Lainate, July 2012 – Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics Group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, announces the launch of the DMPU, a modular electronic motor protection relay.
In some critical applications, such as water treatment plants or power stations, it is recommended that the motor is protected against malfunctions which could cause expensive downtimes. The DMPU device allows constant monitoring of the motor, reducing costs and correctly planning maintenance operations as well as increasing the lifetime of the motors.
Thanks to its high level of flexibility and versatility, the DMPU basic module can be supplied with additional optional modules, which make it the ideal solution to offer high protection, data logging and full variable energy measurement functions. Furthermore, the simplified cable connection, through our split-core module, allows easy replacement and installation for enhancements and refurbishments.
“Features such as split-core, modularity, easy programming, input and output availability, in addition to high level information collection for the supervision of the system, guarantee better plant organization with a higher profit”. Francesco Vedana, International Product Manager, adds,“with the introduction of this device, we expect to set a new benchmark in terms of high-end functions, user-friendliness and network connection.”
Developed by our R&D competence center in Belluno (Italy), and thanks to our expertise in monitoring and metering, the DMPU ensures early warning as well as load and energy consumption control of motors mainly used in market segments like Oil & Gas, Mining, Energy and Water Treatment.
