Variable-frequency drives (VFDs) are used in a number of industrial applications to save energy by controlling the speed of motors. VFDs are important because electric motor-driven systems (EMDSs) account for about 45 per cent of all electricity consumption. In this white paper, Amplicon shows how industrial Ethernet gateways can be used to create a communication gateway between VFDs and PLCs that is easy to install and maintain.
Dr Susanne Dröscher discusses the pros and cons of available detector technologies.
This white paper from Man and Machine discusses optimising the engineering, project and maintenance units of processing plants using the latest technology innovations.
In this white paper from Pacer, Dr. Susanne Dröscher discusses the role of laser power monitors
This white paper offered by Man and Machine will outline a high-level framework for implementing BIM and the key elements that every successful implementation must consider.
The guide from Intertronics, authored by DYMAX, enables customers to better understand the production savings possible from light curing. It discusses the choice of coating, based on the end-use environment, industry and customer specifications, and printed circuit board topography and potential shadowed areas.
Application note: concentration measurement of sodium hydroxide solutions by refractive index download
This article explains why Abbemat refractometers from Anton Paar are ideal for determining the concentration of sodium hydroxide solutions.
This paper examines USSOCOM’s emerging requirements for new and updated submersible equipment, with a focus on the factors that qualify such equipment for operation in combat environments
Calibration and the maintenance of process site instrumentation is vital for a number of reasons, such as to ensure that production output is achieved within set quality parameters and to meet regulatory requirements. This guide from GE Measurements discusses collecting the data, calibration software, and the types of software available.
Bringing the products that your customers want to market at the right time and at the lowest cost is the most basic goal of product development. Yet with limited budgets, people and time, many organisations are hard-pressed to streamline their product portfolio processes, despite the fact that doing so has repeatedly proven to advance that very goal. Keeping the status quo, however inefficient, is sometimes all a product organisation can manage. Often, there are simply too many products ...
In this white paper, Planview takes a look at a common issue facing many companies: insufficient or unreliable data. Your performance predictions are only as good as the underlying data. But many companies still rely on manual spreadsheets as their only means of capturing and storing data. Is your company caught in the status quo of spreadsheet hell or is there something better? Is it worth the effort to switch to a different tool for data you can trust?
This checklist from Showers & Eyebaths Services is a summary of the provisions of ANSI Z358.1-2009 relating to eye or eye/face wash and safety showers. Please refer to the standard for a complete listing of the provisions.
As the saying goes, ‘garbage in, garbage out’. This truism is every bit as applicable in thermography as it is in computer data mining. The difference is that the inaccurate data that leads a thermographer to a false-negative conclusion could result in a multimillion-dollar catastrophic failure of a company’s electrical distribution system. In fact, the implications to personnel safety, plant assets and production downtime make the results of transmissivity errors more like toxic waste ...
As OMICRON electronics explains in this article, modern protection and automation systems for electrical power systems are increasingly using communication protocols to transfer information. In the mid-term, more and more hybrid systems and systems distributed across large distances will be implemented.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) was established in 1896 and has become the world’s leading advocate of fire prevention. The influence of its 300 codes and standards are evident in buildings, products and practices throughout the world. NFPA codes are adopted through a broad consensus of experts, and have resulted in some of the world’s most referenced and respected codes. This white paper from IRISS explores NFPA 70, also known as the National Electric Code (NEC), which ...
