Electra Check!  TRC Part Number is AECM20020

Contact Sords Electric HERE!

This compact, easy to use instrument is made with advanced microelectronics and provides accurate testing and monitoring of electrical outlets and systems. Constantly monitors voltage and grequency indications potential inproper polarity and ground wiring.  Its small size and rugged construction allows for convenient installation in an electrical outlet or use as a portable service tool.

Intallation of the AECM20020 Digital Monitor is for use in a standard 120V/a5A outlet.  It is suitable for continuous or occasional use.  The viewing angle of the LCD display is optimized for viewing at a 12:00 viewing position.  Looking directly at or down at the unit while mounted in a low outlet gives the best viewing contrast.
The voltage is measured is RMS which is much more precise that AC average.  RMS metering is the only method tat can accurately measure all AC power sources.  THE RMS voltage and frequency readings are ideal for monitoring modified sine waves, such as solid-state generators, inverters and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) products.
The digital monitor display will alternate between line voltage in RMS and line Frequency in Hertz. The LCD display shows an F in front of the reading to denote frequency.

Voltage range is 85-150 VAC RMS.
Over voltage arm is at 135 VAC RMS
Frequency range is 40 Hz to 80 Hz
Under frequency is 55 Hz
Power rating is 2 watts
Operating current is .02 amps

To be called a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interruptor) the unit needs to trip no higher than 6mA.  Above that the unit becomes an ELCI (Equipment Leakage Circuit Interruptor).

A Ground-fault occurs when there is a break in the low resistance grounding path from a tool or electrical system. The electrical current may then take an alternative path to the ground through the user, resulting in serious injury or death.  The ground-fault circuit interrupter, or GFCI, is a fas acting circuit breaker designed to shut of electric power in the event of a ground fault within as little as 1/40 of a second. It works by comparing the amount of current going to and returning from the equipment along the circuit conductors. When the amount going differs from the amour retuning by approximately 5 milliamperes (4-6mA), the GFCI trips/interrupts the current.

The GFCI is rated to trip quickly enough to prevent an electrical incident.  If it is properly installed and maintained, this will happen as soon as the faulty tool is plugged in.  If the grounding conductor is not intact or of low impedance the GFCI may not trip until a person provides a path.  In this case, the person will receive a shock, but the GFCI should trip so quickly that the shock will not be harmful. The most common type of shock is from the Ground Fault. GFCIs also protect against fires, overheating and wire destruction.

Sords Electric

Una pérdida a tierra ocurre cuando hay una ruptura en el camino de resistencia baja para conexión a tierra de una herramienta o un sistema eléctrico. La corriente eléctrica entonces puede tomar una trayectoria alterna a la tierra a través del trabajador, resultando en lesiones serias o la muerte.
El interruptor para circuitos con pérdida a tierra, o GFCI, es un circuito interruptor de energía de acción rápida diseñado para desconectar la energía eléctrica en caso de una pérdida a tierra en un lapso de 140 de segundo. Esto funciona comparando la cantidad de corriente que sale y que regresa del equipo a lo largo de los conductores de circuito. Cuando la cantidad que sale es diferente de la cantidad que regresa por aproximadamente 5 mili-amperios, el GFCI interrumpe la corriente.
El GFCI está clasificado para desconectar la corriente suficientemente rápido para prevenir un incidente eléctrico. Si es instalado y mantenido correctamente, esto pasará tan pronto como el equipo defectuoso es enchufado. Si el conductor de conexión a tierra no está intacto o es de baja impedancia, el GFCI quizás no funcione hasta que una persona le proporcione una trayectoria. En este caso, la persona recibirá una descarga, pero el GFCI debe activarse tan rápidamente que la descarga no sería mortal o dañina.

    power cycles and operating hours.
  • Detection modes Single point, two point and windows
  • Logic functions: AND, OR, XOR and Gated SR-FF.
  • Analogue output: In IO-Link mode the sensor
    will generate 16 bit analogue process data output representing the distance to the object. 

  • The sensor has multiple detects functions e.g. in single point mode the presence or absence of objects are detected while cutting o the background information.
  • The detection distance is very independent of the colour of the objects to be detected.
  • The “analogue” distance from the sensor to the object is available via the IO-Link communication.

Dynamic Single-Phase Motor Starter from Carlo Gavazzi

Gavazzi Dynamic Motor Starter from Sords Electric

Use our Carlo Gavazzi Parts for to get a quote HERE!

CARLO GAVAZZI has launched the HDMS Series, a single-phase motor soft-starter. It is an ideal solution for systems used in areas with weak power grids. Its unique design and control algorithm eliminate the need for a traditional start capacitor, effectively increasing reliability. This same innovative control strategy allows the HDMS to easily start Capacitor Start / Capacitor Run (CSCR) motors, and in the case of Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC) motors, virtually eliminate the starting current.
This product offers as much as 70% current reduction when compared to Direct On-Line (DOL) starters, which makes the HDMS the perfect choice for applications such as heat pumps, submersible pumps, or other scroll compressor loads connected to generators or electrical inverters. Innovative features include Near Field Communication (NFC), Modbus communication, and ease of use as the HDMS does not require any user settings or adjustments. Features of the HDMS include: 

  •   Single-phase 110 to 230 VAC, 50/60 Hz operating voltage range
  •   Self-learning algorithm continuously adapts to load conditions for motor start           optimization
  •   Broad operational current range: 12, 25, 32, 37 Arms @ 60°C (140°F)
  •   No start capacitor required
  •   Tool-free design for quick, error-free installation
  •   Data downloads via NFC communication with 143
      alarm event storage capacity to expedite troubleshooting

    Real-time data analysis through Modbus communication

    Specialized algorithm for scroll compressors and submersible pumps 
     SCR protected relays for increased lifetime

    2 relay outputs (configurable logic) for Alarm, Top of Ramp

    Integrated Class 10 motor overload protection

    Conformal coated PCBs for additional protection against humidity

    Agency approvals: cULus Listing, CE certification 

    Gavazzi HDMS Motor Starter

    The HDMS is a dynamic motor starter for single phase scroll compressors and submersible pumps.
    Through an innovative control strategy, capacitor Start-Capicitor Run (CSCR), motors, can now be started without a start capacitor. In the case of Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC) motors, the starting current is virtually eliminated.
    All the HDMS PCBs have a conformal coating for higher resistance to harsh environmental conditions.
    The Ramp-Up time is limited to a maximum of 1 second making it an ideal solution for the scroll compressors and submersible pumps.

    The HDMS Series Motor Starters are the best choice for increasing reliability, reducing costs on utility contracts and improving motor operation.
