ELECTRONICS: Honeywell Sensing and Control has added a new video to its library of Dr. Larry informational videos on its website. The new video on MICRO SWITCHTM technology demonstrates how basic switches work, and what to look for in a high-quality electromechanical switch.
“Honeywell owns MICRO SWITCHTM technology and has been working with our customers who design it into thousands of applications for over 75 years,” said
Dr. Larry Goldstein, chief technology officer of Honeywell Sensing and Control. “It’s important to speak engineer-to-engineer and explain the key aspects of deploying this technology.”
MICRO SWITCHTM products have provided generations of manufacturers and design engineers superior operating characteristics, long mechanical life, and absolute dependability in closing and opening electrical circuits. The nine-minute video allows engineers worldwide to learn about basic switches, potential applications of the technology, and what to look for when designing basic switches into applications. Viewers may also pose questions to Dr. Larry directly from the site.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
