Delta Automation, Inc. has recently partnered with Invertek to supply, install and service their line of VFDs specifically designed for SINGLE PHASE MOTORS.   This is a very niche, specific market that we here at Delta have been searching to fulfill for sometime. Many of our clients have requested this type of product, and up until now our only solution was to convert the motor to a 3 phase unit and VFD. Depending upon the frame size, this was not always the best possible solution and sometimes, just not possible at all. Now these clients utilizing these smaller motors will be able to reap the benefits of energy savings, energy rebates, mechanical wear and tear, and motor/equipment protection just as the large motor users have enjoyed. Please contact Delta to provide you with more information or a quote!00001

Unusual Application for an IDEC FT1A Touchscreen

A local Virginia facility engineer had an unusual, and mundane task to accomplish. In a newly completed housing building, the living quarters all are equipped with motion or occupancy sensor to increase the overall energy efficiency of the new building. With no motion in a particular room, the lights and HVAC systems are reduced or shut off.  These particular occupancy sensors, illuminate utilizing a green LED when sensing motion. This however, in a darkened room is very bright and disturbed  the occupants.  The engineer found no published method to extinguish the LEDs, so he contacted the manufacturer. The manufacturer explained a procedure to accomplish this task. It was however a cumbersome task, especially when there were over 1100 of these sensors involved. The procedure goes something like this: Press the programming button 20 times, wait 1 second, press the button again 2 times, wait 1 second, press and hold the button 1 second, press the button 20 times. Can you imagine performing this procedure over 1100 times without a mistake?

Fortunately, he was already a user of the IDEC FT1A touch screen for other applications there. He designed and built the “jig” shown in this quick video, to program the occupancy sensors 5 at time, error free every time!

An efficient and fun project!
