Transformer-isolated intrinsically safe barriers integrate marshalling, signal conversion/isolation, and intrinsic safety in one module. Knife disconnects and testpoints are designed into a base terminal block which accepts pluggable electronics for input and output signals from hazardous and safe areas. The process-interface terminal block is 12.4 mm wide and can be DIN-rail mounted. Bridging is possible using insertion bridges. The galvanically (transformer)-isolated electronic plugs are coded for both hazardous and safe area applications.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
