DEM Manufacturing and CP Automation strike technical partnership
EMC filters for machine tools, HVAC, servo drives, VSDs, generators and induction lighting.
Electrical and automation maintenance and repair specialist, CP Automation has agreed a distribution deal with DEM Manufacturing. CP Automation will sell the company’s Roxburgh inline electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electro-magnetic interferences (EMI) noise filters in the UK. The arrangement will complement CP Automation’s existing maintenance services and product range, which includes inverters, power resistors and PLCs.
DEM Manufacturing designs and produces cost-effective standard and custom solutions, including industrial filters and general EMC filters, for some of the world´s leading OEMs. The company’s Roxburgh industrial filters range includes single-phase filters, three-phase filters, three phase and neutral filters, in current ratings from 1A to 1000A.
DEM’s general EMC filters range includes IEC inlet filters, chassis mounting filters and PCB filters. In addition, Roxburgh offers a wide range of EMC components including common mode chokes and differential mode EMC chokes, spark quenchers and open toroidal chokes.
Typical applications for industrial filters include machine tools (KMF), HVAC (KMFA), servo drives (KMFA, MDF, MDF3, MIF, MIF3), variable speed drives (KMFA, MDF, MDF3, MIF, MIF3), generators (KMF), renewable energy (KMFA), marine and induction lighting applications (RES5 and RES3). Roxburgh also offers EMC filters designed to meet military and defence standards MIL461E and DEF59-41.
All Roxburgh EMC filters are designed and tested to meet Directive 2006/95/EC and UL1283 rev 5 product safety standards. Approvals held include UL and CSA.
“DEM Manufacturing sells through a variety of channels,” says Darren Fuller, the company’s sales manager. “Adding CP Automation into that equation enables us to strengthen our presence further. The fact that our new partner already provides products and services used in variable speed drive applications makes them a good fit to supply and support our equipment.”
“The Roxburgh range is recognised in the industry as reliable and robust,” explained John Mitchell, business development manager of CP Automation. “Our current offering, which includes Cressall dynamic braking resistors and REVCON regeneration units, is applicable irrespective of the drive manufacturer. I think this level of independence is something that the DEM range genuinely compliments.”
“By adding EMC Filters to the portfolio, we are able to help further, as many of our customers are designing big systems where it’s not always economical to fit an individual EMC filter for each drive in the panel,” continued Mitchell. “What’s more doing so wouldn’t necessarily mean that the result would meet EMC tests. More and more we are seeing design engineers looking to install one EMC filter for the entire system. Equally with manufacturing lead times changing, we have seen an increase in demand for projects running late due to product availability.”
