Pierre;

Thanks 1,000,000,000³!!!

I trimmed the "ECN Glossary" so the text fits much better, and (hoping) is easier to follow.

Pierre,
I'd agree, eh!.
Scott's done a really cool job with the Technical Reference Area.
And also the Technical Theory and Applications Area is a must-see Area too.
He is the man!.

Gee, you're 'gonna give me a swollen head with these nice words!

I really appreciate what's been said here. Makes me want to tear up, but instead, I'll just try to add as much information possible! - useful stuff for field applications, along with the other stuff which comes into play "sometimes".
(like the Schematics + Descriptions of Audio Loudspeaker Crossovers!).

Always looking for suggestions - plus some assistance - for materials to post.

Thanks once again!

Scott35.

btw: Would a "Low Voltage" section relating to installs like Comm/Data, Security/CCTV, and similar non-power signal systems, be of interest?

Need to beef up many items with Troubleshooting information - such as the Ballasts Schematics - add information regarding testing and FAQs of operations.

How about a 'nuts and bolts' section on transformers - from doorbell/heating types to larger three phase ones we install in the field on a regular basis.

The same for different types of generators from the three horsepower portable to the larger units installed in houses/stores/businesses/healthcare.

I know this is a ton of work, a page here and there would be very appreciated. I know you are busy, we have patience.

Thanks
Pierre

Pierre;

Sounds like a good idea.

Per "Nuts and Bolts", I could include Ratings, Connections, Grounding and possibly a little NEC stuff with examples.

Any suggestions?

Applications of some of the different types of transformers would be of help. What are the standard types and what are some unusual type of installations.
Thanks

Pierre
