mototr controle


Hi all,
Can somone please tell how to romotely controle a 3 phase motor which is connected to an invertor.
I can monitor the vibration in my machine from my office PC.  i want to controle the motor , to stop it romotely if i detect any vibration problem .

RE: mototr controle

1. Consider a vibration detector, possibly with a manual override
2. Yes, you may control your inverter remotely, e.g. with a remote keypad. It just depends how remote is remote. It may get wireless.
3. All equipment is avalable over manufacturers listed at
where you may search for a vibration detector and remote control depending on nature of "remote."

RE: mototr controle

How 'remote' is the drive from your office? You will probably end up doing some economics here as your choices are:
- hard-wire an additional stop button into the stop circuit or
- use a wireless control to operate a normally closed relay in the stop circuit.

The economics come into play deciding which method to use. A wireless control and matching relay may be expensive enough to pay for a lot of conduit and wire, especially for a small control circuit like this. If a wireless control is cost effective or required, you will need to be sure that it is a type that won't be subject to false operation due to stray signals or interference.
