Vimpex's Hydrosense water leak detection system has been installed in Dublin Airport’s new Visual Control Tower (VCT) to protect the new state-of-the-art facility from water ingress, which could seriously damage electrical, communication and computer networks.
Designing electrical panels has become increasingly complex and demanding for panel builders. With challenges like decreasing energy consumption and solution size – coupled with increasing productivity – integrating reliable terminal blocks into the panel design is essential. With the right terminal block solution, panel builders can increase the safety and functionality of their panel designs.
Supercomputers and data centres operate very much behind the scenes, yet they play an important role in many aspects of our lives. They are used to perform complex scientific or engineering calculations, predict weather patterns and climate change, and even model the spread of viruses and pandemics.
When REO UK opened its doors in 1989, it did so knowing that stable electrical supplies would be vital to an increasingly electrified society. However, the company could not have predicted exactly how integral effective electrical engineering and electronic design would become to industry and society. Over three decades later, Managing Director Steve Hughes reflects on the changing nature of electrical design and the challenges ahead.
DIN-Rail Power supplies are found in almost every industrial process control system. During the conversion from AC mains to lower DC power outputs, switch-mode power supplies produce high voltages and currents that, if incorrectly designed, may cause sparks and generate excess heat through inefficient design topologies.
