Past Industrial Webinars


Simplifying Working Safely: Joint Webinar with Panduit and Rockwell Automation

To mitigate risk in electrical applications, it is imperative to simplify the process of working safely on enclosures. OSHA 29 CFR 1910, subpart S, and NFPA 70E recognizes arc flash as a known Hazard, and charges employers to keep their workers safe. Join Panduit, nVent HOFFMAN and Rockwell Automation as we will address engineering controls that isolate and disconnect line voltage, and verify absence of voltage in the control enclosure. Together, Panduit , nVent HOFFMAN and Rockwell Automation create solutions that help to improve safety, increase reliability, and ensure uptime in a variety of Industrial applications.

Industrial Ratings and Standards

We look at some of the changes and proposed changes to common standards that affect industrial control panels.

Industrial Electrical Safety

NFPA publishes reports documenting how many people every year are injured or perish from electrical safety incidents in the workplace. In this webinar, we will review some of the best practices as documented in NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584 and look at how nVent HOFFMAN is providing products for a safer workplace.

Food Grade Ratings for Food Processing Equipment

Public health has become a major focus around the world with the focus on preventing the spread of diseases. In many countries, policies for food safety have been in place for decades, some have been more recent, and some have very little regulation. In this webinar we will compare food safety regulations in three different countries to show similarities. 


Oil and Gas Applications

When working in oil and gas areas it is imperative to remove one of the three elements of the fire triangle from enclosures housing electronics. In this webinar, we will be talking about ATEX, IECex, AEX (NEC505), and NEC500. All of these seek to add safety to working environments and prevent explosions, but they do so with different definitions. Large Oil and Gas producers often adopt one set of regulations worldwide so when their workers show up on a site, they do not have to question which set of regulations they are working with.

Labor Savings in Challenging Markets

We have seen unprecedented supply chain disruptions affecting labor sourcing and costs throughout the world. Join us on April 21, 2022, to discuss trends and steps nVent is taking to help panel builders address these issues.

Effects of Heat on Industrial Cabinets

Electronics are sensitive to heat. As control panels become smarter, more electronic devices make their way into the protected environment of the control enclosure. In this webinar, we will look at the effects of heat on components in the control cabinet and where that heat is generated. We will also propose ways to minimize the heat and prolong system uptime. 

Residential Solar Applications

As alternative energy sources gain more traction, people are beginning to see the need for standards that keep homeowners and their property safe. In this evolving area of consumer demand, the photovoltaic installation needs to be done with the care and concern of the homeowner in mind. Join us as we look at this blossoming new opportunity to generate clean energy.


Protecting Equipment in Highly Corrosive Environments

From coastal applications to fertilizer manufacturing to cleaning solutions in a food application, automation controls need to be protected. What are the right materials for the enclosure? How do we cool it down to prevent catastrophic failure? These and other questions will be addressed in this webinar.

Power and Utilities

Enclosures form the backbone of power distribution to homes, schools, businesses, and everywhere there is a light or power outlet. In multi-tenant buildings, there is a need for current transformer cabinets to split the power to the meters the determine proper billing based on usage. Utility junction cabinets bring power to residential neighborhoods. With the new initiative of “The Electrification of Everything,” this demand will continue to grow.


How to Reduce Costs in Harsh & Corrosive Environments

Using cheap or improper materials in a corrosive environment can not only lead to premature failure but add substantial costs of repair, maintenance, or replacement to keep your operations running.


ATEX, IECex, and AEX Certifications

With the global adoption of IECex in many countries worldwide, there has been a push to get the US on board to minimize confusion in Hazardous locations. We will go through IECex, ATEX, and the NEC 505 AEX to show how far the efforts to harmonize standards have come.

Active Cooling and Passive Cooling in Industrial Enclosures

Overheating of electrical equipment shortens life and could lead to catastrophic failure. When seasons turn from cooler to warmer, the need for industrial cooling increases. In this webinar we will look at determining the surface area required to dissipate heat generated by internal electrical equipment, allowing us to understand the temperature rise inside the enclosure.


Labor Savings Efforts to Keep New Construction Projects On-Time and On-Budget

Qualified personnel are a company’s greatest asset. Keeping employees working efficiently on the parts of their job that are most valuable, is good for both workers and the company. Join nVent HOFFMAN and nVent CADDY to learn about current market trends and discover how our innovative solutions provide on-the-job labor savings.

Water Wastewater Applications

In every community, there is a need for potable water. In every community, there is a need to sanitize the wastewater so it does not negatively impact the environment. Municipalities rely on their utility department to reliably manage Sanitary/Sewer Systems and keep the public safe. We will look at some of the challenges they face and provide some potential answers to some of those challenges.

Hygienic Food Processing - Keeping Food Safe

Equipment used in the processing of food and beverages must be sterilized before and remain sterile during production. When designing processing equipment there are many basic requirements to consider: the equipment must have the capability of being cleaned thoroughly, and it is highly advantageous to carry a food-grade rating.

Cooling Components in Data Centers

Data drives us. Communication is continuous. Information is constantly being transferred to the cloud and back. All of those compute cycles create heat in the servers which needs to be dissipated to keep the servers from overheating. Come join us as we hear from Matt Archibald as he speaks about the changing nature of cooling in Data Centers.


Security Applications

Cameras are everywhere. In some municipalities, police have employed not only cameras but “shot detectors” to make sure their cameras are facing the right direction during an event. Remote security at power transformers ensures that people do not tamper with equipment and assume they will get away with it. Outdoor building security needs the cameras to be protected. We will look at different applications and how we can help ensure critical infrastructure is secure.

Join us as we look at some of the innovative solutions on the market to keep equipment safe in seismic zones.


Datacom: From Data Centers to Edge Computing

It has often been said that the mobile phones we have today had more computing power than the computer that landed the Apollo spacecraft on the moon. Dr. Gordon Moore, the founder of Intel, stated that semiconductor transistor speed is doubling every 18 to 24 months. Today we have become dependent upon electronics, and the more we consume, the more infrastructure needs to be in place to support the demand. We will look at trends and how nVent is positioned to help the infrastructure need.
