Special components for the DC feeding systems ensure faultless emergency shutdown to avoid severe damages to the system and possible injury of people. Preventing unnecessary disruptions to operation with accurate fault detection has a considerable impact on rail traffic and availability of the system.
On November 1, 2020, Knick subsidiary Knick Schweiz AG takes over the product group Interface Technology in addition to product group Process Analytics. The Interface product group includes transmitters and transducers for demanding industrial applications.
The VariTrans P 40000 series from Knick enables reliable voltage measurements from ±50 mV to ±3600 V and current measurements from ±100 mA to ±20 kA. The proven series from the ProLine has now been expanded to include the transducer P42000D2, which measures voltages up to 2200 V DC in a compact housing for Din rail mounting.
Many DC electrical measurement products manufactured by Knick contain universal, also known as broad-range, power supplies. This means that they will work over a relatively large voltage window, for example 20…253 V, AC or DC.
Knick Interface is excited to announce that we have recently expanded our footprint in North America, in an effort to better assist with our customers’ electrical measurement applications. This has been achieved through four partnerships established with high-quality manufacturer representatives in Canada.
Photovoltaic (PV) array degradation is an important aspect to consider for system design and installation. Over time, factors such as weather and UV exposure contribute to solar cell performance decline. By better understanding degradation effects and contributors, safeguards and technology enhancements can potentially be considered for performance improvements.
With the ARD 170, Knick Elektronische Messgeräte GmbH & Co. KG is launching a high-quality immersion fitting for mobile measurements of pH, conductivity and dissolved oxygen. During the design, particular attention was paid to the simple and flexible handling.
With the immersion fittings ARD 50 EL and ARD 75 EL, Knick Elektronische Messgeräte GmbH & Co. KG is expanding its portfolio of fittings for liquid analysis with additional electrically conductive (EL) variants. The two industrial fittings have a modular structure and enable a wide selection of application-specific sensors.
Voltage and current transducers from Knick bring true control to electrical measurement applications across a wide-range of industries. With a number of solutions engineered for measurement and safe isolation of DC voltages upwards of 4800 V, and other transducers that offer precise conversion of AC voltage inputs to standard DC outputs, Knick truly is a problem solver from 480 to 4800 volts.
Transformers have long been considered important components within electrical systems. When a need arises to step voltage in a circuit either up or down for purposes of power transmission or distribution, there is no doubt that these devices are essential.
