When should I consider increasing the amount of SRAM in my Unity Quantum application?

Once your application has consumed 90% of free memory it is recommended that you increase the amount of available SRAM.

The best solution would be to add an SRAM card to the top slot if one is not already employed. This change must done offline and requires a build all and transfer of the application to the CPU.

Will setting the solar inverter power factor to 0.9 reduce the power generated by the inverter?

Setting an inverter to a power factor of 0.9 lagging WILL NOT reduce power generated by the inverter by 10%.

1) Setting power factor to 0.9 will only affect the real power export when the inverter is operating at > 90% of its capacity which is a very small amount of the time.

2) Being able to set the power factor (reactive power control) allows larger inverter systems to be connected to the grid. It also assists electricity network providers increases the penetration of solar inverter systems a network can handle.

3) A solar inverter system with reactive power control will trip less frequently. 

Benefits provided by 2 & 3 far outweight slight Disadvantage of 1.

Using a Self-Powered hub with PowerChute Personal Edition

Issue:
How to use a Self-Powered hub with PowerChute Personal Edition

Product Line:
PowerChute Personal Edition

Environment:
All supported Windows OS
*A "self-powered" hub is a hub that gets its power from the wall outlet as opposed to getting its power directly through the PC.

Cause:
If you are using a self-powered USB hub to connect multiple devices to your PC, plug the power cable of the hub into the Battery Backup outlet. Don't use the wall socket. This will ensure that the hub and the connected devices still work during a power failure. This will also slow down the system shut down initiated by the UPS or the user.

 

Solution:

1. Connect the Power Cable of the Battery Backup to the PC.

2. Connect the Power Cable of the hub into the Battery Backup outlet.

3. Connect the devices (printer, scanner, mobile phone etc...) to the self-powered hub and plug the Hub Communications Cable to the USB port located on the PC.

4. Connect the Battery Backup USB Cable of the Battery Backup directly into a USB port located on the PC.

What is the IP (Internal Protection) rating of the NetShelter SX, SV and CX cabinets?

Issue:
Internal Protection (IP) rating of the NetShelter SX, SV and CX cabinets is required.

Product Line:
NetShelter SX, NetShelter SV, NetShelter CX

Environment:
All versions and serial ranges.

Cause:
IP ratings are used to determine how large an object, or liquid, may pass through the side panels or roof of a cabinet.

Resolution:
 
The NetShelter cabinets have not been independently tested to IEC 60529 for Internal Protection, but they meet the rating scale (see below).

The NetShelter SX and SV cabinets meet the Internal Protection rating scale of IP20.
This includes: AR3100, AR3104, AR3107, AR3130, AR3140, AR3150, AR3157, AR3300, AR3305, AR3340, AR3347, AR3350, AR3357, AR3200, and AR3810, AR2400, AR2401, AR2400FP1, AR2480, AR2500, AR2580, AR2407, AR2487, AR2507, AR2587, AR2200, AR2280.

The NetShelter CX meet the Internal Protection rating scale of IP44. 
This includes: AR4000MV, AR4018A, AR4018IA, AR4024A, AR4024IA, AR4038A, AR4038IA.
With the optional dust filters installed they meet the rating scale of IP54.

The Internal Protection (IP) standard describes a system for classifying the degrees of protection provided by the enclosures of electrical equipment. Developed by the European committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC), these standards are designed to numerically rate an electrical product on the level of protection it's enclosure provides. By assigning different number codes, the product's degree of protection can be identified quickly and easily.

The IP Rating Scale is defined as follows: 

1st number of the rating can change from 0-6 and indicates the degree of protection with respect to persons and solid objects.

0 = Not protected
1 = Protects against solid objects greater than 50 mm
2 = Protects against solid objects greater than 12 mm
3 = Protects against solid objects greater than 2.5 mm
4 = Protects against solid objects greater than 1.0 mm
5 = Dust protected
6 = Dust tight

2nd number of the rating can range from 0-8 and indicates degree of protection with respect to harmful ingress of water.

0 = Not protected
1 = Protects against dripping water
2 = Protects against dripping water of +- 15 degree angle
3 = Protects against spraying water of +- 60 degree angle
4 = Protects against splashing water
5 = Protects against water jets
6 = Protected against heavy seas
7 = Protects against immersion
8 = Protects against submersion

Therefore, it is explained that: 
  • The NetShelter SX and SV cabinets meet the rating scale of IP20; protects against solid objects of greater than 12 mm and does not offer protection against water.
  • The NetShelter CX cabinet meets the rating scale of IP44; protects against solid objects greater than 1.0 mm and offers protection against splashing water. Plus, if the optional dust filters are used the CX will protect against dust and splashing water, which meets the rating scale of IP54.

The task is configured with default values, this article shows what those values are and how to change them.

As of StruxureWare Power Monitoring (SPM) 7.0.1, installations that use SQL Server Express Editions will include a Windows Scheduled Task named [ION_Data] - SIZE NOTIFICATION - Job. This task monitors the size of the database in order to alert the users when the ION_Data database is reaching the 10 Gb size limit enforced by SQL Express. 
The task is configured with default values, this article shows what those values are and how to change them.

Resolution
 

The [ION_Data] - SIZE NOTIFICATION - Job uses a configuration file to store settings, this file can be found here:
 

  • <SPM/PME_Installation_Folder>\config\cfg\DbScheduledTasks\Support\Configuration.ps1

The Configuration.ps1 file contains the following settings and default values:
  • Name: locationForBackupFiles
    Default setting: cfg\DBBackups\
    Description: Contains the location where the backup file (.bak file) will be saved. (This setting will not be detailed in this article)

    Name: maximumDatabaseSizeInGigabytes
    Default setting: 9 (this is in gigabytes)
    Description: The following setting specifies the largest size that a database is allowed to be on a system.

    Name: databaseSizeNotificationThresholdPercentage
    Default setting: 85
    Description: The following setting defines the threshold for when a database size notification message will be issued. For example, setting the value to 75 means that the message will be issued when the database reaches 75% of the maximum database size allowed (the maximumDatabaseSizeInGigabytes setting mentioned above).

The way the task uses these values is by measuring the current size of the ION_Data database, and comparing this size to a percentage relative to the maximum database size set in the maximumDatabaseSizeInGigabytes setting. If this percentage is equal to or higher than the value of the databaseSizeNotificationThresholdPercentage setting, a message will be logged to the System Log that can be seen in the Active Alarm Viewer and the Event Log in Vista.

The configuration values can be changed to serve specific notification purposes, for example if you want to be alerted of the database size earlier than the 85% of 9GB (this default was chosen to allow enough time to take preventive action).

Important Note : This are the ranges allowed for the configuration values, entering values outside of this ranges will cause the task to malfunction and result in notification failures:
  • Setting: maximumDatabaseSizeInGigabytes
    Range: 0 - 10 (based on the maximum database size enforced by SQL Express)

    Setting: databaseSizeNotificationThresholdPercentage
    Range: 0 - 100
           Transaction Log File: The size of the ldf file is not taken into consideration of the maximum database size enforced by SQL Express. Only the mdf file size is used in the calculations.

Do you need to take into consideration the service factor of the motor when setting the trip range on the Solid State Motorlogic overload relay?

Do you need to take into consideration the service factor of the motor when setting the trip range on the Solid State Motorlogic overload relay?

Environment:

Cause:
Product features

Resolution:
If the continuous - rated motor has a service factor of 1.0, then you would set the dial to 90% of the motor's full load current.
Otherwise, there is a built in service factor of 1.15 - 1.25. If the continuous - rated motor has a service factor of 1.15 - 1.25,
set the dial to the motor's full load current rating. All other service factor ratings will need to be calculated by others.
