Simplifying Complex Distribution Challenges
29 May 2020 at 12:00am
Most power outages are due to distribution system failures than by bulk power-grid failures. This factors into efforts to achieve near-100% reliability, reduced costs and the time needed to deploy temporary distribution systems for construction projects. Novel distribution designs are demonstrating the value delivered when connecting emerging power alternatives to grids. Similarly, the inherent efficiency of portable distribution systems can turn power generation challenges into opportunities.
Planning for Temporary Power in Construction Projects
29 May 2020 at 12:00am
After years of planning and capital commitment, your construction project is scheduled to break ground in just a few weeks, with temporary power generation for the construction site yet to be ordered. That may not be a problem if only small loads are to be powered-up on an intermittent basis. However, considering the tight scheduling processes seen in many construction projects, unforeseen events that could benefit from more capable temporary power generation should be part of the scoping process.
Meeting Sustainability Objectives in Innovative Ways
29 May 2020 at 12:00am
Increasingly, environmentally-conscious, efficiency-minded companies are realizing it’s up to them to find smart new ways to improve sustainability. Regulations and government initiatives only go so far. Political priorities fluctuate. Even where ambitious goals have been introduced, they aren’t moving fast enough to address the most pressing, global environmental challenges.
WHY GOVERNMENTS WILL CONTINUE INVESTING IN SMART WASTE MANAGEMENT
19 May 2020 at 12:00am
For government decision-makers at the local, state and national levels, intelligent waste collection services are a proven means for advancing sustainability and smart city initiatives.
With real-time insights on bins, hauler fleets and turn-by- turn navigation via mobile apps, even skeleton crews can operate with the awareness to prevent bin overflow and mitigate the risk of unsanitary conditions.
During public emergencies, like the COVID-19 pandemic, refuse collection service providers can find themselves short on personnel and forced to use temporary workers. Smart waste management services allow sanitation teams to prioritize areas of need, dispatching haulers and crews only when and where they’re needed.
The following content provides an insider’s look at how smart waste management benefits tourism, public health and economic development, as well as improves the quality of life for citizens.

SolidWorks Electrical Schematic Challenge
18 May 2020 at 12:00am
We'll take a look at how introducing SOLIDWORKS Electrical into your design workflow can help you to achieve major efficiency gains. We will discuss the benefits of SOLIDWORKS Electrical and how we compare to generic CAD tools for purpose of Electrical design.
Join us for this webinar if you are: Tired of spending your day working in traditional generic CAD tools, performing tedious tasks such as editing text, trimming wires, changing layers Duplicating your efforts by separately tracking data for project deliverables - such as BOMs, wire and cable reports, or other important documentation Spending hours producing documentation when you should be designing valuable reusable content. Needing to spend more time being an engineer and less time doing documentation
A Complete Guide to Oil & Gas Epoxy Grouting Solutions
12 May 2020 at 12:00am
Onshore and offshore oil and gas exploratory equipment and structures depend on high-strength epoxy grouting solutions for secure installation and stabilization in demanding environments.
Epoxy grouts are able to meet these stringent structural demands by providing superior bond strength, alignment performance, and chemical resistance relative to traditional cementitious grouts.
The following eBook provides a comprehensive overview of: How epoxy grout works, including the typical application process Differences between epoxy grout and alternatives, such as cement grout Specific criteria to help guide your epoxy grout selection

How to Recover Deleted Files from Network Shares
11 May 2020 at 12:00am
This happens because Windows is organized so that deleted files can be captured by the Windows Recycle bin on local drives only. If a user deletes a file on a server from a network shared folder, it isn’t being deleted from the local machine, so the Recycle Bin does not capture it. This is also true of files deleted from attached or removable drives, and files deleted from applications or the Command Prompt. Only files deleted from File Explorer on a machine’s local drive will be saved by the Recycle Bin.
With some types of software, you might be able to recover an earlier saved version of a file deleted from a network shared folder, which would give you the version prior to the deletion. Failing this, the only other way to recover a file deleted from a network share (without a third-party solution—see below) is to have your system administrator retrieve an earlier saved version of the file from the most recent backup. This will only work if:
a) A version of the file was actually backed up
b) You can recall the file name so that the system administrator can find it
c) You can recall with some accuracy the time and date when the file was saved.
This method is, of course, extremely time consuming for the sys admin—and for you, too, if you have to wait. Even if the previous version can be retrieved, any work done on the file since the last save is lost forever.
Fortunately, there is a very easy and cost-effective solution to this perpetual issue: Undelete® Instant Data Recovery software from Condusiv.

Protecting Your Building Envelope
1 May 2020 at 12:05am
Water intrusion destroys the integrity and life span of a building. When exposed to water, an improperly sealed building envelope allows water to penetrate through to the structural, integral components. Possible consequences include the weakening of structural supports, corrosion of metal parts, and development of mold associated effects.
Download our latest resource, Protecting Your Building Envelope, for a look at how SillDry can help architects, builders/developers, and contractors combat water intrusion.
