Power quality analyzers measure the electric power of consumer devices. Power quality is monitored in many environments: hospitals, banks, manufacturing plants, power distribution, power generation, etc. The purpose of this is to better the quality of service, allowing you to save you a lot of time and money.
Synchronization of the voltage frequency and the phase makes it possible for electrical systems to function in their intended mode without any significant change in the performance. Depending on the current, power analyzers range from single to three-phase power quality analyzers. Single phase power analyzer records the quality of the primary current of an electric network.
“Leadership is having a vision, sharing that vision and inspiring others to support it while creating their own.” – Mindy Gibbins-Klein
Do you have an inspiring vision for the future? You want to motivate and inspire a team of people who share the enthusiasm of engaging with your vision?

We are all aware of the devastating effects wars can have, however technology would not have advanced so greatly (or at least not this fast) had it not been for groundbreaking designs during such difficult times. From rotary filling to milling, a lot of persistence and shrewdness was required to invent something that would be better than enemy machinery and outsmart them. It was during WWII that CNC machining was brought to use.
CNC, which stands for Computerised Numerical Control, is the process of creating a design through CAD (Computer Aided Design) software that a computer converts into numbers. The first CNC machining was used for more precision with creating aircraft. Of course this type of production has gone a long way since the prototype of CNC. The base of CNC milling is comprised of tools required for cutting and shaping metal and other solid materials. While in the past the system of the machine had to be operated manually, a lot of time is saved nowadays thanks to the automated mechanism. Industrial production has undergone considerable changes.
Because of the countless advantages, all sorts of industries make use of this computerised system and there are many CNC milling machines to choose. From aerospace, agriculture, automotive, electronics and military to medical industry, there certainly is not a branch that has not benefited from CNC milling. The specialised design makes it perfect for accurate shaping of aircraft structures, plane and car engine parts, transmission housing, many kinds of TV and mobile phone parts, as well as firearm components. It is especially of crucial importance for medicine because many surgeries that were previously deemed impossible or risky have been simplified significantly. A large number of surgical tools are produced by CNC machines, and most of the orthopaedic implants such as prosthetic knees and hips, even including spinal implants.
Along with fabrication of complex products, these machines can find their way in homes in a like manner since they are also fit for short-run production and any ideas for when your creativity strikes. They differ from the other machines in their size as they are designed compactly to adequately not take up much space and can easily be your next desk accessory. From home use to large scale industry manufacturing, CNC milling probes into endless aspects. Though prices of these machines may be slightly higher than manually operated ones, it is an investment worth considering as it will pay off eventually. Recently there are many new models emerging which results in a drop of the price range.

There is no bigger pleasure than moving into a new home; the decorating, the new furniture elements, the new colour schemes and practically everything that goes along with this exciting adventure. I don’t know whether it is because I’m a woman and into interior design way more than I should be, but when I had to move from my single-girl apartment on the highest floor in my building, which by the way has a very small elevator, into a new large house with my family, I was literally obsessed with the move. I had everything organized to the tiniest detail, so when I heard from my dear friend who also went through a residential relocation of her own, that she was fatigued after it, I was stunned! Did that process go smoothly only for me?! Continue reading

When you talk about socket testers you are talking about plug-in devices designed to give you a quick and easy indication of what kind of condition the outlet is in. Although most devices will tell you the basic information you want, no device can tell you absolutely everything you need to know about the socket.

It is also important to know how to use socket testers as many people carry them around in their tool bags but don’t understand how to properly use them. A lot of people also don’t know the difference between a simple socket tester, an advanced socket tester and a professional socket tester. Below we’ll go over the differences between each three so you know which one is the best fit for your needs. Continue reading
