Heat Tracing Fire Sprinkler Systems: When, Where, and How

the simplest type of heat-tracing, a series circuit system is made up of a high-resistance wire which is insulated and often enclosed in a protective jacket. it is powered at a specific voltage which, along with the length of the circuit, determines the heat output. â€¢ extremely long circuit lengths are possible, up to 4,000 ft. â€¢ provides uniform power along the entire length â€¢ cannot be used on plastic pipes â€¢ can overheat and burn out if they are crossed over themselves â€¢ available in standard lengths and cannot be shortened in the field â€¢ a break anywhere along the line will result in a failure of the entire cable â€¢ caution must be taken when using these in hazardous areas

Finding voltage in AC series circuits?

convert to phasor domain and find impedance Z z of capacitor is 1/jwC z of inductors is jwL z of resistors is just R USE THE VDR USING IMPEDANCE and phasor voltage phasor voltage is (MAGNITUDE)e^jtheta theta is phase angle

I need 5 examples of series circuits, please?

A light bulb always has a switch in series with it. A string of Christmas tree bulbs are usually connected in series. An outlet strip has a switch and a breaker connected in series with whatever is plugged into it. Any household appliance has a switch of some kind connected in series with its motor, heating element, light, etc. A ballast is connected in series with a fluorescent tube. An LED always has a resistor or other device connected in series with it as a current limiting device. The wires coming into your house have a big breaker in series with them.

what is the connection of alternating current to parallel circuit and direct current to series circuit.?

Hi In a parallel circuit all loads draw what they need and in a series circuit the loads add up. Your home is AC and parallel. Your flashlight is DC and series

Are the lights in your school connected in series circuits or paralel circuits? Explain.?

Lights in any school are connected in parallel. If they were connected in series, then if even one light went out, all of the others would also go out. How many times have you seen a burnt out light bulb in your school, yet the rest of the lights were working? This could not happen if the lights were connected together in a series circuit arrangement. For example, Christmas tree lights are usually connected together in a series circuit. In parallel circuits, electricity from a power source is connected to a load (power consuming device). So then, power goes to the load, then it passes through the load to another wire that is connected from the load to the ground. Voltage going to a power consuming device (such a light, or motor) then goes through the device, and finally back to the ground connection, to complete the circuit. In a parellel circuit, each load is connected separately between the power source and the ground. In series circuits, loads are all strung together in a row, from the power source to the load, and finally to the ground. So, if one load (in the case of the example that you gave, a light) is burned out, this would result in a break in electrical continuity (electricity would not have a continuous viable path to follow), which means that everything else in the circuit would die

differences and similarities between parallel and series circuits?

Series circuits are connected one right after the other, such as in: ----(Bulb)----(Bulb)----(Bulb)---- Parallel circuits are more like "chain links"--- --------(Bulb)-------- . . | . . . . . . . .. | . . ----(Bulb)---- . . | . . . . . . . .. | . . ----(Bulb)---- . . | . . . . . . . .. | . . ----(Bulb)---- I know those diagrams are crude at best, but I hope they give you an idea of how they work. In the series circuit, the light bulbs will be dimmer, since they are "sharing" the voltage among them, but will take less current. In the parallel circuit, the bulbs will be full brilliance, since they have full voltage, but will also take more current than the series circuit (the sum of the wattages of the light bulbs).
