Commercial Applications & Electrical Projects

Most Recent

  • What is Electromagnetism and its Applications?
    Electromagnetism is a branch of physics which deals with electricity and magnetism and the interaction between them. It was first discovered in the 19th century and has extensive application in today's world of physics.
  • Thermocouple Validation and Testing
    Thermocouples are non-adjustable measuring devices, so we cannot calibrate them. However, we can validate functioning for a range of temperature through using a thermocouple calibration bath.
  • IP Codes and Classifications
    The IPCODE (IP code) is used to stipulate the environmental protection applicable for specific equipment enclosures.
  • GE Amplidyne Motor Generator
    The GE Amplidyne 115 to 250 Volt Motor Generator is an electromechanical amplifier that was invented by Ernst Alexanderson during World War II. It consists of an AC motor that drives a DC generator with some alterations to enhance the available power gain.
  • Putting Electrical Safety into Practice around Swimming Areas
    Electrical safety is an important issue in working areas where water is used as a base element. We need to follow some precautions and instructions while enjoying swimming in a pool, operating a boat, or working around a dock.
  • Physics of a MRI
    The magnetic properties of the nuclei of atoms can be used to yield chemical information. The nuclear magnetic resonance phenomenon is the basis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, a technique extensively used in the medical radiology field.
  • Design Considerations for Radiant Heating Systems in Industrial Spaces
    Installing radiant heat systems in factories or industrial plants requires knowledge of the current and future uses of the space. Designs should be focused on producing optimal performance within minimal footprint.
  • Characteristics & Applications of SCR (Thyristors)
    Thyristors are solid-state semiconductor devices with four layers of alternating P and N-type material. In this article we cover the terminology used when dealing with Thyristors, their characteristics, and the basic "controlled rectification" application of SCRs.
  • Decoding the Demultiplexer
    A demultiplexer (demux) is the exact opposite of a multiplexer (mux). Let's learn about the concepts, use and design, and the difference between mux-demux pairs and encoder-decoder pairs.
  • Issues with Knob and Tube Wiring
    You've just bought an older house and found out that it has knob and tube wiring. You're wondering whether or not you should upgrade it. Read on for some help in making this decision.
