FAQ

What is the difference between R5 PLUS and COBRA PLUS?

R5 PLUS and COBRA PLUS vacuum pumps generate vacuum in two different ways.
R5 PLUS vacuum pumps operate according to the proven rotary vane principle and are oil-lubricated. COBRA PLUS vacuum pumps are based on screw vacuum technology which works completely dry.

How do the PLUS vacuum pumps differ from ordinary vacuum pumps?

PLUS are our fully connected vacuum pumps. They enhance proven Busch technology with control, condition monitoring and communication. This makes the PLUS family ready for Industry 4.0.

Why are the PLUS vacuum pumps ready for Industry 4.0?

The fully connected PLUS series vacuum pumps bring the proven Busch vacuum technology to the next level. With advanced control and monitoring functionalities they are ready for Industry 4.0.

The Modbus TCP/IP protocol allows integration into any standard process control system.

On the large high-definition color touch screen power consumption, oil temperature as well as inlet and outlet pressure curves can be displayed and therefore easily be supervised. In addition, oil level and motor frequency are always in view.

All relevant parameters can be adjusted and monitored allowing a perfect match to every process.

How do the PLUS vacuum pumps improve the efficiency and reduce the operating costs?

An integrated variable speed drive allows adjustments of the motor frequency. This leads to energy savings of up to 50% compared to unregulated vacuum pumps.

Different operating modes ensure that PLUS series vacuum pumps always run in optimum operating condition. In combination with the intelligent pressure control, ECO mode settings and the auto restart function further energy and cost savings are possible.

What is a variable speed drive and what are its benefits?

The variable speed drive allows adjustments of the motor frequency. This leads to significant energy savings compared to unregulated vacuum pumps.

Which process parameters can be controlled and monitored with the PLUS vacuum pumps?

On the large high-definition color touch screen power consumption, oil temperature as well as inlet and outlet pressure curves can be displayed and therefore easily be supervised. In addition, oil level and motor frequency are always in view.

All relevant parameters can be adjusted and monitored allowing a perfect match to every process.

Can the operating time of the PLUS vacuum pumps be determined and scheduled? And how does it work?

PLUS vacuum pumps have an integrated week planner, which allows to schedule the operating time of the PLUS vacuum pump day by day. The week planner can be accessed on the large high-definition color touch screen.

Can maintenance intervals be planned more precisely? And how does it work?

Yes, maintenance intervals can be planned more precisely.

The condition of the components, the event history and the running hours are recorded permanently. The required maintenance interval can thus be adjusted and indicated accordingly. As a result, service intervals can be longer and service costs can be reduced.

When does the vacuum pump give warnings or alarms?

For all relevant parameters warning and alarm thresholds are predefined, so the safety of the process and the vacuum pump is always ensured.

Warnings and alarms can be programmed for example if the oil temperature exceeds a certain level.
