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.

Productivity, efficiency and quality are the three watchwords for the new dawn of the industrial internet of things (IIoT).  Under the surface of the well-wired floor of the factory of the future are connected devices, configured to make IIoT a reality. Hank Graham, product manager for single board computers (SBC) and electronics at Allied Electronics and Automation, sees the factory of the future as an industrial site digging its heels firmly into automation.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

The fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, builds off the computerization and digitization of previous shifts and employs artificial intelligence, IoT, cloud computing and remote dashboards that measure and monitor parameters and minute data points related to industrial operations.

To protect people from injuries caused by electricity, control panels that are used in the U.S. must be designed so that they ensure protection against direct contact. The U.S. standards therefore specify that the enclosure doors must be locked in accordance with specific guidelines, but that they must be accessible for maintenance and service by qualified personnel.In this series Siemens will provide two panel building tips articles for the remainder of 2020. Part 1 forcuses on Door Interlocking Requirements According to US Standards.

 

 

 

Texas Instruments recently introduced the industry’s first zero-drift Hall-effect current sensors. The TMCS1100 and TMCS1101 enable the lowest drift and highest accuracy over time and temperature while providing reliable 3-kVrms isolation, which is especially important for AC or DC high-voltage systems such as industrial motor drives, solar inverters, energy-storage equipment and power supplies.

 

 

 

High speed motors, whether they be permanent magnet synchronous, induction or synchronous reluctance, provide a high efficiency, high power density motor that is being increasingly utilized in applications such as wastewater treatment blowers, industrial chiller compressors or industrial heat pumps. In order to reliably and efficiently operate these motors, a VFD designed for the required high frequency output is needed.

 

 

 

Are you aware of the influence of ambient conditions such as heat, cold, and condensation that cause temperature rise in your industrial control panel? The appropriate designing of electrical control panels in terms of abnormal temperature is one of the biggest challenges towards the standard compliant electrical machinery equipment.

 

 

 

As the world reels from the immediate and secondary effects of the novel coronavirus pandemic, electronics manufacturers are struggling to enforce social distancing and protect their team members by finding ways to have fewer people in a working area at any given time.

 

 

 

Whether it is for hand sanitizer, shampoo ingredients, a medical additive, or any of a thousand other process steps in a thousand different industries, producing chemistries and other products in a modular platform is increasingly the norm. More and more frequently Optimation are seeing requests, and opportunities, for modular or skid-based production and manufacturing process projects.

The main objective of electrical facilities is to supply reliable power. To guarantee the power supply and the efficient and continuous management of the operations, a highly resistant and secure electrical installation is required.

Electrical equipment is potentially hazardous and, in the unfortunate case of failure or anomaly, the consequences can be fatal for both people and properties. This is why it is important to adopt a holistic approach in which personnel, devices, and monitoring systems are integrated.
