Eurotherm: New Power Controllers
April 6, 2004
Eurotherm, a unit of Invensys plc, recently announced its new RVM series of SCR power controllers. This rugged family of power controllers is available in three- and single-phase versions rated for 40 amps at 660 VAC. Offering zero cross firing for fixed resistance loads, the RVM is almost silent in operation and can eliminate the switch-on surge by operating in synchronization with the supply without degrading the electrical environment. The new RVM family uses a performance-engineered heat sink and thermal transfer technology, which means that the RVM heatsink generates less heat than other SCR controllers.
