Jun 04, 2021 | Most of us are familiar with vibration; a vibrating object moves to and fro, back and forth. A vibrating object oscillates. We experience many examples of vibration in our daily lives. A pendulum set in motion vibrates. A plucked guitar string vibrates. Vehicles are driven on rough terrain vibrate, and geological activity can cause massive vibrations in the form of earthquakes. There are various ways we can tell that something is vibrating. We can touch a vibrating object and feel the vibration. We may also see the back-and-forth movement of a vibrating object. Sometimes vibration creates sounds that we can hear or heat that we can sense. In industrial plants, there is the kind of vibration we are concerned about: machine vibration. What is machine vibration? Machine vibration is simply the back and forth movement of machines or machine components. Any component that moves back and forth or oscillates is vibrating. Machine vibration can take various forms. A machine component may vibrate over large or small distances, quickly or slowly, and with or without perceptible sound or heat. Machine vibration can often be intentionally designed and so have a functional purpose At other times machine vibration can be unintended and lead to machine damage. Most times machine vibration is unintended and undesirable. Vibration monitoring allows the user to detect early signs of machine failure/deterioration. This allows the technician to replace or repair machinery before catastrophic system functional failure takes place.

Jun 03, 2021 | Many people don't realize the importance that a thermostat plays a comfortable temperature in their home. When the AC or heater don't seem to be working right, it is often the last thing people think to check. Like anything else, your thermostat can wear out over time, making your HVAC system unable to properly heat and cool your home.
Jun 03, 2021 | A thermocouple is a sensor used for measuring temperature. It comprises two dissimilar metal wires, which are connected at one end and joined to a thermocouple-thermometer or another thermocouple-capable device at the other end. When thermocouples are properly configured, they can provide temperature measurements over a wide temperature range.
Jun 02, 2021 | The traditional method of starting an AC induction motor "across the line" results in full voltage, current, and torque being applied immediately when the motor is started, and likewise, being removed immediately when the motor is stopped. While this is the most simple starting method, the high inrush current (often 6 to 7 times the motor's rated current) and peak starting torque can damage the motor, driven equipment, and product. Across the line starting also causes high peak power demand, which can trigger peak demand fees from the utility company. A soft starter can eliminate these problems by gradually increasing voltage to the motor terminals during startup, providing a controlled ramp-up to full speed. This lowers inrush current and controls starting torque, reducing mechanical shocks to the system and the product.
Jun 02, 2021 | Every year in the United States, about 2,000 people lose their lives in residential fires. In a fire, smoke and deadly gases tend to spread farther and faster than heat. That's one reason why most fire victims die from inhalation of smoke and toxic gases, not from burns. A majority of fatal fires happen when families are asleep because occupants are unaware of the fire until there is not adequate time to escape. A smoke alarm stands guard around the clock, and when it first senses smoke, it sounds like a shrill alarm. This often allows a family the precious, but the limited time needed to escape. About two-thirds of home fire deaths occur in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Properly installed and maintained smoke alarms are considered to be one of the best and least expensive means of providing an early warning of a potentially deadly fire and could reduce by almost half the risk of dying from a fire in your home.
Jun 02, 2021 | Signal conditioning is a process of data acquisition, and an instrument called a signal conditioner is used to perform this process.
