By Anthony Capkun
June 14, 2013 – A regular contributor to Electrical Business Magazine, David Herres’ newly published “Troubleshooting and Repairing Commercial Electrical Equipment” promises a practical approach to diagnosing and repairing commercial/industrial electrical equipment, covering everything from motors, computers, elevators and fire alarm systems to heavy-duty ovens and audio equipment. The author shares tips to become faster, more efficient and able to achieve a much higher success rate in restoring large electrical equipment without damaging it, introducing an additional defect or creating a hazard.
The book presents a new system of diagnostics based on the difficulty of each procedure and the probability of its success; emphasizes a practical approach to ensure equipment is fixed properly; and uses a blend of basic electrical theory and sophisticated mathematical equations from which both experienced technicians and apprentices can learn. Herres is the owner and operator of a residential and commercial construction company. He obtained a Journeyman Electrician’s License in 1975, and has written nearly 70 articles on electrical and telecom topics.
