articleicon1Overhead Line Galvanized Steel Wire Conductor Serviceability and Predicted Life to Replacement
The AEMC 6471 multi-function earth tester has been accepted by the majority of Australian power utilities as the preferred instrument for routine testing of distribution substation earth testing. The reason for its wide acceptance is due to many of its attributes but also it can be highly customised locally to suit each user’s unique requirements. The initial attraction of the 6471 is no doubt because it can test almost any type of distribution substation, city or rural, in-service without any disconnection of any part of the earth network. Read more here…



Fixed Type: Future Trend for Compact, Reliable & Eco-Friendly AIS switchgear
With the continuous evolution of superior vacuum technology there is hardly anything which can be maintained in the power path. If nothing is to be maintained then why withdraw the circuit breaker at all. This question resulted in evolution of fixed type breaker. With the advent of Vacuum technology the need for withdraw ability is no longer a mandatory requirement. This is because withdraw ability was necessary for maintaining the breaker operating mechanism and the power path of circuit breaker. Read more here…





Low Voltage Switchgear – No Live Work
Major companies and organisations of today have incorporated safety into their vision and mission statements, safety policies proclaiming “Zero Harm” and “No live work” are now common place. This has significantly impacted on the rate of electrical fatalities in Australia. The Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC) electrical fatality statistics show a reduction from 38 deaths in 2001 to 10 in 2017. Is that good enough? What more can be done to protect workers? One could not be blamed for thinking at times safety concerns have just gone too far. At other times you could not be blamed for thinking are others really serious about safety? Read more here…



Remote Motor Monitoring Over Ethernet
To prevent unexpected failures, many motors have a built in thermal overload. Some companies add vibration sensors to alert them when a motor is not behaving properly. However, there is another simple motor monitoring option to indicate when service is required. By using current sensing transducers and Ethernet I/O modules, remote motors located anywhere in your operation can be easily monitored. As motor bearings begin to wear, the motor must work harder creating a measurable increase in current draw to the motor. Read more here…
