Power and Utilities
Thursday, October 28, 2021 | 10:30 AM CST
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.
Protecting Equipment in Highly Corrosive Environments
Thursday, November 18, 2021 | 10:30 AM CST
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.
Thursday, December 30, 2021 | 10:30 AM CST
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.
Past Industrial Webinars
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.
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.
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.
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.
Changes in Equipment and Safety Standards Affecting the Industrial Industry
Everything changes with time, including equipment and safety standards. Join us as we look toward some of the recent changes in standards that affect industrial control panels and working around them.

Are you up to speed on the latest trends in enclosure and equipment design? Join us as we discuss the biggest trends in equipment protection heading in 2020.
Past Data Solutions Webinars
Deploying Equipment in Seismic Zones
Seismic activity has caused many municipalities to enact requirements of mission-critical infrastructure. nVent has decades of experience in seismic areas and has developed products to meet the demanding needs of these areas. 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.
Fiber to the Exchange, Fiber to the Home
Remote offices, remote schools, and orders to stay at home have taxed the infrastructure in many communities. The increased bandwidth needs have prompted many to upgrade their home service prompting the data vendors to upgrade and expand their networks. Fiber optic cables that deliver high-speed data service are now becoming the norm in many major cities. We will look at the challenges and infrastructure necessary to bring fiber to the home.
5G and Where We Fit in the Telecomm Market
How 5G works, how it works in conjunction with the existing 4G network, and how nVent products complement and protect the equipment that is the backbone of the systems. The future of communication and the internet continues to evolve. 5G is the latest iteration of the network that carries the packets and signals from one device to another.
Emerging Trends in Data Communications Applications
Data communications bandwidth has never been as utilized as it has, since the onset of so many people working remotely. We will look at the trends and directions that this global shakeup in the workforce has set in motion and the need for a robust infrastructure to support it.
