THE 4TH GENERATION TRIPLESHIELD™ CAPACITIVE SENSOR CA18CAN/CAF SERIES

High reliability in Industrial applications thanks to significant upgrades such as strengthened electromagnetic immunity and refined sensitivity adjustment.

Lainate, February 2015 – Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics Group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new capacitive sensor series, CA18CAN/CAF.
The enhanced EMC performance allows these sensors to withstand higher electrostatic disturbances, while the ECOLAB certification, rated to IP69K, makes this series the ideal solution for reliable detection in harsh environments subject to high temperature, chemical agents, steam and high-pressure cleaning.
“Dust and temperature alarm outputs provide additional control features, preventing expensive downtime of the machinery,” says Torben Rochat – International Product Manager.
“We are confident that the innovative 4th Generation TRIPLESHIELD™  sensor family will consolidate Carlo Gavazzi’s  leading position in the capacitive sensors market – setting a new standard of reliability in Industrial applications, as happened with  the introduction of TRIPLESHIELD™ sensors in 1996.”
Designed by our Competence Centre in Denmark, this capacitive sensor series is mainly directed at Industrial markets such as Plastic and Rubber, Agriculture, Materials handling, Packaging, Food and Beverage, HVAC, Glass and Ceramics and Automotive.

RSWT: THE SELF-LEARNING SOFT STARTING SOLUTION FOR CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS

Monitoring, protection and self-learning features in a compact 75mm housing for centrifugal pumps up to 30kW/30HP (55A).

Lainate, February 2015 – Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics Group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new RSWT soft starter. Residential buildings in densely populated areas are getting taller and taller and, as a consequence are presenting new challenges to architects, including those of the water distribution system. Tall buildings mean long pipes and more potential problems of water hammering in pumps. Building managers have to ensure reliable and correct operation of the pumps. The RSWT is designed with a dedicated algorithm to ensure that the pump starts and stops smoothly. In the market there are different solutions for improving pump starting and stopping, but they tend to be quite complex. To solve this issue we have made the algorithm self-learning, so as to remove as many settings as possible. In fact, we are the first to come up with a soft-starter which requires just a 1-knob setting for complete soft-starting and soft-stopping. This solution makes the life of our customers easier by reducing set-up time. “The RSWT is a very compact and easy-to-use soft starter with integrated monitoring functions, such as overload, so as to ensure that the pump is also protected in abnormal conditions and, at the same time, to reduce the number of components in the panel and the wiring time. Its compact dimensions, just 75mm wide, also make it an ideal replacement for star/delta starters,” says Jason Demicoli – International Product Manager. “With this launch we are confident of strengthening Carlo Gavazzi’s soft starter product portfolio by offering a better solution directed at specific applications – in Agriculture, Water treatment and HVAC markets - such as centrifugal pumps, where the end-users can benefit from less maintenance and longer pump lifetime.”
 

Main technical features
• Self-learning algorithm for smoother pump starting and stopping
• Auto-determination of initial torque setting
• Integrated overload protection (Class 10) on RSWT..V011/V111 models
• User friendly interface and fewer settings required
• Auto-adaptive algorithm for optimal inrush current reduction and current balancing
• Three-phase controlled and internally bypassed
• 20 starts per hour at rated conditions
• Compact dimensions (75mm wide)
• Remote alarm reset
• PTC input
