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.

Seton welcomes new regulations to tackle fake PPE

A recent Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) survey* confirmed that ensuring PPE is in good, serviceable condition is a top priority in health and safety organisations.  The survey also identified key PPE problems, including substandard PPE equipment being used by some contractors.  Due to the potentially fatal consequences of inferior products, the quality of PPE is high on the agenda.  As a result, Seton fully supports plans for revisions to the current European PPE Directive to tackle the growing problem of “fake” PPE.


Keeping ahead of the competition in the innovative development of new products is the life blood of any forward thinking manufacturer. It seems a new car design rolls out of the production plant of the three main German car manufacturers every week! And all because their need to keep one step ahead is paramount. The enclosure industry is no different, just on a much lesser financial scale


The countdown is on and with just one month to go until the official release, the shareholders of specialist industrial electrical distributors TLA have been impressed with the quantity of forward orders for their new 500 page product catalogue.

Beamex MCS200 calibration bench v1b

In today’s process industry, equipment is often calibrated out in the field. However, there are many advantages to performing maintenance and calibration tasks in the workshop, which often make this the preferred solution. For example, a workshop is a controlled environment, enabling better accuracy for calibration work. In addition, all equipment is always available and ready to use.

Leuze Electronic – Really powerful!

With optical sensors, sometimes the pure performance matters most of all

The AC/DC SR 49C all-voltage sensors, with relay and MOSFET outputs for high switching power, have been completely optimized for flexible usage. They are suitable for outdoor deployment and, thanks to their high function reserves, for operating ranges up to 120 m without any operational safety limitations. Thus, to put it succinctly, you could say about these tough sensors: reliability is the prime derivation of high performance.

The leading international trade fair for sensors, measuring, and testing technology, the SENSOR+TEST, will be held from 19 to 21 May 2015 at the Nürnberg Exhibition Center.

The SENSOR+TEST is a must-go venue for developers and engineers from all industries as well as for technically oriented engineering and science students. Without today’s sensor and measuring technology, appliances, machines, systems, and industrial processes could not be designed according to the state of the art or further developed in view of future innovations. Moreover, without the latest testing technology, the ever-increasing standards of quality could not be met within the cost limits imposed by external factors. There is no comparable platform where innovative users can meet so many important suppliers of sensor, measuring, and testing technology from all over the globe.
