The loads on electric motors say a great deal about the condition of «their» drives, machines, and systems. If the viscosity of a liquid or production equipment gets jammed, the load on the electric motor increases. Likewise, dirt or damage on a machine can be detected as well. A TELE load monitor reliably measures the load state so it can detect deviations from the optimal state of a system. If loads deviate from defined thresholds, either too low or too high, the unit triggers an alarm or switching operations that initiate a remedy. In this way, TELE load monitors improve the stability of machines and systems and help avoid costly damage and production downtime.
