PROTECTED RIGHT FROM THE START

The benefits of Sealless, Mag Drive pumps are well-known and respected. However, the reality is that system upsets occur and pumps are run dry. Whereas a conventional pump can tolerate this, most Mag Drive pumps cannot. Failure to protect the pump will almost certainly result in significant repair or replacement costs...

 

After more than 25 years of protecting Mag Drive pumps from run dry conditions, our renowned M20 Shaft Power Monitor now has a 'Big Brother'. With far greater functionality, our TSA-Plus not only incorporates the benefits of the M20, but also introduces an array of additional, unique features that are not available from any other product. Features such as complete motor control with soft starting and supply monitoring will greatly reduce the life cycle costs of these types of pumps.

The TSA-Plus is a fully assembled solution with so many standard features that it's hard to imagine how so much could cost so little!

 

eliminate dry run failure

Replacing bearings, magnets and containment shells can be very expensive. The damage can often be so severe that a complete replacement pump may be required.

A feature of the TSA-Plus is its patented Shaft Power Monitoring technology. The pump's working load is constantly monitored and compared to protection parameters. An abnormal condition, such as dry-running, will cause a drop in shaft power and the TSA-Plus will automatically shut the pump down - before damage occurs.

Above: Damaged magnets and containment shells are typically seen when a pump continues to operate in a dry-running condition. The H2flow TSA-Plus works as a safeguard against such failures.


smooth starts reduce mechanical stress

Adjusting the motor torque is best done by controlling the current in all three phases. 3-phase control offers symmetrical and balanced currents without the drawbacks of additional energy losses, noise and vibration normally connected with 2-phase Soft Starters.

Emotron TSA-Plus incorporates 3-phase control together with sophisticated algorithms for torque control. Conventional Soft Starters use a pre-defined voltage ramp to control the start. With the H2flow TSA-Plus, the actual motor torque is continuously calculated and controlled according to the application requirements. This torque control ensures an ultra-smooth start with constant acceleration and a further 30% reduction in starting current. The smooth starts also lead to less mechanical stress, improved process control and reduced maintenance costs.

Soft Starting a Mag Drive Pump also greatly reduces the risk of magnetic decoupling due to high starting torques and rapid acceleration. Pump OEM's may even consider the possibility of reducing the size / density of the magnets.

THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION

TSA-Plus is a complete package solution for mag-drive pump control and protection. TSA-Plus features advanced pump and motor protection via shaft power monitoring; soft starting capability; Molded Case Circuit Breaker with thru-the-door handle mechanism; user-friendly thru-the-door digital multilingual display; a wide array of communication options; supply monitoring; readouts of pump run time, consumed energy, alarm history, and much more!


Slow speed and jog operations

Apart from ramping up and down the speed between zero and rated motor speed, Emotron TSA Soft Starts offer low speed operation in both forward and reverse direction without additional hardware. Slow speed or jogging forward or backward can be useful for aligning a load or having the motor running at low speeds for test or service purposes. Examples of applications where such low speed or jog operation is valuable are loading/unloading of centrifuges or mixers or positioning of feeding conveyors.

compact dimensions

Emotron TSA Soft Starts are among the smallest in their class. Due to the space-efficient construction and somewhat unique bypass design, a compact and user-friendly footprint has been achieved.

smart stops - smooth or quick

Emotron TSA offers efficient solutions, whether the need is a smooth or a quick stop. A linear stop of a pump eliminates the risk of water hammer. No motor-controlled valves are needed. Built-in braking functionality ensures quick and safe stops of mills and saws without mechanical brakes.

Multilingual control panel with single-function keys and copy function

Designed for global application the Emotron TSA soft starters carry a multilingual display unit as standard. The control panel has an easy-to-use menu system and dedicated menu and start/stop keys.

real time clock and programming blocks

The Emotron TSA Soft Start offers built-in programming blocks, such as logical functions, comparators, SR Flip-Flops, counters and timers. This opens the way for customizing functionality according to your requirements. A Real Time Clock provides information about the actual date and time of the day. The real time information is used for time registration in the event log and to enable pre-programmed starting and stopping at certain date and time.
