Subject Matter Expert
What to Expect?
Useful information on selective coordination using tables and ABB documentation. Review of the National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements and supporting documentation to help you specify selectively coordinated systems.
Machine Guarding Basics
A pragmatic approach to machine safeguarding and devices with application examples and software configuration tools.
Hazardous Locations, Regulations & Standards
A major safety concern in industrial facilities is the occurrence of explosions or fires. From an offshore oil rig to a factory floor, all electrical equipment needs to perform to industry standards for a truly safe work environment. In this webinar, you will learn about hazardous locations and the factors that govern hazardous location lighting fixtures, industry standards, and regulations. We will also provide an overview of key hazardous location markets and rated luminaires available to help you prevent risks.
13 @ 2 pm
|ReliaGear White Paper - bolt on vs. plug in||Glynn Newby|
Product Marketing Manager
|Help enhance the safety, efficiency and longevity of power panel installations. A new white paper compares the benefits of plug-in versus bolt-on connections and finds that plug-in breakers can maintain contact pressure over a wider effective area and do not loosen over time. Learn why this is the case and what it means for you.|
|October 27 @ 2pm||Arc Flash solutions for new and existing applications||Mark Johnson|
Senior Power Systems Engineer
|Performing an Arc Flash Study is the first step in determining ways to reduce the arc flash exposure risk to personnel working around electrical equipment, minimize damage to equipment if an arc even occurs, and shorten loss of production time if repairs are needed.|
|November 10 @ 2pm||Ocal PVC-Coated Rigid Conduit & Fittings||Craig Yoss, Jeff Ice|
Subject Matter Experts
|With outstanding performance in corrosive environments, Ocal® PVC-coated conduit and fittings extend the life of your electrical system for many years beyond the lifespan of standard rigid conduit systems. This seminar will address project specifications, typical applications, and best practices for installation of Ocal PVC-coated rigid conduit and fittings for performance beyond industry standard.|
|November 24 @ 2pm||Fundamentals of Miniature Circuit Breakers||Thomas Weimann|
Product Marketing Manager
|Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs) are an essential part of circuit protection and can be found in industrial control and power distribution applications. Join us for this webinar to learn the fundamental of MCBs.|
|December 8 @ 2pm||Going digital ... How to go digital from an analog world||Earl Devenport|
Senior Application Engineer
|Modernize existing analog equipment, systems, and power monitoring by adding controls, sensors, and communication to digitize your current power system infrastructure.|
3 key points you will learn:
• Convert electromechanical relaying, analog metering, and controls from analog to digital and cloud-enabled platforms
• Expand from single functional devices to multifunction digital relays with advance protection metering and controls capabilities
• Migrate from manual inspections and infrared scans to proactive/predictive monitoring of temperature, partial discharge, and infrared
|December 22 @ 2pm||Power Quality Challenges and Solutions||Andrew Legro|
Field Application Engineer
|In this session you will learn about various types of power quality challenges including harmonics, sags and surges. We will provide detailed information about the types of power quality challenges and discuss potential solutions for each. If you need to know about measuring, assessing and mitigating power quality challenges, than this session is for you.|
