This year Europe's leading trade fair for electric automation technology is celebrating it's 25th anniversary. REO will of course be there and we will be exhibiting our latest product innovations and complete system solutions. Come along and visit us in our usual place Hall 1, Stand 660 between the 25th and 27th November 2014.
The market for a variable-speed drive (VSD) based motor control is growing rapidly. A result of increasing global consumption, rising electricity prices and frantic infrastructure development in newly industrialized countries (NICs), the global market is expected to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4 per cent from 2014, reaching a total value of $ 22.7 billion by 2019. Underlying this trend is a concerted effort by leading VSD manufacturers, such as UK based Invertek drives , to undergo collaborative development for further product innovation.
Power quality expert, REO UK, has announced today a new partnership with drives specialist Invertek, to supply the company with a range of EMC and harmonic filters. In compliance with EU directives on "adjustable speed electric power drive systems", the new equipment is tested for use in various environments and with a number of different operating variables. This eliminates many common electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI / RFI) issues, which are increasingly becoming a focus for installers and site operators.
Electrical design engineers and purchasing teams will now be able to access information more easily, thanks to power quality specialist REO UK, which has launched a new website. The redesign focuses on the visual clarity of information as well as streamlining the method of online checkout. Other new features include a restructured product portfolio and easily accessible download content. To top it off, an intuitive navigation aids usability by guiding users through a step-by-step process of search, select, checkout and after sales support.
With over 40 exhibition halls and more than 2000 Exhibitors, InnoTrans has become established as an international industry showplace focusing on Railway Technology.
InnoTrans opens its doors for the 10th time in Berlin on 23-26th September
Industry 4.0 is a big concept and a hugely popular buzzword across manufacturing. It originated at the Hanover Messe a couple of years ago, when Siemens defined it as the computerization of manufacturing, including transition to higher levels of interconnectivity, smarter plants and communication between equipment.
Bowman Power claims that a 10% increase in energy efficiency can be achieved with its new advanced exhaust energy recovery system when used with diesel electricity generators. The company says this increase in efficiency offers significant financial benefits for those receiving incentives from governments to generate electricity to be fed into national power grids using biofuels and also remote generating stations by reducing fuel requirements.
To ensure that its pumps satisfy customer performance demands, ABS Production Wexford Ltd puts its pumps through vigorous testing procedures to verify specified performance criteria to meet international requirements. This enables the company to issue an appropriate performance compliance certificate. Tests previously performed manually are now automated resulting in a three fold increase in through put. Helping to achieve this is a variable voltage transformer from REO (UK).
The electric vehicle took a significant evolutionary step forward when REO UK launched its REOHM BWD330, a high voltage recuperation heater, recently. The D330 brings significant efficiency improvements to the vehicle thermal management systems used in electric vehicles. Its launch comes at a time when the market for clean energy vehicles continues to expand amidst supportive legislation and improving infrastructure.
Tim Cooke, an electric braking expert from wound components manufacturer REO, is set to speak at the NMI Power Electronics event on July 2 in Nottingham. The event entitled 'Power Conversion for More Electric Transport' will take place in the National College at the University of Nottingham and Tim's presentation will be entitled 'Braking Challenges in Electric Vehicles'.
