Workers who carry out work in which they are exposed to the risks of electricity must know the dangers to which they are subjected and the preventive measures to avoid as many accidents as possible. For this, it is necessary to comply with the security measures established by the regulations and apply the appropriate recommendations [...]

What is Energy Quality?

By |2020-10-26T09:21:45+00:00October 26th, 2020|Cable, Energy|

Power quality is the ability of the electricity supply company to provide the networks and their consumers with optimal service without interruptions, surges, erratic equipment operations, voltage variations and deformations caused by harmonics in the network. Types of Disturbances In practice, electrical networks present a series of alterations or disturbances that alter the quality [...]

Characteristics of a Clamp Meter

By |2020-10-26T09:34:59+00:00October 26th, 2020|Cable, Energy|

Resistance - Resistance is measured in ohms (Ω). Resistance values ​​can vary widely, from a few milliohms (mΩ) in the case of resistance between contacts, to trillions of ohms in the case of insulators. Most current clamps measure down to 0.1 Ω. When the measured resistance is higher than the upper limit of the [...]

Clamp Meter – What is it and what is it for?

By |2020-10-26T09:38:16+00:00October 26th, 2020|Cable, Energy|

What is a clamp meter? A clamp meter is an electrical tester that combines a voltmeter with a clamp-type current meter. The clamp meter is a very useful instrument specially designed to measure AC / DC currents that allows the measurement of currents in live conductors without the need to interrupt the circuit. It [...]

Goals and types of the grounding system

By |2020-10-26T09:46:57+00:00October 26th, 2020|Cable, Energy|

Limit the tension that metallic masses present with respect to the ground Provide the discharge point for the housings, frame or installations. Ensure that non-current parts, such as equipment frames, are always at ground potential, even in the event of a failure in insulation. Provide an effective means of unloading feeders or equipment prior [...]

The importance of grounding

By |2020-10-26T10:02:34+00:00October 26th, 2020|Cable, Energy|

In any electrical installation it is vital to take into account the importance of grounding. There are mainly two types of protections that depend on grounding in a basic way for their correct operation. These are protection against transient overvoltage (protection of equipment), and differential protection against indirect contacts (protection of people). The effects [...]

5 Good practices for energy management in industries
