WEG's new automation range leads the way to
efficiency and reliability at SPS IPC Drives 2016

WEG, a leading global manufacturer of motor and drive technology, showcased its latest automation technology at this year's SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany, during November 2016. Highlights at WEG's booth included new soft starters, medium-voltage variable speed drives (VSDs) and compact circuit breakers that are designed to deliver increased uptime and efficiency to a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.

"WEG is committed to increasing the reliability and efficiency of electric motor-driven systems (EMDS) and we have developed our automation range to support a larger section of the European market across industrial and commercial applications," says Johannes Schwenger, Head of Product Management Low and Medium Voltage Drive Systems Europe at WEG. "Over the last few years we have been investing in our automation offering to better support our customers, and we are proud that WEG has grown into a global provider of drive technology with a full-spectrum automation portfolio."
WEG's new SSW900 compact soft starters are high-performance top-end devices with integrated PLCs that provide fully programmable algorithms for regulating induction motors. They feature an integrated bypass contactor for longer service life, optimal space utilisation and lower heat dissipation in the switchgear cabinet.

The new MVW3000 VSDs have been designed to meet a growing demand for medium-voltage devices in Europe. They are built with multilevel technology and cascaded H bridges (CHB) to enable users to achieve medium-voltage levels simply by using standard cost-effective low-voltage components (diodes, IGBTs and plastic film capacitors).
WEG is also expanding its DWB series of compact molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs) with three additional case sizes for output currents from 800 A to 1,600 A.  The circuit breakers provide flexible, cost-effective and reliable protection for power distribution systems as well as for motors and generators in commercial and industrial applications, particularly in panel building.
