The Value of Knowing...

Posted by IAMBlogger in Personals


The other day, I sent off one of my electrical technician colleage to some breakdown on one of our company multi-purpose industrial cranes. One of its specialized hoist is not working and is unable to lift its load. Immediately he sped off to the scene and few minutes later came back.

I asked him if the problem was already rectified and he said yes and the production people are already using it. I ask him what he did to fix the problem and promptly replied with another question if I had raised a workorder for it. I said yes and ask him why he'd ask and if he did something to make it okay and working.

He answered that it was just a small thing and no need to raise the work order as it would be a 'hassle' of making report and closing the said workorder. He said only resetted the circuit breaker that tripped due to some insulation fault. That fault always comes when the hoist comes in contact with the earth ground which is quite common in our case.

What's This Blog Page Doin' Here?

Posted by IAMBlogger in Personals


You might ask what's this blog page doing in a highly technical website? I should be writing 'ideal' (from the book and by the book) articles here, not marred by personal insights. I have read, searched and researched thousands and thousands of articles flooding the world wide web information in the matters of industrial automation, mechatronics and instrumentation and frankly speaking, they are all the same. Just a mixed of words of a certain article and it becomes another one and so on an so forth. Only a few people are doing real 'new' information.

Lessons in Instrumentation

In order to understand industrial process control and automation smoothly, it is a requisite to understand each of the fields of industrial instrumentation which act as the senses and the arms and legs of the entire process control and automation concept.
