Thyro S Power Controller

AE Thyro S

As a connection-ready thyristor switch with secure operational behavior and load monitoring, the Thyro-S (SCR) power controller switches electric loads, for example, current, voltage, or power. It can be connected to bus systems, used instand-alone operation, or used in combination with all established 2-point process controllers, PLCs, or computer systems. With simple mounting, quick commissioning, and easy operation, the Thyro-S series can be integrated easly into a wide range of applications.

Up to 140 kVA / 500 V / 280 A

Thyro A Power Controller

AE Thyro A

Thyro-A is a plug-and-play digital thyristor controller with the following operating modes: full-wave cycle principle (TAKT), phase-control principle (VAR), and Quick-Takt-Mode (QTM, for 1 phase devices). Product features include an integrated semiconductor fuse, bus interface, and optional power regulation, as well as many monitoring functions and a mains load optimizing feature (via Thyro-Power Manager or directly in QTM operation mode). It can be operated as a stand-alone system or in combination with process controls, PLC, or automation systems via various bus interfaces (PROFIBUS, PROFINET, CANopen, DeviceNet, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, and EtherNet/IP).

Thyro AX Power Controller

AE Thyro AX

The Thyro-AX series supports voltages from 24 to 600 V and offers a unique product scope from 16 to 1500 A, available as single, dual, and three-phase units. With a flexible connection technology, the power controller can be connected from below and/or from above. The full graphic touch display allows a high level of intuitive unit operation. Set points and actual points, as well as operating modes and more, are shown in plain text. Operating modes are signalized via changing background lighting. Many communication protocols are available such as DeviceNet, Modbus RTU, PROFIBUS, and CANopen, as well as TCP/IP based communication including PROFINET, Modbus TCP, and EtherNet/IP. The series also includes technology to compensate for system perturbations and to optimize the network load to reduce costs.

Thyro P Power Controller

AE Thyro P

A communication-enabled digital controller, the Thyro-P thyristor power controller accurately controls and regulates currents, voltages, and power. With several operating modes and regulating and recording functions, this power controller has paved the way for the future providing a wide range of applications in the field of thermo-processing technology.
