DC power distribution’s role in the race to net zero

While achieving net zero is a significant challenge, more smart buildings are hitting the milestone. In 2020, the New Building Institute verified 700 net-zero facilities in North America, and it expects the number to increase by as much as 50% every two years. One approach to net zero is with a direct current (DC) power distribution system that incorporates a renewable microgrid with energy storage to generate and deliver enough DC power to support building loads while eliminating the inefficiencies of traditional AC grid power. Incentives and technological advancements can facilitate the adoption of DC power distribution.

Data Center liquid cooling market set to rise to $31B by 2031

As service providers and hyperscale providers progress in advancing artificial intelligence, algorithms, 5G networks, and augmented and virtual reality, it is creating a greater demand for data center liquid cooling.
According to the latest research by InsightAce Analytic, the global data center liquid cooling market size was valued at $3.56 billion in 2022, and it is expected to reach $31 billion in 2031, recording a promising CAGR of 27.2% during the forecast period of 2023-2031.

Cool Tools: PoE Testers

Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology allows electrical power for lighting, HVAC and security systems to flow over an Ethernet cable rather than standard electrical wiring. #PoE simplifies cabling because only one cable is needed to provide electrical power and other applications to devices in a local area network (LAN) system.

Reduce IoT Cybersecurity Risks with Standards

Widespread IoT adoption creates more entry points into corporate networks, inherently expanding the cyberattack surface. Due to their specialized nature and limited computational ability, IoT devices are highly vulnerable, which hampers the integration of adequate security measures. To help protect networks, TIA published the first-ever global Cybersecurity and Supply Chain Security Standard (SCS 9001), to verify that networks and their supporting hardware and software components and subcomponents meet critical security benchmarks to mitigate the risk of cybersecurity attacks.
