentation following the slogan "Rugged to the core". While their subsidiary Westermo Data Communications has moved to hall 10, Beijer Electronics will welcome visitors at booth 490 in hall 7.

With their newly introduced 7 inch rugged panel iX T7BR, Beijer Electronics expands its HMI product range by another indestructible iX HMI panel that works reliably even under extreme environmental conditions and is fully certified for challenging surroundings. In addition to the classic HMI panels for industrial, rugged and marine applications, Beijer Electronics since 2014 offers a high-performance softcontrol series. These products link innovative HMI technology with the industry-standard CoDeSys and offer one compact device for machine control and visualization. The user interface can be adapted to the needs of different users and to the machine in few simple steps. The look of the user interface can go hand in hand with the corporate brand, thus creating a real competitive edge.

Another focus for 2015 is Beijers intelligent software solution that shines with intuitive usability, smart features and superior visualization. The group's portfolio is completed by drives, remote I / O modules as well as products for data communication. Just in time for SPS IPC Drives, the international corporate website will be presented in a new look. With its clearly structured navigation, it will offer real added value to every visitor - whether existing or prospective customer.

New HVAC Inverter H3 takes energy savings to a new level

The third generation of Beijer Electronics HVAC drives, the HVAC Inverter H3, takes energy savings one step further.


Proven energy savings

The new H3 series increases drive efficiency to more than 98% leading to energy savings and reduced life time costs. The proven energy saving helps consumers realize significant savings year upon year. At the same time, it also reduces harmonic current distortion, associated with electronic equipment and traditional variable speed drives, to below 30% iTHD (total harmonic distortion).

The HVAC inverter H3, available from 0.75 kW to 45 kW, provides drive efficiency combined with low input harmonic current distortion compliant with EN61000-3-12. The H3 series controls the latest generation of induction motors, as well as permanent magnet AC motors, brushless DC motors and synchronous reluctance motors. Otherwise, the H3 inverter series is identical with the existing H2 regarding functionality, enclosure types, etc.

 HVAC Inverter H3 features:

  • 0.75 kW – 45 kW power range; 3 phase input, IP55/IP66
  • Drive efficiency > 98%
  • Low input harmonic current distortion compliant with EN61000-3-12
  • Lower mains supply current - reduced cable size, reduced fuse size, reduced transformer size
  • Improved power factor - no additional charges from the electricity supply company due to low power factor
  • Improved efficiency - reduced lifetime costs. E.g. 37kW, operating 10 hours per day, 5 days per week, 50 weeks per year - power consumption is 92500kWh - 1.1% reduction is >100kWh saving
