NEWBURYPORT, MA (January 30, 2012) - Mersen, formerly Ferraz Shawmut, announces that it recently published a new Protection Intelligence Quotient (PIQ) Quiz on thermal protection. This is the latest quiz in an ongoing program which challenges participants to see if they're up to speed on the best practices in electrical safety. The quiz is online at http://ep-us.mersen.com/PIQ. Participants may take the quiz and enter to win a $100 gift card. Three winners are selected every month. No purchase is necessary.
With the educational PIQ program, design engineers, specifiers, electrical professionals, and equipment manufacturers can discover how much they know about the hazards that can harm people, equipment, and investments.
"We are clearly filling a need for electrical protection and safety information," said Stephen Colvin, vice president of marketing at Mersen. "Many visitors take the latest quiz, and then move on to take earlier archived quizzes on topics such as arc flash hazard protection, overvoltage protection, and selective coordination."
