Energy Saving Motor Controllers

Integra can save up to 40% of your motor running costs

Intelligent fixed speed motor control

Cruise control on a car will intelligently adjust the amount of power being produced by the engine in order to maintain a fixed speed. Integra can do the same for your motors and save 10% – 40%. It achieves this by converting the motor into its own load sensor to ensure that it uses the exact amount of energy required to do the job of work at any instant in time, no more – no less!

In effect Integra ensures that the motor runs at optimum efficiency throughout the load cycle by constantly monitoring and controlling torque. This means that the full load capability of the motor is never compromised. The motor can still draw full power when required in 50th of a second but at partial loads, particularly below 50%, significant savings can be achieved. Integra is perfect for fixed speed applications with variable loads because the exact synchronous speed of motor is maintained at all times.

Additional Benefits
  • Increased contactor life & drive train components.
  • Preventing dips in supply when starting larger motors.
  • Allowing you to attach more equipment to a single supply.
  • Reducing the worrying threat of peak demand penalties.
  • Smooth acceleration without the torque transients.
  • Improved power factor at all load cycles means reduction in kVA.
  • Reduces the KVA KW and KVAR as well as in creasing the PF through the loading cycle.

Right now, motors may account for up to 65% of your energy bill

Actually, it could be a lot more. For example, if you operate a Sugar Mill, it’s more like 82%.

Can anything be done to reduce your Motor running costs?

Yes, by solving two problems inherent to the design of AC induction motors.

Integra Is The Solution

The Problem

The loading on a motor through the typical duty cycle will usually fluctuate dramatically, ranging from 0-100%. While there is a measure of reactance within the motor windings it is widely accepted that the humble AC induction motor has no way of intelligently adjusting the amount of power it consumes in relation to the job of work it does. The problem is exacerbated by that fact that motors are typically sized for a worst-case scenario that they will rarely, if ever, encounter.

The Solution

Cruise control on a car will intelligently adjust the amount of power being produced by the engine in order to maintain a fixed speed. Integra can do the same for your motors and save up to 40%. It achieves this by converting the motor into its own load sensor to ensure that it uses the exact amount of energy required to do the job of work at any instant in time, no more – no less.

In eect Integra electronically ‘re-sizes’ the motor to both its application and load cycle every 10 milliseconds. Integra is perfect for fixed speed applications because motor rpm is maintained at all times.

Starting Your Motors Can Be Costly

The Problem

When starting direct on-line, an AC Induction motor can draw 6-9 times normal full load current. This can trigger peak demand penalties from the utility company, increasing the tari! for the entire billing period. It can also translate to an up to 300% increase in shock load transferred to the mechanical transmission systems resulting in premature mechanical failure and the associated repair or replacement costs. Star Delta starting o!ers only very modest improvements.

The Solution

Integra provides a smooth, step-less acceleration (soft start) of your motors. This dramatically reduces wear and tear on your system and helps you to avoid peak demand penalties. With a controlled start in place your motors can now be switched o! without the fear of re-starting and Integra can be configured to perform this function automatically. Auto Switch O! delivers 100% energy savings..

Smart Motors Equal Smart Savings

Energy Savings

Save up to 40% on something that could be responsible for 66% of your energy bill, or more.

Controlled Starting

Soft start reduces wear and tear, extend equipment life and makes it easier to switch motors off – a 100% saving
