High temperature industrial router for outdoor datalogging and communication

It may not officially be winter yet, but here in Shakopee, MN it certainly feels like winter. We’ve hit some very frigid temperatures this week, falling into single digits even before the wind chill is taken into consideration. And while the view of sundogs in the icy air and sparkling snow is enough to make any hardy Minnesotan feel warm inside, it does feel like the perfect time to highlight the extended temperature range and optional communication options of our C6 Industrial VPN Router.

KEB’s Harmonic Filters Reduce Harmonic Distortion

For this article, we will discuss the harmonic distortion created by the input stage of a VFD and how KEB harmonic filters can be implemented to reduce these harmonics. Variable frequency drives (VFD) used in industrial applications provide many benefits including energy savings, better process control, extended component lifetime and increased machine safety when utilizing functional safety features. Variable frequency drives consist of three sub-systems. The diode bridge converter, DC bus, and IGBT output inverter. The diode bridge input rectifier typically consists of a full-wave 6-pulse rectifier which rectifies the incoming AC voltage into a DC voltage. The DC bus...
