A sustainable future: Green buildings are key to reducing energy consumption

Construction is a key sector to address South Africa’s housing shortage and infrastructure needs, and thus is unlikely to slow down. The sector is also at the forefront of economic recovery plans as it has the double advantage of being labour-intensive with a knock-on effect on many industry sectors in its supply chain.

As the South African economy reawakens after lockdown, many companies have addressed the vital issue of our physical safety.

New Technologies are Making Predictive Maintenance for Circuit Breakers a Reality

This is the second in a two-part series on predictive maintenance for circuit breakers. In my first article, I talked about a condition-based approach using real operational and environmental inputs. These can include mechanical and contact wear, as well as humidity, salt, corrosive gases, vibration, and other influences. Analyzing this data helps maintenance teams predict the actual health of each breaker related to its aging.

How Predictive Maintenance of Circuit Breakers Boosts Reliability While Cutting Costs

In this two-part series, I’ll discuss some new techniques and technologies that can make your circuit breaker maintenance routine more efficient and effective.

Advances in technology are making electrical maintenance more efficient

If you’re part of a facility team or contracted service provider taking care of electrical operations in a commercial building or industrial environment, you have your hands full. To make sure things keep running reliably, there’s a lot of equipment to keep an eye on and a lot of maintenance to keep on top of.

Avoid power outages by keeping systems in failsafe mode

Berkeley Lab, a national laboratory sponsored by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, stated in 2016 that “power interruptions cost [the US economy] $110 billion per year … commercial and industrial classes account for more than 95% of these costs.” That same year, E-Source, a U.S.-based research subsidiary of the Rocky Mountain Institute, reported that “losses exceed $27 billion in the eight key market segments studied” and that “though manufacturers tend to take the biggest hits from long outages, the financial services, healthcare, and grocery sectors also see significant penalties, even for short outages.”
