A total of 11 units were installed on a large VW Car Manufacturing plant in South Africa, on presses and Hydraulic applications. The Hydraulic applications are used to make car parts and recycle scrap metal.
A Hydraulic pack which is on a machine that makes clamps which connect the pistons to the crank shaft in the Engines, has the timed cut off feature enabled. So the normal energy saving is active but when the hydraulic pack has not been used for a period of 5 min 25 s the Integra unit simply switches the motor off . After pre monitoring the application it was found that the machine was used only 30% of the time but the Hydraulic pack was left running.
