Energy chains

ready for smart – does that make sense in offshore applications?

Richard Habering | 26. May 2020

Offshore – where service work costs millions: is that really necessary? Energy supply at drilling rigs, construction machines and shore power applications – cold, wet, dirty and heavy. Real stress for thick cables, hard hoses, but also for sensitive bus and data cables. Too much stress leads to breakages – which usually cost a lot […]

Preventing electrostatic discharge Chapter 1: ESD clothing

Maria Burkanova | 18. May 2020

Our bodies are very good electrical conductors. Electrostatic charging is almost unavoidable. Electrostatic charging occurs if you rub two materials together and then separate them, for example. Simply walking around can be enough to cause an electrostatic charge of several thousand volts. The invisible hazard – as described by experts. “ESD protection” is therefore very […]
