Smart motor protection plug
The NOLTA motor protection plugs offer optimum engine protection against thermal overload. The magnetic quick release ensures fast and safe shutdown. This prevents damage to the connected machine.
The Microtronics technology was integrated into the NOLTA contactor combination. This records the detected faults and reasons for tripping the motor protection. These operating data are transmitted to the central server via GSM and can be retrieved by the users at any time via the NOLTAnet app.
In addition, a GPS sensor determines the position. This provided theft protection enables the customer to always knows where his machines are located. Geofence triggers an alarm when leaving a defined radius.
As an additional service, the operation hours of the connected pump or compressor are recorded. The automatic, integrated operating hours counter is an attractive service with high added value for the operators of the pump.
The NOLTAnet app combines all this information clearly. Push messages inform immediately in case of problems, which minimizes the reaction speed in case of failure.
The technology from Microtronics
The smart motor protection project relied on the technology of a rapidM2M M220 module. Due to the available space, a separate board was designed on which all required components of the rapidM2M M220 were integrated.
This procedure leads to the fact that the specially developed board exactly meets the requirements of NOLTA. Since the board only contains components that are actually relevant and required for intelligent motor protection, this is an advantage when rolling out a large number of units. This is an attractive variant not only in terms of price. After all, every additional component has an effect on the costs and must be tested.
In the project of the smart motor protection, NOLTA has invested many of its own resources in the development and adaptation of the script. With training courses, a knowledge base around the programming of the rapidM2M modules was built up internally.
