Once electrical panels are installed, companies can face a number of ongoing issues and challenges, from monitoring and testing, to component failures, and cybersecurity worries. A holistic view of the panel landscape is a prudent way to alleviate these concerns, and to minimise future downtime.
Providing a solution for automation within a hazardous location can be a complex and expensive challenge. A PLC that has intrinsically safe (I.S.) input and output modules can represent a very elegant solution that also can save time, money and space.
Today’s network users want more data capacity and less latency. The best choice is to scale the transmission capacity in the existing optical networks using dark fibre solutions, such as grey transceivers and WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology.
The continued development of technologies to transmit, receive and condition radio waves at higher frequencies, alongside the licensing of higher frequency bandwidths to accommodate huge increases in data traffic, provides reliable access to high-speed, high-volume data communications.
