Working WIth Electrical Electricity

Electrical equipment means any equipment whether it is in the home or in a company that is run by electricity. For the home, this includes both major appliances and small appliances. In a company, this includes power tools as well as any machine that is used in the company. This also includes air condition units whether it is industrial or in the home. The list of equipment that uses electricity is a very long one because it encompasses equipment that uses electricity no matter what the size of the equipment.Most of the time when thinking of electrical equipment we are thinking of circuit breakers, transformers, the electric meter, and the parts that make up light switches. We even think of certain clamps and cables as being part of the equipment that is used in installing electricity in a building. It takes many pieces both large and small to bring power into a building.

One of the most import things to understand when working with electrical equipment is to make sure that the power is off before you start working on it. If you have to work on a piece of electrical equipment the best thing to do first is to unplug the equipment. If you make it a habit to unplug everything first then you do not have to worry about the currents that are running to the equipment. It is very easy to be electrocuted if you are not careful. Electricity is not something you can play with as it can be deadly.

There is also tools with which you can check the power running to the electrical equipment. One of these tools is a multimeter. There are two types of multimeters analog and digital. The digital meter has a lot more functions built into it than the analog meter has. These metes check for the voltage, the current, and the resistance that is running either to or from the equipment. When using the meter it is important to follow the manufacturer’s directions on how to use it. This will not only protect your meter so that it lasts longer but will also protect the equipment you are working on.

Electrical equipment consists of two different types of components active and passive. The active components are the components that rely on energy in order to run. The active component transforms the energy into power and includes transistors and triode vacuum tubes, and tunnel diodes. The passive components can increase the voltage they cannot turn the energy into power. The parts of a passive component are capacitors, resistors, and transformers.

If you need work done on your electrical equipment, it is best to hire a professional. A professional has been trained in working with electricity, and knows how dangerous it can be. They are trained to take the necessary precautions, in order to keep themselves safe from harm. If you do not know or understand how the electricity running to your equipment works you could seriously hurt yourself or someone else.

Protection Devices

We supply protection devices, which protect electrical power systems from faults. Our devices are designed to isolate faulted parts of the system from the rest of the electrical network to prevent the rest of the system from getting affected. 

Communication Products

We provide sophisticated, quality communication products to assist energy providers and utilities address energy issues. Our cutting edge solutions improve asset management, metre security, energy efficiency and more.

Fault Path Indicators  

Our Fault Path Indicators provide transient data to indicate areas of the network that are ill-performing so that utility can plan maintenance to reduce future interruptions.

Voltage Regulators  

Voltage Regulators  

We provide Toshiba Regulators which are used in distribution lines and replace three-phase regulators. These regulators are used to maintain and regulate the load voltage in long lines, strategic points or substations.
