#MeToo

metoo          

             #MeToo is one of the most popular hashtag now a day in social networking, many women express their views on sexual abusing based on their personal experiences or their close friends’ experiences. It is true that women are being abused sexually ages together throughout the world, but, whatever may be the reason any abuse is not a welcoming scenario in the society. No sensible man ever encourages or support any kind of sexual abuse on women. 

           What is alarming in #MeToo campaign is, it is fashioned in a manner as though all men are of perverts and crave for women. In fact, such kind of generalised descriptions based on one personal abuse finally contributes for widening gender gap rather than cooperative living. Men are different creatures biologically than women, and men are hard wired and designed in evolution with different motives and approach towards women. In general men are more expressive, playful and extroverts than women. It may be a bitter truth, but it is a known fact that many abuses happen by known persons to which women has given liberty to do so. Many #MeToo stories come up after breakup that involve selfish motives of women. It is true that every #MeToo campaign story has a pathetic content which is to be addressed in the society. But the way it is expressed has taken different colors. Now a day, expressing personal content boldly has become fashion, used to become popular and some are even making it as a symbolism for women empowerment. The male perspective of women empowerment is entirely different. Men identify women empowerment with successful and hardworking role model women in the society but not with the women who express every personal sensible content boldly in the public domain in every context. There is a lot of difference in these approaches and men see these approaches in women’s life very differently.

          Many say that #MeToo campaign create awareness among women and even may change some perverted men. But, in my view the affect will be very less. In fact, by simply expressing every small abuse by everyone in the public platform, it creates an opinion that such things are common to everyone and not a big issue to be addressed. It also inculcates in women that a feeling of adjustment is a must in the society towards such abuses because many #MeToo stories finally ends in some sort of inconvenience adjustment or compromise even in celebrity lives. To be honest, many men enjoy reading other women personal issues much more keenly in sexual personal matters and enjoy with little bit admissible perversion. Unfortunately, though #MeToo is a serious concerning campaign, it finally turned into a good time pass reading topic. Instead, it is to be addressed seriously, in limited manner, case wise based on the facts but not based on the opinions. When men are really punished for their abusive behaviour in true sense, when youth are counselled, when children are exposed to moral behaviour, when humans are made close to spirituality, it definitely brings change in the society and #MeToo stories tend to reduce in the society.

             Whatever it may be, in the history of human race, men harass women and women seduce men. This is a never ending story because as some women say Men will be Men !!!

Tinned Copper Fuse Wire

             Tinned Copper fuse wire is one of the common and simple fuse element used in semi enclosed fuses for maintaining the safety of electric equipment. The material used is Tin plated Copper. Copper is a good conductor, has good tensile strength and corrosion resistance. Hence bare copper wire is not a bad choice to use as a fuse. But, Tin plated copper fuse wires are much popular and widely used. Why ?

Tin Plating

             When Tin plating is applied over bare copper wire, it improves the strength and longevity of the copper beneath it. The corrosion resistive power of bare copper wire to humid and wet atmospheres gradually decreases when temperatures exceed especially above 100 degrees Celsius when carrying currents. In such circumstances, Tin plating on the bare Copper wire protects Copper beneath it and improves longevity and strength of the fuse wire. Tin coating does not allow oxidation easily. Tin coating on the fuse wire also makes it convenient for soldering. Even though Tin plated Copper wire is expensive than bare Copper wire, the expenditure will be prudent in the long run usage. Hence, TC fuse wires are widely used in electrical maintenance.

Advantages of TC fuse wire

  1. It is cheapest.
  2. It requires no maintenance.
  3. It requires minimum time to replace.

Disadvantages of TC fuse wire

  1. Due to prolonged exposure to atmosphere, oxidation makes the wire thin and fails.
  2. Operation is unreliable and hence cannot be used for large fault currents.
  3. There is a chance of misuse by using inappropriate rated fuse wire.
  4. Loose connections causes local heating.

 

Specification & Ratings

The common specification of TC fuse wire is Standard Wire Gauge (SWG) in the market based on the diameter of the wire which is the main parameter to decide the current carrying capacity of the fuse wire. The current carrying capacity of a TC fuse wire is usually mentioned as ‘Rated Current‘ of the wire which indicates the maximum current that the fuse can continuously conduct without interrupting the circuit and ‘Fusing Current‘ which indicates the current at which the fuse blows isolating the equipment from the circuit.

The ratings of TC fuse wires as per IEE regulations are mentioned below for reference and practise of using correct rated TC fuse wires for the electrical equipment under protection.
