Highly scalable: EtherCAT Terminals for energy management

19.06.2018

Energy management in the machine environment and in the power industry makes the most diverse demands, from pure grid monitoring and process control through to high-end power monitoring. Beckhoff has expanded the EtherCAT I/O system by four new energy management terminals and now provides a comprehensive range of EtherCAT Terminals that are highly scalable in terms of both price and performance.

In this webinar Dr. Fabian Assion, Product Manager I/O, presents the available individual components and provides hints on choosing the right solution on the basis of practical application examples

EL3453

The EL3453 EtherCAT power measurement terminal is an advancement based on the EL3413. With up to 690 V AC, the voltage inputs are optimised for the direct monitoring of high-capacity generators, as in the wind power industry, for example. No upstream voltage transformer is required. The four current inputs are electrically isolated so that the terminal can be used in all common grounded current transformer configurations such as 2- or 3-transformer configurations with star or delta connection incl. neutral conductor current measurement. The EL3453 can be used for simple grid analysis up to the 63rd harmonics analysis. Alternatively, all readings can be combined in a power quality factor for simplified diagnostics. Like all measured terminal data, the harmonic content can be read via the process data. The EL3453 offers the “ExtendedRange” feature enabling the use of the full technical measuring range, which equals 130 % of the specified nominal measuring range.

EL3423

The EL3423 EtherCAT Terminal enables the measurement of relevant data for an efficient energy management system. The voltage is measured internally via direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The current of the three phases L1, L2 and L3 is fed via simple current transformers. The measured energy values are available separately as generated and accepted values. In the EL3423 Terminal, the effective power and the energy consumption for each phase are calculated. In addition, an internally calculated network quality factor provides information about the quality of the monitored voltage supply. The EL3423 offers basic functionality for mains analysis and energy management.

EL3483

The EL3483 EtherCAT Terminal enables the monitoring of relevant electrical data of the supply network. The voltage is measured internally via direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The internal measured values are compared with threshold values preset by the user. The result is available as digital information in the process image. The EL3483 checks for the correct phase order L1, L2, L3, phase failure, undervoltage and overvoltage, and possible phase asymmetry. An error bit is set in the case of an incorrect phase order or the failure of a phase. Should, for example, an asymmetry or voltage error occur, only a warning bit is set initially. In addition, an internally calculated mains quality factor provides information about the quality of the monitored voltage supply. The EL3483 offers basic functionality for mains monitoring and analysis.

EL3443

The EL3443 EtherCAT Terminal enables the measurement of all relevant electrical data of the supply network and carries out simple pre-evaluation. The voltage is measured via direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The current of the three phases L1, L2 and L3 is fed via simple current transformers. All measured currents and voltages are available as root-mean-square values. In the EL3443 terminal, the effective power and energy consumption for each phase are calculated. The RMS values of voltage U and current I as well as the active power P, apparent power S, reactive power Q, frequency f, phase shift angle cos φ and harmonic are available. The EL3443 offers extended functionality for mains analysis and energy management.

EL3773

The EL3773 and EL3783 power monitoring terminals are designed for state monitoring of 3-phase AC voltage systems. For each phase voltages and currents are sampled as instantaneous values with a resolution of 16 bits:

EL3783

The EL3783 EtherCAT Terminal is a power monitoring I/O terminal used for state monitoring of a 3-phase AC voltage system. For each phase, voltage up to 400/690 Vrms and current up to 1 Arms/5 Arms are sampled as instantaneous values with a resolution of 16 bits. The six channels are measured simultaneously based on the EtherCAT oversampling principle with a temporal resolution of up to 50 µs and then passed on to the control system. The control system has sufficient computing power for true RMS or performance calculations and complex custom algorithms based on the measured voltages and currents. Through the oversampling principle, the terminal is able to measure at significantly shorter intervals than the cycle time of the control system. AC and DC parameters must be connected and measured with a common reference potential.

EL3403

The EL3403 EtherCAT Terminal enables the measurement of all relevant electrical data of the supply network. The voltage is measured via the direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The current of the three phases L1, L2 and L3 is fed via simple current transformers. All measured currents and voltages are available as root-mean-square values. In the EL3403 version, the effective power and the energy consumption for each phase are calculated. The root-mean-square value of voltage U, current I and the effective power P, apparent power S, reactive power Q, frequency F and phase shift angle cos φ can be derived. The EL3403 provides a comprehensive network analysis and an energy management option.

EL3413

The EL3413 EtherCAT power measurement terminal is a further development of the EL3403. With up to 690 V AC the voltage inputs are optimised for direct monitoring of high-performance generators, as used in the wind power industry, for example. No upstream voltage transformer is required. The current inputs are galvanically isolated so that the terminal can be used in all common grounded current transformer configurations such as 2- or 3-transformer configurations with star or delta connection. The EL3413 can deal with simple network analysis up to the 21st harmonic analysis. Like all measured terminal data, the harmonic content can be read via the process data.

EL3433

The EL3433 EtherCAT power measurement terminal is a further development of the EL3403. Currents of up to 10 A can be directly measured with the internal current transformers. This way, there are no additional costs for external current transformers. The external bridges 5 & 1', 6 & 2' and 7 & 3' are already pre-wired. As a result, it is possible to directly connect the supply voltage (5', 6' and 7') and the consumer (1, 2 and 3). The EL3433 can deal with simple grid analysis up to the 21st harmonic analysis. Like all measured terminal data, the harmonic content can be read via the process data.

EL3446

The EL3446 EtherCAT Terminal enables the measurement of all relevant electrical data of the supply network and carries out simple pre-evaluation. Since the EL3446 itself has no voltage inputs, the voltage measured values are transmitted via EtherCAT by an EL3443 to be installed once per network. The current of up to six phases is fed via simple current transformers. All measured currents and voltages are available as root-mean-square values. In the EL3446 terminal, the effective power and energy consumption for each phase are calculated. The RMS values of voltage U and current I as well as the active power P, apparent power S, reactive power Q, frequency f, phase shift angle cos φ and harmonic are available. The EL3446 offers extended functionality for mains analysis and energy management.

EL3483-0060

The EL3483-0060 EtherCAT Terminal enables the monitoring of relevant electrical data of the supply network. The voltage is measured internally via direct connection of L1, L2, L3 and N. The internal measured values are compared with threshold values preset by the user. The result is available as digital information in the process image. The EL3483-0060 checks for the correct phase order L1, L2, L3, phase failure, undervoltage and overvoltage, and possible phase asymmetry. An error bit is set in the case of an incorrect phase order or the failure of a phase. Should, for example, an asymmetry or voltage error occur, only a warning bit is set initially. In addition, an internally calculated mains quality factor provides information about the quality of the monitored voltage supply. The EL3483-0060 offers basic functionality for mains monitoring and analysis. In addition, the -0060 version also outputs current RMS values of the voltage in the process image.
