Success stories: Residual current devices in industrial switches

Reconectadores diferenciales

One of the leading companies in the field of electromechanical engineering, with a track record of over 60 years in design, manufacturing and sales, had a large alternating current residual current device.

With the objective of minimizing the cost of a component of the circuit board, they considered reducing its size and modifying it so that it would use direct current. To accomplish this, they decided to rely on CLR, who studied their case and offered them a reliable and cost-effective solution.

Solar panel orientation mechanism

Orientación placas solares

The sun is one of the most valuable treasures Earth has, which is why it is becoming increasingly common for countries to take advantage of the benefits provided by technology and install solar panels with the purpose of obtaining clean, renewable energy.

Installing a solar panel is not enough to guarantee maximum performance; a decisive factor in regard to efficiency when obtaining photovoltaic energy is the installation of a solar tracker on the panel.

Would you like to know more about photovoltaic installations and the orientation of solar panels? Keep reading!

Automatic doors: speed reducers for motion control and precision

Automatic doors

The use and application of automatic doors is increasingly common beyond shopping malls, hospitals and large office spaces. The complex systems for door automation require great control and precision, which is why the selection of the speed reducer should involve a very precise study. In this article we will delve into the operators and actuators in charge of the optimal operation of an automatic door, as well as the role of speed reducers or actuators for driving the doors’ system and motion control. Let’s begin.
