After buzzing Industry 4.0 all over the media by all OT and IT experts, today, a few key concepts seem to unveil the potential that the industry believes is behind Industry 4.0. These include: Smart Machines, Smart Factory, cyber physical systems, Everything-as-a-Service and a few technologies like OPC UA, cloud and data analytics. Clearly, they are the innovation drivers and must-haves for every vendor of automation products that want to be recognized as leaders or challengers. Sooner or later they will become standards and used by followers and niche players, but the key question for the market of automation suppliers is not who is first in developing and providing all the nice concepts and technologies, but who is creating and combining them in the right way so that they can be turned into new revenue streams. We keep in mind that competitive advantages can be achieved through increasing operational efficiency, but the better way is through strategic uniqueness. Companies which ar

Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available solution categories and application guidance based on experience in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities and provides tools that help users develop effective protection strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.

Keeping aging switchgear performing at optimum performance levels can be challenging. When it comes to the reliability of an electrical distribution system, it’s not a question of if a system component will malfunction, but when. Electrical equipment ultimately degrades and reaches the end of its useful life, no matter how much maintenance is performed. And, with the advancements in the design of the new circuit breakers, those with older technology are no longer considered sustainable solutions. Plant managers and engineers must ensure continuity of operations and develop a plan to replace or upgrade aging switchgear. Facilities without a properly-implemented strategy put operations at risk that could lead to safety issues, equipment damage and/or downtime.

When it comes to worker safety, efficiency and production, nothing is faster than right now. Organizations across various energy segments — oil, gas, petrochemical, electric utilities, water utilities and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communications solution devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage, poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions. The power of now puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when communication slows, operation slows. Citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, clean running water and lights that turn on when they flip the switch. Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for energy workers day-in and day-out. So workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are not wasted and efficient operations are maintained. So energy companies can continue to exceed expectations. Unified communicati

In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance, smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.

Our industry has made numerous technological advances designed to protect homeowners, businesses and electrical workers. That makes every fatal electrocution in the home all the more distressing. Between 2010 and 2013, the U.S. saw an estimated average of 48 electrocution fatalities associated with consumer products per year, with large and small electric appliances chief among them1. Tragedies like these can be avoided, especially when the ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) technologies needed to prevent dangerous events are readily available. As the principle NEMA representative at the National Electrical Code (NEC) Code-Making Panel Two, I saw public input asking for increased GFCI protection for the home during the 2017 code cycle. The code panel expanded the GFCI requirement for facilities other than dwelling units as part of section NEC 210.8(B). However, residential standards improvements were sidelined.

Code updates happen for one main reason: safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety for service entrance panels to a new level. The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However, barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not recognize them and accidentally throw them out—easily and often.

If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures. A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed to determine the current state and reliability of your electrical system. For more information on Power System Assessments, download our white paper, "Assessing the Health of a Facility's Electrical Power Distribution System".
