Circuit overload is one of the most common reasons that circuit breakers trip. Tripping brings production lines to an abrupt halt translating into machinery breakdown, lost production time, material defects and waste. Because of this, preventing circuit tripping by dynamically shedding noncritical loads is of primary importance. Installing an RM8 module with a PQube® 3 or PQube 3e prevents critical load circuits against tripping in order to keep production up and running.
An RM8 module with its 8 fully programmable relay outputs costs $350. It turns a PQube power analyzer into a powerful controller that signals contactors to shut down discretionary loads to protect critical circuit branches. Plus, the PQube also simultaneously monitors consumption and power quality on up to 14 load channels. This automated monitoring troubleshoots, isolates the cause of power quality disturbances in real-time, and prevents circuit trips by providing actionable visibility of load consumption and long-term trend data.
