Calgary - Littelfuse Inc., a global supplier of circuit protection, power control and sensing products, is hosting technical seminars in Calgary, AB, focused on improving electrical safety and productivity for mining, oil and gas and energy professionals.

Identical seminars will be offered on two dates: May 6, 2014, at the Metropolitan Conference Centre and on May 8, 2014, at Hotel Blackfoot, both from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Application experts from the Startco brand of Littelfuse will direct each seminar and discuss how to mitigate electrical hazards and to improve safety, reliability and uptime in energy, oil and gas and mining operations. Topics include: Arc-Flash Mitigation, Ground-Fault Protection and Ground-Fault Protection for Variable Frequency Drives, NGR sizing, Shock Protection and Personnel Protection and Custom Power Equipment Standards and Design. The seminar content will include theory, industry standards and specifications, as well as practical considerations and applications.

“The idea for the seminar originated from questions we frequently receive from our customers. In every project, our professional engineers partner with customers and their consulting firms to advise them on key considerations for their specific applications and ensure that their unique requirements are satisfied. We selected the most important topics for discussion in these technical seminars,” said Dan Stanek, vice-president and general manager of Littelfuse Protection Relays and Custom Electrical Products.

Each seminar is strictly limited to 50 attendees and is designed specifically for engineering consultants, safety managers, facility and plant managers, energy, oil and gas and mining professionals, maintenance operators and technicians.
