Scared of lifts? Common causes of lift electrical failure

Scared of lifts? Common causes of lift electrical failure
If a small, metal box with limited airflow, suspended metres in the air by a hoist was described to you, you would imagine a death trap; no it’s actually a passenger lift. When you think of it like that, it is hardly surprising that so many of us harbour phobias of lifts. One of the most pressing threats is from electrical faults. In 2007, Gary Morgan from Liftstore recalled some instances of electrical interference in elevator systems, highlighting issues that are still prevalent in many systems to this day.

The power within the food chain

The power within the food chain
We take for granted what an important role electricity plays in the food chain; from powering microwaves to keeping fridge-freezers running. Yet even before products reach the hands of consumers, a constant supply of reliable power is required to ensure that food is produced safely and properly. Steve Hughes, Managing Director of power quality specialist REO UK, explains how electrical engineers can protect food manufacturing plants from power quality problems.
