MAGNUM(reg) B38 Series terminal blocks feature a turret terminal design with 0.437-inch center-to-center spacing. The series is rated at 50A, 300V and features a true #8 philslot screw as standard. A binding head slotted screw is optional. The B38 is available in two to 16 positions and accepts wire sizes from 10 to 18 AWG. Base options include a flat or insulator base with mount or barrier ends. Molded out of thermoplastic rated at 94V, the terminal blocks have an operating temperature of 105C. A snap-on cover provides protection against shock hazards and screw shortings.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
