NEWBURYPORT, Mass - Mersen, formerly Ferraz Shawmut, announces that it recently published a new Protection Intelligence Quotient (PIQ) Quiz on the new photovoltaic circuit protection UL standards. This is the latest quiz in an ongoing program which challenges participants to see if they're up to speed on the best practices in electrical safety.

With the educational PIQ program, solar power design engineers, specifiers, electrical professionals and equipment manufacturers discover how much they know about the hazards that can harm people, equipment and investments.

"We are clearly filling a need for circuit protection and safety information," said Stephen Colvin, Vice President of Marketing at Mersen. "Many visitors take the latest quiz, and then move on to take earlier archived quizzes on topics such as arc flash hazard protection, overvoltage protection, and selective coordination."
