15KW Danfoss Drive Used To Ensure Saw Operators Safety

JJ Loughran recently commissioned a 15Kw Danfoss Vacon 100 for a local meat processor. This design allowed start up and immediate stop for saw operator safety. Two simultaneous time limited points of contact had to be selected by the saw operator before the VSD would deliver power to the saw via the operator remote panel, working in conjunction with the VSD’s Safe Torque Off (STO) Card.

The Danfoss VSD also delivers 110VAC saw motor voltage from a 415V input supply, using the incredible functionality of the Danfoss drive. A bespoke braking resistor completed the package allowing the excess kinetic energy of the braking function to be safely taken away from the drive using its inbuilt brake chopper, maximising ramp down time in under 2 seconds.

When it comes to safety & reliability……choose Danfoss.

Did you Know?

JJ Loughran are now stocking and hiring factory built Danfoss Drives up to 400KW, as a result we can drastically cut lead times and get your plant and production lines back into operation in the event of a sudden drive failure.

JJ Loughran onsite engineering team are available to help install this equipment if necessary.  Plus, with a hire drive you can now test new processes or solutions without any significant capital investment or obligation to buy.

We also stock electric motors locally up to 400KW in size to ensure we can offer a full turnkey solution. For sales, support or advice, please contact our friendly team on +44(0)28 867 62295 or email. sales@jjloughran.com
