Are You Sending the Right Signals?

We’ve used signals for communication for eons. One of the most famous signaling scenarios allegedly happened during the American colonies’ struggle for independence. Memorialized in the poem “Paul Revere’s Ride,” written by poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the passage is quoted here:

“One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country-folk to be up and to arm.”

Choosing the Right Panelboard for Your Project Location

I've installed and worked on more circuit breaker panelboards that I can remember. After 30+ years of work, it's got to be at least … one bunch!

Maybe more.

But most of the panelboards I've had the pleasure of meeting were fairly simple, straightforward circuit panels. Single phase and three phase panels, from 120/208 to 277/480… you get the idea, right?

Making Sense of All Things USB

If your organizational skills are anywhere near as advanced as mine, you likely also have at least one drawer in your kitchen or office that’s jammed with all the various USB cables that have been packaged with electronic products purchased over the years.

USB-C Brings New Functionality to USB Connectors and Cables

The latest addition to the USB connector lineup is USB-C, and, according to its developers, it might be the last (at least until the next one comes along). It takes the “universal” in “universal serial bus” seriously – not only is it sized slim enough to fit the sleekest smartphone, it’s also designed to make the most of the new USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ standard, which enables broad enough bandwidths to transmit 4K UHD video to a flat-screen TV.  This means you could use the same cable to charge a laptop and connect a streaming device to your TV.

Nonmetallic Electrical Enclosures

I’ve installed (and replaced) a lot of enclosures over the last 30 years. And I’ve probably used just about every type of enclosure, from small metal EMT boxes with knockouts to stainless steel behemoths that needed drilled or punched.

Accessorizing Your Nonmetallic Enclosure

I don’t know if you watched it, but one of my favorite adult cartoons was “King of the Hill.” Hank, the main character was easy to identify with (although I look more like his father, Cotton).

Hank sold, as he often mentioned, “Propane and propane accessories.”
