Oil rigs, mines, wind farms, and industrial manufacturing facilities are often located in remote,
Purchasing products for use in a harsh environment can be a tricky business. The components need to be protected
but it is also important not to overkill the protection and waste costs.

Circular connectors are finding increased usage in today's interconnected industrial electronic
equipment. As a result of this increase in connectorization, there is an ever growing appetite for
connectors that can withstand a wide range of use and "abuse".
Quantification of the arcflash
hazard level and labeling procedures are a major portion of this effort.

There is no
acceptable level of downtime and no one can afford to replace expensive machinery years
before its predicted lifespan—not when profit margins are razor thin and competition is
breathing down your neck from all four corners of the world.
In this era of increasing industry and
government standards, the demands on calibration laboratories are growing. Whether it's an in-house cal lab or a field unit, the pressure is on to conduct more calibrations in a short period of time while still maintaining a high degree of accuracy.
Year after year, a significant number of power sensors are damaged because of users' carelessness or ignorance. Knowing the proper usage and precautions for power sensors and meters would spare you inconvenience and downtime required for repair.
In the process of optimizing control functions, small adjustments in microcontroller firmware can produce significant improvements in embedded system performance.
Coming up with the right values for gains, offsets, delays, hysteresis values and PWM parameters can be time consuming, but using the right tools can speed the process.
When the cost of a human error can easily cost your company millions of dollars or more in lost revenue, minimizing errors
is critical. When it also happens to be a nuclear power plant, the stakes are even higher.
