Vinyl Electrical Tapes – Guide and How to select

By |2018-10-05T15:51:58+00:00August 30th, 2018|Cable and Joints|

This article is part of ‘The Guide to Electrical Tape’ Vinyl electrical tapes are the most commonly available tapes that are resistant to abrasion and puncture as well as chemical and hash fluid. They are often used for Jacketing and Mechanical Protection of the cables. There are 6 factors that you should consider

How to choose the right Electrical Tapes for the applications

By |2018-10-05T12:57:25+00:00August 28th, 2018|Cable and Joints|

Not all electrical tapes are the same, choosing the right tape for your application is essential for the quality of the electrical supply and the safety of the site. Here we explain the common types of electrical tapes and their purposes. The most common types are the Vinyl tape, the Mastic tapes, and the Rubber tapes; using a combination of these tapes will help to achieve the desired result.

How to test for the Absence of Voltage? What is the best methods?

By |2018-06-27T18:49:30+00:00June 14th, 2018|Control Panels|

We have outlined the different testing methods for the Absence of Voltage and go through the pros and cons of each method. The most efficient and safest method is the Absence of Voltage Tester device that does the check automatically that is both accurate and prevent human error. This article is part of The Guide to

What is Absence of Voltage Testing and why do I need to test for it?

By |2018-06-27T15:32:47+00:00June 12th, 2018|Control Panels|

Nobody wants to get an electric shock while working on the electrical panels especially when they think that it has been made safe; the Absence of Voltage Testing is explicitly designed to prevent this incident from happening. In this article, we will explain "what is the test?", the test standard, and its procedures.

A guide to ‘Short-Circuit Current Calculations’

By |2018-04-27T15:30:02+00:00April 27th, 2018|Uncategorized|

'What will the value of the short-circuit current be?'. The short-circuit current value on the first circuit breaker depends on the size of the transformer and the length and size of the cable from the transformer to that Circuit Breaker. Here is a document explaining how to calculate the short-circuit current.

MCCB: How to safely choose a new MCCB for replacement?

By |2018-05-04T16:16:47+00:00April 24th, 2018|MCCB - Molded Case Circuit Breakers, Power Distribution|

Do not simply replace an MCCB with one that has the same rated current. The most important consideration is the Ultimate short-circuit breaking capacity (Icu). Incorrectly replacing MCCB will result in dangerous consequences. In this video, we will guide you through the step by step process to do this.

Fireproofing Cables Trunk

Electrical power is important part of our day-to-day life that’s some time taken for granted. Almost everything need power; we sometime forget how it is quietly transmitted across thousands of kilometers from generating stations to home, schools, hospitals, refineries, through essential infrastructure: the conductors. To enable efficient transmission over long distance, the power is

How can we tell if the MCCB needs to be changed

By |2018-05-04T16:16:24+00:00February 22nd, 2018|MCCB - Molded Case Circuit Breakers, Power Distribution|

The Molded Case Circuit Breakers have a limited lifetime when subjected to the short circuit faults. So how can you tell that it is time to change your MCCB to ensure proper protection of your electrical system? In this article, we will discuss 3 methods of inspection to determine the right time to change your MCCB.
