Panel Builder System Integrator

January 23, 2019

Mersen has announced the launch of the first-to-market Class RK1 Reducer Fuse product series. This innovative product is the latest member of the Class J Reducer Fuse and Class J and R Fuse Reducer product offerings, extending Mersen’s solutions to support the rapidly growing US manufacturing and process industries.

Certified as a Special Purpose UL/CSA Listed Class RK1 fuse, these reduced current rating fuses are designed to fit into the next larger size fuse holders, providing the same high reliability performance, durability, and arc flash mitigation as standard Class RK1 fuses.

Reducer Fuses are ideally suited for start-up or newly expanded manufacturing facilities that are ramping up production and electrical power demand. Upon approaching full capacity, the reduced rating Reducer Fuses can be readily replaced by higher standard rating fuses of the same body size, thus eliminating the need to replace the fuse panel.

Another key benefit of the Class J and RK1 Reducer Fuses is that they are ready to install and replace directly out-of-the-box, minimizing production down time.

The Class RK1 Reducer Fuse series is available immediately, along with the Class J Reducer Fuse and Class R and Class J Fuse Reducer accessories.

Unique circumstances sometimes make it challenging, impractical, or even impossible for products to undergo the traditional certification process. This could be due to new technology that does not fit within a current standard, custom or imported equipment or impracticality due to limited volume production runs. Additionally relocating, modifying or refurbishing equipment introduces additional compliance requirements that if ignored can prevent a product from being placed in service.

In these unique situations, contractors and manufacturers of electrical products need to understand the steps to take to avoid having equipment red-tagged and prevented from being connected or installed at the job site. Go HERE to register

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

Cybertech developed the Process Control and Safety Instrumented System Auditor to identify high-risk misalignments between plant process control and safety systems – and provide sufficient guidance to each plant system owner to resolve material issues.

Computerized data analytics are effective in mining the big data found in a typical process facility. The Cybertech System Auditor accepts native data from plant systems, cleans up and standardizes the data with purpose-built C# data mining applications and SQL data manipulation. Tiered SQL views minimize data duplication and facilitate automatic updates when base native data changes (e.g. after a system owner advises that they have resolved identified issues).
