According to George Boloutis, automation systems manager at Gordyn & Palmer, “Working together with Rockwell Automation we came up with a solution that helped us put every motor in the plant on the Ethernet network, which simplified the whole process.”
“Using Ethernet simplified everything including the design and installation and provided a much neater switchboard. Rockwell Automation is the only supplier that could deliver a completely integrated solution,” explained Boloutis.
Working closely with NHP Electrical Engineering Products, the distributor for Rockwell Automation, Gordyn & Palmer were the first in Australia to use the new E300 Electronic Overload Relay.
“Being one of the early adopters of the E300s proved to be a valuable investment in consideration of the benefits that it would bring to the project. Gordyn & Palmer continue to be on the forefront of the latest technologies to help their customers maximise throughput with minimal downtime,” explained Nasser Hojok, automation sales supervisor at NHP.
The E300 relays are the next generation of electronic overloads and feature a modular design, communications options, diagnostic information, simplified wiring and integration into Logix, which makes it the ideal overload for this application.
