Baldor’s BE$T Program Now Comes In Cool iTunes App

There are a million and one iPhone apps out there but this one by Baldor Electric Company, www.baldor.com  is way cool.  Those smart cookies at Baldor have converted their BE$T desktop program for calculating and comparing motor efficiencies to an Apple iphone app. 

By calculating a motor’s annual electricity usage based on its nominal efficiency and comparing it to the annual electricity usage of Baldor’s Standard-E and Super-E premium efficiency motors, it can then recommend, by catalog number, the appropriate Baldor motor for the application as well as information on the payback period for replacing the existing motor. 

Even better, it will also calculate useful information such as  the yearly electrical savings when a variable speed drive is used vs. a constant speed motor. 

But now you can have that service anywhere by downloading the Baldor BE$T app from itunes.  This version is also a smaller and easier to use package.  Sounds pretty cool to me.   And no, I do not work for itunes OR Baldor … just thought I’d bring this cool app to your attention.

PLC, PC or PAC?

In a word, it’s all about … automation.  Now that the economy is beginning to recover, most manufacturing companies report that they are planning to invest in more automation. 

For more than 30 years we have been using our trusty PLC’s because they are simple and reliable, if a bit quirky.  PLC’s have practically merged with PC’s in recent times. 

Then, more recently, the PLC sprouted wings and emerged as a PAC.  If you’re not already familiar with a PAC – that’s a Programmable Automation Controller.  These units combine the sturdy reliability of the PLC with the programming language of a PC.

The PAC uses commercial computer chips and the Microsoft Windows operating system which allows you more control without giving up your existing systems.  And that is the wave of the future – faster network speeds and more utilization of wireless technologies to leap larger distances to remote sites or even to distant buildings where cabling is impossible or costly.

These systems give you lots of options for your application needs. It just depends on what you need and what you can afford.  Whether you are using PLC’s, PAC’s or a combination, most of these units will eventually need repair.

The ACS tech team will provide the services you need when it ‘s time to repair your PLC or PACAllen-Bradley, Honeywell, National Instrument, ABB, Unitronics, Baumuller, Mitsubishi, Modicon, Omron, Siemens, Square D, Yaskawa and many more brands are serviced by our expert team.
