K2 Qualification of 8N45S Series connectors

SOURIAU has obtained K2 qualification of 8N45S Series nuclear grade connectors. Compliant with RCC-E 2005 design and manufacturing standard, these new connectors integrate a screen termination mechanism that ensures perfect continuity and high shielding performances.


Modular bearing system for planetary Wind turbine gearboxes

Most wind turbines use gearboxes to transform the relatively low rotational speed of the main shaft into higher speeds required for power generation. Wind turbine designers have to face 2 main challenges when defining these gearboxes. First, the forces a wind turbine gearbox has to transmit are forever increasing while the gearbox itself has to remain compact. Second, these gearboxes are difficult and costly to design, to manufacture and to maintain.


CIAT equips the new FORCLUM headquarters building

The “Volta” building, located in France not far from Paris, has the distinctive feature of consuming just 69 kW/sq. m/year, which is 50% less than conventional service sector buildings. By supplying the energy production system, the air handling units and the comfort units, CIAT is a key player in this performance. Piloted by the main contractor EIFFAGE IMMOBILIER, it is the first service sector operation to be given a BBC Effinergie label in the Paris region.

DART Is Becoming Reality

DART is on its best way to becoming an accepted standard technology in the process industry. Dynamic Arc Recognition and Termination (DART) is a much easier approach to certify the intrinsic safety of a circuit. It provides considerable more power to drive field devices within explosion hazardous areas and allows longer cable distances. It uses intelligent detection circuits to monitor the entire electric circuit. As soon as the formation of a dangerous spark is detected, the power supply is shut off within microseconds to prevent the spark from becoming incentive. This greatly increases installation options and opens a completely new range of applications.
