The INTERCONNECTRIC(reg) line of miniature gold-plated bellows contact springs are for dynamic interconnections. These contacts come with either a convex conical or concave conical tip, which when paired will allow them to self-align at interconnection. Diameters range from 0.037 to 0.125 inch O.D. The contacts can be used individually or as pairs in critical applications where reliability and flexibility are a requirement.

In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
