Clippard Instrument Lab. Inc. (www.clippard.com) will introduce pressure-actuated electrical switches that will enable pneumatics to remotely pilot electrical devices. The actuator has a spring return piston with a low-friction U-cup seal that requires pressure as low as 5 psig to actuate an electrical switch. The company plans to make it available in both subminiature and miniature sizes with a variety of current ratings and terminal styles.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
