Voltage sags, momentary loss of power and transients can all cause robotic lines to malfunction and damage your electronic equipment.
Automated warehouse reclaimers use variable frequency drives to control the speed of each robotic reclaimer. The PLC controls and VFD electronics are sensitive to electrical power quality anomalies in the network.
These are some of the typical issues:
Voltage sags are the primary cause of unplanned production stoppages in industry. Causes include electrical network faults due to weather, animals across terminals, traffic accidents, load switching upstream, startup of large loads or transformer energization.
A sudden change from the nominal voltage or current may be caused by faults in the network, switching of large loads, load shedding, or switching of capacitor banks upstream in the utility network. Voltage surges also occur but may be less severe.
Momentary power loss is complete loss of voltage on one or more phase conductors between 0.5 cycles and 3 seconds. The most common forms of power failure are due to utility protection systems, e.g. recloser operations, switching, breaker tripping and equipment failures.
The use of non-linear loads is the main cause of harmonic distortion. The injection of harmonic currents results in voltage distortion which may cause electronic equipment failure, increased heat in drives and transformers, unwanted tripping, malfunction of sensitive equipment and controls and failure of imaging and scanning equipment.

Benefits derived from Omniverter solutions:
Robotic and automation controls is highly sensitive to voltage regulation and sag phenomena.
The Active voltage conditioner (AVC) is an inverter-based system that protects sensitive industrial and commercial loads from voltage disturbances. It provides fast, accurate voltage sag correction plus continuous voltage regulation and load voltage compensation. The AVC do not use any additional storage to correct sags.
The AVCRTS is an enhanced version of the Active Voltage Conditioner. It uses energy storage to allow the system to ride through momentary outages. The AVCRTS has a large overload capacity and allow for dynamic loads and can operate in a high harmonic environment. Most commercial UPS technologies are not designed for dynamic load applications.
