WEG Introduces SRW01 Motor Control Series
Electric motor management system ideal for motor control centers
ATLANTA, G.A. July 13, 2009-WEG Electric Corp. (www.weg.net), a leading global supplier of motors, drives, controls, transformers, and generators, introduces the new SRW01 Motor Control Smart Relay Series.
Ideal for motor control centers and applications requiring control of multiple motors, the SRW Motor Control Smart Relay Series is a solution for control, monitoring and motor protection from 0.25A up to 840A. With advanced technology, the low-voltage, electric motor management system contains a variety of network communication capabilities and exclusive WLP software for ladder programming. The SRW01 features multifunction relay, modular philosophy and plug-and-play technology allowing the device to automatically recognize what communication protocol is in use. Additional features include: USB connection, built-in motor protections, network communication (ModBus, DeviceNet and ProfiBus), and PLC functions.
"A great solution for motor control centers, the modular concept of the SRW01 Smart Relay allows it to be used in various applications and provides greater expansion of the relay functions," states Rafael Larcher Neto, WEG Controls Product Manager. "Additionally, the smart relay includes a USB port, marking it simple to configure through the use of a PC and the WLP software."
Through an HMI (Human-machine Interface), the SRW01 allows for easy operation, monitoring and programming of the relay. The SRW01 can be operated as an overload relay or as a direct-on-line, reversing or star-delta starter. Additionally, the device can protect against overloads, phase loss, current imbalance, locked rotors, earth faults and out-of-range frequencies.
