With power, comes great responsibility. A panel builder who can effectively integrate ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) into a system can make the difference between life and death. Ground-fault circuit protection is one of the most effective preventative measures against electrical shock because it actively reacts to irregular electrical conditions, regardless of a worker’s qualifications or use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

IoT has steadily gained popularity in recent years with more users migrating to digitalized products and smart gadgets. As an increasing amount of IoT equipment comes online, many unsecured items will be vulnerable to remote software assaults. Inadequate security gives hackers the opportunity to brick and commandeer a device to help build botnets. These malware networks introduce unauthorized code, steal data, or exploit their hosts through some other means.

 

 

 

Electronics enclosures are used in countless test/analytics/measurement devices for many applications. This includes various instrument systems in Oil & Gas, Industrial & Power Control, Medical, Lab/Test, and Military designs. Serving all of these types of devices requires a wealth of cooling options for instrument cases.

Daisy chaining refers to a wiring scheme in which several devices, such as power supplies, are connected directly in series. This type of wiring is also referred to as "looping through". The English term “Daisy Chaining” is used colloquially, since the structure is vaguely reminiscent of a daisy chain. The principle can be used both to achieve a higher total current and to transmit analog signals or digital data.

Electrical control panels are an integral part of any automated manufacturing process. While control systems are a fundamental aspect of electrical engineering, many people aren’t aware of the key control panel components required to function safely and reliably.

No industry sector is exempt from the benefits of applying energy efficiency, whether it's individual products or complete solutions. This spans across a very broad spectrum – from replacing bearings that don’t work properly, causing the engine to run poorly and consume more electricity, to complex systems, such as solar panel and photovoltaic power generation systems.

Rugged and reliable – how Zytronic’s touchscreens enable safe refueling on remote sites.

PBUS-45-Littelfuse-AdvancedCharging-400.jpg

As the electrification of heavy-duty or commercial vehicles gains more acceptance, charging larger batteries than the ones in electric passenger cars increases in importance. Because time is money, especially in logistics, the preferred options are increasing charging power or assigning idle times for charging. These preferences result in three different charging scenarios.

 

 

 

 

Those of you in the food industry are already familiar with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)—a law that focuses on preventing contamination, rather than reacting to the problem after the fact. A big part of FSMA compliance has to do with the design of plant equipment, which includes the electrical components that provide power to manufacturing lines.

PBUS-45-Lovato-NewContactors-400.jpg

The new contactors are rated 160A, 195A and 230A three-phase for motor control applications, and 250A, 275A and 350A in AC-1 category. They are available in both 3 and 4 pole versions.

They replace contactor codes 11B…, of similar ratings which have demonstrated their reliability and robustness over the years. The new size is more compact and efficient, in response to market demand.

Designed with special attention to the dimensions, the 3-pole contactors are just 105mm wide, like the equivalently rated moulded case circuit breakers (MCCB), so the starters are more compact and easier to be connected.
