||Easy Does It: Communications Wiring Devices
In communications, contractors want wiring devices that make
installation easier yet also provide flexibility so they can find
efficiencies on the job site. Arlington Industries, Inc.’s
non-metallic, Low Voltage Mounting Brackets, for example, save time and
money with faster and easier mounting of Class 2 communications,
computer, and cable TV wiring. Because the mounting brackets are
designed to mount wall plates flush, they offer features (such as
specially designed screw holes) that deliver an easy-to-install job.
||Plug and Play Fittings
Every project has opportunities to replace field labor with a better
fitting. No, the fitting will not self assemble yet, but it could be in
development. Installing a single liquid-tight raceway takes only
minutes, but when you have many of them, it adds up. Connections often
require liquid-tight raceway due to vibration and water exposure. When
the project has many motors to connect, you often have liquid-tight
raceway as a requirement,
||Bonding vs. Grounding: A Primer
Bonding and grounding are simple concepts, but, unfortunately, they’re
also easily confused with each other. Definitions of one term often get
wrapped up in the definitions of the other, and, before long, one can
begin thinking the words are interchangeable.
“Grounding” refers to the creation of a path from electrical equipment
to the earth. It is intended to protect equipment and help prevent fires
that might occur due to high voltages resulting from lightning strikes,
line surges or unintended contact with higher-voltage lines.
