Why is there an electronic component shortage?

Why is there an electronic component shortage?
Since the launch of the Model 3, Elon Musk has been under significant pressure to scale up Tesla’s manufacturing capacity and overcome its current struggle with meeting demand. Currently, the electronic component supply chain is trying to tackle a similar challenge, as Steve Hughes, Managing Director of REO UK, explains in this article.

Powering renewable energy companies

Powering renewable energy companies
Renewable energy companies are being urged to reconsider their supporting electrical infrastructure. The call comes from REO UK, who is advising businesses to invest in its RE-GEN CNW957 harmonics filter. Designed to eliminate Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) frequencies to protect the electrical infrastructure, the filter also increases the efficiency of the drive by improving power quality.

Power quality in hybrid operating theatres

Power quality in hybrid operating theatres
If you told a NHS director of finance that they could reduce patient operating times and reduce the time that in-patients spend in hospitals, they’d most likely snap your hand off. This could soon become a reality with the introduction of hybrid operating theatres, which combine high end imaging equipment with a traditional surgery environment. However, there are several considerations that must be made to make the investment a success, as Steve Hughes, Managing Director of REO UK, explains.

Why AC/DC variable voltage sources are still necessary for testing

Why AC/DC variable voltage sources are still necessary for testing
Producing robust variable-output power for electronic applications has not always been easy. Even now, in many higher current and high voltage applications, variable voltage sources that use modern electronics can become expensive and less robust. Steve Hughes, Managing Director of REO UK, explains why AC/DC variable voltage sources are still essential in testing applications.

Industry is wasting potential 44TWh each year according to whitepaper

Industry is wasting potential 44TWh each year according to whitepaper
A whitepaper proposing that a lack of efficiency in industrial power drive systems means there is currently 44TWh/a of energy savings that could be made across the sector has been released by REO UK. The company has demonstrated the results in its own laboratory tests outlined in the paper and suggests that better harmonic mitigation and a change in the rules is required.

Can power electronics support market growth?

Can power electronics support market growth?
According to recent market research by Grand View Research, the global power electronics market will be valued at $39.2bn by 2025. To ensure electrical products and infrastructure are capable of supporting this 40% growth, REO UK is calling on laboratories and testing facilities to invest in stable DC power supplies for electrical testing. Electrical testing is a critical part of the design and development of power electronics and electrical components.

Eliminating poor quality electrical components

Eliminating poor quality electrical components
In 1897, the conflicts between the increased use of bicycles alongside horses and pedestrians in Germany created chaos and disruption on the roads. Implementing a less disruptive system for the different methods of transport became critical to organising the flow and safety of traffic. In this article, Steve Hughes, Managing Director at REO UK, explains how the company is resolving similar problems with the increasing use of electrical components.

Making energy cleaner with harmonic filters

Making energy cleaner with harmonic filters
Power systems manufacturer, REO UK has extended its range of harmonic filters with the REOWAVE passive plus. The new product features specially developed control circuitry that minimises reactive power by only activating the filter circuit at certain currents, while also protecting the device against overheating and electrical overload. This technology reduces power consumption of the overall electrical system by approximately 20%.

Keeping your systems cool when things get hot

Keeping your systems cool when things get hot
Most people can remember a time when they've walked into a room and seen one person dressed for the Arctic while the person next to them looks like they're in the Bahamas. Although disagreements over heating like these have led to fights in some offices, for most businesses poor power quality in HVAC systems can do more damage financially. Steve Hughes, Managing Director of REO UK, explains how to keep your HVAC running cool when things get hot.

Improving power quality in the HVAC and medical sectors

Improving power quality in the HVAC and medical sectors
Power quality company, REO UK, has released a whitepaper addressing electrical interference and power quality problems in the food and beverage, HVAC and medical sectors. The whitepaper outlines the issues caused by technological development in each industry, as well as how electrical engineers and plant and facilities managers can mitigate these problems. Many of the electrical problems mentioned in the whitepaper, such as harmonics and power line interference, have traditionally been synonymous with industrial settings.

The power within the food chain

The power within the food chain
We take for granted what an important role electricity plays in the food chain; from powering microwaves to keeping fridge-freezers running. Yet even before products reach the hands of consumers, a constant supply of reliable power is required to ensure that food is produced safely and properly. Steve Hughes, Managing Director of power quality specialist REO UK, explains how electrical engineers can protect food manufacturing plants from power quality problems.

Being smart about smart meters

Being smart about smart meters
“Who’s left this TV on again?” You can almost hear the cries of dads all around the country as they realise their home smart meter is showing a spike in energy consumption. It's not just dads either. Energy companies are currently promoting smart meters as a way for consumers to reduce their energy costs. But did you know these can also be used in industry? However, as Steve Hughes, managing director of power quality specialist REO UK explains, they must be used effectively.

The black sheep of the electrical industry

The black sheep of the electrical industry
Earlier this year a Welsh village was swept with unfounded fears that a flock of drug-fuelled sheep would go on a psychotic rampage due to recent fly-tipping. This stemmed from one source’s statement being misconstrued by the public. While on this occasion little harm was done to anything other than the sheep’s reputation, the event highlighted the ease with which misconceptions can often lead to a fear of new developments, especially in the world of technological innovation.
