Lifting Magnet Controllers
How much energy (money) can I save on my magnets by using a MAGNIFIER®? Do you have a method for estimating the saving for my particular application? Would this include the money I would save on fewer maintenance hours and parts.
The MAGNIFIER® has an on-board power savings calculator. When the cost per KWH, and the old magnet information is added, this program will keep track of the savings "to-date" based on energy use by the MAGNIFIER vs. the old system. The calculator keeps track of the magnet returned energy, but does not count the savings due to losses in the rectifier, the elimination of routine contactor maintenance or parts, the effects of running magnets at cooler temperatures, or the effects of sounding alarms upon magnet over-temperature.
