Energy and CO2 savings at your fingertips
ABB launch new AVP energy toolkit App to show the benefits of VSDs and electric motors
ENERGY, CO2 and money saved, together with an estimated return on investment, are the outputs of a new App from ABB called the AVP energy toolkit, which is designed to show the benefits of using variable-speed drives (VSDs) and electric motors to replace direct-on-line starting.
Within the App, which is available for download through the Apple App Store, users can select their industry and whether they have a pump or fan application, along with their energy cost, motor rating, voltage and operating hours.
The App produces an instant mini-report to show the potential savings that can be realized. The report contains details of a matched ABB motor-drive package and includes the energy savings, in MW hours, that the recommended package can achieve.
Details of the recommended VSDs and/or motors can be sent directly to one of ABB’s authorized providers, if selected by the user. The nearest authorized provider is identified by matching the users’ location details with that of the partner network.
There is also a ‘Find my AVP’ function that allows the nearest ABB authorized provider to be located using the user’s GPS location, allowing an engineer authorized by ABB to be contacted anywhere in the UK.
Using the App, a full quotation and engineers report can be requested and installation and commissioning of the recommended products arranged. Manuals, catalogues and brochures for ABB’s drives, motors and auxiliary equipment range can also be accessed, giving users up-to-date resources and product information.
