Gopher Electronics Carries Honeywell’s WDRR Series Limitless™ Din-Rail Receiver

Gopher Electronics Carries Honeywell’s WDRR Series Limitless™ Din-Rail ReceiverDesigned to receive a wireless signal from a Limitless digital input the WDRR Series receiver is din-rail or panel-mountable. After receiving the signal the WDRR communicates the input status to a programmable logic controller or to any controller capable of NPN/PNP-type inputs. This wireless solution can save 60% when compared to traditional wired solutions, as the wireless eliminates the need for parts and reduces installation costs. With 14 Limitless digital inputs, the WDRR Series is for applications that require multiple wireless inputs. By combining inputs into one receiver rather than a one-to-one design can result in up to a 40% savings. The WDRR provides a separate visual and selectable NPN or PNO output for indication of an actuator position change on a Limitless™ input. It possesses the ability to reconfigure or network multiple switches, or point-to-point with personalized addresses, to allow for easily adding, subtracting, or relocating Limitless™ switches.

ebm-papst’s energy-saving motor represents environmentally friendly efficiency

ebm-papst’s energy-saving fan with aerodynamically optimized plastic rotor.

Due to the aerodynamically optimized plastic rotor, energy-saving motors (ESM) run more quietly and also make do without any environmentally damaging varnish. Energy-saving motors ESM achieve a motor efficiency of more than 65%, a figure more than three times higher than conventional shaded-pole motors. The input power was often able to be reduced to less than a fifth of previous valuebm-papst’s energy-saving motor represents environmentally friendly efficiencyes in real-world applications, since shaded-pole motors usually are not operated at their maximum efficiency. This is how this investment pays for itself within a very short period. High efficiency also results due to lower intrinsic heating during operation, which dissipates less heat into the environment. Energy-saving motors  offer outputs between 5 and 35W, operate with 230V or 115V supply voltage and provide additional options such as an automatic decrease to a second working speed at night.

Energy efficient iQ-motor for 1:1 replacement.

The compact design of energy-saving fans permits space-saving and, above all, simple installation. To reduce installation effort even further, these energy-saving fans can be purchased on request as ready-to-install modules. Existing applications can also be upgraded without problems. For this case, ebm-papst offers energy-efficieEnergy efficient iQ-motor for 1:1 replacement.nt iQ motors, which are compatible with existing shaded-pole motors and which have a high efficiency of up to 65% and the same installation dimensions, allowing a straightforward 1:1 mechanical exchange. Axial impellers with a diameter of 154 to 254mm can be fitted in the same way on the iQ motor to create an energy-efficient solution. The intelligent electronics regulate voltage fluctuations so that the speed remains constant. Many renowned supermarket chains are already making use of this environmentally and economically beneficial option for 1:1 replacement.
