Electrical Equipment and Systems

Electrical equipment and systems refers to machines powered by electricity. More likely than not, the equipment or system consists of an enclosure that houses electrical component with a user-controlled power switch and usually some way to connect the system to a power-source. Electrical equipment serves in all manner of purposes, both domestic and business. However, more technically, electrical equipment also refers to the components found within electrical distribution systems like the switchboards, transformers and electricity metres, while systems refer to the groups of electrical components all designed and connected to carry out the same function. Most common electrical equipment includes major appliances, microcontrollers, power tools and small appliances. Each of these types of electrical equipment have to be compatible with the two world-wide systems used, which are 100-127 volt, at 60 hertz frequency (in general: North and Central Americas, Western Japan) 220-240 volt, at 50 hertz frequency (most of the rest of the world). Electrical equipment and systems are used worldwide at home and workplaces to remove manual labour, increase speed, increase accuracy, to communicate, remove cost, prolong shelf life, to heat and to transport.
