Summary

The Timber & Logging industry is crucial for our way of life. Time is money, making downtime the enemy. Bonitron offers many solutions for the Logging industry.

  • Maximize drive system efficiency and reliability
  • Safely lower loads without tripping drives
  • Utilize braking current to power other drives
  • Backup power to protect from sags and outages

Crane/Hoist


When lowering a load, a crane motor will be overhauling. An overvoltage fault in this situation would drop the load if there is no mechanical backup.

Braking Transistor

Braking Transistor

  • M3452 or M3575T
  • Up to 1600A per unit
    (Master/Slave Capable)
  • Local and remote status monitoring
  • System can be reconfigured on-the-fly
Braking Resistor

Resistive Load Banks

  • M3775R
  • Ratings up to MegaWatts
  • Galvanized steel enclosure
  • NEMA-3R and stainless steel options

Conveyors

A downhill conveyor provides a constant overhauling load while other conveyors will need to be able to start and stop quickly. Regenerative braking is preferred for these applications.Bonitron offers Braking Transistors, Resistors, and Line Regeneration units to absorb the excess regenerative energy created by conveyor systems. Many applications allow the regenerative energy to be placed back on the available AC line, which can be done with our M3645 or 3545 Line Regeneration units. On remote conveyors where no AC line power is available and generators are used, the Transistor is required to protect the generator from energy feeding back into the generator.

Debarkers


Debarkers remove bark from logs or stems to prepare for chipping or sawing into lumber.
There are four main types of debarkers: ring, drum, Rosser Head, and flail debarkers. Rotating components of these systems need to be stopped and started quickly.

Saws

Saws are used extensively and must be started and stopped quickly.
Emergency stop is required for the safety of the workers. Regenerative braking increases safety and efficiency.
