Posted by Guest Blogger on September 2016

This is a guest post from Functional Devices with a behind the scenes look at their Engineering team!

I want to spend this week discussing the role of our Engineers here at Functional Devices, particularly as it relates to our customers. If you have been reading our blog posts over the past few months, you may have noticed that there are three of us who are writing. Sam, Henry and I only represent a fraction of the Engineers, but all of our roles are similar.

RIB® Current Sensors (Guest Post)

Posted by Guest Blogger on September 2016

This is a guest post from Functional Devices.

Many technical calls that I have answered have been in regards to our RIB® current sensors and the different features these popular little devices have. In this week’s blog entry, I would like to give a general overview of the RIB® current sensors and include an explanation of the different features that I highlight during a technical call. I hope that reading this week’s post gives you a better understanding our RIB® current sensor devices. Choosing the right model from the start will save time, money, and a possible “doh” along with a bump to your forehead with your palm after talking to our technical support about why your current sensor is not doing what you want it to do!

Posted by Guest Blogger on September 2016

This is a guest post from Functional Devices.

That is a legitimate question because, after all, the device between a low voltage switch and a high voltage load is commonly a relay. The problem is that using an RIBU1C as a closet light controller, requires a stepdown transformer.
