Press Release Summary:
NHPU Series ProgramaCube(TM) is pre-manufactured without function assigned. Functions, time ranges, and count ranges can be created without designing new module. Unit switches motors, lamps, and heaters directly, without addition of contactor. Switch-adjustable time delays of 0.1 sec to 1023 hrs in 6 ranges or 3 counting functions/ranges is available. NHPU can be ordered with 6, 10, or 20 A solid-state output. Microcontroller timing circuit provides repeat accuracy of 0.1%.
Original Press Release:
High Power ProgramaCube(TM) Module
ABB is pleased to announce a new addition to the SSAC brand of timers and controls, the NHPU Series high power solid state ProgramaCube timer/counter module.
To significantly reduce delivery time, ProgramaCube(TM) modules are pre-manufactured without a function assigned. After an order is received, the software function is added and the unit is shipped fast. This means even hard to find functions, features, and options are available at standard lead times.
One of the main advantages of the ProgramaCube(TM) format is, new functions, time ranges, and count ranges can be created without designing a new module. New software is inserted into our CE, UL Recognized, and CSA Certified solid state modules. This eliminates three of the most time consuming steps in the design process. Modules are readily available so the lead time for a custom function is a fraction of that required for the traditional approach.
The addition of the NHPU Series to the ProgramaCube(TM) family of products, makes high current load control possible. The NHPU can switch motors, lamps and heaters directly without the addition of a contactor. The NHPU is available in any 1 of 12 single timer or counter functions. The NHPU features switch adjustable time delays of 0.1 second to 1023 hours in 6 ranges or three counting functions/ranges. The NHPU can be ordered with a 6, 10, or 20A high current solid state output, 100 million operations is typical. Switch adjustment allows accurate selection of the time delay or number of counts, the first time and every time. Its microcontroller timing circuit provides a repeat accuracy 0.1%. Encapsulation protects against shock, vibration, and humidity.
The NHPU measures only 2 inches square by 1.2 inches deep, and has a molded-in heat transfer plate to improve thermal transfer characteristics. This device surface mounts with one #10 screw to speed installation. Electrical connections are made via 0.25 inch (6.35 mm) male quick connect terminals.
Additionally, these devices are backed by the SSAC brand 10 year product warranty. They are available through ABB distributors world wide.
The NHPU Series is a cost effective approach for OEM applications that require small size, solid state reliability, accurate switch adjustment, and are in stock.
