The key switch has become commonplace for automation engineers and technicians who maintain and support these systems and understand the importance of the little switch in overall device operation and affects the underlying process.
A whopping 90% or more of wind turbine fires originate in the nacelle. The nacelle contains the gear box, the generator, the controller, the low- and high-speed shafts, and the brake-and it (the nacelle) sits atop the tower.
More and more homeowners are requesting battery backup solutions as part of their solar power installations. With increased adoption of solar power, concerns about fire hazards are likely to grow. Are these concerns justified?
Renewable energy is rapidly emerging as an attractive choice for businesses and households alike. Any installation project poses potential safety risks. The goal is to minimize them to keep employees well-protected.
This challenge can be addressed effectively by means of an application-specific fire protection concept for stationary lithium-ion battery energy storage systems, such as the one developed by Siemens through extensive testing.
Energy's deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced. Coal is the worst. According to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Academy of Science.
Faulty connections during installation can lead to hot spots, and eventually to fires, faulty equipment either due to defects during the manufacturing process or due to damage or lack of maintenance, general degradation.
IMO Precision Controls will be exhibiting at Intersolar Europe booth B3.149. We will be exhibiting our two core solar safety products - the FireRaptor Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown solution, and the SI/SIM ranges of TRUE DC solar isolators.
Sun Xtender® Deep Cycle AGM Batteries for renewable energy storage are manufactured in the USA by Concorde Battery Corporation and are built to the same demanding standards crucial to supporting the aircraft industry. To facilitate maximum conductivity & charge acceptance Sun Xtender® batteries are constructed with copper alloy corrosion free terminals & robust intercell connections. Endurance and optimal float life are achieved through plates thicker than the industry standard. Sun Xtender® Batteries' AGM maintenance free design is an ideal solution for off grid and grid tied systems.
