R 5 PLUS – Proven Rotary Vane Technology for Industry 4.0

The fully connected Busch R 5 PLUS series vacuum pump brings the proven Busch rotary vane vacuum technology to the next level. With advanced control and monitoring functionalities, our R 5 RA 0760 A PLUS is ready for Industry 4.0.
 

Features

  • Operating data and the condition of the components are recorded permanently
  • Data can be accessed directly on the built-in display or transferred via a Modbus TCP/IP client/server protocol
  • Intuitive menu structure on the large high-definition color display
  • Remote control of the vacuum pump possible
  • Large pumping speed range thanks to a variable speed drive


Operating Modes

Users can choose between constant speed mode or pressure control mode, making the vacuum pump exceptionally energy-efficient.

Constant speed mode:
For processes with constant vacuum demand, it is recommended to leave the R 5 PLUS running at constant speed.

Pressure control mode:
For processes with changing vacuum demand over time, the pressure control mode is the ideal choice. In this case the R 5 PLUS adjusts the rotational speed according to the required vacuum level. Once this vacuum level has been achieved, the R 5 PLUS continues to run at a minimum speed, enabling it to respond to a sudden need for increased vacuum demand and leading to further energy savings.

Frequently Asked Questions


The R 5 PLUS is our first fully connected vacuum pump. It enhances the proven Busch rotary vane vacuum technology with control, condition monitoring and communication.

This makes the R 5 PLUS ready for Industry 4.0.
 


The fully connected R 5 PLUS series vacuum pumps bring the proven Busch rotary vane 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 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.
 


An integrated variable speed drive allows adjustments of the motor frequency from 35 to 60 Hz. This leads to energy savings of up to 50% compared to unregulated vacuum pumps.

Different operating modes ensure that R 5 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.
 


The variable speed drive allows adjustments of the motor frequency from 35 to 60 Hz. This leads to significant energy savings compared to unregulated vacuum pumps.

The R 5 PLUS has an integrated week planner, which allows to program the operating time of the R 5 PLUS day by day. The week planner can be accessed on the large high-definition color screen.
 


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. Service intervals can thus be longer.

As a result, service costs can be reduced.
 


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.
