When it comes to variable frequency drives, tradeoffs may need to be made. How much power do you need? How much space do you have? The SINAMICS V20 family of AC drives might just be the answer to these typical questions.
These Siemens-produced, SINAMICS branded VFDs come in a variety of frame sizes and output ratings for when you need a low-power drive to smoothly start and stop a motor or to control speed and torque during operation of an increasing number of a basic motion sequences.
The SINAMICS V20 AC drive family is an economical, compact, rugged and reliable group of drives that bring versatility, and ease of use and installation to 40-hp and under plant and machinery construction, individual automation, and drive solution applications.
With seven frame sizes, the SINAMICS V20can be individually adapted to the particular application or user requirements using various options such as an external Basic Operator Panel (BOP), connecting cable, filter, braking resistors, shielding, and more.
The power range is:
0.12 kW to 30 kW (1/6 hp up to 40 hp).
The voltage range is:
1AC 200V … 240V (–10% / +10%)
3AC 380V … 480V (–15% / +10%)
The newest and smallest of the SINAMICS V20 family of drives are the FSAA and FSAB models that save more than 30% in mounting space compared to the previously smallest model, the SINAMICS’ FSA model (90 mm (3.5 in.) x 150 mm (6 in.)) . With a width of just 68 mm (2.7 in.) and a height of 142 mm (5.6 in.), the AA and AB models both have the same footprint, but different heatsink depths.
The V20 family of rugged devices, which are IP20 rated and can be EMC filtered, are tailored for operating pumps, fans, compressors and conveyor belts as well as for basic drive applications in the process and manufacturing industries.
Ease of use and installation
One of the V20’S benefits is ease of installation. The units can be wall mounted, push through mounted for efficient cooling, and side-by-side mounted to reduce required cabinet space. Typically, drives need to be 2 in. apart for cooling purposes, but with heat sinks located judiciously to release heat through the top and bottom of the unit.
The unit itself is easy to use. A Parameter Loader makes it easy to program and speed up commissioning. This modular, plug-and-play device easily installs to the face of the drive. The device uses a memory card that allows more than 100 parameters to be installed such as motor specifications, voltage, current speed, application deceleration rate acceleration rate and other pertinent data, says Jovan Cetkovic, Motion Specialist with Steiner Electric.
Additionally, “cloning” is possible by installing the same parameter loader on different drives.
Without the parameter loader, users access a basic operator panel on the face of the drive. Utilizing the BOP, all parameters can be programmed giving the user full control of the drive in terms of speed and other factors.
In addition, there are terminals on the face of the drive that allow for direct wiring for analog I/O control.
The SINAMICS’ V20’s feature a Keep Running Mode that keeps the output load running even in the event of power fluctuations, overvoltage, overcurrent, or other power stability issues.
Energy savings is achieved in several ways. For instance, the SINAMICS V20 drive makes it easy to save money through the use of an ECO mode that ensures that the motor current is automatically adapted to the load state. In addition to that, the drive is capable of DC bus couplings such that a drive regenerating can share power with other drives.
The drive also features a Hibernation Mode that reduces energy consumption when the drive is not in active use.
It also features an integrated braking chopper from 7.5 kW to 30 kW (10 hp up to 40 hp). When a motor is de-energized and coming to a stop, it changes from a motor to a generator producing energy. Resistors dissipate energy so the VFD’s capacitors are not damaged. This power can also be used during drive regeneration.
The V20 drive family has a number of accessories that can be used. For instance, a new extension module is available to increase the number of inputs and outputs of the SINAMICS V20 400V converter.
Mounted onto the converter, the module provides 2 additional digital inputs and 2 relay outputs to the converter. The module increases functionality. For example, it can now be used for multi-pump control, where one V20 can control a maximum of four pumps.
Equipped with connection ports on its front- and backside, the module may be used in combination with other accessories of the SINAMICS V20 such as the BOP, the BOP interface, and the Smart Access web server.
SINAMICS V20 Smart Access is a tiny drive-mounted web server module that turns a mobile device or laptop into a virtual operator panel, allowing it to commission, operate, diagnose, and maintain the AC drive.
An embedded graphical user interface (GUI) enables easy use of the SINAMICS V20 in every phase of operation. It requires only a few steps to set-up and no installation or download of additional software is needed. The onboard Quick Set-up Wizard provides users a fast and easy commissioning procedure, enabling all the following: motor data can be entered and checked, connection macros for digital inputs/outputs can be activated, application macros can be selected and activated for pumps, fans, compressors and other devices plus the common and frequently used parameters on the drive can be set for motor start, acceleration, deceleration, and min./max. speed.

Emergency stops. Restarts. Line changes. These and other functions have at least one thing in common: pushbuttons.
Pushbuttons are relatively simple devices. At their most basic, the literal push-a-button to facilitate change, they open and close circuits. They can start an industrial process, stop it, or perform other predetermined functions that humans, interacting with machines, deem necessary.
While simple, they are not simplistic. First, there are literal pushbuttons such as the 30 mm from Schneider (pictured), and then there are sibling products in the pushbutton family such as pilot lights and selector switches.
Then there are the many options available. Many, many options in some cases.
To help its customers, Schneider Electric and Steiner Electric have combined to make things a little easier with new pushbutton selector tools.
At the Forefront of Pushbuttons
First, what are all these options?
Today’s pushbuttons are modular in nature and can be augmented with application-specific accessories that can turn them into aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-use human-machine interface (HMI) components. They can be used in a galaxy of applications from pristine production to harsh process environments and integrated into stand-alone machinery or sophisticated, multi-purpose assembly lines … just about any industry with operations that have been automated, but still require some human intervention is an appropriate use.
Schneider Electric is a leader in pushbuttons, including the Harmony line which is distributed by Steiner Electric. The pushbuttons and signaling devices come in a range of styles that provide easy and reliable operations for industrial applications.
In this Schneider video, Jim Clark, Marketing Director Control and Signaling, says that Harmony offers the best-in-class pushbuttons, pilot lights, and switches on the market.
Harmony pushbuttons, which comply with all international standards, have been designed for OEMs, system integrators, panel builders, and others that build, repair, or customize machinery. For them, Schneider offers a unique and unrivaled depth of push-buttons, pilot lights and switches on the market, Clark says.
One of the newest products, and an industry game changer, is the 30 mm Harmony pushbutton that expands on its 22-mm version. The 9001 30mm products include pushbuttons, pilot lights, selector switches, and mushroom head buttons. The rugged 9001 operators can feature chrome-plate bezels, black plastic bezels for corrosion-resistant applications, chrome-plated square bezels that provide multi-function operation, and many, many other options. Contacts, profiles, and additional options can be swapped out for something more appropriate.
So how is selection simpler?
With all these options selecting the appropriate pushbutton can be a challenge. Schneider Electric has made the process simpler by developing the EZ Selectors system.
The EZ Selector tools ask simple “click-to-answer questions,” and the user is self-guided through a process that ultimately leads to the right product for the application.
For instance, from the main EZ selector page, users can go to a product subset such as the 30-mm pushbutton or emergency stop product. From there, they can drill down into the various options to find the appropriate component.
Do you want, chromium-plated metal or plastic as the bezel material? Do you want the operator profile to be projecting, recessed or flush? The lens color can be any of 7 colors in one model or just black, green and red for another.
Once you’ve selected your needed product you can add it to your shopping cart. That is where Steiner Electric comes in. We will facilitate the purchase and either deliver the part or allow you the option to pick it up in one of our 8 conveniently located Will-Call Counters.
Every year, thousands of buildings are built or retrofitted. Every one of these spaces can benefit from lighting control that saves energy, improves comfort, and enhances productivity.
Vive from Lutron is a simple, flexible and scalable lighting control solution that can help the facility manager, owner, tenant, contractor, maintenance personnel and other personnel to reap these benefits. The system is comprised of a full family of wireless devices that can be tied together to enable centralized control, monitoring and system integration.
Vive can help buildings meet stringent energy codes, improve building performance, and do so on budget and on schedule. Wireless controls allow you to design options that provide the right functionality for each space in your building.
Vive is simple enough to deliver basic energy savings and robust enough to apply additional lighting control strategies such as time-clock scheduling, energy and system monitoring, demand response, load shed, and seamless integration to BMS via BACNet with software that works on any smart device.
Vive lets you combine lighting control strategies to maximize efficiency such as occupancy/vacancy sensing, daylight harvesting, scheduling, demand response, plug load control, high-end trim, personal dimming control and even HVAC integration.
When launching the brand in 2016, Eric Lind, vice president of global specifications, said, “To a building owner or facility manager, Vive represents a scalable, flexible lighting control solution that easily transforms a building one step at a time, or as space needs change, and helps address energy-saving issues. To contractors, Vive represents a reliable, simple, time-saving product that’s versatile enough to control all light sources in any size commercial building. This product addresses the needs of customers on many levels.”
Traditional installations can be labor intensive and complex to set up.
Vive, on the other hand, is simple. Wireless control can be installed as much as 70 percent faster than traditional wired lighting controlled solutions. This reduces labor costs and minimizes disruption among workers and those utilizing the space.
In addition, Vive helps meet lighting control code requirements for new construction and retrofits such as for ASHRAE 2010, ASHRE 2013, IECC 2022, IECC 2015, and Title 24-2016.
Lutron utilizes its Clear Connect® Wireless technology to establish communications with lighting and building controls at a range of 71 ft (22M).
Clear Connect operates on the 435 MHz band wave, while many other wireless technologies operate on the more traditional 2.4 gigahertz band wave. This 2.4 GHz band wave is much more frequently used, and this congestion could create problems that could cause a failure–which might be okay when streaming a movie, but lighting a commercial building is another story.
Lutron chose 435 MHZ band wave because it is less busy; in fact, the FCC puts limitations on the amount of traffic that can operate over this wavelength. The limit makes it a much quieter band, and so the messages are able to get through more reliably.
For the actual installation process, Vive offers wallbox mounting, ceiling mounts, and Vive-enabled fixtures on a standard junction box.
Wallbox mounting allows contractors to replace an existing switch in a standard wallbox to control a group of lights, and it requires no new wiring. For the ceiling mount, PowPak modules mount on a standard junction box in the ceiling to control groups of lights. It saves installation time by eliminating wiring down through walls. Vive-enabled fixtures have wireless control and sensing built into the fixture. No additional wiring is required.
For example, if a contractor or MRO is replacing a switch in a restroom where there is currently a toggle switch on the wall, the installer takes out that toggle switch and puts in either a wireless switch or a dimmer into that location without any new wiring. Simply commission the switch by holding the remote’s button down for several seconds.
Vive is also easy to commission, which is a good thing if the installer and the person starting to use the controls are not one in the same. The person doesn’t have to climb on a ladder to find the load controllers, the Pico remote controllers can find nearby devices based on RF signal strength. Simply holding the button down for a few seconds does the trick.
XCT Sensing Technology
Another strength of the system is its sensing technology. Standard PIR sensors are good at detecting major motion like a person walking; however, they have difficulty detecting less obvious movements.
That is where the Lutron XCT technology comes into play. This “Cross Correlation Technology,” as the company calls it, can take measurements utilizing passive infrared sensors and sophisticated algorithms to distinguish the difference between background noise and actual motion. By fine tuning these waves, the sensor can go beyond simple major movement such as someone pacing the floor, to notice when someone is doing more passive actions such as working at a desk or reading a report and keep the lamps lit.
So, Vive can control that one office fixture or it can also be tied into building management systems. A simple ethernet port ties Vive to other building systems. The BACnet/IP protocol is the primary means of integration. BACnet is embedded or native in the Vive wireless hub, which means no external interfaces or gateways are required to communicate with other systems.
For instance, Vive can be tied into a buildings’ heating, ventilation and air conditioning system and utilize its occupancy/vacancy sensors to heat and cool individual rooms, floors or whole buildings. While some buildings have already begun integrating HVAC control into their building SOPs, in the future this capability might be required by code.
Getting the right bulb
While Vive offers many features and benefits, to
light a room or bigger space, it must have the appropriate lamp and controllers for the job. The good news is that Lutron has developed a selector to make the search easier.
Select the LAMP AND LIGHTING CONTROL to fit your application or contact your Steiner lighting application specialist for assistance.
For more information on Lutron Vive wireless solutions or LED compatibility, call 1-800-STEINER (783-4637) to speak with a Steiner lighting application engineer.

Are you worried about unplanned machine downtime? Not getting the life expectancy from your band saw blades that you hoped for? Can’t sleep because operator mistakes got you worried about excessive scrap, unnecessary post-production work, employee injuries?
If you are, and at least one survey suggests that you might be, then LENOX, an industry leading band saw blade producer, could have some answers for you.
And, you don’t have to find room in your budget for a consultant. The analysis is free.
LENOX experts will conduct a free Site Survey that documents all aspects of a sawing operation. The detailed study extends beyond blade usage, however, and includes analyzing processes that may diminish inefficiencies or add cost to bandsaw operations.
When completed, the company will receive a clear written report with recommendations covering products, processes, and personnel. Projected cost savings are identified based on agreed to metrics that can be measured and monitored.
In previous benchmark surveys of more than 100 facilities, LENOX found that machine downtime, blade failure, and operator error are the “top-three sources of frustration for industrial metal cutting operations on the shop floor.”
To learn more about your operations, LENOX application specialists will perform a series of audits ranging from technology to human performance and determine best practices to improve your operations, and, perhaps, relieve your company’s particular “frustrations.”
They will identify and confirm facility goals, metrics and key challenges. They will observe and record sawing performance, machine conditions and operator practices.
For instance, as part of the machine diagnostics and assessment portion of the survey, a LENOX application specialist will undertake a 13-point assessment with emphasis on critical sawing parameters such as band speed, band tension, band alignment, feed rate, feed pressure, and fluid ratio.
Additionally, the LENOX application specialists will engage with your staff in an attempt to determine and elevate skill levels. If needed, they can develop a customized training program that may include comprehensive safety training, sawing optimization techniques and trouble-shooting fundamentals as well as new employee training through to advanced operator and preventative maintenance training.
In the end, the application specialists will provide an assessment of your baseline operations, root cause analysis of problems and inefficiencies, and the actions planned to address those issues. The report will contain detailed recommendations to improve productivity, increase throughput and lower total costs.
If you are considering a lighting upgrade or you are bidding on a lighting job for the Standard or the Public Sector that would require ComEd incentives to facilitate, it is imperative that you follow new certification guidelines passed by Illinois legislation. Non-compliance will result in a loss of financial incentives.
The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) requires the installing contractor to be certified in order to receive any utility incentives. According to Steiner Electric’s Lighting Division, contractors must fill out the application, send the appropriate “good standing” business form, an insurance form that has been notarized, and then mail that packet to the Commission. Then, the ICC will review the application.
According to an email from the utility:
“If the end user does not do a self-install, they must have a certified contractor install the material or the they will not qualify for a rebate. The new program goes into place on January 1, 2018, and includes any projects that are given extensions from the 2017 program year … ”
In accordance with the Future Energy Jobs Act, the Illinois Commerce Commission requires a trade ally company, i.e. contractors and home builders, to certify as an Entity Installing Energy Efficiency Measures.
To assist your company in complying with the new guidelines (Section 16-128B of the Public Utilities Act, and 83 Ill. Adm. Code (Part) 462), Com Ed has put the appropriate forms necessary to apply for the certification on its website. The forms can be found at the Illinois Commerce Commission’s Energy Efficiency Measures Installer website: https://www.icc.illinois.gov/Electricity/authorities/EEMI.aspx,
At this website, contractors can find:
* Part 462 Application Form
* Part 462 Application Instructions
* Part 462 EE Measures Installer Rules
For tips on how to fill out and submit Energy Efficiency Measure Installer Certification Application, visit the Illinois Secretary of State website (where trade allies can obtain documentation stating that their company is in good standing with the state): https://www.ilsos.gov/corporatellc/CorporateLlcController.

If we could harness the smiles of joy from the children and their families who attended the 26th Annual Homeless Children’s Party and convert it to electricity, we could light many future nights no matter how dark some of those nights may be.
On a snowy, blustery Saturday morning, a record number of children and their families were transported from their temporary residences at seven Chicago-area homeless shelters to the James Jordan Boys & Girls Club in Chicago. In all, more than 250 children and 100 family members were treated to a festive Christmas party sponsored by the Chicago Electrical Industry (CEI). The girls and boys ranged in age from newborns to 16 and older. Most of the children were under 10-years old.
Each child received a gift from Santa, ably assisted by Mrs. Claus and a record number of volunteer elves. The gifts were collected during the annual Steiner Electric Toy Drive, and similar toy drives at other CEI companies. In addition to getting gifts and meeting Santa, the children and their family enjoyed a holiday meal of turkey with all the trimmings.
After every child received a gift, Santa and Mrs. Claus exited the hall with a trail of happy, but exhausted, children in their wake. As the families departed, volunteers thanked them for coming and gave them a goodie bag to take with them as they were transported back to the shelters.
Through donations from CEI members, all the day’s expenses were covered. Excess funds will be used to buy much needed items for the shelters whose residents attended the party. In year’s past, the CEI has provided computers, printers, mattresses, and linens to these facilities. Additionally, the remaining gifts were donated to the Hesed House in Aurora. The shelter provides food, housing and other necessities to those in need.
ComEd released its 2018 list of energy efficient lighting products for which certified contractors can receive ComEd rebates.
The list reflects two significant changes compared to 2017. High wattage LED lamps are now on the Instant Discounts List. These lamps replace 150W and greater HID lamps. The other change is that the public sector, such as public schools and municipalities, will now be eligible to receive these rebates.
To help you better understand the available lighting incentives, contact your local Steiner lighting consultant by calling 1-800-STEINER (783-4637) or visit one of Steiner Electric’s convenient locations and we will help you sort out your lighting needs. Steiner’s lighting experts can help determine the most appropriate lighting technology for a job, and help ensure that you receive the most bang for your lighting buck.
In an increasingly automated world, manufacturing control panels can be a production bottleneck, a time consuming and costly manual process. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Steiner can help you take the chore out of modifying your electrical enclosures, and let you get back to helping your customers and doing the contracting work that actually makes you money.
Whether you need modified one-off panels or require complex modifications to vital enclosures or subpanels, let Steiner automate the process with its Hoffman Certified Modification Center, aka the ModCenter293. Utilizing our available production capacity, broad range of capabilities, and experienced technicians, we can help you slash your production costs and lead times. Our engineered solutions can help you design and select the right electrical protection solution for your application.
Manufacturing control panels is traditionally a labor-intensive process with a lot of steps: drilling and tapping, milling and mark up. A typical enclosure might require marking each hole and cutout location, drilling pilot holes and expanding those holes with larger bits, and using a jig saw to do the final cut out. Then, of course, there is the post-processing work: the deburring, filing sharp edges, performing general clean-up work. Those are just a few of the potential manual processes that might be required. After all that, you might still find holes off centered or threads misaligned.
All-and-all, not a fast, precise or repeatable solution.
Considering that a 36-in. by 48-in. electrical enclosure could have 40 to 50 holes and cutouts and a back panel could have as many as 200 holes with taps, the ability to accurately and expeditiously customize enclosures is vital. Especially at a time when customers are demanding shorter build times, and accuracy and quality requirements are increasing.
Steiner can help contractors meet customer mandates. Dan Williams, manager of the Steiner Electric Custom Products Group says, “By automating labor-intensive modification tasks we can increase productivity, quality, and flexibility. We can produce holes and cutouts in minutes, not hours, and when we are done the holes are precise and clean and ready to populate.”
The ModCenter293 features software that integrates seamlessly with CAD DXF files and other file formats to push jobs forward.
The CNC unit handles enclosures up to 93.7 in. by 86 in. and back panels up to 93 in. by 94 in. It can process a variety of materials including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper and PVC, polycarbonate, amd glass-reinforced plastic (GRP).
It features smooth, low-vibration movement of the cutting head, which is precision ball-screw spindle driven. Minimizing vibration helps extend tool life, but more important to our customers is that it processes materials fast and accurately. For instance, it can process up to 78 in. per minute (2000mm/min) in mild steel.
An automated tool changer with a magazine that holds up to 21 tools to perform all necessary drilling, milling, tapping, circular milling – all the processing steps required for enclosure modifications.
Vertically oriented and operating in multi-axes, the unit grabs a tool and makes all the cuts that it can with that cutting tool, moving along a preprogrammed cutting path, before exchanging the cutter with another tool to continue the process. The CNC machine operates along these vertical lines, explains Williams. “It rides on this plane, modifying whatever is on the plane.”
A flexible machine, the ModCenter293 allows for fast changes if needed. “We are like an on-site job shop,” says Williams. “Our number one priority is to make sure our customers get the enclosure they need for the job, at a competitive price, and get it on time, every time.”
Vast Array of Options
As an authorized Hoffman Distributor, Steiner offers the largest inventory of Hoffman enclosures in Northern Illinois. And these enclosures can be modified to specific requirements. In fact, by combining standard enclosures with available modifications, thousands of unique enclosures are possible.
Standard options available include:
100+ standard paint finish options
Holes and cutout options
Studs, nuts, and tapped holes
Installation of standard accessories
Hoffman enclosures are UL-certified to comply with all relevant specifications including UL, CSA, NEMA, CE, and IEG classifications. Some models are UL explosion-, chemical- and corrosion-proof, and some are IP-rated to prevent dust and water ingress.
Our factory trained Hoffman Enclosure Specialist, Bret Bevers, can assist you with product and technical application information, training, research, design and special quotation for your enclosure needs.
“The range of enclosures are remarkable,” says Bevers. “We can make them from a variety of materials and in all different types of classifications. For instance, a contractor might need a NEMA 1 enclosure or a multitude of different enclosures with different ratings.”
Stainless steel can be appropriate for food and beverage projects, and special coatings can be applied to the stainless steel to prevent corrosion. A corrosive environment might require special coatings to protect the enclosure from dangerous and corrosive gases or harsh liquids.
“The options are great with the Hoffman line,” says Bevers. “Each one has its own character.”
So, come and get modified enclosures without the hassle of measuring, drilling, cutting or any of the other tedious operations that are required.
