Remember when you didn't need a computer science degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to actively diagnose automotive issues? If something was wrong, you just tinkered with the parts.

Sure, maybe we're over-exaggerating, but most new cars are, essentially, computers. They contain On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) systems that monitor the performance of major components and generate codes to indicate if something has gone awry.

Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are how an OBD II Interface system pinpoints and transmits issues to automotive technicians, so it’s essential that technicians be able to understand the codes to quickly identify the problem
to minimize associated downtime.

The Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) market is positioned for growth with some reports predicting a market value greater than $20 billion by 2021. What's driving this growth? Advantages to using VFD such as tighter process control and cost savings achieved through improved efficiency, reduced energy usage, and decreased maintenance. While controllers and motors combine as the two primary components to VFD, there is one additional component that is often overlooked and yet it is key to achieving the above-outlined benefits: the cable.

It's February. And if you live in certain regions, there's no way to avoid it — low temperatures, snow, freezing rain and ice. Not lucky enough to live in a snow belt? Perhaps you operate in a warmer region but your plant runs applications that are frigid in nature. We're talking to you, too! Whether you're the former or the latter, freezing conditions require you to take additional steps to prepare your facility. Keep your plant operational by focusing on these three key areas.
