Let us look after your power control for you and give you the peace of mind that you have the best for your process - even as it changes.

  • Flexibility - advanced technologies in harmony with modularity and ease of use to deliver your power control needs
  • Efficiency - world class power control with innovative features to minimise your energy costs with exceptional process performance
  • Peace of mind - a power controller that will bring you return on investment and can be adapted in the future if your requirements change - one product for all solutions

Revolutionary modularity and configurability to meet your needs ...

  • Easy ordering, configuration and maintenance through modular design
  • If your requirements change EPower controller can be easily adapted to meet your needs
  • Minimum spares holding - many options configurable through a common driver module e.g. firing mode, load, phases, control etc.
  • Up to four power control modules provide single and multi-phase control
  • Software configurable options to bring you flexibility

The options that you need ...

A single driver module can support up to four power modules - and hence four independent control loops.  Power modules are available in current ratings covering a range from 100A to 630A.  The driver module itself supports options boards to give you additional flexibility in your solution:

  • Communications - RS485 Modbus RTU, Profibus, DeviceNet®, Modbus TCP network protocols, CCLink*, EtherNet IP* and ProfiNet*
  • Predictive Load Management (PLM) - A powerful feature to effectively manage your power requirements across multiple machines to save on your energy costs. Read more about PLM.
  • Flexible I/O - The driver module supports standard I/O and up to three additional I/O boards with analogue inputs, analogue outputs, digital I/O and relay outputs
  • LTC - The Load Tap changer option for single phase unit applications only, allows for managing multi-tap transformers, preventing both increased harmonics and the reduction of power factor
  • Energy Counter - Available over communications and for display on user screens, customers can access up to 5 scalable counters, one per individual phases and a global energy usage counter
