RUN HOURS for Drives
We are using 800xA with PLC connect. And CCB-5.1 at a site.
We are working with FBD in our CCB code
There are simple DOL motors for which we need to calculate RUN-HOURS: that for how much time motor has run ,on daily/weekly etc basis.
I haven't made logic for such, in past. Can you please suggest me how it can be done ?
Thanks in advance !!
There isn't a "standard procedure" for calculating run hours - other than doing exactly what youve just done. Just connect the motor run feedback to a TIMER and reset the timer from a button or some graphic element on the motor faceplate. The output of the timer can also be shown on the faceplate. Many of the ABB supplied FB's for motors already have this basic function built in.
If your plant has some other requirments for monitoring run hours, then that is something you need to discuss with your maintenance group. But the basic principle should always be KISS (keep it simple stupid) - do not over complicate your solution.
