Digital panel meters (or DPM) typically uses either an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or LED (Light-Emitting Diodes) to display information in an alphanumerical format. What are the differences between LCD’s and LED’s and how do you know which one to pick for your application? Read on to find out! (more…)
The frictionless, shock-proof, taut-band suspension system has demonstrated superiority over the pivot-and-jewel mechanism in all types of analog panel meters. (more…)
Measurements of process parameters have historically been accomplished by the analog panel meter (APM). Since 1819, when Oersted proved the existence of current in a wire by using a compass needle positioned next to a conductor, APMs have been the main indicator for all kinds of monitoring. (more…)
Average loading on transformers is increasing as utilities strive for higher asset utilization. Higher loads mean hotter operation and the need for improved thermal management. Intelligent transformer monitors, such as the Weschler Transformer Advantage, provide users with reliable thermal data and flexible cooling control. (more…)
TECHCON NORTH AMERICA is an annual conference devoted to the discussion of technology developments and solutions which improve high voltage maintenance strategies and asset management programs for the aging electrical grid.
