Introducing the NHP Webinar Centre

NHP is proud of our regular events that give our customers opportunities to experience quality, face to face demonstrations and technical information.

While COVID-19 has changed the way we have to operate in the short-medium term, NHP is committed to ensuring that our customers continue to keep up to date with product innovations, so we have developed a series of virtual 'events' to keep you informed until we can see you again at events in the future.

Please find below a list of upcoming, live webinars that will be facilitated by our product experts on a range of topics. We are continuously updating this section, so please check back regularly for new additions to our schedule. Please also find below a catalogue of 'on demand' webinars that can be accessed at any time that is most convenient for you.

Upcoming Webinars

    Linear Speed Acceleration with Soft Starters
    Webinar Date & Time: 27 October 2021 at 11:00am - 12:00pm (AEDT)

    Given increasing costs and environmental awareness, energy conservation is a growing concern, and the need for energy efficiency throughout a plant or manufacturing floor is a priority. As a result, more attention is paid to motor starting methods as a cost saving to the bottom line. Using just enough energy to start and run motors helps to control the demand charges imposed by utility companies by reducing the amount of wasted energy.

    In this webinar we will discuss the use of Linear Speed Acceleration on SMC-50 Soft Starters from Rockwell Automation. You will discover how Linear Acceleration control offers the simplest and most consistent starting and stopping performance, whilst minimising electrical and mechanical stress on the motor and driven machine.
