THE COMPANY

SmartWire-DT™ in Practice
With its official presentation of SmartWire-DT at the Hannover Fair 2009 Eaton set the most important milestone in the market launch of the product. The Solutions editor spoke to Karl-Heinz Arndt, head of SmartWire-DT development at Eaton, and Dr. Martin U. Schefter, Business Unit Manager for Industrial Automation and General Manager of Eaton Industries Holding GmbH, about customers’ experiences with SmartWire-DT and further development steps in the technology.
Dr. Martin U. Schefter Karl-Heinz Arndt

SmartWire-DT has been available on the market for well over a year. What conclusions can you now draw and what has been the response of the market to the new technology? K.H. Arndt: The sales figures are surprisingly positive. In the first nine months alone, customers have implemented around 25,000 connections. This does not include the North American market since we will not approach this market until the SmartWire-DT system has UL/CSA approval. We are planning the market launch in North America for the beginning of 2011. At the start of the launch you offered both the switching and protective devices as well as the pilot devices all equipped with the communication system. What does the time scale look like for future product groups? K.H. Arndt: We are making rapid progress. This year we have fitted part of the circuit-breaker series and the PKE electronic motor protection from 12A to 32A with SmartWire-DT. The PKE range up to 65A will be completed in the coming year. We will also include the DS7 soft starter in the SmartWire-DT system in 2011. In order to get a better picture and perspective, what percentage of switching devices, protective devices and pilot devices sold today are networked via SmartWire-DT? Dr. M.U. Schefter: Our expectations are realistic. The percentage is currently in single figures but this is increasing strongly. In order to make SmartWire-DT broadly available on the market, you announced last year the wish to form strategic partnerships with well-known companies. How far have these talks developed?

Dr. M.U. Schefter: We are currently in discussions with several partners. We are offering a SmartWire-DT development kit in 2011, enabling 3rd party users to integrate SmartWire-DT into their products. SmartWire-DT eliminates the need for the I/O level on the central controller so this benefit was already announced to users. Does this visionary goal still stand and when do you think it will become reality. K.H. Arndt: SmartWire-DT was designed in this way from the start, and this benefit is a key element of our technology. All applications already implemented to date have shown emphatically that the I/O level is no longer needed. In order to further advance this vision, we will be expanding the 2011 product range by providing the control relays (easy), CoDeSys-based PLCs and HMIs with integrated SmartWire-DT. This is interesting for small to medium-sized applications as the user no longer needs a gateway. When will your frequency inverters have the interface? Dr. M.U. Schefter: We will also be fitting our M-Max and H-Max frequency inverters with a SmartWire-DT interface within the next 18 months. It is not our aim to replace established fieldbus systems with SmartWire-DT. We will continue to offer switchgear with fieldbus interfaces such as Profibus-DP, CANopen … Our priorities are the reduction in wiring and design engineering on the one hand and cost-effective diagnostics on the other. This particularly applies to the control circuit devices and the motor starters that do not have any fieldbus interface and require a lot of wiring.

Industry Prize 2010 SmartWire-DT was also awarded the INDUSTRY PRIZE 2010 at this year’s Hannover Fair. For the past five years, the Karlsruhebased publishers Huber Verlag für Neue Medien has awarded the INDUSTRY PRIZE for the best solutions developed by German industry. Highly innovative product developments and new products are selected from companies in the industrial, supplier or service sectors. From over 400 entries in 2010, an expert jury consisting of professors, scientists, trade journalists, sector and industry experts, assessed all the products entered according to specific criteria: Innovation, effect on increasing efficiency, as well as suitability for small and medium-sized enterprises. What was particularly outstanding was the fact that Eaton Moeller was awarded both the overall winner title as well as the category winner for the electrical engineering sector. “The idea of SmartWire-DT has been around since the nineties. However, the technological requirements for the implementation in a compact space and at acceptable costs were not available until recent years. Today, the use of SmartWire-DT by customers couldn’t be easier. My team and I are naturally very pleased that we have once more gained a high reputation with SmartWire-DT,” Karl-Heinz Arndt explained.

Karl-Heinz Arndt and Dr. Martin U. Schefter (both from Eaton Industries) receive the Industry Prize 2010.

Bronze at 18th ITVA Award for ‘SmartWire-DT™ – That’s Life’ The film ‘SmartWire-DT – That’s Life’ was chosen for this year’s ITVA Award for exemplary audio-visual communication solutions in the sales promotion/marketing category and was awarded the Bronze Pyramid. The presentation ceremony took place on September 24 2010 during a gala event at the Photokina trade fair in Cologne. The jury praised the clear comparison of the old, very work intensive switch panel technology and the new SmartWireDT technology, as well as the attractive and new interpretation of the evolutionary concept.

Highspeed PLC
XC202 with Variable IP Addresses
Eatons XC-CPU202EC4M-XV rounds off the high end of its XC controller series. The XC202 is designed as a high performance PLC: A high-speed RSC processor (532 MHz) and a larger memory (4 MB) provide considerably greater resources for communication tasks. Compared to an XC-CPU201, the XC-CPU202 thus offers around a six to eight times faster processing speed. The high performance controller is now available and features an integrated Ethernet interface for programming access and data exchange in the network. The special feature of the new controller is the fact that users can access it via different IP addresses. For example, one can be configured as a programming port whilst another is provided solely as a data interface. A special function allows both the IP address and the subnet address of the controller to be defined individually. This enables the controller to be integrated simply in an existing corporate network. The XC202 fits seamlessly into Eatons existing XC range. Users can thus utilize all the input/output modules, communication modules and accessories available. Either MMC/SD memory cards or USB sticks can be used as the memory medium for data. The required operating system update (Windows CE 6.0) can be carried out via the Ethernet interface as well as via these memory media. Besides the Ethernet and combined CAN/easyNet interface, the XC202 also features a serial interface. This is designed for programming but also as a transparent interface for connecting barcode readers, printers or other devices. The interface can be programmed easily by means of a browser command for the required mode. The controller also comes with a web server which enables it to be accessed via the Internet. Users can easily call up all visualization pages created with the CoDeSys programming software using of a web browser. This type of web visualization is also ideal for remote maintenance tasks. As well as the Ethernet interface (with a display of the Link/ communication status) and the CANopen/easyNet interface (with a switchable bus terminating resistor), a 29-bit CAN identifier and a USB interface (2.0 Host), the high performance PLC comes with eight digital inputs and six digital outputs on board.

MFD-CP10 multi-function display
Low-cost visualization with twice the performance and an enhanced range of functions
Open and closed-loop control, display and operation in a compact format: Eaton has added two new CPU modules with a 24 V DC power supply to its MFD-Titan range. They can be fitted directly on the MFD-80 (IP65) display units in the usual manner and fastened via two standard 22.5 mm drill holes – plug & and work at its simplest. Like the tried and tested MFD-CP8.., the new CPU modules are available as a version with easyNet (MFD-CP10-NT) or as a “stand alone” version (MFD-CP10-ME). Compared to their predecessors, which are still available, the new MFD devices have twice the program and graphical screen memory and twice the processing speed. As well as a faster performance, Eaton offers the user a host of options for more powerful programming and program expansion, as well as a larger number of function blocks and screen elements in a program. All MFD components can be combined flexibly with each other, thus always offering the ideal solution for the tasks at hand. The following functions expand the range for the new members of the MFD-Titan series: A multiplexer function block from the easy800 series, simple scanning of the currently displayed screen, simple language selection during operation (such as German / English) and double the number of retentive markers. The associated EASY-M-512K memory card is designed for the external storing of a program, such as for transporting it or transferring to other CPU modules.

The MFD-Titan multi-function display with CPU and power supply unit can be expanded by users with inputs and outputs in order to produce a compact HMI device. It therefore offers the performance range of an easy800 together with powerful visualization features. The MFD-Titan can be connected to standard bus systems via easyNet. The customized labeling of the display using the Label-Editor software enables the unit to be given a customized appearance, for example with laser inscribed logotypes or affixed logos.

Depending on the version, an RS485 and a CAN/MPI or Profibus DP interface are provided in addition to the standard interfaces. Like all visualization devices of the xSystem product groups, the XV150 can be programmed as a PLC to IEC61131-3 with the Galileo visualization software or CoDeSys visualization software and with the CoDeSys-based xSoft-Codesys-2 programming system. Thanks to its small mounting depth, the panels can also be installed where users find space restricted. All display fronts can be inscribed with customer labels. The Eaton XV100 and XV150 touch displays and touch display/PLCs provide the user with a broadly based product range for price sensitive industrial

applications. From 3.5", 5.7" and 7" devices in a light and robust plastic housing up to the high-end XV150 in a metal housing (5.7", 8.4" and 10.4") with elegant aluminum front. Furthermore, the standard, long-standing and well-tried hardware platform offers maximum reliability and long-term available. All XV150 devices are compatible with the XV400 devices of the next higher performance class. The standard project design and programming tool for the XV series also supports the requirements for a modular machine design. Quicklink ID: ES2203

Developed for the North American Market
Circuit-Breakers for Rated Currents up to 32 A
Unlike PKZM4 motorprotective circuit-breakers, the PKZM4-..-CB circuitbreakers are provided with large creepage and clearance distances at the incoming and outgoing main current terminals. The new device height is therefore 165 mm. These changes and extensive testing have made it possible for the switches to be approved as fully-fledged circuit-breakers to UL 489 / CSA C22.2-5.09. On the PKZM4-..-CB, the current flow direction can be set as required – as is the case with the entire Eaton range of circuit-breakers. The circuit-breakers can be used as branch circuit protective devices (BCPD) in feeder and branch circuits. The switches can also be used for protecting non-motor loads. In order to use the PKZM4-CB, contactors and frequency inverters must be approved for protection by circuit-breakers. Motors will continue to be switched and protected by the Type E and Type F motor starters based on UL 508. Three types are on offer: Firstly PKZM4-16-CB (adjustable 10 - 16 A), secondly PKZM4-25-CB (adjustable 18 - 25 A) and thirdly PKZM4-32-CB (adjustable 24 - 32 A). The SCCR (short-circuit current rating) of the circuit-breakers is 65 kA for 480Y/277 V and 22 kA for 600Y/347 V, and they have a device width of only 55 mm. They are consequently turning into genuine problem solvers thanks to the high SCCR and suitability for 600Y/347 V.

New Contactors for 90 kW, 110 kW and 160 kW
Smaller, lighter, cheaper and more energy efficient
New materials and technological processes allow the development of new and attractive solutions. This fact is also the case at Eaton: The contactors for 90 kW, 110 kW and 160 kW represent the start of the new designs – making them smaller, lighter and cheaper. Eaton is offering DILM185A, DILM225A and DILM300A type contactors with an inexpensive electronic coil actuation and compact dimensions. The contactors can be used in applications such as the switching of motors to utilization categories AC-3 and AC-4 and for switching resistive and capacitive loads. The DILM185A and DILM225A contactors have the same base area and the same hole pattern as their predecessors. This makes it possible for all users to replace them easily. The depth, which has been considerably reduced by 28 millimeters, results in a significant weight reduction of over 70 percent. The new coil electronics reduces the power consumption in sealing 30 percent. The DILM300A contactor has a considerably smaller width, height and depth, thus saving space in the control panel and simplifying mounting. In addition to a smaller base area and mounting depth than before, as well as a reduced weight, the reduced power consumption is also a financial benefit. The contactors can naturally control operating voltages up to 1000 V.

The design, shape and color of the new DILM185A, DILM225A and DILM300A contactors fit seamlessly into Eaton’s entire contactor range. The accessories required, such as cable terminal block, covers and motor protective relays have been adapted by Eaton to match the new designs. Naturally, the associated Z5 overload relays for direct mounting or for separate mounting are still available for these contactors. Matching covers ensure that finger and back of hand protection is provided. Quicklink ID: ES2205

SOL30-SAFETY PV Fireman’s Switch
Safety has top priority
The “SOL30-Safety” is a DC switch-disconnector (32 A) in an IP65 enclosure. This is installed in direct proximity to the PV modules and inserted in the DC cable to the power inverter. The “PV fireman’s switch” has two switch positions. In the POWER position the current is fed through from the PV modules to the power inverter. In the SAFETY switch position, both DC cables are interrupted – the switch is also lockable, as is necessary for maintenance work in large solar installations. The integrated undervoltage release also enables the switch to be actuated remotely using a “PV emergency-stop pushbutton actuator”. If in the event of a fire, the fire brigade isolates the entire house from the grid, this automatically causes the tripping of the “PV fireman’s switch” and thus also the isolation of the PV cables. Any danger to rescue personnel from live DC cables in the event of a fire is thus totally removed. Eaton designed its fireman’s switch both for solar power systems in private homes, as well as for large PV installations on the roofs of public buildings or in agriculture. The SOL30-Safety “PV fireman’s switch” with a 230 V, 50 Hz undervoltage release is available from Eaton in three versions, depending on the connection type required: MC3, MC4 and metric screw coupling. The switch is tested in accordance with IEC/EN 60947-3 and is suitable for ambient temperatures up to 60° C. The maximum operating voltage Ue is 1000 V DC, the maximum operating current Ie is 32 A.

SmartWire-DT™
Güstrow Vocational College Uses SmartWire-DT™ Model Installation
In order ensure the long-term competitiveness of Germany as a place to do business, it is important to work at the base, i.e. ensure that a high standard of education is in place. What, however, makes up a good education? Mechatronics trainees at the Güstrow vocational college HIS (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) define good education as follows: “A good education is based in practice, combining theoretical knowledge with practical application and giving trainees a wide range of skills and abilities.”

the feedback function of the contactors to activate control signal lamps via SmartWireDT. This training step is used to demonstrate the scanning of contactor states and allows comparisons of the actual and target configuration. In further training steps, the trainees learn how to activate a pneumatic cylinder. A contactor switches the solenoid of the valve which moves the cylinder in and out. The end position sensors can be connected to the IO module and thus used in the program. For safety reasons, electric motors cannot be switched via the contactor, since there is no three-phase supply available in the college’s laboratory. The last task, the integration of an emergency-stop control system, is implemented so that the NC contacts of the emergency-stop switch open the enable inputs of the contactors. The switching information can also be passed on to the program via the bus. In this way, the trainees can work out the benefits of wiring the emergency-stop circuit quickly. At the same time, they can trip the necessary switching operations in the program without any further cabling required. The “Safe Stop” operating mode can be indicated via the lights of the experimenter board and a signal tower. Peter Kruse is impressed: “The tasks can be increased or reduced according to the capabilities of the trainee. This allows virtually all trainees to achieve success. SmartWire-DT makes this possible with simple handling.” Course lecturer Kruse adds: “Working with the experimenter board has proved worthwhile. The trainees have to become acquainted with a new system and commission the installation on their own. SmartWire-DT is particularly suitable for this since only a few steps are needed to set up the bus connection. The extensive preinstallation on the experimenter board allows the users to come to successful results quickly. In this way, the practical training promotes the gathering of experience and the development of specialist expertise – training at its best. Thanks to the kind support of Eaton Industries we have been able to integrate a valuable module in our training syllabus.” Quicklink ID: ES2207

In the automation department, trainees were recently able to put a SmartWire-DT (SW-DT) model installation into operation. For this, Eaton Industries in Bonn provided the HIS Güstrow vocational college with all the components required. In the course section “Networking automation systems” the SW-DT system had to be used as an example of a passive Profibus slave with a gateway function. Together with a few trainees, Peter Kruse, specialist trainer for automation, completed the installation: “The simple demonstration of a new technology only brings a few benefits. Product videos only provide trainees with information but do not give them any lasting specialist expertise. After receiving my inquiry, Dipl. Ing. Heribert Einwag, the engineer responsible for SmartWire-DT at the Electrical Sector EMEA of Eaton Industries, was immediately willing to provide a model installation free of charge. I then developed an experimenter board with which our trainees could create a training installation simply and clearly.” The experimenter board is designed so that the overview circuit with all bus stations is shown on the front. All the devices are clearly fitted on the back. A complete covering of the rear was not regarded as practical since it is required that the trainees are able to fit on the Profibus connection cable and also actuate the rear configuration button. Thanks to the prepared experimenter board, the trainees can be trusted to carry out different experiments. The commissioning of the bus system is the first task. For this the trainees receive a worksheet with a system overview. Peter Kruse used the view of the SW-DT-Assistant software which is ideally suited for this purpose. The necessary steps in the Simatic Step 7 hardware configuration program are also guided. By working carefully, trainees can thus create a functional installation rapidly. According to Peter Kruse, trainees often unfortunately make mistakes in selecting the bus stations. The troubleshooting process should then allow trainees to rectify the incorrect component selection as independently as possible. Only when the bus connection is fully set up can the trainees start to configure simple switch operations, such as implementing the switching of lights and contactors. In later training steps they use

Solar Power Stations
Prototype of a Parabolic Trough Solar Collector Uses Air as Heat Transfer Medium

Today’s parabolic trough power plants use either steam, thermal oil or liquid salt as a circulating heat transfer medium. However, these types of media have the disadvantage that they circulate in the solar field at high pressure. In the event of a leak therefore both persons and the environment are at risk. For example, around one million liters of thermal oil are used for a 50 MW power station.
The Swiss company Airlight Energy Manufacturing SA based in Biasca designed quite a revolutionary concept for how electrical energy can be generated from the sun in future using parabolic trough power plants – in an environmentally safe way and with a high level of personal safety.

an area of 600 x 600 km would be enough to cover the total world’s energy requirement. Large desert regions in northern and southern Africa, in Mexico, the Arabian Peninsula, as well as some regions of India and Australia would be suitable for locating large power stations. Airlight Energy chose air as the absorber medium and can thus make use of two particular benefits: Air enables temperatures of over 600° C to be reached, and also the use of air as the heat transfer medium provides the option of storing the energy recovered in a store filled with pebbles. At night the flow direction is thus simply reversed and the stored heat is taken from the pebbles. In this way, solar energy can be generated as needed. With this development, Airlight Energy is working to achieve technological simplicity, reduced costs and to increase the overall

Airlight Energy Holding SA and its subsidiary Airlight Energy Manufacturing SA, based in Biasca/Switzerland was founded in January 2007 by five Swiss private investors who financed the initial development phase. Another investor joined the company in May 2007. Airlight Energy pursues the aim of finally being able to create an environmentally friendly and economical system of producing electricity from solar energy. The project is supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.

efficiency of the parabolic trough power plants. Andrea Pedretti, head of technological development at Airlight Energy, explained that the basic idea arose in a phone call from a student in Australia, who asked how it might be possible to use membranes for solar collectors. Virtually perfect parabola The suggestion proposed in the form of a question gave the initial spark: A parabolic reflector could be built from a coated, expandable membrane made from Mylar film. This enables solar energy to be produced reliably and cost-effectively in power stations. The basic concept included the simple idea of using air pressure to shape a foil fixed at both ends into a “perfect” curvature. However, the air pressure applied to the reflector foil required an enclosed space, i.e. a cover foil that spanned over the collector. The pressure chamber thus formed is pressurized to a few millibars using a variable speed fan. The cover foil is made from a transparent, low refractive ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) material offering high light and UV permeability as well as a low tare weight. A silicon fiber glass fabric is tensioned onto the base structure to thus produce a 2-volume-pillow system. Thanks to further innovations from Airlight Energy it was possible to achieve an almost perfect parabolic curve that ensures a high radiation concentration onto the receiver.

High innovation partnered by specialists As an additional step, Airlight Energy developed its own supporting structure: The use of light precast concrete elements on site significantly eliminated the maintenance work required. This allows the supporting structures to be rotated on the foundation with very little energy required. The mirror can track the position of the sun precisely at any time thus ensuring optimum use of the sun’s radiation. Data from NASA as well as from meteorological stations is used and evaluated in the main computers in order to calculate the optimum inclination of the collector. At wind speeds over 25 m/s, the collector is moved into the safe horizontal position. The R & D work is partnered by specialists from the SUPSI technical university in Tessin, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ), as well as the Paul Scherrer Institute. The project is also supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. A test programme is currently being completed at the installation site of the 3rd prototype in Biasca, where the relevant data is also being collected and the mathematical models validated. All essential indicators such as temperatures in the collector and in the storage bed are recorded, documented and visualized on screens in the control room. Reliable miniature circuit-breakers and residual current devices Eatons Moeller business supplied miniature circuit-breakers and RCD devices (PLSM and PFIM), as well as EMR4 measuring and monitoring relays and an NZM2 circuit-breaker which is used as a main switch. The main task of the products was to monitor the cables and systems for overcurrents or short-circuits. Airlight Energy awarded the contract to Eaton due to the impressive features of the overall package: the high standard of finishing and material quality of all products; the fast mounting of the miniature circuit-breakers and residual current devices in the control panel – thanks to the busbar system for Xpole devices; their versatile range of application options; their comprehensive range of approvals and in no small part the global service provided by Eaton.

Since the seventies complete sorting and packaging systems have been developed and manufactured for the fruit and vegetable industry, with applications worldwide. Gillenkirch is taking up the challenge of offering top products for worldwide use with customized products and systems.

The latest example is an installation designed as a complete solution for a Swiss customer. The potatoes supplied locally by the growers are first tipped into a silo, from where conveyor belts take them to a washer and move them finally to a polishing and drying system. Before the potatoes are stored in the silo, they are put through a quality control. The potatoes are taken from the different silos for particular varieties and fed to a scales and packaging machine. The entire process is controlled and monitored by a process control system. The core of the control system is made up of an 8 meter wide switchboard containing the following Eaton components: circuitbreakers and motor-protective circuit-breakers, contactors, compact PLCs, the SmartWire-DT connection and communication system as well as frequency inverters and soft starters. The open-loop and closed-loop control of system sections is implemented with the XC200 modular PLC which is connected to the system via its integrated Ethernet and CANopen interface. The data is exchanged with the touch displays and the higherlevel control system via Ethernet. The fieldbus level is addressed via CANopen. As a special feature, all 270 contactor-controlled drives use PKE/SmartWire-DT to provide current measuring for preventative maintenance. In order to shorten installation times on site, all motor feeders are fitted with plugs which can be plugged onto the contactor directly without any intermediate terminal strip. Gillenkirch developed a metal support especially designed for fastening the motor cables in the switchboard so that 60 motor starters can be assembled compactly in each section. The modular approach not only reduces mounting times in the workshop, but also simplifies the writing of future quotations. In order to work with as many identical parts as possible when assembling the switchboards, Eaton’s value added logistics fitted the motor starters with a standard contactor size on the busbar. The exchangeable bimetal block of the PKE could be fitted at a later time after the motor list is approved by the end customer. This enables the drives to be pre-installed – even without a knowledge of the exact current values – so that the system could be shipped quickly to the Swiss customer. All controlled drives are implemented via frequency inverters of the M-MAX series, which are also connected to the modular PLC via CANopen. These have the task of optimally adapting the conveyor speeds and water volumes to the relevant production process. The PKE enhanced with SmartWire-DT enables all switching states of the contactors and motor-protective circuitbreakers to be signalled and shown in the higher-level production control system without the need for complex wiring. Preassembled cables/connectors are used for

the connection between motor starters and SmartWire-DT – thus eliminating the need to use a screwdriver 3240 times, as required for 270 drives using the conventional method. The combined assembly of the control cables with the power supply in the SmartWire-DT system also results in an increased Performance Level as the energy for the individual drive is isolated twice as it were in the event of an emergency-stop: A 65 A contactor disconnects the supply conductor to the 400 V AC main distribution busbar and the motor contactor is also switched off by disconnecting the power supply from the 24 V DC network of SmartWire-DT. Thanks to the high short-circuit rating of the PKE motor-protective circuit-breakers, an additional back-up fuse was unnecessary. The consistent use of the bus systems down to the field level and the extensive modular design result in a significant reduction in costs – equally in terms of design, mounting and quotations as well as in terms of shorter delivery times.

PKE motor-protective circuitbreakers with SmartWire-DT™ technology
Motor starter combinations with PKE together with SmartWireDT allow integration into the automation world: The modular PKE-SWD-32 COM interface is used to implement different signalling functions such as diagnostics, status or overload signals, as well as the actual current flow of the PKE. The data can be transferred directly to the controller and is made available to the entire installation. The data transparency thus created increases the efficiency and operational reliability of the drives in the area of the motor-protective circuit-breaker. PKEs – integrated in the SmartWire-DT system – increase system availability by transferring process data, reduce the wiring in the control circuit and save time-consuming troubleshooting during commissioning and maintenance.

CONCLUSION Oscar Manteca, partner at Gillenkirch had this to say: “We set high standards in quality, reliability and service for all system sections. Innovations such as SmartWire-DT help us to continuously further develop our product range and keep it in line with the latest state-of-the-art. As we were able to impressively reduce the installation times, it was even possible to supply the system described here before the agreed date. The integrated current measuring of all loads enables the direct signalling of different load states on the process control system. The system operator carries out any optimization online and thus avoids production downtimes. We are very satisfied with the new SmartWire-DT solution.”

Mediterranean Lifestyle
Eaton SmartWire-DT™ automates a grape pressing system for Italian wine production
It’s a well-known fact that wine, bread and olive oil are some of the essential foods in southern countries like Italy – things that help to make up the Mediterranean lifestyle. Italy is one of the major wine producing countries in Europe, with more than 60 million hectoliters of wine being produced in an area of over 908,000 hectares (as at 2000). The Italian company Pimmel Automazioni uses Eaton automation technology to ensure the high level of quality in wine production.
Pimmel S.r.l., an Italian company based in Gaiarine Treviso, started in 1986 with heating control concepts for wine production and for the production of sparkling wine in autoclaves. Control systems were also developed for other phases of the wine making process such as feeding, grape pressing, the filtering and stabilizing of production processes. The company now primarily develops highly specialized electrical systems and automation solutions for industrial and building applications. Nowadays, Pimmel meets every customer need, from the traditional electrical system up to the management of electrical systems and machines equipped with high-tech automation controllers and personal computers.

Pimmel S.r.l., an Italian company based in Gaiarine Treviso, was founded in 1987 and primarily operates in the field of highly specialized electrical systems and automation solutions. The company covers here both the industrial and the building sector. With its extensive know-how Pimmel offers fully developed solutions on the market that meet virtually every requirement in the production process. The company guarantees top product quality standards through heavy investments in new production technologies. It also offers excellent pre-sales and post-sales services. Moreover, Pimmel fosters an optimum working environment for its keen and conscientious employees as well as the further development of a quality culture.

Highly efficient processing The automation of a new grape press had to be implemented in a winery plant. This required the control of the grape washing plant, the grape feeding system and the control of the valves for distributing pressed wine. In addition to this, the end customers placed considerable importance on the ability to monitor the entire system, to document all operating phases automatically, to manage alarm messages and to archive process data. A further requirement was the integration of the automation solution in the customer’s own IT infrastructure, in order to ensure a seamless data flow from the process level right up to management level. Outstanding automation solution The automation system consists of three units – an operator panel, a main panel and three secondary panels. The core of this automation solution is made up of PLCs, touch panels with a graphical user interface, as well as Windows-compatible software. Thanks to the special software solutions developed by Pimmel, the customer can monitor the entire installation, track all operating phases precisely, manage alarm messages and archive data processes. The operator panel consists of a field of pushbutton actuators, an IPC with a 17" screen for monitoring the system and a 3.5" XV-102 touch panel. The main control panel manages the entire power section for the stemmer-crusher machines and those for stalk and vinasse extraction. The three secondary panels house remote I/O stations which control the electropneumatic valves of the product sorting section and the mashing and sanitization section. The communication between the main panel and the three peripheral panels is implemented via CANopen. Pimmel has already been relying on the automation devices of Moeller and Micro Innovation for several years. Both companies now belong to Eaton, a leading global power management company worldwide. Pimmel uses the remote I/Os of the XI/ ON series, HMI/PLCs of the XV series, as well as low-voltage switchgear such as circuit-breakers and motor starters. Inside the main panel, a XION remote I/O station is used for the acquisition and management of all the signals coming from the process. The higher rated motors above 7.5 kW are fed from SLX frequency inverters, while M-MAX frequency inverters and DS4 soft starters are used for all the other smaller motors. Pimmel also chose Eaton’s SmartWire-DT intelligent communication system for switchgear and control circuit devices. All motors and the pushbutton actuator field on the operator panel are controlled via SmartWire-DT, since the key benefit of SmartWire-DT results from the elimination of control circuit wiring and simpler commissioning and engineering. Several

price evaluations verify SmartWire-DT as a significant means of reducing the otherwise usual assembly and wiring costs – by more than 60 percent. This also reduces the high project engineering requirements for the PLC I/O modules. SmartWire-DT also enables a more compact panel design.

Users are impressed by the very simple SmartWire-DT technology: Without any additional and special automation knowhow, every slave on the SmartWire-DT line can be automatically assigned an address on the gateway at the push of a button, in the order of the slaves connected. The individual slaves, such as contactors or indicator lights are not activated until the address is called. The maximum length of the SmartWire-DT bus is 600 meters inside or outside of the switching cabinet, connecting up to 99 slaves. Pimmel was also able to considerably simplify all wiring and testing processes for the automation of its grape press plant – thanks to the flexible and easy-to-use SmartWireDT communication system. This includes clear status LEDs that are integrated in all connected SmartWire-DT slaves. Pimmel customers, whether from Italy, Europe or overseas, gave an extremely positive response to the use of SmartWire-DT.

Photovoltaic Roofs
Always Tracking and Facing the Sun
Farmbau Fertigsysteme is a company that has now developed the Vario Sun House, a house with an adjustable photovoltaic roof, having already developed the rotatable photovoltaic Sun House that fully follows the position of the sun. The Vario Sun House follows the course of the sun on two axes – the inclination and the cardinal direction. Unlike the rotatable Sun House, the building stays in the same position and only the roof changes its angle. The Vario Sun House is either supplied as a bungalow with a flat roof and roof garden or with a second penthouse floor and roof garden area that is easier to integrate. For all its control components and corresponding automation software Farmbau relies on top quality and cost-efficient technologies from Eaton.

Farmbau Fertigsysteme GmbH is based in Langenburg and was founded in 1997 by Wolfgang Maier. Success started with round reinforced concrete tanks, for which an infinitely variable round shell was developed. Farm shed buildings made from thermally insulated concrete sandwich panel structures represent another source of business. These were gradually optimized and also adapted for office buildings, halls and private homes. Today the Sun House and the Vario Sun House now represent milestones. Farmbau places importance on its own know-how, ranging from the pre-assembly plant in Insingen, the planning office, the statics department, right through to the competent team, that offers the state-of-the-art building.

Photovoltaic systems use virtually every ray of the sun to turn its energy to electricity and thus to financial benefit. Buildings with a monopitch roof construction produce a large usable area for installing modules. The autotracking of the photovoltaic area will then obviously produce a higher yield. With Farmhaus prefabricated systems, owners themselves decide whether the roof is to be fitted with standard, high performance or partially transparent glass modules, thus determining the possible financial yield. Farmhaus offers the Vario Sun House in a range of sizes and with different features. The entire roof area of the Vario roof is moved hydraulically using four cylinders. A lattice girder system transfers the static forces into the four fulcrums. Two cylinders are moved in on each fulcrum and stabilize the system. The other two cylinders tilt the roof according to the position of the sun, following the cardinal direction in three stages, east, south and west. The building envelope is state-of-the-art: effective thermal insulation, modern heating systems, unrestricted scope for design and a square ground plan for optimum room utilization with small exterior wall areas. The photovoltaic roof above the building also protects the roof garden and creates additional usable space.

Users value the tried and trusted easy800 I/O modules due to their simple networking capability: This allows up to seven modules to be connected on the XV panel via the easyNet, thus creating up to 280 I/Os. Their small standard front dimensions enable them to be mounted in subdistribution systems. They are available in AC and DC versions that can also be used together. The maximum expansion in the easyNet is up to 1000 meters. Visualization with Galileo Galileo is an easy-to-learn, and nevertheless powerful and comprehensive project design environment, ideally suited for all machine and process-oriented applications in system and machine building. With its non-sector specific design, Galileo offers seamless project design for all graphical operator units from the Eaton HMI product range as well as for PC single-user solutions. Galileo always provides the project designer with the full functionality without any graduated restrictions on tags (variables) or screens, according to the performance specifications of the panel used. Galileo can be connected simply and safely to both the control level or the office world. With this full range of functions it is possible to fulfill virtually any wish: Drag & drop positioning (wysiwyg) of the objects, simple object parameterization, enhanced password handling with complex password and aging function, comprehensive recipe handling, alarm handling (with time stamp, history and diagnostics support with picture display), convenient series assignment of texts and pictures to variables, many graphical objects (such as bar graph, slide adjuster, graph plotter, curve chart, camera etc.), dynamic switching of units of measure, direct printing on the panel (reports, forms), import of 15 different picture formats, simple import of PLC tags, online language change, Unicode support (also Asian character sets), text import/export in XML format (e.g. Excel).

CONCLUSION High performance – designed cost-effectively The precise control of the entire roof area according to the course of the sun is implemented with a compactly designed HMI-PLC – the XV100 (XV-102-D6-57TVR-10-PLC) Micro Panel. The highperformance PLC integrated in the XV100 touch panel handles the necessary complex calculations of the sun’s position, and guides the Vario roof from east to west – following the sun. The proven easy800 modules are used as cost-effective I/O. With the XV100 (5.7 inch widescreen TFT color display with resistive touch technology) deployed here, Farmhaus is using the Compact class – offering maximum performance in a small format. With its robust design, the XV100 not only offers a fully developed operating unit but also a high performance: a powerful 400MHz RISC processor, onboard memory of 128MB, expandable as required with an SD card, a small mounting depth, Ethernet interface onboard, also CAN, Profibus, RS232 or RS485 as an option and also a USB Host interface (from 5.7" display size). Christian Vetter is the owner of Vetter-Steuerungstechnik, a new company based in Pfinztal-Söllingen that has established itself on the market in the field of controllers, visualization, PLC programming and consulting for special machine building. He had the following to say: “We have handled and programmed the project. The XV100 touch panel and likewise the products of the easy series are ideal for the Vario Sun House from Farmbau. The automation offers high performance and is exactly dimensioned. With easySoft for relays and easySoft-CoDeSys as a runtime environment, we have two powerful programming interfaces with many ready-to-use function blocks. They simplify our programming requirement and thus reduce development costs.” www.vetter-steuerungstechnik.de

Pico Breweries
Brewing Beer Yourself
Beer is a drink enjoyed all over the world. It has a tradition that goes back centuries. In Germany, the use of pure ingredients for top quality brewing was ensured very early on with the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, which stipulated that only water, hops and the malt produced from barley could be used in the process. Whilst beer is currently enjoying an increase in demand, it is nevertheless produced as a bulk product. However, many beer lovers appreciate a more individual taste. This is why Pico brewing systems allow you to brew virtually any beer yourself using the same methods as the small craft breweries. Highly reliable Eaton components are used for the visualization, operation and control of the Pico brewing systems.
The ProDesign consultant engineers based in Tuttlingen specialize in the design and development of machines, special machines and complete production systems, as well as in the development of compact brewing systems for the catering sector. Two home brewing systems are currently available – the Pico 50 and Pico 150.The two sizes differ primarily in the yield per brewing process: The Pico 50 EP offers customers 50 liters of yield per brew, whilst the Pico 150 EP offers 150 liters. Stylish high-end compact brewing system The Pico compact brewing system is a dual component brewing system in a stainless steel frame, consisting of two partially integrated stainless steel containers which serve as a brew kettle and straining vat. The visible area of both containers is lined in copper. Their removable lids are designed as wrought copper covers, one of which is provided with a small double-door opening. All horizontal surfaces are made from 20 mm granite blocks. The front of the system is made from 1.0 mm copper plate (partially reinforced), whilst the sides of the system are made from 1.5 mm stainless steel. The frame is fitted on four heavy duty castors (two fitted with a brake). The system is provided with outgoing connections, one for the electric current and one for filling the water tank. The internal piping is made from stainless steel and food-safe flexible steel tubing. Both Pico systems come with an integrated automatic mash and boiler unit which can be programmed with a touch panel. High performance HMI-PLC Pico brewing systems rely completely on the products of Eaton for open-loop and closed-loop control. A high performance HMI-PLC XV100 is used, either with a 5.7 or 7 inch widescreen TFT color display with resistive touch technology (front protection to IP65). An XV400 with a stainless steel front (IP69k) could also be used if required. This HMI-PLC of the XV series forms the core of each Pico brewing system. The controller integrated in the panel (400 MHz RISC processor) runs on the easySoft-CoDeSys programming system. CoDeSys Target Visu is used for the visualization. easySoft-CoDeSys combines open-loop/closed-loop control and visualization in one software system. The Eaton XV panels used in Pico brewing systems support CoDeSys Target Visu and Galileo (optional CoDeSys Web-Visu) visualizations.

Its development, design and production know-how are based on the many years of experience of its employees. The construction of compact brewing systems for the catering sector was an additional, and yet important and constantly growing area of the company.

Visualization – combinable as required Galileo: Eaton’s interactive visualization tool is an easy-to-learn and nevertheless powerful and comprehensive project design environment. With its non-sector specific design, Galileo offers seamless project design for all graphical operator units from the Eaton HMI product range as well as for PC single-user solutions. Galileo always provides the project designer with the full functionality without any graduated restrictions on tags (variables) or screens, according to the performance specifications of the panel used. CoDeSys Target visualization: For the visualization objects of a project the CoDeSys programming system creates ST code (structured text) which can be loaded onto the controller together with other program blocks. If the functions are supported correctly, the visualization can be started directly on the controller. CoDeSys web visualization: This enables the visualization objects of a project to be processed so that they can be loaded onto the controller in XML format. An integrated web server processes the controller data likewise in XML format and continuously refreshes the visualization displayed. Any other computer with an Internet connection can then access the visualization via a web browser regardless of the platform, for example for remote maintenance tasks.

easy800 for the I/O level An easy800 can be connected simply and conveniently to the panels of the XV series via easyNet. The CAN-based protocol is event-triggered and also offers a very high transfer speed even with low baud rates. On the face of it, the idea of using an easy800 for the I/O level of the Pico brewing systems seems somewhat unconventional, since the easy800 itself is an intelligent control relay. However, the easy800 offers some impressive benefits: An excellent price/performance ratio, 12 inputs (of which four can be used as analog inputs), 8 outputs (of which one can be used as an optional analog output), highspeed inputs up to 5 KHz (high-speed counters, frequency measuring, incremental encoders) and last but not least intelligent preprocessing.

CONCLUSION The general manager of the ProDesign GmbH engineering consultants in Tuttlingen, Dipl. Ing. (FH) Markus Salvermoser sums up: “We wanted a controller for our Pico brewing systems that offered simple and clear operation, visualization and control in equal measure. After all, our customers are beer enthusiasts and not control engineers. Furthermore, we wanted highly reliable components to ensure longterm satisfaction for our customers. All Eaton components, whether they are XV panels with easySoft-CoDeSys or easy800, meet these requirements – at attractive prices. Eaton employees gave us expert support with our projects, including the first test systems. Eaton products have now been successfully used in series production with flying colors.”

State of the Art
Motor and Pump Test Bench with SmartWire-DT™
The company Dipl.-Ing. Kögel & Ernst & Co. GmbH based in Sinzheim is fitting Eaton’s SmartWire-DT in its own motor and pump test benches which it uses for in-house requirements. The SmartWire-DT connection and communication system is used for controlling the test bench. In addition to the basic functions, the test bench is said to also serve as a showcase installation of the in-house panel building department. The test bench can thus also be presented to potential customers as an example of “state of the art” efficient panel building. At present SmartWire-DT is already being used to evaluate analog values (currents and load) in the PLC from NZM2 circuit-breakers and PKE electronic motor-protective circuit-breakers.
Kögel & Ernst operates in the field of repair and maintenance of electric motors, generators, servo drives, lifting equipment, pumps (drives) as well as in the construction of transformer stations and industrial controls (energy / automation technology). The motor and pump test bench designed as a showcase installation successfully handled a wide range of test tasks. Different rotary converter sets and a rotary transformer are switched alternatively to a test outlet. The voltage, current and frequency are measured at the test outlet itself. Flow and pressure are additionally measured on the pump test bench at six different measuring sections. The pump test bench is designed for machines up to 1200 kW. The showcase installation has a decentralized structure. The control panel with the SmartWire-DT components is thus located directly at the converter sets on the upper floor, thus allowing short power connections between these and the control panel. The control is implemented via SmartWire-DT with a Profibus interface to the central PLC, and a touch panel is connected via Ethernet. The test stations are located in a hall on the ground floor, the pump test bench is located in the covered courtyard area.

Lukas Kögel and Wolfgang Ernst founded the company “Elektromaschinenbau Dipl.-Ing. Kögel & Ernst” in Baden-Oos in 1955. At the beginning of 1994, the founders handed over all company shares to Hannes Kögel, who assumes sole corporate management. Kögel & Ernst, based in Sinzheim, has been authorized for a long time to repair explosion proof machines. The company has developed to become a competence center in the central Baden area for customer-oriented solutions for drive engineering with motors, pumps, system building, frequency inverters, transformer stations and panel building, control engineering and automation.

The test bay is controlled by means of a mobile touch panel with functions for: selecting the test station, switching on the required rotary converter set, increasing the voltage as required, displaying the required measured values, writing the required measured values (e.g. voltage/current over time or pressure over flow rate) and documenting the test results in a database. SmartWire-DT™ – simple and cost-effective Kögel & Ernst chooses its main suppliers carefully and negotiates trusted and long-standing collaborations as well as a continuous transfer of know-how regarding technical developments. The fitting of SmartWire-DT in its motor and pump test bench was therefore a logical step for Kögel & Ernst. For this various DILM contactors, NZM circuit-breakers and PKE electronic motor-protective circuit-breakers were used. These all have a SmartWire-DT connection. As the example for connecting a motor starter combination with the PKE electronic wide-range overload protection shows, Eaton implements standards that were specially tailored for Smart-Wire-DT: The PKE-SWD-32 function element enables users to integrate MSC-DEA motor starter combinations up to 32 A / 15 kW in the SmartWire-DT system. As well as activating the motor starter combination via SmartWire-DT, the function element transfers all relevant information about the motor branch circuit, such as motor current, thermal motor load, switching states, trip indications (e.g. overload, short-circuit, phase loss) and much more. The PKE-SWD-32 function element therefore replaces the control wiring with the integrated control of the motor starter combination and detects the switching states of contactor and motorprotective circuit-breaker alike. In this way, additional auxiliary contacts are not required. The PKE-SWD-32 also eliminates the need for external current transformers. Process failures can also be detected early thanks to the motor load data transferred. In all users are provided with an optimum overview of the motor branch circuit since all parameters set are transferred, such as Ir value, tripping class (CLASS) or type of PKE trip block. The integrated manual/auto switch enables either the manual or automatic control of the motor starter. The selectable ZMR overload relay function (automated off and on switching of the contactor in the event of an overload) is used for the fast restarting of the motor after overloads. SmartWire-DT can also communicate directly with compact circuit-breakers as well as control circuit devices and motor starters. For this the NZM XSWD-704 module is used. Control circuit devices with 1-bit data can be controlled in exactly the same way as circuit-breakers with 32-byte data. All NZM 2/3/4 circuit-breakers with an electronic release can be connected directly to SmartWire-DT via the NZM module. Power distribution currents up to 1600 A are thus within the access range of SmartWire-DT.

CONCLUSION Hannes Kögel, general manager of Dipl.-Ing. Kögel & Ernst & Co. GmbH summarizes: “Our company has already won several distinctions. Customer-oriented behavior, transparent working procedures, and motivated, qualified personnel form the foundation of our success. We chose SmartWire-DT because we see ourselves as a competence center and rely on innovative technology. The evaluation of the currents and the thermal load from NZM2 and PKE is an extremely interesting feature for the control of our motor and pump test bench. The data can be evaluated in the PLC very easily and economically with SmartWire-DT.”

Münsterland Brewery
xEnergy Ensures Optimum Availability
The Rolinck brewery based in Steinfurt can look back on a long tradition: The clarinetist Alexander Rolinck (1782-1849) was appointed to court musician and cup bearer of Prince Ludwig of Bentheim-Steinfurt in 1800. From 1820 onwards, he dedicated his life to his new passion – the brewing of beer. In order to meet the requirements of the continuously growing production process, a new and highly reliable energy distribution system was critical. xEnergy was chosen with its high level of availability.

Since the founding of the brewery there have naturally been several changes and new products, in addition to the main brand of smooth bitter Rolinck Pilsener, which is still on offer. Today the traditional brewery’s range now includes alcohol-free pilsner, Alex Rolinck fine lager beer, a beer cola mix (Bastard) and the calorie reduced Rolinck Radler shandy beer. With these brands, the brewery is able to meet the changing demands of its customers in terms of quality and taste. Rolinck has been part of the Krombacher brewery since 2007 and not only brews its regional Westphalian regional beer. All Krombacher bottles destined for export are bottled at Rolinck, and this includes the share of malt beer which Krombacher sells in collaboration with other breweries under the brand name Vitamalz. System installation with no delays An extended product portfolio as well the increased production volume called for new concepts in the energy supply of the

production plant. Whilst the BBC power distribution system in place at the Rolinck plant in Burgsteinfurt since 1974 still supplied power for the production machines, it was increasingly more difficult to connect new consumers, let alone ensure the long-term 24h availability of the plant. Additional production machines ultimately made it necessary to install a new power distribution system. The old installation was designed as a TN-C system. Today many consumers in the production area have a 5-pole connection. “On the other hand, old machines (power outgoers) are still designed as four-pole systems with a conventional PEN conductor,” Markus Wietkamp, head of electrical installations at Rolinck, explained. For this reason, the new xEnergy system is designed as a TN-C-S system with a PEN and a PE rail. The aim is to achieve a gradual changeover to an EMC compliant installation in the TN-S system. For this purpose, the PEN bridge was removed and the PEN labeled as a neutral rail.

Rolinck has been brewing pilsner in Steinfurt/Munsterland since 1875, and this is still the main brand of the brewery today. In January 2007, the A. Rolinck private brewery was sold to Krombacher, one of the largest private breweries in Germany. Anton Uhlenbrock GmbH based in Steinfurt is a company serving the industrial sector for industrial installations and machine building. Uhlenbrock handles all project phases such as planning, commissioning, maintenance and modernization.

In order to ensure as seamless a production flow as possible, the conversion phase was completed quickly and sufficient pre-production was carried out before the interruption. Anton Uhlenbrock GmbH, a company with a long-standing partnership with the Rolinck brewery, was awarded the contract to install the system. The close collaboration was focused on the refurbishment of electric motors. This also however involved the electrical installation, the compressed air conditioning and the energy distribution. “Thanks to xEnergy’s modular and flexible design, we were able to install and commission the xEnergy system at Rolinck in a very short time,” Rolf Hundeler electrical installation foreman at Uhlenbrock explained. xEnergy – safe energy distribution up to 4000 A xEnergy provides panel builders with a freely combinable product range for power distribution systems up to 4000 A. The system is a modular design and allows for a host of intelligent combinations. Switching and protective devices, as well as the associated mounting system and enclosure components are perfectly matched and form a technical and economical unit. The system platform allows individual project design, maximum flexibility and fast assembly in the workshop. Expanding the modular system in order to meet growing requirements is easy and quick, thus making it future-proof. The modular system integrates exactly tailored function modules that are type tested to IEC/ EN 60439, with Form 1 to Form 4b internal partitioning, and complies with the requirements of European and local installation standards (DIN, VDE, CEI, NF, UNE). Panel builders are provided with efficient tools for all stages from planning, to quotations right up to ordering. The documents and the switchboard front view are printed out with the order. If required, Eaton can supply the entire range packed in functional flat pack units or as a pre-assembled switching cabinet. Documents for the installation also come with detailed assembly instructions.

CONCLUSION “We are able to connect additional consumers without having to isolate the system – an outstanding benefit of the xEnergy system for us,” Markus Wietkamp, head of electrical installations at Rolinck, explained. “With our old system, we would have had to disconnect the entire panel and then reconnect – which meant in effect that we would have had the trouble of restarting the entire production process. This is why the xEnergy system was for us the only option,” Wietkamp added.

Ground Freezing Plant
Eaton After Sales Service Operation in Russia
The Moscow-based Russian minerals and chemicals company MCC EuroChem OJSC (EuroChem) gave Thyssen Schachtbau GmbH the contract to sink the approx. 1,1180 deep production shaft of the “Gremjatschinskij potash deposit”. The potash mine at the “Gremjatschinskij deposit” is located in the Kotelnikovo district of Russia’s Volgograd region, about 170 km south-west of Volgograd and some 20 km to the north-east of the town of Kotelnikovo.
The Russian mines are required in future to produce 2.3 million tons of potassium chloride a year. Potash is a relatively strategic raw material for Russia since potassium salts are primarily used for fertilizers in agriculture, and demand for it will continue to increase in future. The geological and hydrological findings obtained from the exploration drilling programme indicated that the freeze method would be required for sinking the 1,180 m deep shaft. Much of the overburden in the target area was described as ‘weak’ to ‘moderately stable’ and rated as ‘water bearing’. When the ground freezes, the groundwater is kept below zero by the cooling medium and is therefore frozen. With unstable rock layers or subsoils this creates a stable watertight area around the shaft. The groundwater level and the groundwater are thus usually unaffected by this so that the process is environmentally friendly. The freeze pipe sunk in this case is around 520 meters. The freeze plant uses ten 450 kW compressors which are controlled by Eaton DM4-340-315K soft starters. When the system was started, the circuit-breakers tripped for an unknown reason. A fairly typical case for the Eaton After Sales Service. As the hotline support could not come up with a solution, an on site service operation was necessary.
The compressors for the freeze plant are housed in the containers

Once on site, it soon became clear to Bernhard Teepe from the Eaton After Sales Service that connection faults in the compressor motors were the main cause of the systems malfunction. The labelling at the start and the end of the motor cable end had been incorrectly reversed. Furthermore, a soft starter was not optimally set, since Eaton’s DM4-340-315K Eaton soft starters can be configured for the more economical output level of 315 kW using the IN-DELTA circuit even though the motor has a 450 kW rating. With the IN-DELTA connection, the soft starter is installed in one of the delta windings of the motor and sized at a 58 percent (=1/√3) smaller current rating. Bernhard Teepe then set all motorprotective circuit-breakers and timing relays and corrected the circuit diagrams accordingly. After three days on site, the ground freezing plant worked perfectly so that the schedule for sinking the shaft could still be kept.

CONCLUSION Erhard Berger, Thyssen Schachtbau GmbH project manager for the ground freezing plant summed up as follows: “Bernhard Teepe gave us fast and expert help. Thanks to him the connection faults of the compressor supplier were identified and rectified so that the ground freezing plant could be put into operation on schedule.”

Oasis of the Seas
Sets sail with Eaton UPSs on board
What’s 361 metres long, 66 metres wide and attracts thousands of visitors every year? No, it’s not the Eiffel Tower with a 40-metre extension placed horizontally – it’s the world’s largest cruise vessel, Oasis of the Seas. This giant cruise ship features 16 passenger decks, encompasses 225,000 gross registered tons, accommodates 6,360 passengers and 2,100 crew members, and towers 72 metres above sea level at its highest point. Oasis of the Seas set sail on its maiden voyage on 5 December 2009, and as well as its massive physical size, the vessel has giantsized demands in terms of power consumption: its total requirement for uninterruptible power can be as high as 2,000 kVA. The need for power protection devices is equally massive.

“We supplied the cruise ship with more than 20 double-conversion online UPSs, ranging from 1 kVA to 350 kVA. The UPS delivery is without doubt the largest in our 40-year history of providing the marine industry with uninterruptible power systems,” says Rauli Lehtonen, Sales Manager at Eaton Power Quality. “The unparalleled size of the vessel and the variety of high-tech applications on board posed remarkable challenges in terms of power supply. One-hundred-percent reliable, continuous and clean power has to be guaranteed for the ship’s safety and cruising-related applications as well as commercial applications that affect customer satisfaction the most. Our customer cannot risk losing power in applications such as navigation equipment and emergency power and lighting. A loss of load would result in highly dangerous situations at sea,” explains Lehtonen. Reliable power leads to an enjoyable experience Conditions on board a ship differ significantly from those on shore: the power distribution network is ungrounded, and the electricity generated by the ship’s engines is not of uniform quality. That is why power needs to be double-converted for all critical applications. Ship vibration, shocks, inclination, temperature variation and very limited space present further challenges for the setup. In addition, every device securing safety and cruise-related systems needs to meet the stringent requirements set by various classification organisations.

“Eaton’s answer is double-conversion online topology. All our marine UPSs incorporate this; it can protect critical marine equipment from all types of power interruptions that may occur in the ship’s supply network. To guarantee continuous, high quality power to the most critical loads, the UPSs can be configured to provide parallel redundancy,” Lehtonen says. “Every Eaton marine UPS also has a hardened mechanical design, shock absorbers and a drip-proof cover. What’s more, they also employ the same global technical platform and the same core components as our standard UPSs. This enables the use of common spare parts and accessories and leads to effortless system upgrading, maintenance and service.” On board Oasis of the Seas, Eaton’s UPS systems protect critical applications including emergency lighting, navigation equipment, ship automation and HVAC applications as well as casinos, theatres and other entertainment venues against disruptive power interruptions. The delivery consisted of a set of Eaton 9395, 9390, 9355 and 9155 marine UPSs. “The project was a new milestone for us, as it saw the installation of the largest marine UPS we have ever delivered – the 350 kVA Eaton 9395 Marine UPS. The two 9395s on board Oasis of the Seas protect the most business-critical applications, including computer systems and energy-intensive cash registers,” Lehtonen explains.

Total power protection for the world’s largest cruise ship. Eaton supplied more than 20 doubleconversion online UPSs for this giant of the seas. The Oasis’s sister ship, Allure of the Seas, due to be delivered by the end of 2010, will also rely on Eaton’s expertise to secure power distribution network on board.

Eaton also supplied UPS batteries and transformers as well as PowerVision management software for system performance monitoring. Assembling a colossal puzzle Oasis of the Seas is constructed of 181 grand blocks, each weighing approximately 600 metric tons. Each block was first finished as far as possible, including the installation of electrical devices, and then the blocks were brought together. This colossal construction puzzle took almost four years from contract to delivery. “One characteristic of marine projects is that the UPS systems cannot be installed as a whole in one go. Batteries have to be delivered later, a few months before the ship delivery, otherwise they would suffer during the long construction period in the shipyard, with all the dust and dirt. They would also be worn unnecessarily and their service life could not be guaranteed. In the case of Oasis of the Seas, we supplied the UPSs in early 2008 and the batteries in autumn 2009,” explains Lehtonen. Eaton has a long and trusted partnership with both the owner and builder of Oasis of the Seas. “We have worked with Eaton for over 10 years in all of our most demanding cruise ship construction projects,” says System Coordinator Ville Talsi of shipbuilding group STX Europe, Turku, Finland. “Their high quality products and field services around the world have guaranteed an enjoyable cruise experience for passengers and uninterrupted working for the sophisticated technology on board our ships.” Eaton’s power protection solutions are employed in five of the Royal Caribbean International cruise line’s Voyager-class ships (completed in 1999–2002), three of its Freedom-class ships (completed in 2006–2008) and in both of its Oasis-class ships. Oasis of the Seas’ sister ship, Allure of the Seas, is due to be completed in late 2010.

E-Mobility – Eaton’s “Green Solutions”
Over 50 Million Kilometers with Eaton Hybrid Drives
Since April 2008, Moeller has been a part of the Eaton Electrical Sector of the Eaton Corporation. With Moeller, Eaton has considerably expanded its product portfolio so that almost half of the entire turnover was achieved in the Electrical Sector with 5.9 billion US dollars in 2009. 51 percent of total turnover is generated in the Industrial Sector with the Aerospace, Hydraulics and Vehicle businesses. What might not be common knowledge in Europe: Eaton is the only manufacturer in the world to offer a complete range of hybrid systems for utility vehicles and for buses.
Eaton started with the development of hybrid drive systems twenty years ago, long before the hybrid drive system was a commonly established term. Today, the hybrid drive, as a generic term for drive concepts with two different energy sources, is a leading technology for reducing the consumption and emission values of automotive vehicles. The greatest saving potential is achieved by vehicles that have to stop and start frequently, such as city buses, refuse trucks, medium-sized delivery and off-road vehicles, as well as other large vehicles. In order to develop an optimum hybrid solution for these utility vehicles, development engineers at Eaton created exact motion profiles of customer vehicles. Using this data it was possible for Eaton to develop several different hybrid drive concepts: a hybrid electric, a plug-in hybrid electric, and a hybrid hydraulic drive. Hybrid electric system Hybrid electric drive systems have shown themselves to be ideal for vehicles with superstructures such as a crane, which is normally driven by the idling combustion engine via a hydraulic system. Switching off the engine when the vehicle is at a standstill is one of the best ways to reduce both fuel consumption and system emissions equally. As soon as the auxiliary power is almost used up, the engine is automatically restarted to recharge the system accumulators in less than five minutes.

Plug-in hybrid electric system Whilst the system accumulators of hybrid electric systems can only be charged using brake operations or via the diesel engine, the vehicles with a charging device – the so-called plug-in hybrid electric system – make it possible to charge the vehicle batteries at a charging station (EV Quick Charger). Hybrid hydraulic system Eaton has developed hybrid hydraulic applications specially for frequent starting and stopping in order to meet the requirements of the different truck sectors. The system monitors and stores brake energy of the vehicle and then use it for acceleration. Eaton calls its hybrid hydraulic technology Hydraulic Launch Assist™ or HLA®, which consists of a “parallel” hybrid system as it supplements the conventional powertrain in order to reduce fuel consumption. On a refuse truck, that stops and then continues travelling every 25 or 30 meters, the HLA system basically recycles a major part of the brake energy and thus reduces the fuel consumption of the engine. In addition to this, the lifespan of the brakes has more than doubled thanks to the regeneration of the brake power, and the vehicle can make up to 50 additional stops in one shift. All this increases the viability for the vehicle fleet owner. Eaton hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) for Solaris city buses Eaton presented its hybrid electric system for the “Urbino 12 city” bus from Solaris for the first time at this year’s Busworld trade fair in Kortrijk, Belgium. Solaris Bus & Coach is one of Europe’s leading bus manufacturers, producing a wide range of city, intercity and trolley buses as well as buses for special applications. Energy saving and the reduction of CO² emissions are the constant focus of the company. In collaboration with Solaris, Eaton developed a hybrid drive system for buses up to 12 meters in length, saving fuel and reducing emissions. Eaton’s hybrid drive system combines a 6.7-litre Cummins diesel engine (rated at 162 kilowatt / 220 HP) with an electric motor that has a peak power output of 44 kW (60 HP). The system is matched to an automated six-speed Eaton transmission and stores energy in four lithium-ion batteries that are mounted under the seats. The Solaris Urbino 12 hybrid bus is also fitted with a stop-start technology. Eaton’s parallel hybrid system reduces fuel consumption by up to 35 percent, as well as emissions and noise. It has already been tested worldwide on more than 32 million kilometers. Eaton hybrid drive systems also increase the lifespan of the brakes and shorten the idle times of the combustion engine by up to 87 percent. Different cities in Europe and Asia have already been using Eaton hybrid systems in their city bus fleets. This includes the buses of BCI, Foton, Heng Tong, JNP, King Long, Shen Long, Solaris, Yutong and Zhongtong in the bus sector. Companies such as DHL, FedEx, UPS, Coca-Cola Enterprises, PepsiCo and Wal-Mart are using delivery vehicles with Eaton hybrid systems. In addition to this, the transporters of many service and telecommunications companies in North America rely on Eaton hybrid drive systems. Some of Eaton’s customers in the utility vehicle sector include Daimler, Iveco/ Fiat, DAF/ Leyland, Freightliner, Ford, International, Kenworth and Peterbilt. In collaboration with all these customers and over a period of ten years, Eaton has documented the drive performance of over 2400 delivery vehicles, buses and other utility vehicles that are fitted worldwide with Eaton hybrid systems. In all, over 50 million kilometers have been driven with Eaton hybrid systems and around 4.5. million liters of fuel and 12,000 tons of CO² have been saved.

Circuit-Breakers for Non-Motor Loads
PKZM4 up to 32 A for the North American Market
The export of electrical equipment for machines and plants often proves to be a very difficult undertaking for European manufacturers, particularly with exports to North America. This is due to the many legal and safety-related requirements such as those of the NEC or CEC. For example, UL508 forbids the use in North America of motor-protective circuit-breakers for the protection of cables and conductors, or for the short-circuit protection of frequency inverters. The brochure provides comprehensive background information on these issues and shows the benefits of using the new PKZM4-…-CB circuit-breaker as the solution.
