Simplifying Collaboration between Machines and Operators

Even though most factories would like to be fully automated, the initial financial investment often means it is not feasible. Instead, most factories adopt semi-automation, whereby humans make the decisions and the repetitive, high-risk work is performed by machines. This working model improves efficiency and reduces risks. Read on to discover how Moxa’s solution helped a factory take their first step towards automation.

<![CDATA[Crompton Instruments - Avnet and TE Connectivity: Helping startups get their ideas to market]]> https://www.colterlec.com.au/news/postavnet-and-te-connectivity-helping-startups-get-their-ideas-to-market https://www.colterlec.com.au/news/postavnet-and-te-connectivity-helping-startups-get-their-ideas-to-market Thu, 09 Aug 2018 00:00:00 GMT Time is critical in the increasingly competitive IoT space. This is why London-based IoT-innovator Hanhaa turned to Avnet to get its smart parcel-tracking solution to market quickly.

ParceLive is a live parcel-tracking service that allows users to determine the exact location and condition of their parcel in real time anywhere in the world. During the design process, Hanhaa encountered a number of issues, particularly with the prototype solution’s chip antenna, which would not allow operation with the granularity required to reach full market potential. Having worked with Hanhaa from very early in the design process, Avnet quickly understood that Hanhaa’s complex RF requirements needed the attention of a specialist and put the company in touch with world-leading connectivity and passive component vendor TE Connectivity. Engineers from TE worked with Hanhaa and upgraded the chip antenna to an embedded antenna, resulting in a solution that could deliver tracking performance that had been previously unattainable. The ParceLive solution now integrates passive antenna arrays that can enable GPS readings even from inside a building.

Due to its close collaboration with Avnet, Hanhaa was able to take ParceLive from concept to prototyping and design enhancement, through to volume production and commercial launch in fewer than 1000 days, which is a very fast path to market for a start-up or small business.

“Start-ups can speed IoT product development through collaboration with innovative distributors such as Avnet,” said Nigel Ward, president of Avnet Abacus. “We can strongly leverage the advantages of the Avnet connected ecosystem, which provides the necessary infrastructure and resources required by small businesses to get to market quickly. We can also take a holistic approach to the design and production cycle providing technical insight and advice, in conjunction with our leading vendors, to help start-ups connect up the dots significantly faster to create their best possible product.”

The IIoT has gained momentum due to its promise of increased efficiencies and better access to the information needed to make critical business decisions.

Companies that embraced the movement have transitioned their businesses and technologies from centralized servers and PCs to distributed cloud-based server systems, which bring advanced analytics and business intelligence to where it’s needed most.

However, for those who have yet to make the transition, there are likely many questions around how to take the IIoT from a theoretical concept to something more practical. To help with this, we’ve broken down the IIoT into three main pillars to illustrate how data can be collected from your edge devices and transferred to cloud-based platforms so it can be made actionable.

<![CDATA[nVent Erico - A Beginner’s Guide to Lightning Risks and Protection Methods]]> https://www.colterlec.com.au/news/postnvent-erico-a-beginners-guide-to-lightning-risks-and-protection-methods https://www.colterlec.com.au/news/postnvent-erico-a-beginners-guide-to-lightning-risks-and-protection-methods Thu, 09 Aug 2018 00:00:00 GMT Scientists and scholars alike have had a longstanding fascination with lightning. Of course, the most famous student of this natural phenomenon, Benjamin Franklin, was also one of the first to study and document the dangers and effects of lightning. His research dates back to the 1700s.

Technology and knowledge have evolved since Franklin’s time, when the only method of protection was a simple lightning rod. Today, electrical engineers know the need for full facility lightning protection to defend everything from the structure, to personnel, to valuable electronic equipment, from strikes.

Need a refresher? Read below to learn the basics of lightning risks, as well as common lightning protection methods to lessen damages.

3 Types of Lightning Risks

Before implementing a lightning protection system, it’s important to understand the risks associated with lightning. Three types of lightning risks that can cause injury or facility downtime.

  1. Step potential: An indirect lightning strike that is potentially lethal. Step potential refers to the ground current that occurs when the lightning strike dissipates into the earth, which can be transmitted into a person in the area of the strike.
  2. Touch potential: A direct lightning strike that is captured and carried by a metallic object, which a person comes into contact with directly. Commonly occurs in fences and support towers.
  3. Side flashing: During a lightning flash, the rapid rate of current rise can cause down conductors or natural objects to flashover to a nearby person or object.

While no system can completely ward off the lightning risks above, proper protection systems can help safeguard your facility, personnel and electronic devices.

Basic Lightning Protection Systems 

In general, a lightning protection system must perform the following in order to be considered effective: 

  • Intercept lightning flashes
  • Conduct the lightning current to the earth
  • Dissipate the current to the earth
  • Create an equipotential bond to prevent potential differences between the system, structure and internal circuits

Furthermore, a lightning protection system is categorized into two parts. The first is the external lightning protection system, which intercepts, conducts and dissipates the lightning flash to the earth. Second, the internal system that prevents flash over within the structure using equipotential bonding. 

Also note that while lightning protection systems are generally implemented via a network of bonded air terminals and down conductors, alternative systems that capture the strike and conduct the discharge through an insulated conductor to the ground are available, such as the ERICO SYSTEM 3000.

The sensor values change relatively slowly and sometimes have to be transmitted over several kilometers to a control center. To avoid the effort and expense of cable installation, wireless systems specifically designed for extensive systems present a viable alternative.
A simulation is used to determine whether a wireless connection will work, will not work or needs to be tested. The prognoses are so precise that a radio test is often unnecessary. The simulation takes into account altitude data, radio performance and surface properties.

The coordinates of all stations in the network are required. The documentation includes recommendations for locations, antennas, and mast heights. This service is available internationally and a fee applies for networks with more than ten stations.

To share hands-on expertise during Refrigerant Week 2018]]> https://www.colterlec.com.au/news/post-we-are-back-to-share-hands-on-expertise-during-refrigerant-week-2018 https://www.colterlec.com.au/news/post-we-are-back-to-share-hands-on-expertise-during-refrigerant-week-2018 Sun, 15 Jul 2018 00:00:00 GMT As the price of high Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants increases and regulations become tougher, Danfoss is continuing its Refrigerant Week initiative to help industry professionals and decision-makers make the transition to lower-GWP refrigerants. Refrigerant Week, an official affiliate of Climate Week NYC, will take place from September 24th to 28th and feature webinars, tools, resources, and local events aimed at promoting and enabling lower-GWP solutions.

A global partnership with industry professionals and policy makers

The Montreal Protocol and Kigali Amendment require the progressive phase-down of high-GWP refrigerants used in HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration). Refrigerants are a key concern, impacting resources and the bottom line in the long term.

Refrigeration and air conditioning professionals need the right information, tools, and technology to comply with these new regulations and aid them in the refrigerant transition. They also need guidance when it comes to specifying, installing, servicing, and using available solutions. All of this and more will be covered during Refrigerant Week 2018.

“Even though countries have different timeframes, switching to more climate-friendly refrigerants is a global concern,” says Jürgen Fischer, President of Danfoss Cooling. He continued, “The HVACR sector can make important contributions even now with energy efficient and low-GWP equipment, and it’s here that Danfoss can make a significant impact. We believe that by providing industry expertise, product qualifications, in-depth training, and testing facilities to our customers and business partners, we can all keep moving in the same direction. Refrigerant Week is a big part of that.”


Refrigerant Week: A milestone moment for refrigerants

Refrigerant Week brings the use of alternative refrigerants and energy efficiency into focus as solutions that enable a sustainable cooling future. Through live webinars, local events hosted by business partners, downloadable and digital tools, and an online library of easy to access information, Danfoss aims to highlight the global and local impact of refrigerant regulations and agreements.

Last year, hundreds of companies from 50 countries participated in Refrigerant Week. According to a post-event survey, more than 80% of participants found the event helpful in their daily job. Danfoss is looking forward to engaging with even more companies, countries, and individuals around the world during Refrigerant Week 2018.
