Circuit loop analysis - RF Cafe

Equipment PROTECTION from short-circuit current is accomplished by use of fuses and other circuit protection devices.

A Voltage DIVIDER is a series circuit in which desired portions of the source voltage may be tapped off for use in equipment. Both negative and positive voltage can be provided to the loads by the proper selection of the reference point (ground).



Circuit source/load - RF Cafe

ELECTRICAL Safety PRECautionS must be observed. a fatal shock can occur from 0.1 ampere of current. Voltages as low as 30 volts have been recorded as causing sufficient current to be fatal.

ALL LIVE ELECTRICAL Circuits shall be treated as potential hazards at all times.

ELECTRONIC or ELECTRICAL Equipment discovered to be faulty or unsafe should be reported immediately to proper authority.

ELECTRICAL or ELECTRONIC Equipment should be used and repaired by authorized personnel only.

A CO2 EXTINGUIsHER should be used to extinguish electrical fires.

First AID for ELECTRICAL SHOCK includes the following actions:

.         Remove the victim from the source of the shock.

.         Check the victim to see if the person is breathing.

.         If the victim is not breathing, give artificial ventilation. The preferred method is mouth-to-mouth.

.         CPR may be necessary if the heartbeat has stopped, but do not attempt this unless you have been trained in its use. OBTAIN MEDICAL ASSIsTANCE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
