Energy Savings for Automation

Automation systems have the capacity to consume tremendous volumes of energy if not properly engineered from the beginning. The following examples list common applications where energy efficiencies and related cost savings can be realized:
� Intelligent system control where individual conveyor lines are activated only when product is sensed.
� Variable speed drives to ramp up production to avoid energy spikes.
� Energy efficient motors and transformers correctly sized to match the intended process (not over-specified).
� Cooling and air handling system optimization.
� Lighting retrofits to newer energy saving technologies.
� Forklift / similar equipment recharging during off hours.
� Replacement of worn or obsolete motors.
