EVERETT, WA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - From a gritty sand and gravel plant to the latest photovoltaic power systems, the latest industry newsletter from Fluke Corporation is written to help electricians, engineers and plant maintenance technicians take advantage of business opportunities, solve equipment problems, and do more with less.

The new issue of Fluke Electrical News, now available on the Fluke web site and by subscription, shows how design and maintenance by Keithly Electric of Seattle keeps even the grittiest industrial facilities -- gravel and concrete plants -- running smoothly.

Also in this issue: a Tech Tip on how to turn the problem of missing electrical system (one-line) diagrams into a business opportunity: you can create those documents. Another story covers design and safety issues in the increasingly popular photovoltaic solar energy systems. Readers will also learn how to track down energy consumption in an industrial facility, and see how to safely troubleshoot a large motor drive.

The new edition features online-only extras related to the newsletter stories. These extras include video segments showing the demanding work conditions in a gravel plant and explaining how Keithly Electric tests industrial programmable logic control panels. A sidebar explains how photovoltaic panels create electrical current. 

Fluke newsletters are designed to give industry professionals information they can use on the job, and show how to put Fluke instruments to work.
