Kadant Solutions Introduces EMO III™ Blue 2 Panel
AUBURN, Mass., October 26, 2017 – Kadant Solutions, a division of Kadant Inc. (NYSE: KAI), announced the launch of the EMO III Blue 2 panel. Since it was introduced in the late 1980’s, the EMO III electro-mechanical oscillator has set the standard for functionality and reliability in shower oscillation. The reversing, brushless DC motor heralded the beginning of an era of minimal maintenance and high reliability.
Today, Kadant Solutions announces the release of a new and updated control package to complement its most trusted actuator. The new control system builds on success by adding new control features, better diagnostics, and easier safety compliance.
According to Marcelo DeBoni, product manager for cleaning, “The new EMO III electro-mechanical oscillator has enhanced diagnostics, now with the ability to tell you which component or circuit has failed or has been wired incorrectly. The controller protects personnel, external equipment, the showered surface, and even the oscillator itself. Also, the new controller fits on the same mounting standoffs and has the same connector pattern as all of the previous EMO III electro-mechanical oscillators except for the SP panel.”
