Jacob Elliott has recently joined our company as Materials and Purchasing Manager. Many of you have had the opportunity to speak with Jake on the phone or communicate through e-mail. It is always nice to place a face to a name and discover a little more about who you are working with. I sat down with Jake and asked him a few questions about things that may interest you. Thank you for welcoming Jake , we a very excited to have him on board.

Process Control manufacturers are constantly researching and experimenting to develop new models that may be useful to our industry. There will always be new systems with different needs so it is important for manufacturers to continuously add new models and solutions to their product line. Recently the development of a Fast Response Voltage to Voltage Isolator for High GRID Distribution systems will provide a solution for companies in need of an isolator of that kind.

 

When large companies such as GE, ABB and Siemens are designing systems that switch very high GRID Distribution System Voltages that are well above 100KV, everything in the system has to work precisely. The manufacturer must be aware that keeping process signals isolated from each other is also required. More importantly, these process signals must respond on a fast but known response time. Normal isolators have filtering to keep out unwanted noise. This keeps the response time down to the 2-5Hz range. However, the isolators required in these fast bandwidth systems require response times from 5-12.5kHz +/- depending upon the particular application the switch system engineer requires.

The ability to simulate events that can effect operations within the Nuclear Industry is an invaluable tool. At Pyragon we understand that knowing the possible scenarios and being prepared for what may occur is key. We offer five valuable testing capabilities that will improve Nuclear Plant planning and Operations. The following testing capabilities are now available Electrical Transients, Electro Static Discharge, Thermal Aging, MTBF Analysis and RFI and EMI. Electrical Transients test the operation of equipment in situations that mimic large voltage surges and spikes caused by electrical storms or major power switching events that can occur within large scale plants, such as a power generation facility. Pyragon offers transient testing to IEC Standards of 61000-4-4 Electrical Fast Transients, 61000-4-5 Surge and 61000-4-12 Ring Wave.

Planning for obsolescence can avoid prolonged shutdowns or unexpected outages. Although, every obsolescence issue cannot be planned and unexpected issues can occur at any time. Whether the issue has been planned for or unexpected we understand your nuclear issues and can offer guidance to assure operations are enhanced and provide reliability and compatibility with original models.











Nuclear Obsolescence can be troubling for any facility when unforeseen circumstances occur. Unplanned outages and shutdowns can be extremely costly - discovering the problem, locating which unit is needed to solve the problem, waiting for manufacture of the correct unit according to new guidelines and specifications and finally delivery of the unit to the facility. Obviously,...

This is the first post to introduce you to our companies. This blog will cover not only Adtech, but our sister company Pyragon as well.

ADTECH has recently expanded its line of Isolator products so that it has virtually every form of signal isolator for every conceivable application.  These include input loop powered, output 2 wire and 3 wire powered, separate primary power for both AC and DC power as well as units that can provide power to the input loop.   Whatever type of isolator your application requires, ADTECH has it. 

The ability of ADTECH to monitor critical process functions has recently been improved.  We have added a complete new line of alarm monitor modules.  The these alarm modules can monitor, AC Volts, AC Current, Dc Volts, DC Current, Millivolt, T/C and RTD sensors.  All alarms feature adjustable time delay,  adjustable dead band, latching action and LED indication of alarm status.  Alarms can be configured for either fail safe or non-fail safe mode.
