What’s New?

EASA Exhibitors Section

Our EASA Show exhibitors section is front and center this month, featuring the products and services that will be on display at the June Electrical Apparatus Service Association convention in San Antonio. We asked exhibitors what the show means to them, why they’re there – and what they’ll be giving away at their booths! Look for other show details, too, in this always-well-read annual feature.

Upcoming Highlights – “True or False”

True or False: Clarifying common misconceptions about electric motors

This article will explore twenty statements about motor manufacture application and operation that are often seen in technical and marketing literature – some true, some not. Learn about common misconceptions involving bearings, temperatures, efficiency, industry standards, effect of power system conditions, enclosure design, etc. Every issue of Electrical Apparatus features reliable technical material. For summaries of previous or upcoming technical articles check out the Barks Publications Web site.

More in June 2015: PEARL and EMCW Reports

Technology, the internet, and new regulations like NFPA70E are transforming the electrical industry. Our report from the Pearl Conference in Cleveland this month details how companies can keep workers safe from electrical accidents and how electrical products are becoming more sustainable, safe and reliable. In many cases, redistributed and rebuilt parts/products are less expensive and easier to find than new products, but safety concerns are key.

Coverage and photos of the Electrical Manufacturing and Coil Winding show, in Milwaukee May 13-14, will be in the June issue. Stop by and say hi at our booth or schedule a meeting to learn more about Electrical Apparatus. Hope to see you there!
Santa Monica, Ca. Facilities Field Report

Rather than bemoaning a host of problems affecting the trades and urban residents, the City of Santa Monica, California, has taken steps to solve them. We look at three municipal programs that do the city’s work while providing training, jobs, and benefits to unemployed workers, city departments, and even middle-school girl campers.
