Automation for amusement rides

Valleyfair is located right across the street from KEB America so we get daily reminders of the fun and thrills amusement parks offer.  Next time you see a roller coaster or amusement ride take some time to notice all the industrial automation equipment used: spring applied brakes, servo motors, HMIs, safety relays, etc.   This post outlines some of the considerations for designing automation for amusement rides and how KEB products can be used.   Safety   Thrill seekers go to amusement parks for a rush.  This means fast accelerations, sudden drops, and being inverted.  Part of the thrill comes...

Low Leakage EMI Filters for VFDs

KEB is somewhat unique among drive manufacturers because we offer an extensive selection of accompanying filters. Many competitors either don’t offer filters or try to private label others technology without understanding how the filters interact with the drives. KEB has its own team of R&D filter designers and this is part of the expertise we offer.     KEB offers different filter technology for different VFD challenges. We offer harmonic filters for reducing harmonic distortion to IEEE519 levels. We offer sinewave filters that can be used in high-speed applications or VFD applications with long cabling. The most common filter we...

Encoder position for permanent magnet motors in elevator applications

Permanent magnet (PM) motors have become popular options in elevator applications over the years due to their increased efficiency and performance characteristics. Since a PM motor’s rotor is magnetized by permanent magnets, rather than induced, the variable frequency drive (VFD) must know the rotor position in relation to a stator pole pair to modulate at the correct commutation angle to produce maximum torque output. The rotor position can be determined by an absolute position encoder mounted on the motor shaft. This article will explain how the rotor position of a PM motor is measured with the VFD and some common...

Designing an effective HMI display

The goal of any effective HMI display is to facilitate the flow of information between the machine and the human operating it. Today, UX (or User Experience) design is not really considered to be a discipline in its own right within the industrial manufacturing industry, so the task of designing HMI displays can fall to system integrators or IT personnel. If you’ve been tasked with setting up an HMI display for your installation, we can offer you a few pointers to make sure your displays are clear, uncluttered, and useful for the machine operators. For creating functional HMI displays, KEB...
