November it is!
By Paul Werthman

November 11 marks Veteran's Day, when we honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It also coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which mark the end of World War I.

Thanksgiving, later this month, always make me think of family. It also reminds me that the Electrical Industry is a family as well. We’re a fairly small close-knit community and we care about each other and we are all about our customers. All in all, the Electrical Industry is a great place to work, a wonderful venue for a career.

Material Concerns in Explosion-Proof Product Design

These are areas, as defined in the National Electrical Code, where a combustible atmosphere raises a risk of explosion if sparks or open flames or present. This risk could be the result of flammable gases, combustible vapors, combustible dust or easily ignitable fibers.

Cable Trays – Types, Construction, and Uses
Steve Maurer, IME

The use of cable trays is fairly widespread in countries outside the US. However, cable trays are gaining ground here as well. The offset of installation costs to the often more expensive approve cable is one reason. The ease with which reconfiguration of machinery and equipment is another.
