Have you ever thought?
A permanent-electro system consumes about 2.7% compared to a traditional electromagnet of the same capacity.
Assuming an average of 90 movements per day, the saving in 1 year is estimated at over 6,000 $!
|Operating hours per day (*)||9||0.25|
|Consumption per day kWh||135||3.6|
|Annual consumption kWh (**)||3,750||900|
|Annual energy cost $ (***)||6,358||152|
(*) 90 translations, average duration 6 minutes
(**) Year with 250 working days
(**) Cost kWh: 0.19 $
In addition, a permanent-electro system allows additional savings due to lower maintenance:
– does not require back-up batteries (with electromagnets the batteries must be checked and replaced periodically)
– it does not overheat, therefore it does not wear out (the windings of the electromagnets suffer from performance decay)
All TECNOLIFT handling systems are permanent-electro.
