November 1, 2012

Mersen, formerly Ferraz Shawmut, recently published a new Protection Intelligence Quotient (PIQ) Quiz understanding conductor sizing for laminated bus bars. 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. Participants may take the quiz and enter to win a $100 gift card. Three winners are selected every month, and no purchase is necessary.

Bus bars can improve reliability, increase capacitance, and eliminate wiring errors while at the same time reducing systems costs. This latest PIQ examines these considerations and looks at products bundled for various applications. 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.
