Motor systems are a critical operation in almost every plant & can account for 60 to 70% of all electrical energy used in the plant, so understanding the efficiency and performance can result in energy savings & extended life of the motor.
In today's world, it’s not just cabling issues to deal with, as communication technicians also have to determine if it’s a service issue before determining the cause of a connection problem. But help is at hand with Microscanner2 from Fluke Networks.
Thermal imagers maximize operations and safety in many industrial environments, but also increase building efficiency. With energy prices continually rising, the building is an asset with a rising value that needs to be preserved or improved.
For network cable testing there are three kinds of test tools, each designed with a specific set of features depending on a particular fieldwork task. In this article the three are explained and how they differ from each other.
Typically buildings represent about 40% of total energy consumption and costs are continually rising, so monitoring becomes an essential aspect in being able to reduce the overall energy consumption - if you can't measure it you can't improve it.

Keeping the production line or plant running is critical to any business, as any unplanned downtime, lost productivity or delays can be very costly to the business, this article looks a various T&M products to keep your motion control system running.
Current measurement is simple when you can break the circuit or clip a clamp around the current carrying conductor, but in the case of a multi-layer PCB this is not always practical or possible, unless you have an I-prober form Aim-TTi
Minimizing the heat within any printed circuit board design is critical, as excess temperature can reduce the operating life of the components. Fluke RSE Series infrared cameras enable you to pin-pointing the issue without making physical connections
As well as not needing to carry around multiple instruments to perform installation tests, having a single instrument like the RS Pro Multifunction tester, can help speed up testing and save you money.
