One of the most important parts of any facility is the electrical distribution system.
Nothing will stop all activity, halt production, cause inconvenience and possibly panic, more than a major power failure.
Selective coordination is critical for the reliability of the electrical distribution system.Add a comment
Extension cords enable us to deliver power where needed. However, an extension cord is just a temporary solution, and should not be used as a long-term extension of your household’s electrical system.
Extension cords are designed to carry a certain level of current over a fixed distance which is the length of the cord. Once you have two identical extension leads connected in series, one after the other, the extension cord’s resistance effectively increases. This results in greater heating of the cord and possible damage to the insulation, which can be the source of fires and electrical shock.
