Crydom DRML1 Load Monitoring Module Now Available for NOVA22 Solid State Relays

clogo.jpg

DRML1, Crydom’s Load Monitoring Module designed to detect partial or total load failure
 of up to 8 loads and 50 Amps

Crydom introduces the DRML1 Load Monitoring Module, specially designed for NOVA22 solid-state relays which allows to monitor up to 8 heating elements, with similar current value, for a total current ranging from 1.2 Amps up to 50 Amps.

drml1

The DRML1 module measures the current value and compares it against a pre-set value (Teach value), which is stored during installation. Normal operation is monitored and failures are detected. An alarm is activated when the module detects undercurrents in the heating circuit below -12.5% of the nominal current. The module allows also for other alarm conditions to be detected such as: overcurrent condition (when the current exceeds the maximum of +12.5% of the nominal current), blown fuses (open load), damaged (short circuited SCR) and interrupted SSR, as well as those in half-wave operation. The nominal current value (Teach value) is set by the operator either with the “Teach-In” push button, placed on the front, or with the external “Teach-In” input.

The new DRML1 Load Monitoring Module offers three unique features in the market. It allows the user to select the maximum current value of 20 Amps or 50 Amps, operates with a minimum partial load detectable value of 150 mA and includes an adjustable alarm response delay (0.1 sec, 1 sec or 5 sec), selectable via a parameter selector switch. This avoids fault messages generated by voltage drops.

Malfunctions are indicated by a multicolor LED and can be localized systematically thanks to the alarm output which allows up to 128 DRML1 modules to be connected to a collective alarm. The LED indicates when power is ON and also when the Teach-In function is activated (Blue), when the input signal is ON (Green) and when an alarm condition is activated (Red).

The DRML1 is designed for direct installation on NOVA22 Solid State Relays contactor configuration versions (both Panel Mount PM22 Series and DIN Rail Mount DR22 Series models). The plastic enclosure provides IP20 level protection.

DRML1 can be used in different applications but its key advantages make it ideal for quality supervision of plastic parts production in injection molding machines, thermoforming machines and rubber parts production.

Main features include:
–  Up to 8 loads can be monitored
–  Selectable max current rating: 20 Amps or 50 Amps
–  Selectable alarm delay (0.1 sec, 1 sec, 5 sec)
–  Minimum current for single load: 150 mA
–  Alarms detected: undercurrent, overcurrent, open mains voltage, SSR fault
–  Alarm output: PNP open collector, 6-28 VDC, 100 mA
–  Up to 128 modules can be connected in parallel
–  Operating temperature: -25°C to +70°C
–  Pluggable module for both DIN Rail and Panel Mount NOVA22 SSRs
–  Multicolor LED with input status and alarm indication

Crydom’s DRML1 Module is C-UL-US Recognized and compliant to IEC 61000-4 (EMC) and IEC 60068-2 (Shock and Vibration) requirements. It’s also CE compliant to the Low Voltage Directive as well as the RoHS Directive.

While the DRC series was intended for motor applications, the DRH Series, thanks to the enhanced power of 20 Amps on each channel, is intended to switch any resistive as well as inductive loads; it is the perfect solution in any heating application in market segments such as Plastic, Packaging, HVAC, Food & Beverage, Printing and Medical. This product is an ideal replacement of electromechanical contactors when higher reliability is needed or when fast cycling is frequent. Their compact size and easy installation make these devices an optimum solution in commercial and industrial applications (e.g. industrial band heaters), especially when retrofitting. Reliable operation is ensured by means of the integrated over-voltage protection, over-temperature protection, high I2t and surge current ratings and immunity conformance to industrial standards.

Main features include:
– Rating up to 600 VAC, 18 A (3 controlled legs), 20 A (2 controlled legs)
– Integrated over-voltage protection
– Integrated over-temperature protection
– Alarm output in case of over-temperature
– Enclosed heat sink eliminates the need for protective earth connection
– 4-32 VDC or 90-280 VAC control input
– Multicolor LED with input status and alarm indication
– UL 100 kA Short Circuit Current Rating
– C-UL-US listed, CE compliant

These features make the DRH Series unique in the market with a broader working temperature range (-10ºC to +70ºC), better resistance to surge current (716 Amps), higher resistance to short circuit (2560 A2sec), smaller size and a greater life span (50 million cycles).

All these premium features are included in both available DRH models:
– DRH3P60x18x, Solid State Contactor 3 controlled legs, 18 Amps @40°C
