Energy efficient control of pumps

Improving the efficiency of pumping systems is an important focus for energy efficiency efforts. Almost half (45%) of the electricity produced globally is used by motors [1], and a large proportion of these motors drive centrifugal pumps. Efficiency gains result in significant reductions in total energy use over time, dramatically lowering operating costs and environmental impact.

LSA / LSA-PLUS LIGHTNING & SURGE PROTECTION

An area of lightning protection that is often poorly implemented, is the protection of telecommunications wiring. Insufficient protection of these services can often result in damage to expensive equipment and more importantly the loss of critical communications. Even with the advent of VOIP technologies and the use of optic fiber in many communications applications, copper is still a preferred medium in some new and existing facilities.
