Electrical Tip

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

    How can I design and integrate a SCADA system into home appliances?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Obinna,
      To successfully create a SCADA system to be used for home appliances you would first need to identify the desired functions or the functions and operations that the SCADA system would provide, this way you will be able to identify the number of analog or digital modules needed and the types of activities that will be programmed into the controller. In other words, begin with the end in mind, therefore the processes will identify the size of the SCADA system to be used and the necessary components and electrical materials that will need to be provided and installed.
