    The Analysis of Line Reactor Noise

    One of the other manufacturing reasons for the high noise of the reactor lies in the insufficient clamp force of the iron core. The low iron core fastening force will increase the operation noise of the reactor. As the experience indicates, when the pressure intensity of the iron core clamp force is 0.8~1.2MPa, the noise of the reactor is the lowest. In addition to this, the compression screw and clamp nut of the iron core sheet should be equipped with an additional lock net, preventing from the looseness of the nut caused by the vibration of the iron core sheet in operation, so as to result in the high noise degree.

    Difference Between Reactor and Inductor

    Reactor is used to maintain the current and stabilize the voltage of the electrical system. The reactor adopted in the power grid is substantially a hollow coil without the permeability magnetic material. It can be arranged in vertical, horizontal and stagger assembling forms as the demand. When the electrical system has short circuit, the short-circuit current with high values will be generated. If it is not restricted, it is very difficult to maintain the dynamic stability and thermal stability of the electrical equipment. Therefore, in order to satisfy the interrupting capacity requirement of some disconnectors, reactors are usually connected in the outgoing breaker in series, so as to increase the short-circuit impedance and limit the short-circuit current.

    How to Reduce Ripple of Switching Power Supply?

    As to the ripple wave of the switching power supply, it certainly exists both theoretically and practically. Generally speaking, here are some approaches restraining or reducing it.
    Reducing EMI - diode back connection inductance
    The metal shell can be adopted as the shield which is used to reduce the radiated interference of the external electromagnetic field. In order to reduce the electromagnetic interference of the power line input, the power input terminal is equipped with the EMI power line filter, just as the below diagram shows (EMI filter is also named as the power line filter). This is also a method usually used to restrain the high-frequency noise.

    Pressure Transducer Troubleshooting

    Generally, DCS system treats the current higher than 20.2mA or less than 3.8mA as a fault, and the pressure transducer also has fault current settings. For example, it can set the fault current of pressure transducer to 3.6mA or 22.8mA, or setting as needed and related to failure alarm setting. When the output current of pressure transducer is less than 4mA or greater than 20mA, it refers to the common saying that the instrument display is below zero or the instrument display is maximum. In this case, the fault is analyzed and judged in excess of the range. When checking the over-range fault of pressure transducer, firstly check the components related to the process, whether the process parameters have significantly changed, whether the instrument sampling valve and connecting pipes are normal, whether the connecting line or safety grille is faulty or damaged. Then check the pressure transducer itself, whether its range is selected correctly, whether the measuring diaphragm and circuit board break.

    How to Connect Load Cell to PLC?

    In our load cell product pages, when we introducing the load cells, we often say that you can buy a transmitter/amplifier with a customized output signal (0-5V, 0-10V, 4-20mA) to output standard signal to PLC, DCS and other control systems. Then someone will ask us how to connect load cell to plc. Now today we will explain the connection methods of load cell in details. When forming the weighing and batching control system with PLC, there are four connection methods for load cell.

    How to Select a Line Reactor for VFD?

    The main function of DC reactor is to reduce the higher harmonic components of the input current, improve the power factors of the input power source, and limit the short-circuit current. Before the DC reactor is connected with the filter capacitor, it hinders the impulse current amplitude entering the capacitor, and reduces the AC impulse of the busbar. When the power of the frequency converter is higher than 22kW, it is suggested to consider the application of DC reactor. The greater the power of the converter is, there should be a higher possibility of using the reactor. Because when there is no DC reactor, the capacitor filtering of the frequency converter will result in the serious distortion of the current wave, thus further causing the serious distortion of the network voltage waveform. In addition, it is very harmful to the service life of the rectifier bridge and filter capacitor of the frequency converter.

    Proximity Sensor Selection Guide

    Proximity sensor belongs to the non-contact static position switch. When an object approaches it at a certain distance, the proximity switch gives an action signal. Different from the mechanical position switch that needs to be applied with mechanical force, the proximity switch acquires signal by the change of medium energy between the probe and the object under test. The proximity switch is widely used and has exceeded its scope of limit and protection, and common applications include speed measurement, liquid level control, and metal detection. When you are going to buy a proximity sensor but without any suggestion of others, you will be clear after reading this article.

    Load Cell Installation and Requirements

    Installation quality of load cells is decided by horizontal and vertical placement and height adjustment.

    Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter Price List

    A power inverter or inverter plays a role in converting the DC power from batteries to AC power for charging most appliances. According the output wave forms, it can be mainly divided into modified sine wave inverters and pure sine wave inverters. Then, what are the differences between them?
    A modified sine wave inverter outputs waveform that has a time interval from the maximum value in the positive direction to the negative value in the negative direction. That means, the waveform is still composed of broken lines, thus without good continuity. However, pure sine wave inverters can output stable true sine wave power as good as the one from the grid we use every day, without electromagnetic pollution. However, the pure sine wave inverter can output stable true sine wave power as good as the one from the grid we use every day, without electromagnetic pollution. It works higher efficiently, suitable for all kinds of loads. The pure sine wave inverter can be applied for common appliances and devices without interference.

    What is Single Phase to 3 Phase Converter?

    Traditional phase conversion system adopts rotary transformation technology, which has 50 years of history and simple product structure in early times. It consists of a transformer, three-phase motor, capacitor and relay control circuit. As long as the 220V power is connected, the auxiliary motor starts, the starting capacitor is disconnected and the motor is turned into a generator, thus producing missing phase. A fairly rough three-phase electric lead can be produced to provide power supply for other electrical equipment. Such a traditional conversion system doesn't have the adaptive control function, so there are many defects in its application. When the load varies widely, the three-phase output voltage will be unbalanced. At free load or light load conditions, the output voltage will rise to more than 25% of the rated output voltage; When the load is too large, it will also greatly reduce the output voltage, making it difficult for the device to start or stop running. However, the single phase to 3 phase power converter of ATO uses many important new technologies, the newly invented built-in micro-control computer control program makes our products to have a qualitative leap in conversion efficiency and performance.

    Difference Between Current Sensor and Current Transformer

    Current transformer is mainly used to measure the current of busbar and primary side with iron core coils in AC occasion.

Technology and design of the current transformer are complex, its common precision is 5%, it's difficult to reach 0.5% because phase position and compensation are difficult. A current transformer is an electrical component that turns large current into small current, it doesn't change the current frequency but only the size. Its secondary side current is 5A, that means the output rated current is 5A. It's mainly used for electrical control, measurement, protection and signal.
