Engineering Web tips

In October, we chose to focus on the "Engineering Web tips" category.

We thought it was the best choice in order to remind everybody that, as a community, we should keep in mind the importance of helping and sharing knowledge such as tips.

Here are 3 examples of what you can find in this category:

1. Sourcing of Design Solutions and Products for Engineers

2. Save time and money by choosing the right cooling system for your electrical enclosures for FREE

3. Importance of Blogs and Social Media to Engineers

If you want to publish an article in the "Engineering Web tips " category, you can send us a mail.

You're even allowed to post directly on the forum and write about whatever you want (debate, tutorial, product review, observations, your own experience, etc.)!

Thanks in advance for your active contribution to our community,

As you may have noticed, our forum keeps growing fast:

  • 17427 members and over 1000 topics!
  • As the number of topics keeps growing fast, don't hesitate to use the search engine, at the top left of the forum window, to check if there is a topic in relation to a subject you are interested in.

    Welcome to our newcomers: shashi ranjan, AMOAH RICHARD, santhosh, Endwell and Adrian.ran!

    Lighting systems for substations and plants (LV and MV)

    "I am sure nobody would want to grope around energized equipment, rotating shafts, variable drives, and power tools in the dark or dim light. Illumination is vital for all industries.

    The risk is injury and death. For this reason, it is important to install proper lighting systems in all sections."

    This article is all you need to know about substations and plants' lighting systems according to Marvin M., one of our dear members. Do you see anything to add?

    Common non-conducting materials used in cable construction

    Other than the core electrically conducting material, cable construction consists of non-conducting materials for functionality and aesthetics.

    Insulators separate conductors to prevent short-circuits, as well as offer safeguard individuals. For this reason, the material must be able to contain the current within the required region. The common materials used include paper, rubber, and elastomers. Their individual properties are highlighted in this article...

    In August, we published an article about common electrically conducting materials used in electrical cables. Now discover the second part of it!

    Power equipment centers: features, applications, and benefits

    The primary purpose of cables is to provide a conduit for power transmission from the source to the end user.

    Over the years, engineers and scientists have worked tirelessly to get the best materials for functionality and project feasibility.

    The following article highlights the common conducting materials used for electrical cables. What do you think of it? Leave your impressions!
