Iranian researchers have managed to indigenize and mass produce a series of electronic equipment used in power and petrochemical industries.
The researchers of an Iranian company, involved in the field of electronics, have indigenized and mass produced electronic equipment required by domestic power and petrochemical industries.
According to a Farsi report by Mehr News Agency, commenting on the indigenized products, Massoud Haji Hassan Khansari, the managing director of the company, said his company has successfully implemented a number of projects to manufacture limit, miniature snap-action, push button and electric floater switches.
Expounding on the details of the products, he added the switches comply with EN 60947-5-1 standard and are equipped with 1 NC/1 NO open and closed electrical contacts.
Haji Hassan Khansari put the voltage, frequency, electrical contact capacity and IP Code, also known as International Protection Marking, of the products at 380/250 VAC, 60/50 Hz, 15A and IP 65, respectively.
He listed the other properties of the products as being equipped with power factor correction capacitors, smart regulators to be used in capacitor banks and timers as well as possessing the capability of discharging the capacitor by internal resistances, working in a temperature range of -25°C to +55°C, combining a selection of capacitors to modify factor correction, and setting the entrance and exit time of the circuit capacitors.
Haji Hassan Khansari said the other product of his company is the residual-current circuit breaker (RCCB), which is a device capable of instantly breaking an electric circuit to prevent serious harm caused by an ongoing electric shock and protecting the circuit against short-circuit and overvoltage.
He added that his company’s RCCBs can be used in single-phase circuits and installed on 35mm DIN rails.
The company’s CEO listed the consumers of the products during the past three years as electric power distribution companies, manufacturers of industrial electrical enclosures and automation systems as well as those involved in the mass construction of residential units.
He said currently, his company is manufacturing miniature and automatic switches, bimetallic overload relays, RCCBs and fuse switches.
Haji Hassan Khansari added, “Since all these products and equipment were previously imported, we decided to produce them domestically.”
