Sontay Current SwitchesSontay - New range of current switches!

For 2013 we have introduced a new range of feature packed, cost effective current switches. They are a fool-proof way of detecting fan belt breakage and motor failure as well as verifying light circuits and process equipment status.The units are available with adjustable and fixed setpoint options to suit any application. Adjustable setpoint types allow for easy detection of broken drive belts, drive belt slip or pump coupling shear.  A typical HVAC motor that loses its load has a reduction in current draw of 50%. Fixed setpoint types provide a cost effective solution for monitoring the status of unit vents, exhaust fans, recirculation pumps and other fixed loads where belt loss is not a concern.

KNX GatewayFieldServer Technologies Introduces KNX Gateway

FieldServer Technologies, the major gateway manufacturer in the building automation industry, introduces the new KNX Gateway.  The QuickServer KNX Gateway enables data access from KNX networks to devices and networks utilizing open and proprietary protocols such as BACnet, Modbus, LonWorks, Metasys N2 by JCI, EtherNet/IP, DNP3, SNMP and more.  With over 100 protocols available in the extensive FieldServer Driver Library, no other product can connect KNX to more products! The QuickServer KNX Gateway is a galvanic-isolated translator device on KNX/TP installations with control and monitoring capabilities. All EIS data types are supported, allowing communication to any kind of KNX devices in the installation, such as temperature sensors, shutters, light switches, actuators, alarms etc.  It allows Building Automation and Industrial Automation systems to access a KNX network using direct read and write of KNX configured groups. This setup does not require the use of ETS4 to configure the QuickServer KNX gateway.

Current TransducerMonitor Distorted AC Current with New ATPR Series Current Transducers from NK Technologies

NK Technologies introduces ATPR “E-Out” Series AC Current Transducers. ATPR current transducers combine a current transformer with a true RMS signal conditioner in a single package. This enables the ATPR series to produce a 0-5 or 0-10VDC RMS output on distorted waveforms located in the output of variable frequency drives, phase angle fired heating controls, and on linear loads in “noisy” power environments.  The ATPR series is a perfect solution for monitoring the output of variable frequency driven loads, even when in bypass mode. They can also be used to measure phase angle fired heating controls and other SCR controlled loads. These current transducers respond quickly to element failure by monitoring current instead of temperature, and accurately measure power supply and ballast input power.
