Nye Lubricants has broken the polyalphaolefin (PAO) heat barrier with its new lubricant for automotive electrical connectors. Partnering with one of the world's leading connector manufactures to develop RheoTemp 761G and to ensure the new grease would meet real-world demands, the new lubricant emerged after 18 months of development. Though PAO remained the main wear-preventing ingredient, Alkylated naphthalene (AN), another synthetic hydrocarbon fluid, was added to produce a unique high-temperature synthetic hydrocarbon blend that gives RheoTemp 761G a continuous exposure heat ceiling of 175C, vs. 125C for a typical PAO. To make the grease "slippery" enough to satisfy insertion force standards, a proprietary blend of urea was used to thicken RheoTemp 761G. RheoTemp 761G tests show up to a 50 percent reduction in insertion force, as compared to NyoGel 760G, depending on connector type, size, and contact metal. RheoTemp 761G delivers all the qualities of NyoGel 760G, plus it reduces insertion force and performs at temperatures up 175C.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but thatís just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
