Standardized digital SCR power supply cabinet solution, designed to replace VRT and analog SCR power supplies
With traditional analog power supplies, CapEx and OpEx costs are high, and workpiece yield and quality are uncertain. Installing an EPower™ advanced SCR based power supply cabinet solution can offer significant cost savings and efficiency improvements, compared to legacy analog designs.
At control outputs below 100%, analog SCRs (silicon controlled rectifiers) cause high harmonic distortion on the power supply and a poor power factor, as well as a significant decline in energy efficiency
Due to poor power factor, energy is wasted in the system, leading to unnecessary extra costs for filters and capacitor banks
Analog SCRs cause difficulties in the control of the furnace heaters. Temperature stability and accuracy cannot be achieved causing process repeatability issues
The challenges of analog SCR power supplies also apply.
Eurotherm EPower controller based solutions offer improved reliability and efficiency compared to legacy analog designs, helping to reduce maintenance and energy costs in a standardized design.
The power supply solution driven by an EPower advanced SCR controller is available in fourr standard sizes up to 400A to cover a wide range of furnaces, with customization available on request.
