Motor Specifications – Voltage,Ampere and Frequency

These parameters are important to clarify our application design from voltage value,phases,full load ampere, overload setting and frequency setting if using Variable Speed Drive.

As an electrician,we must fully understand what is mean by voltage, ampere and frequency to ensure our application safe and working properly.

Ok…let we start our discussion and explanation about Voltage, Ampere and Frequency on Electric Motor Nameplate.

RATED VOLTAGE (VOLT)

What is Rated Voltage?For simple understanding, rated voltage is manufacturer design for suitable operated voltage value with optimal performance.We can refer the motor voltage and phases on the nameplate also can decide either voltage/phases is available in our installation or not.Every country have different value of voltage.Please make sure your motor are followed standard country voltage.

Electrical Cable/Wire General Requirement

This topics always discussed among of electrician personnel that involved on new installation or electrical projects.If they miss calculated or choose a wrong size for the conductor/wires,it’s can cause a big disaster when that installation failure.

Electrical cable/wire is a important things that we must consider with calculation and detail discussion to avoid any mistaken during design and installation.We must take a serious action to get a good result.

I would like to shared some general requirement for electrical cable/wire for new electrical installation or projects that we must consider during design review.I hope this can make a guide line for the best result in your installation or projects. read more

Electrical Conduit

What is a conduit?For an electrician work scope,conduit is a one of famous method for electrical cable route wiring in domestic or industrial sector.

A conduit is a channel or pipe that electrical cable are contained secure inside when do the electrical wiring.We can route the conduit at the surface or con-seal method.

The main purpose of conduit application are to providing a mechanical protection of electrical cable,easy for rewired or modification of circuit,flexibility and look tidy installation.Normally we can found several types material of conduit and it made for different application and condition such as PVC,Steel,Stainless Steel & Flexible.

Types of electrical conduits

When we plan to do for electrical wiring,we need to use a conduit system to protect an electrical cable from damage due to mechanical or biological.It also make electrical wiring look nice and proper arrangement.

As an electrician,a knowledge about conduits is important to decide which types are suitable for our wiring application and structure.If we choose a wrong types,it can cause the serious damage,increase cost for material and also can reduce wiring life span.

An electrical conduit system is designed for electrical piping system used for wiring installation.It made electrical wiring more easy to installed and have a proper way. Electrical conduit may be made of metal, plastic,fiber, or fired resistance material. read more

How to install lug for electric cable?

Cable termination is important when we install equipment,machine,induction motor,power supply distribution and many more.We use a cable lug to connect the electrical cable with terminal or busbar.

The right method to install cable lug is important to ensure the termination is perfect and tight to avoid sparking.It can cause the damage of cable or the equipment.This time i want share some information about how to install a lug for 240mm electric cable.

Please use the suitable crimping tools and correct cable lug  according electrical cable size.If not the crimping process will not perfect and it can cause a serious damage.Following video is one of example how to crimping cable lug for 240mm cable. read more

Temporary electrical supplies

When working at construction area or for temporary work space,the electrical supplies that we provided  can save our times and can speed up the working progress.Because the power tools and lighting or others equipment needed the power supply to completed the tasks.

We must ensure the temporary electrical supply that we install for construction works must in safe condition and comply with wiring regulation and suitable with working area hazards such as explosive or confined space.

The power supply wiring also must be of robust construction to cover electrical requirement and heavy duty to stand from environment such as rain,wind and sun also rough handling.It important to make the wiring condition is safe for our workers from electrical shock and others injuries. read more

Equipment for PLC programming

Now in automation industry,the common practice for programming the PLC is using a desktop or laptop.It easy to handle and more comfortable when perform the design or troubleshooting job.

PLC manufacture also in advance to produce a user friendly PLC software in market today.It made our programming task more easy and can get the best result and design for our project.Everybody can learn about PLC programming because it easy to understand and have many option functions for design,programming and fault finding task.

To ensure PLC programming done properly,we should prepare all equipment or tools for programming matter is available and working in good condition.
