TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF LAMINATED BUS BAR WITH MERSEN’S LATEST PROTECTION INTELLIGENT QUOTIENT (PIQ) QUIZ

July 15, 2013


Mersen, formerly Ferraz Shawmut, recently published a new Protection Intelligence Quotient (PIQ) Quiz on determining bus bar cross-sectional area. This quiz, and all other Mersen PIQ quizzes, is now viewable on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.

 

Bus bars can improve reliability, increase capacitance, and eliminate wiring errors while at the same time reducing systems costs. A properly sized conductor will minimize temperature rise and also can be sized to ensure a desired voltage drop. This latest PIQ examines three different ways to determine bus bar cross-sectional area.

 

This is the latest quiz in an ongoing program that challenges participants to see if they’re up to speed on the best practices in electrical safety and reliability. With the educational PIQ program, design engineers, specifiers, electrical professionals, and equipment manufacturers can discover how much they know about the hazards that can harm people, equipment, and investments. The quiz is available online. Participants may take the quiz and enter to win a $100 gift card. Three winners are selected every month, and no purchase is necessary.

 

“We are clearly filling a need for electrical protection and safety information,” said Stephen Colvin, vice president of marketing at Mersen. “Many visitors take the latest quiz, and then move on to take earlier archived quizzes on topics such as arc flash hazard protection, overvoltage protection, and selective coordination.” To review earlier quizzes and download the PIQ Quiz Notes visit our
