Electrical Components Q&A

25 02 2011

Electronic components and the electrical industry in general can easily leave you with more questions than answers when it comes to working out what particular parts do.

Find answers to some of your electrical component questions below.

What are electronic components?

A good starter question. Electrical components can refer to any part of an electronic system used to affect the flow of electricity. Electronic components are made to be connected together to create an electronic circuit of which a printed circuit board organises them.

Printed circuit boards support the electrical components using conductive pathways, and are used by most commercially-produced electronic devices.

What is Static Auditing?

Static auditing is an assessment of a production facility’s overall electrical performance – it aims to identify any faults in the system which could jeopardise the electrical current, or performance of the machines they are connected to.

It is important to identify these faults as soon as they occur or to prevent them from happening, so they do not cause further damage to the system, as this can put a strain on other electrical currents and make the whole mechanism less economical.

What are Cross Flow Blowers? 

These cross flow blowers are a specific type of blower which produces a high flow rate of air at low pressure.

They are more commonly used for large-surface air flow requirements where a blade roller causes the air to move through it twice in the radial direction.

The fan is long compared to its diameter to make the flow of air two-dimensional away from the ends.

They are used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning, as they are compact in shape, operate quietly and provide a high pressure.  The length can be adjusted to meet the flow rate requirements.
