White paper: ￼Becoming the Factory of the Future – How to Prepare Now for the Industrial Internet of Things download
The Internet is the prevailing medium of digital communication worldwide. However, the concept of using instant, pervasive, and globally connected data over the Internet for the benefit of industrial manufacturing is still in its theoretical stages, with few Internet-friendly industrial technologies actually available in the market to put the concept into practice.
Mouser Electronics is stocking S24SP DC/DC converters from Delta Electronics/Power. Based on an industry-standard footprint and pinout, the S24SP series consists of high-efficiency, single-output DC/DC converters available in 40W and 60W models with efficiencies of up to 93 per cent.
When discussing the lifting industry, we need to consider devices for lifting products weighing just a few kilograms through to those capable of lifting loads weighing hundreds of tons, the scope of products is vast and most importantly this ensures a large selection of specialist devices for many uses.
Corona and arcing activities on brand new installations are indications of inadequate system design such as: cables’ diameters’ size, pole height, correct clearance between phases, mismatching grading rings and so on. DayCor can easily spot such instances of inadequate design and display the exact faulty location.
Technical article: Corona detection download
Often, the first question that people interested in buying a thermal imaging camera ask is: ‘how far can I see?’ This is a very reasonable question to ask, but it defies any simple answer.
The destructive nature of corona makes it a serious consideration in metal-clad switchgears. Moreover, corona causes most of the flashovers occurrences and explosion. Corona within switchgear cabinets is created due to electrical breakdown of air resulting from ionisation processes of gases that are triggered by local high electrical stress.
Application note: Cameras provide video imaging of light spots generated by corona in rotating machines download
Cameras superimpose the image of corona on the test object and therefore allow determining the position of the corona and its possible cause.

Today there is another technology that has also found its origin in military applications, finding its way in to many useful civilian applications. It is a technology that will not only change our lives, but it will save lives as well. The technology is called: thermal imaging.
Global competition and market dynamism are driving change in the process industry. New global strategies, mergers and takeovers, investments and spin-offs are all part of the change in structure.
The demand for power continues to grow. Experts predict an increase in global power consumption of around 60 per cent by 2030. Industrialisation in the emerging markets and changes to power concepts in industrialised nations involving an increased amount of renewable energies form the background to the paradigm shift: smart processes and new technologies for generation, distribution and consumption are gaining in importance.
Improving the life-cycle costs and efficiency of impressed current cathodic protection systems download
This paper evaluates the suitability of 21st century technology for the improvement of performance and efficiency of impressed current cathodic protection systems and explores the opportunities that these technologies present. Current issues such as energy efficiency, servicing costs and obsolescence are analysedt o identify the real benefits that may be achieved with these technologies. The applicable risks of applying the new technology are assessed and a case is made for the fact ...
