Special supplement: Designing for energy efficiency...

03 March 2020


This special supplement, brought to you by EPDT & RS Components, provides insights, best practices & real-life application examples of how electronics design engineers can help drive energy efficiency for products & services, workplaces and homes.

EPDT Editor, Mark Gradwell introduces this special collaborative EPDT & RS supplement with a few thoughts on designing for energy efficiency (p3 digital issue or web version), before a range of feature articles expand on the topic. We start by exploring the lessons engineers can take from a thought-provoking 1950 Ray Bradbury short story as they design the smart buildings of the future (p4 digital issue or web version). Next up, case studies illustrate how there are many ways design engineers can easily integrate smart solutions to achieve cost and energy saving benefits (p6 digital issue or web version).

The first of two guest contributions explains how new sensor technologies are enabling a range of smarter presence detection and temperature measurement applications (p8 digital issue or web version). Then, we outline the important role condition monitoring can play in your energy efficiency strategy (p10 digital issue or web version).

Our second guest contribution explains how the need to integrate energy solutions from multiple vendors is shifting the traditional supply chain paradigm into a circular ecosystem (p12 digital issue or web version).  And finally, a forward-looking viewpoint tells us that although measuring energy consumption is not a new requirement, the advent of IIoT technologies is enabling it to be tracked in real time and correlated to operational data (p14 digital issue or web version).
