Electricity and Control October 2018The history of our species is a testament to the works of countless engineers. The importance of engineers to any society has historically been of great importance, and as we become more dependent on technology, that trend is only likely to increase over time. 

With this in mind, the industry as a whole is required to remain well-informed and to be the driving force behind the development of new and innovative solutions for the betterment of all.

Electricity and Control September 2018As a community engineers have the problem-solving skills necessary to remedy a problem, but more than that, they are responsible for creating solutions to problems that society isn’t even aware of yet. This expectation puts the industry as a whole under pressure not only to remain clued up on current developments, but also to be the driving force behind new and innovative solutions.

Electricity and Control August 2018As the digital age continues to advance at rapid speed, many industries are finding themselves in a state of constant change and flux. The engineering industry is just one sector that has seen an explosion in innovation. If anything, technology is moving faster than ever, and engineers need to be acutely aware of the associated impacts and opportunities.

In this constantly evolving industry the one thing, besides change, that remains certain is the need for reliable, up-to-date information. With this in mind, Electricity + Control continues to strive towards delivering content that keeps up with all the evolutions and revolutions that characterise the industry we serve.

Electricity and Control July 2018Ours is an industry characterised by ingenuity, and dependent on innovation for its advancement. Since inception, Electricity + Control has been fervently dedicated to providing the engineering community with content which is above-all current and informative, all the while remaining committed to promoting the efficient use of energy.

The July 2018 issue achieves just this with features that delve into the significance of electric actuators and their use in the design of medical devices, data and the smart machine revolution, as well as the ins and outs of variable frequency drives. We also explore the question of whether smart metering is capable of meeting the specific requirements of Africa, the ways in which artificial intelligence is expected to revolutionise the energy industry and how remote monitoring improves machine maintenance.

Electricity and Control June 2018

As we enter the second half of 2018, I am pleased to present the June edition of Electricity + Control. With a broad range of informative features and noteworthy industry news, we constantly strive to bring our readers high quality content, aligned with the expectations of an industry defined by constant innovation and progress.

This month we discuss, amongst other things, cable solutions for servo and variable frequency drives, Integrated drive technology for optimised machine design and harmonic filtering on board diamond mining vessel in Namibia as well as the application of handheld test tools in preventative maintenance and introduce you to Siemens’ new generation soft starters which can be used in a host of applications. Furthermore, we also examine laser line triangulation as an optical measurement technique and review numerous state-of-the-art products and devices, bound to intrigue discerning minds.

This being my first run as editor of Electricity + Control – which has, over the years, proven to be a leader in its field – I hope that you will find this issue as stimulating to read as it was for me to work on.

Many thanks,

Fiona Mosca

ElectricityandControl May 2018The May 2018 issue of Electricity+Control is the last issue that I have edited after almost ten years at Crown Publications. ‘Happy-sad’ is the way I describe how I feel today – with mixed thoughts and feelings rushing through my head and heart.

I have to say that ….

I have fond memories of the late Jenny Warwick who, with Prof Ian Jandrell, hired me.

I thank Crown Publications management, Karen Grant and Will du Plessis – and the Electricity+Control team – for keeping me!
