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.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
