REVO PB series

The compact multizone REVO PB combines 3 independent 1 phase power controllers, with power synchronization between 3 phases and peak power limiting in 1 unit. This keeps the power within the limits of your energy contract.  

Up to 3 units can be interconnected in a power network, resulting in a system of maximum 9 individual power channels with power balancing/optimization.

  • power factor close to 1:  prevent harmonics
  • avoid power peaks: prevent fine of energy company
  • avoid unnessesary stress on electronic components, increase machine uptime.

Power network quality

The insertion of unsynchronized loads on the power line can cause disturbances, such as:

  • fluctuations in the mains voltage (flickering)
  • overheated power cables.
  • high frequency noise

With the special power control algorithm harmonic components are significally reduced.

Optimization of energy costs

Thanks to its control strategy and distribution of the required power management in multizone loads, the REVO PB keeps the power factor value close to 1.

A low power factor, high frequency waveform distortion and increase in harmonic components lead to an increase of the costs of consumed energy.

With the power optimization algorithm in the REVO PB, a reduction of energy costs is obtained.
