Rockwell Automation Launches Online Energy Calculator

By Chemical Processing Staff

Nov 28, 2011

Rockwell Automation has released a new energy calculator that allows mobile devices or computers to calculate potential savings derived from variable frequency drives to power pumps and fans. The calculator can be accessed online or downloaded as a free mobile application to iPads, iPhones, Blackberries or Android systems.

Part of the Rockwell Automation Intelligent Motor Control portfolio, the tool enables users to compare conventional methods, such as valves for pump control and dampers for fan control, to variable frequency drives and determine the estimated cost savings of installing an Allen-Bradley PowerFlex drive.

Energy consumption can be calculated by entering the minimum pump or flow percentages, annual operating hours, cost per kilowatt and other information about their own factory, or by using sample data provided by Rockwell Automation that is built into the tool.
