Example text

Most electronic equipment dissipates some heat and if to this is added the climatic temperature the total heat may affect the reliability of the equipment. Greases may melt and some low melting point plastics such as polythene may soften. Differential expansion of differing materials can cause distortion and binding of moving parts. Low temperatures also have an effect on electronic and other equipments although in most cases equipment is operated in heated rooms because of the human operator. There are, however, some instances where it is not possible to heat the equipment, such as walkie-talkie sets and equipment in aircraft.

It is obvious that in the employment of redundancy techniques and therefore duplication of system elements both the size and cost of an installation are increased. This limits their application to cases of absolute necessity. One typical example of a situation where redundancy is highly desirable, but in practice is frequently prevented by space/weight considerations, is that of the transmitter in an airborne radar installation. The transmitter is usually the area of greatest reliability hazard in any such system because of the particularly severe environment associated with high power (hence high temperature) and high voltage combined with vibration.

Pay attention to the manufacturing aspects with respect to reliability. g. in Chapters 5, 6, 7 and 8. Human reliability is often discussed and it is a fact that, apart from war, the highest toll of human life is caused by car accidents. These, in turn, are mainly caused by errors of judgement, making the main cause of failure - lack of human reliability. 7 Installation and operability Installation The ways in which the installation of an equipment or machine can affect its reliability may not be immediately apparent, especially since the method and means of fixing and putting into operation will have been largely laid down beforehand.
