Menzel Elektromotoren manufactures IP67 low and medium voltage squirrel-cage motors up to size 355. TÜV Süd has recently attested the dust- and waterproof construction according to protection class IP67 of an entire low voltage motor type series. The series extends to outputs of 400 kW and voltages of 1000 V. In addition, TÜV Süd has attested Menzel’s procedures for IP67 testing, which the manufacturer also offers for medium voltage motors from its own brand up to 11 kV. Menzel builds IP67 motors with minimal tolerances, waterproof encapsulated cast-iron casings and terminal boxes. The manufacturer holds stock in its main warehouse of all basic components for dust- and waterproof squirrel-cage motors and can therefore realize very short delivery times for standard designs of IP67 motors. The motors are used worldwide, mainly in pump stations, flood-prone areas, food and drink industries and maritime applications. They can be fully immersed at standstill for a period of 24 hours without any ingress of water. Subsequently, when water has receded, the motors are ready to be switched on again directly. The manufacturer runs comprehensive acceptance tests on its motors in its inhouse load test field before shipping. As part of the test spectrum, Menzel also offers underwater tests for all induction motors with cage or slip ring rotors. At the 2021 AEMT Awards of the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades, Menzel IP67 motors were voted the Product of the Year.

Menzel Elektromotoren has adapted and delivered a 6500-kW slip ring motor for a cement mill at short notice. The MEBSSL-type motor is ideally suited for industrial applications with high starting torques. Menzel adapted the internal motor winding connections for a 60-Hz mains voltage in the country of operation, Canada, and moved the terminal box according to customer specifications. The capability to provide such a flexible, on-schedule customization was decisive for winning the contract. The motor design moreover ensures long-term reliable operation in the target application. The motor series is characterized by high efficiency, high power density, a compact design, robust bearings and high load capacity. The welded-steel housing is designed for maximum torsional rigidity and optimal cooling. The motor features protection class IP55, cooling class IC 611 and a nominal torque of 52076 Nm. The enclosed self-cooling system, a detached air-to-air heat exchanger, ensures high efficiency and optimal dust protection. Slip ring motors are still the preferred choice of many cement plant operators. In dusty environments, they offer great advantages over the combination of squirrel-cage motors and frequency inverters because they need no power electronics and are therefore much more resilient. Not least, there is a considerable price difference in this performance class. Three-phase slip ring motors, which are started with a liquid starter, offer an economic solution for driving mills, crushers and conveyors. They only require small starting currents and provide the full torque from standstill.

Launching the new multifunctional IO-Link converter IOL-KONV-UIS-01, EGE presents a compact and simple solution for noise-free digital signal transmission from conventional sensors via IO-Link. Depending on its configuration, the converter registers up to two analog values (0…10 V, 4…20 mA) or switching signals from the connected sensor, converts them into digital signals and transmits them to an IO-Link primary device. In addition to the digital output for process data transmission, the device has a second, analog output for programmable current or switching signals. All conventional sensors from EGE and other manufacturers can be connected to the converter, regardless of operating principles and measured values. The IO-Link converter offers additional monitoring functions. If the power consumption or operating voltage of the connected sensor deviate from recorded setpoints, for instance due to corrosion, the device sends an error message to the controller as an IO-Link event. To protect its own electronics, the converter features temperature monitoring, short-circuit detection and an adjustable shutdown function in case of overload. A front-end multicolor LED clearly shows the operating status. M12 connectors for sensors and IO-Link primary devices eliminate any cabling effort. The IP67-rated converter housing features lugs for flexible mounting near the sensor in all installation conditions. The converter is parameterized according to IO-Link Device Description V1.1 using an engineering tool connected via the IO-Link interface.
