As one of the leading manufacturers of components, systems and solutions for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton’s Electrical Sector today announced the expanding of the soft starter series DS7 with devices up to 200 A. The soft starter is increasingly becoming established as an alternative to the star-delta starter. Users are thus provided with a complete system from 4 to 200 A with a standard actuation and functionality that will fully replace the previous DS4 and DS6 series. The supply voltage on the DS7 ranges from 200 to 480 V, and versions with 24 V AC/DC and 110-230V AC actuation are available.

The innovative design, combined with Eaton's expertise in low voltage applications, brings a new, reliable platform that is the heart of any motor control or power distribution system. Power Xpert CX is a compact, ergonomic and flexible system.
Pyrometers often feature through-the-lens sighting which enables precise alignment to the target and correct distance adjustment. The instrument will yield the most accurate tempera-ture data when the optics have been properly focused.
EDF (Electricité de France), Toyota and the Strasbourg area council have selected PcVue SCADA software, developed by ARC Informatique, for a joint three-year project titled Kléber. This is a full-scale experiment with a fleet of 70 rechargeable hybrid vehicles (RHV) and 145 charging stations throughout the Strasbourg urban area. Value for money, short lead times and industrial know-how all played a crucial role in the selection process.
