Electricity and Control April 2019Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is the new catchphrase in industrial automation. The concept and its benefits are presented in our opening article in the April feature on control systems and automation. We also consider the advantages of adopting a recognised IT platform and operating system, with expert support, to automate condition monitoring and optimise production uptime. We take a closer look at safety standards relating to low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies and the production of transformers and miniature substations to meet specific standards and applications.

Electricity and Control March 2019In this issue of Electricity + Control we look to the future of industry in terms of energy management and environmental engineering – and the real potential for green manufacturing – as well as the move towards mainstreaming of edge computing in Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things. At the same time, taking care of existing assets, attending to plant maintenance, safety and appropriate technologies for high risk processes and hazardous areas, remain fundamental to plant longevity and industry efficiencies. In his comment, Ian Jandrell highlights the risks of neglecting maintenance – the evidence is clear for all of us to see. With regard to equipment and instrumentation we focus on drives, motors + switchgear and temperature measurement.

Electricity and Control February 2019One of Iceland’s most active volcanoes, Hekla, has been quiet for the past 19 years. While this is good news for visitors to the crater rim, it makes geophysicists nervous because it could erupt at any minute. In the hope of warning people in advance, geophysicist Martin Möllhoff and his team have installed six seismometers that will detect tremors in the ground and alert visitors to danger. The installation required specific cables to undertake the work required and to survive the punishing environment. This fascinating article is the primary focus of Cables + Accessories.

Electricity and Control January 2019Industrial companies expect visibility into every aspect of new or upgraded plants, including their electrical control systems. In our first issue of Electricity + Control for 2019, we discuss how system integrators can bring intelligent packaged power that integrates better with smart manufacturing operations than traditional electrical control.

ElectricityandControl December 2018In the final issue of Electricity + Control for the year, we discuss i-Automation and the smart factory and explore mass flow measurement and the relevance of Coriolis technology. We also investigate the methods in which new technologies are making single-phase solar inverters smaller, cheaper and safer.
