ELECTRONICS: Keystone Electronics has expanded its successful series of low insertion force, reliable and compact 2-in-1 THM automotive blade fuse holders to incorporate surface mount technologies.This new entry of surface mount holders is manufactured to assure secure positioning during reflow soldering. The holders also feature fully insulated clips to protect fuses and reduce assembly time. Insulators are made of UL 94 V-0 Nylon with tin-nickel-plated Brass contacts to withstand shock and vibration. Voltage rating is 500V ac and 20A current and are uniquely designed to accept both standard “mini” and low profile “mini” size auto blade fuses.
The expanded selection includes a universal surface mount holder (Part # 3587) to accommodate both standard and low profile “mini” auto blade fuses and a holder which accepts “mini” auto blade fuses (Part # 3588).
In addition, Keystone also offers the universal holder for thru hole mounting (Part # 3557-2) and a universal thru hole mount clip which accommodates both standard and low profile “mini” style auto blade fuses (Part # 3557).
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
