ELECTRONICS: Cole Hersee Co.’s new Master Battery Disconnect Switch is ideal for all vehicle electrical systems, including heavy truck, off-road, construction, emergency vehicles, material handling, refuse collection, mining, agricultural and marine. The 75920 Master Battery Disconnect Switch cuts off all battery power from the vehicle electrical system.Cole Hersee’s Master Battery Disconnect Switch also provides an effective emergency power cutoff, protecting vehicles from tampering, theft and battery drain. The Switch also provides service personnel with an extra level of safety, protecting them from hazards, and can be locked-out or tagged-out to satisfy OSHA requirements for energy isolation.
Even when mounted in exposed locations, the 75920 Master Battery Disconnect Switch’s composite engineered polymer housing will not rust or corrode. The switch has been tested per SAE 1455 for road salt, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride, and it is waterproof to IP67. The 75920 Master Battery Disconnect Switch has a high amperage capacity of 300A at 12V dc, can be used in high side or low side applications, and fits the standard Master Disconnect Switch mounting pattern. The switch’s large red knob allows for easy operation with gloved hands, and 90-degree switch travel makes it easy to identify the switch position.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
