We all know that it is sometimes not so easy to choose the right signal isolator or signal converter to help solve important ground loop and signal conversion challenges as a lot of selection will depend on how much we understand the application. For example, we need to consider if the connecting instrument runs on 4-wire (mains-powered) or 2-wire (loop-powered). Continue reading
SURGETRAB surge voltage protection devices are for all commonly used standard signals that are installed directly to the field equipment. This type of installation saves time and money, and an additional connection box for accommodating surge voltage protection is no longer necessary.
This week is a very exciting week for me; something very nice was loaned to me from Germany. This new babies of mine (well, at least for these 2 months) are these 2 wireless vehicles.
During my last 4 years in Phoenix Contact, I attended several presentations on system cabling. I had since learnt that system cabling is very easy to install, it not only eliminates installation errors, more importantly, it saves times and money for the customers.

I’ve always emphasized the importance of using good english, whether it is written or spoken. This is especially true in a region like bustling Asia where so many different languages exist and yet many recognized the importance of English as a “business” language. This is the reason why you still see signs in English in China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia etc… even when these countries officially do not speak the English language. They know that in order to cater to visitors all over the world, the most commonly used language is English.
Can you imagine hundreds of bus couplers to be set up?
You’ll need to power ON and OFF the bus couplers and set the registers that you need to change. But infact, the works were finished in just one day and there were more than 300 pieces of bus couplers to be configured! Thanks to the snap-in power connectors of the couplers itself; it does save time for us to connect the power to the device every time we need to change to the next coupler to be configured.
