Hydrogen Detection during Cask Welding Improves Process and Eliminates Stoppages

Cambridge Microprocessor Systems Ltd

The PROton range is the latest range of modular Embedded Control systems fromCambridgeMicroprocessor Systems designed by engineers forengineers.

During a product development it is not always clear what you require in the final product untilyou are well into the development. With a traditional development you purchase the parts that youthink that you will need and then have to work within those parts and tools to complete the project.This often results in rats nests of wires, components stuck onto extra boards etc. With the PROtonrangeof modular products you can simply add additional peripheral or memory boards as requiredduring the development. If we do not supply the particular part that you need simply purchaseour Prototype card and add it yourself, keeping everything tidy within the stack of boards. Oncetheproduct has been designed and tested then we offer a full design and customisation service foryour finalproduct.

Health and Safety in the workplace – Bringing the nation to its knees

Thousands of people who spend any length of time kneeling are seriously underestimating the amount of long-term damage they could be doing to their knees, ultimately adversely affecting their mobility and even future finances through being unable to work.

Our knees are complex. Often thought of as a simple hinge in our legs, knees in fact support the majority of our body weight and allow us to stand, walk, run, climb stairs, kick, crouch, sit, and stand up again. For workers who spend a great deal of time on floor level surfaces, or crawling in confined areas, the phrase, “Our knees are our feet!” is appropriate. As a result, workplace injuries to knees are not uncommon.

Make ESOS Easy By Darryl Mattocks, Managing Director, Enistic

The ESOS rules apply to all ‘large organisations’ in the UK and will include many in the processing industry. So, does this apply to you? And, are you ready? I have put together a quick guide to all you need to know about ESOS compliance – see the boxed panel.

If you haven’t made a start, don’t delay. There are fewer than 500 lead assessors available for the 10,000 plus organisations which need to comply with ESOS. Leave it too late, and you might not be able to find a lead assessor to work with you. And the holiday season is upon us.

CAE – the key to speed, accuracy and flexibility in electrical design

The globalisation of design and automation has made it critical for companies to reduce costs and increase quality to stay competitive and ahead in the field. In the electrical engineering industry, many are turning to Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software to strengthen their foothold in the marketplace. However, not all products are the same and care must be taken when choosing electrical design software.

CAE software is an essential tool for electrical engineers and designers alike, providing a ‘right first time’ approach at the planning stage. Users can use the technology to view a virtual design on screen which can reveal – and therefore avoid – issues that might otherwise prove to be not only costly, but time consuming as well, by eradicating any problems that might arise further down the line.
