    Provided by HOW To Church Sound Workshops. &nbsp Every year, hundreds of musicians and audio techs suffer serious electrical shocks while on the job, and these incidents have the potential to be fatal. Therefore, it’s imperative to have a basic understanding of electricity to avoid possible electrocution, and further, this knowledge can help protect your equipment from going up in smoke. GFCI? No it’s not the name of an insurance company or a European sports car, GCFI is an abbreviation… View this story

    If electrical wiring, from main breaker panel to outlet, consists of Romex and plastic J-boxes, an “isolated” or “technical” ground system is already in place. This is the case In most, but not all, residential wiring. However, when wiring consists of metallic conduit and J-boxes, as in most commercial buildings, an isolated safety-grounding scheme can sometimes reduce audio system noise. It is most applicable in situations where conduit may come in contact with building steel, water pipes, gas pipes, or… View this story

    Avista Stadium, home to the Spokane ((Washington) Indians of the Class A Northwest League, an affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers, recently implemented a complete system protection solution utilizing a variety of technology from Furman. The stadium, built in 1958, has seen several minor (and a few major) renovations over the years as annual budgets allow. Cary Cummings, systems designer at Spokane-based Hoffman Pro Systems, which has been tending to the stadium’s audio system’s needs for over two decades,… View this story

    power techniques
    Bill Whitlock 06/11/14 12:05 PM,
    When a system contains two or more pieces of equipment that are grounded, whether via power cords or other ground connections, a “ground loop” will likely be formed. (See Figure 1, below.) Although ground loops often involve power line safety ground connections, disabling them is both highly dangerous and illegal. However, devices called “ground isolators” can be inserted in the signal path to break the loop safely. This approach attacks the problem at its fundamental roots, while tampering with safety… View this story

    no shock zone
    Mike Sokol 02/05/14 03:12 PM,
    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   In part 1, we covered what voltage is and a bit on how it’s measured. Here let’s look at how to use a basic digital voltmeter to measure any power outlet or extension cord for proper voltage. The reason this procedure is so important is that sometimes venues do crazy things with power outlets. For instance. I was teaching a seminar last year in a “gymnatorium” and plugged in my little demo rack… View this story
