When it comes to welding, your power supply can make or break you. For one, components must deliver reliable power to get the job done. They must also keep the electric current steady for the duration of the process—enabling you to focus on achieving the strongest, most precise weld possible.

Because wind turbines operate outdoors at remote or offshore sites, the power supply components you choose for these systems must be tough enough to withstand a variety of harsh conditions-including shock, vibration, moisture exposure, extreme temperature and more.

In today’s high-tech world, we place a lot of demands on data centers. Not only must they be able to operate around the clock, but equipment increasingly has to comply with global configuration standards. Receptacles, plugs and connectors used in these centers must have the same level of dependability as they provide power around the world-all day, every day-for equipment, such as rack system PDUs, servers, UPS and data storage devices.

If you work in food processing, you already know that every inch of the plant needs to be regularly cleaned and sanitized—but it’s easy to forget about the power equipment. All power distribution components and systems require special measures to function well in washdown environments. Here are three to keep in mind:
