Understanding the DC Drive System and Its Working Principle

DC drives control the speed of DC motor system by supplying voltage, and thus assist it to run at the right speed. The motor speed is directly and inversely proportional to armature voltage and field current, respectively. So, the function of a DC drive system is to influence both or either of the variables to keep the speed at the required level. Nowadays, a range of thyristor devices is used to control the speed of DC motors. DC Drive Operation The DC drive system is reliable and cost effective. They show more efficiency and precise control than AC drives in […]

A Brief Introduction to Fiber Optic Adapter and Its Types

The function of a fiber optic adapter, also known as a coupler, is to establish a connection between two fiber optic connectors used in a fiber optic cabling system. It acts as a bridge to close the gap between two similar or different types of connectors. The terms ‘coupler’ and ‘adapter’ refer to the similar device but only with a slight difference. We call the device a coupler when it connects two similar style connectors. Likewise, it’s an adapter when it links two different style connectors. Fiber Optic Adapter Types The types of fiber optic adapters are many because there’s […]

Types and Uses of Electrical Faceplates

Electrical faceplates, also known as wall plates and cover plates, typically refer to a plate-like item that covers an electrical outlet or light switch. They are made of metal, plastic, or other materials. However, faceplates can also refer to any plate designed to cover a device or computer component to either enhance the looks or increase the device’s functionality. For example, there are snap-on plates available for different types of consumer electronics items such as tabs, smartphones, handheld games, and more. Similarly, plates are also available for computer devices such as a motherboard plate will provide a secure casing around […]
