Eaton launches its SmartWire-Darwin Module for the PKE motor protective circuit breakers, with electronic wide range overload protection. These circuit-breakers measure the current rise via the integrated current transformer in the trip block, and evaluate it via a special electronic circuit which sends a pulse via an actuator system to the switch mechanism. The voltage supply of the electronic circuit is implemented via a transformer. The opening time depends on the ratio of the tripping current to the setting current and is stored in the form of a long-time stable tripping characteristic curve. They operate with a larger current transfer ratio. In this way, the device has a wide current setting range in the ratio 1:4.

This year, the IEN Europe Award for the most innovative product of the past twelve months went to Schaeffler for an online condition monitoring system. In an exclusive Interview, IEN Europe talked with two representatives of the company about the system, the acceptance of condition monitoring in general and further developments in that area that were presented at Hannover Messe 2013. The June issue also features a Special on Control & Automation, including product news, a Statement on recent IT trends in that field, and a Cover Story about combinig the latest RFID with IO-Link technology.
