Automobiles, aircraft, marine vehicles, uninterruptible power supplies and telecommunications hardware represent areas utilising series-connected battery stacks. These stacks of individual cells may contain many units. In such systems, it is often desirable to accurately determine each individual cell’s voltage. Obtaining this information in the presence of the high ‘common-mode’ voltage generated by the battery stack is more difficult than might be supposed.
In this white paper, Jim Wallace, associate director of the Seaward Group, offers an overview of the in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment and appliances. It is doubtful whether any single issue has raised as much discussion and debate in the electrical services industry as that provoked by portable appliance testing.
Before the IEC 62310, prior to 2008, there was no product standard for the ‘static transfer system’ (STS). The closest standard used by manufacturers was the IEC 62040 (uninterruptible power systems, or UPSs). Indeed it is a good reference, but the weak points are definitions and tests. This paper from Socomec explains why users should ask for IEC 62310-compliant STSs.
As this technical guide from Socomec UPS explains, an RS485 bus is defined by the standard EIA-TIA-485-A and the TSB-89-A application guidelines. A RS485 transceiver is from a standard point of view connected through three points on the network.
Sensing and/or controlling current flow is a fundamental requirement in many electronics systems, and the techniques to do so are as diverse as the applications themselves. This application note compiles solutions to current sensing problems and organises the solutions by general application type. These circuits have been culled from a variety of Linear Technology documents.
This paper from Omniflex evaluates the suitability of 21st-century technology for the improvement of performance and efficiency of impressed current cathodic protection (CP) systems and explores the opportunities that these technologies present. Current issues such as energy efficiency, servicing costs and obsolescence are analysed to identify the real benefits that may be achieved with these technologies.
Occasionally, Linear Technology is tasked with designing circuitry for a specific purpose. A group of these circuits is presented in this application note.
