    What is a PH Meter?

    A pH meter is an digital instrument used to test and monitor the pH value of a solution. It works by the principle of primary battery, of which the electromotive force between two electrodes is based on the Nernst Law. Electromotive force of primary battery is affected by both property of electrodes and hydrogen ion concentration in the solution. There is a correspondence relationship between the electromotive force and hydrogen ion concentration of the primary battery, namely negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration is equal to the pH value.

    Safety Relay Working Principle

    Safety relay can be classified into electromagnetic safety relay, thermal reed relay and solid-state relay. The working principle of safety relays can also be roughly divided into three types. Safety relay is composed of several relays and circuits, so as to supplement each other's abnormal defects and achieve the complete function of relay with correct and low faulty operation, so as to make the error and failure value become lower, thus reaching higher safety factor. Therefore, multiple safety relays should be designed to protect different grades of machinery. It is used to mainly protect the mechanical operators who perform operation under different levels of risk.

    Induction Motor Price List

    Compared with other motors, the ATO induction motor has the advantages such as simple structure, convenience in manufacture, use and maintenance, high operational reliability, light weight, low cost. Taken the ATO three-phase induction motor as an example, compared with the DC motor with the same power and speed, the former weight is only half of the latter at one-third cost. It also has the load characteristics of constant speed that can satisfy machinery driving requirement of a majority of industrial and agricultural production. Its limitation is that due to the poor speed controlling performance caused by the fixed slip between its rotate speed and the synchronous speed of its rotating magnetic field, so it is not so economic or convenient as direct current motor under the usage occasion that requires a wider range of smooth speed control such as rolling mill, winding engine, large size machine tool etc. In addition, induction motors draw reactive power from the power system during the operation, resulting in the deterioration of power factor of power system. Therefore, on the occasion of high power and low speed such as driving ball grinding mill and compressor, using synchronous motors is more reasonable.

    PLC Pulse Control Stepper Motor

    As a common electrical actuator, stepper motor is widely applied in automatic control field. Stepper motor needs to be equipped with a special drive power the output of which is controlled by external pulse signal and direction signal. Each pulse signal can make stepper motor rotate a fixed angle, which is called step angle. Total angle and speed of rotation respectively depend on the number and frequency of pulse. The direction of rotation depends on direction signal. For a equipment with a known transmission ratio, the movement distance and speed of its parts can be controlled by controlling the number and frequency of pulse without the requirements for the feedback of distance and speed signals; and direction signal can control moving direction. Therefore, open loop control is a simple and economic electronic control technical scheme.

    Troubleshooting with the Oscilloscope

    There is no signal waveform on the screen when collecting signals?
    1. Check whether the detector is normally connected to the signal wire.
    2. Check whether the signal wire is normally connected to the BNC (namely channel connector).
    3. Check whether the detector is normally connected with the object under measurement.
    4. Check whether the object under measurement produces a signal (Signal channel can be connected with the fault channel to find out the fault).
    5. Collect the signal again.
    6. Check the state of the trigger mode.

    Interlaced vs. Progressive Scanning of Industrial Camera

    Industrial camera can be divided into interlaced scanning industrial cameras and progressive scanning industrial camera according to scanning mode.
    Most displays and industrial cameras adopt the interlaced scanning, but it actually looks like a smooth image in human eyes. Industrial cameras usually get odd rows of images first, for CCIR standard, industrial cameras get the even rows after 1/50 seconds, but for EIA standard, the industrial cameras get the even rows after 1/60 seconds.

    How to Select a Right AC Contactor?

    AC contactor is generally classified into class I, class II, class III and class IV according to the type of load, and they are respectively recorded as AC-1, AC-2, AC-3 and AC-4. AC-1 AC contactor corresponds to non inductive or micro inductive load as its control object, such as the filament lamp, resistor furnace. AC-2 AC contactor is used for starting and stopping of wound asynchronous motor. Typical application of AC-3 AC contactor is the operation of squirrel-cage asynchronous motor and the break in operation. AC-4 AC contactor is used for starting, reverse braking, reversing and jog of cage asynchronous motor. All ATO AC contactors with 24V/110V/220V coil operating at AC-3 380V or 660V.

    Control Methods of BLDC Motor

    Brushless DC motor (BLDC) replaces the mechanical commutator with electronic commutator, just because of the electronic commutator, the BLDC motor needs a controller to drive the circuit. ATO BLDC motor not only has a speed regulation performance as the DC motor, but also has the advantages of simple structure, no commutation spark, reliable operation and easy maintenance as the AC motor, so it’s widely used in industrial equipment, instrumentation, household appliances, robots, medical equipment and other fields. The commutation circuit of BLDC motor consists of two indispensable parts: drive and control. Particularly, the two parts are integrated into a single ASIC for low power circuit.

    Why Choose a Soft Starter?

    As we all know, the direct starting current of motor is 4-7 times rated current, the motors with a low power (generally lower than 7.5kW) have few influences on power grid and are allowed to start directly, but the large motors with high power (rated current 100A) have the instantaneous current of hundred of amperes and are not allowed to start directly because such high current has a high impact on power grid and can influence the normal work of other loads on the same power grid.

    NEMA Design A B C D for Electric Motor

    Different motors of the same rated horsepower may have different starting currents, torque curves, speeds and other variables. NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) has A, B, C, D four different designs for electric motors.
    NEMA Design B: Is the most common design of electrical motors and ATO single phase AC induction motors are of NEMA design B. Its starting torque is similar to that of design A, but sometimes still lower, providing a relatively low starting current. However, in industrial application, it locks locked rotor and still allows starting load. The rotating-speed difference is lower than or equivalent to 5%. The electric efficiency and full-load power factor are relatively high. The typical applications include pump, fan and machine tool.

    What are the Types of Clutch?

    Electromagnetic clutch‍‍
    Any clutch can complete the function of mechanical transmission, electromagnetic clutch controls the engagement and separation of the clutch through the power failure of the coil. For the common dry monolithic electromagnetic clutch, when the coil is powered on, magnetic force is generated to pull the “armature” piece, so that the clutch is engaged; When the coil is powered off, the magnetic force disappears and the “armature” returns back, the clutch is separated. This is a power failure working mode, beside this, the electromagnetic clutch can also work in power break combination, which will not be introduced here.

    How to Solve Line Reactor Failure?

    What about screw extraction of ascending flange base of high voltage bushing of line reactor?
    The vibration frequency of body is not in line with that of grading ring. Owing to the damping of transformer oil, grading ring has a low vibration frequency. And owing to single point welding and aluminum sheet welding, it has a poor mechanical strength. In the long-term operation, the vibration brought by the inconsistent vibration frequency of earth tag of line reactor (aluminum, welding) and grading ring causes metal fatigue and cracks. Solution: fix ascending flange base and body to reduce free-running vibration.
    Loop current heating caused by flux leakage, design defects of high voltage outgoing line and surface oxidation of bolt heat the local eddy in single bolt weakening its mechanical strength. Solution: replace the fixed screw of ascending flange base with stainless steel screw to reduce the influences of flux leakage.

    Difference between AC reactor and DC reactor

    The common line reactors in electrical power system include series reactors and paralleling reactors. Series reactors are mainly used to limit short-circuit current or ultraharmonics in filter by connecting with capacitor in series or in parallel. The line reactors in power grid of 220kV, 110kV, 35kV and 10kV are used to absorb the idle work of charging capacity of cable line. Operating voltage can be adjusted by adjusting the number of line reactors in parallel. Ultra-high voltage paralleling reactor can improve the operation conditions relating to reactive power of electrical power system including:
