The Model CT3276-# FlexPlug is a 4 mm solderless safety banana plug, part of Cal Test's "Do It Yourself" safety plug and jack line, and is made for tasks such as fixing test leads or building custom patch cords. The non-sheathed plug has a slim line, soft, flexible insulator body, and uses Cal Test's own setscrew attachment method to offer solderless wire connection. The user can use a 1.5 mm allen wrench to strip and assemble wire to the plug. The Santoprene™ insulation is soft and flexible, and its spring contact is made out of durable beryllium copper allow. The plug is rated at 36A and 33Vac/70Vdc per IEC61010-031, but if not handheld can be used up to 1,200Vac/dc. It comes in black, red, yellow, green, blue and white, and prices start at $1.60.

By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
