The increasing demand for electrical energy to sustain global development requires consistent heavy investments in power supply generation. However, in addition to complex medium and long-term planning, these investments rely on natural resources, which are becoming depleted due to constant pressures upon the environment. The best strategy to maintain energy supply in the short term is to avoid wastage and increase energy efficiency. Electric motors play a major role in this strategy, since around 40% of global energy demand is estimated to be related to electric motor applications. Consequently, any initiatives to increase energy efficient, by using high efficiency electric motors and frequency inverters, are to be welcomed, as they can make a real contribution to reductions in global energy demand.
Power quality problems can disrupt production, damage equipment and corrupt valuable data. The IP67 SCP-X power supplies from CBT partner, Sola HD, provide the versatility and cost-efficiency to deliver reliable distributed and remote field power to machine controls.
