The remote monitor is available on the HP50, HP80 and EX-HP Power Units. It monitors the high voltage in the Power Unit to indicate if the static eliminators are working and sends a no volt signal to the PLC of the customer`s machine.
It is designed to give a no-volt signal to show the status of the high voltage output and whether the static control equipment is functioning.
- It is often difficult to know whether static control equipment is working, because it is quiet.
- If there is a fault in the static control equipment it will try to pull more than 5mA from the Power Unit. In this case the safety cut-out in the Power Unit operates and turns off the high voltage.
- In many processes the correct operation of the static control equipment is essential and any fault must be communicated to the operator.
