Control System Power and Grounding Better Practice, by David Brown, David Harrold and Roger Hope

“Control system power and grounding is possibly the single most important element to ensure a control system doesn’t experience unidentified ‘gremlins’ throughout its life,” says Dave Harrold, Control Engineering’s consulting editor.

“Control system power and grounding is possibly the single most important element to ensure a control system doesn’t experience unidentified‘gremlins’ throughout its life,” says Dave Harrold, Control Engineering’ s consulting editor.

Control System Power and Grounding Better Practice , by David Brown, David Harrold and Roger Hope, is a new book published by Control Engineering, Elsevier/Newnes and Reed Business Information.

The topic, say the authors, is appropriate to every control system domain, including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), process control systems, robotics, vision systems, etc. Power and grounding is recognized by a major industry standards organization, ISA, in ongoing standards efforts. Because of inadequate installation practices, control system reliability is often jeopardized before power is applied. Frequently, the cause of poor control system reliability is unexamined with the result of the control system receiving a “black eye” in the judgment of the end-user. When the origins of poor control system reliability are examined, poor power and grounding practices are often the root cause.
