S&C Intellirupter Presentation and Demonstration Lunch and Learn – Friday Sep 5th, 2014 at Noon – 1:30 PM At Fisher Arnold Engineering Integration  9180 Crestwyn Hills Drive, Memphis, TN. Please REGISTER HERE for this event by 12:00 Wednesday September 3, 2014 so proper lunch orders can be placed.

This Presentation and Trailer Demonstration on the S&C Electric Company IntelliRupter Pulse Closer will be presented by David Snipes with Curtis Stout (representative of lighting, electrical & utility products).

S&C’s IntelliRupter PulseCloser is a breakthrough in overhead distribution system protection. It’s a unique alternative to conventional automatic circuit reclosers. IntelliRupter was designed from the ground up to accommodate advanced distribution automation functions, including S&C’s self-healing, scalable IntelliTeam® SG Automatic Restoration System — a universal Smart Grid solution offering unmatched interoperability.

IntelliRupter provides SCADA functionality too. IntelliRupter offers significant benefits for radial line protection. And it provides better segmentation and coordination than conventional reclosers in non-communicating loop restoration applications.

David Snipes is the Memphis Utility Manager for Curtis H. Stout which is a manufacturer’s representative that has been in business for over 60 years serving the utility, lighting and electrical industries. His territory includes the large industrial facilities, electrical cooperatives and municipalities in west Tennessee and northern Mississippi. One of the main manufactures that Curtis Stout represents is S&C Electric which is an expert in medium voltage switching and protection.

David is a graduate of Christian Brothers College with a BSEE and is a registered professional engineer.

“Sell Me This Pen” – Public Speaking Workshop Oct 7, 2014 (6pm – 8pm) at Central BBQ Downtown (147 E Butler Ave)

The ability to communicate is one of the most important skills in business. Oral communication can be the most challenging. This is an opportunity for those of us who struggle with public speaking to practice without regard for facts, preparation, Power Points, or long term commitments! Your career does not depend on your performance. Each person will have an opportunity to pick a small paper bag and give a two minute speech on whatever is in the bag. After your speech, you will be entered into the door prize drawings.
