This manual will give you a fundamental understanding of security in effective industrial networking and data communications technology. It will also present you with the key issues associated with security in industrial communications networks and will assist managers, system operators and industrial data communications specialists in setting up secure systems.
The aim of this manual is to go beyond the basic concepts and introduce you to the practical techniques and applications of 61131-3. It cuts across apparent differences wherever PLCs are used and introduces standards that are widely applicable.
The most important objective of wireless communications networks must be to achieve similar capacities, bandwidths, responsiveness and availability to that of wire-based communications systems. This manual covers the essential areas of robust wireless links, correct integration with the wired communications systems, and proper data security.
The overall focus of this manual is on electrical inspection, testing and commissioning and commences with a detailed examination of switchgear (and circuit breakers). Protection relays; commissioning and periodic inspection of cables , their various failure modes and how to detect these faults; and the often neglected topic of switchboards is also detailed.
This manual is designed for engineers and technicians from a wide range of abilities and backgrounds and will provide an excellent introduction in installation, calibration, commissioning and maintenance of electronic instrumentation.
This manual will provide you with practical knowledge (including tips, tricks and tools) covering the fundamentals of power transformers and their testing. It will greatly assist you in communicating more effectively with your electrical engineering colleagues.
This manual explains the application concepts of explosion protection using Intrinsic Safety (IS or Ex 'I'). This is with reference to British, European and international standards for the certification and use of electrical 'apparatus'.
This manual covers selection, installation and commissioning of fiscal metering and is for engineers and technicians, and those who are primarily involved in achieving effective results for the industrial processes they are responsible for.
