NEW Portable Power Cell for Machine & Process Analysis.
The NEW PPC-3 portable power cell, manufactured
by Load Controls Inc USA, offers accurate and
extremely fast (15mS) true power measurement
which is ideal for machine analysis or process
development, allowing process engineers the
flexibility to assess the performance of individual
machines and product processes.
The instrument has been designed to complement the innovative
range of Power Cell transducers, which are now firmly established
with process control customers who require the very best possible
motor load "process end point" monitoring signal under the most
difficult industrial conditions.
Using three clip on "Hall Effect" current sensors, the instrument
has a wide frequency response, is not affected by poor wave
shape or frequency and is suitable for use on the OUTPUT of
variable frequency or inverter drives. Many other power monitors
use current transformers (CTs) and can not provide accurate
measurements under such conditions.
The power monitor is mounted in a rugged easy to carry waterproof
case. A bright digital true power display calibrated in Horsepower
or Kilowatts is included, with peak emphasis allowing fast moving
events to be monitored. Selection switches provide flexible ranges
and both 0-10V and 4-20mA isolated analogue outputs allow
measurements to be transferred to remote instrumentation, chart
recorders, data loggers and computers.
Many industrial process machines such as grinders, mills, mixers,
rollers, pumps, compressors, extruders etc may be improved by
sensing power instead of just current. Applications include
monitoring optimum feed rates, tool condition, mixture viscosity,
pump or fan flow, obstructions or overloads.
The Portable Power Monitor and Power Cell transducers are
particularly suited to mixer "process end point detection" where
by measuring the true power drawn by stirrer or paddle drives,
it is sensitive enough to detect minute viscosity changes.
