Taking A Look At EC Fans

EC fans are generally recognised as being the latest thing in energy efficient air movement technology, but what is an EC fan and what makes it so special? EC stands for Electronically Commutated which basically means it’s a fan with a brushless DC motor.

Basic DC motors rely on carbon brushes and a commutation ring to switch the current direction, and therefore the magnetic field polarity, in a rotating armature.  The interaction between this internal rotor and fixed permanent magnets induces its rotation.  In an EC motor, the mechanical commutation has been replaced by electronic circuitry which supplies the right amount of armature current in the right direction at precisely the right time for accurate motor control. read more >

Network Nonsense

Why do all IT professionals lavish much care, attention and expense on their servers and storage devices as possible, but sometimes forget about the network equipment that controls the traffic? Networks are notorious for being security risks, but quite often the hardware stability can get overlooked when it comes to the quality of the equipment being used.

Also there seems to be a reluctance to patch systems in a tidy way, “spaghetti” seems to be the accepted practice as long as it works. Different coloured leads plugged into any port as long as the staff can gain the correct connectivity seems acceptable. read more >

Fresh New Look for Company Vans

With the launch of their new fresh website earlier in the year, Mitchell’s have carried the website design theme into other areas of the company.

New signage at their premises in Bristol Road now follows the same theme as the website and in the last 2 weeks the new look van livery has been launched.

Incorporating the 2 blue colours into a curved design with all the brightly coloured buttons from the website has transformed the look of the vans.

Managing Director Garrion Leeds said “it’s a real departure from the traditional stock but is in keeping with the website and the fresher face the company wants to portray.  We have been trading since 1905 and although well known throughout the area we do not want to be thought of as old fashioned.” read more >

Electrical Installation Condition Report

The first amendment to BS7671:2008 (IET Wiring Regulations) will come into effect on 1st January 2012.  One of the most significant changes sees the introduction of the new “Electrical Installation Condition Report” (EICR) which will replace the current Periodic Inspection Report.

What does this mean in practice?

Every electrical installation deteriorates both with use and over time, so it is important that every installation is periodically inspected and tested by a competent person to ensure that the safety of persons using the installation is not put at risk.  The results of the test and inspection are clearly detailed in a report together with a list of “observations” which are items noted during the test that identify any damage, defects, deterioration or dangerous conditions within the installation. read more >

Energy Efficient Lighting

With the ever increasing rises in energy costs and the increased pressure on organisations to reduce their carbon footprint, now more than ever is there a need to consider energy efficient solutions.

Over the next few months we shall consider many types of energy saving products and how they can be integrated into the business environments.

The first item we shall consider is lighting.  Lighting can consume a significant amount of the electricity used in the running of an organisation, and this can be as much as 50% of the total demand dependant on building type and use. read more >
