We're a power-hungry industry. Electrical power, that is. As our technological diversity increases, our demand for power and reliance on power supplies follows.
While the manufacturer can provide a replacement supply, finding your own replacement may result in a savings.
While approaches using the sun, wind, sub-surface heating and water cause no pollution and little-to-no operational expense once installed, they have been relatively costly to deploy.
The cable technology is designed to reduce radiated ac magnetic fields in AV systems that induce noise in signal wiring.
Battery technology hasn't kept up with the advancements in technology of the myriad of portable devices available now. Wouldn't it be great to have an alternative power source that was easily portable (unlike a generator), that worked day or night (unlike solar cells)?
The first session -- How to Model a Power System -- will be held on March 31.
BTX will provide sales and support for the remote reboot and power management systems.
If you look closely at most power consumers you will find the majority use power with less-than-ideal efficiency; that is likely because over the last 100 years or more electric power has been easy to come by and, for the most part, cheap. There has been little if any economic incentive to maximize the efficiency of electrical usage.
It pays to take surveys, as one Staco Energy respondent discovered.
Surgex management will join the ESP team, and by late January all product manufacturing will be consolidated into ESP's facility in Zebulon, NC.
From generator and UPS back-up to alternative sources, facility power is often-overlooked but mission-critical.
Middle Atlantic Products has released a white paper titled Integrating Electronic Equipment and Power Into Rack Enclosures. The paper is available for download from
On the surface, three-phase operation may appear to be a lot more complicated than single-phase work.
As the quality of ac power continues to worsen, the only solution is to condition power before it reaches sensitive electronics.
The power generator used for broadcast facilities should be treated as an integral part of the broadcast system as far as maintenance is concerned.
William Weisinger Engineering Service Remote AC Relay Box: This relay box switches two (parallel) AC receptacles (about 5-10 amps) with a dry closure
When was the last time the lights went out at your radio station? Last summer? Last winter? A year ago? Depending on your luck or your good planning,
