  • Finding faults with voice and data communications

    For locating faults rapidly on voice and data communications installations, a time domain reflectometer (TDR) is likely an invaluable tool. Yet, all too often, TDRs fail to live up to their potential, largely as a result of the limitations inherent in older instruments.The latest generation of TDRs has effectively removed these limitations, making the new instruments more useful – and easier to use – than ever.

  • BLACK BOX Power over Ethernet in Industrial Applications

    The Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard, which was adopted in June 2003, enables users to power devices over Ethernet cabling. It was originally developed to provide both power and networking capability in areas where it was previously cost prohibitive or physically impossible to run electrical wiring. PoE has contributed to VoIP and wireless market growth because it simplifies the RF survey task: Access points can be easily moved because the requirement of locally-accessible AC power is removed.

  • Understanding Hazardous and Explosion-Protection Environments

    Explosions occur when a mixture of oxygen and explosive substances develop into explosive gases. When the concentration of a substance in air is within the lower and upper explosive limits the mixture can be ignited. To prevent an explosion one of three prerequisites must be eliminated. Making equipment ignition free and safe to install in an explosive environment is one solution.
