These swinghandles are made for data center enclosures or cabinets in the telecommunications and electronics industries, working with all sheet metal thicknesses. With a panel prepared with a rectangular cut, the handles install just by pressing, with no screws, hardware, washers or nuts required, and they hold still even under vibration. They are made out of polyamide and zinc die-cast and come in colors such as E-Coated Black, Polished Chrome and Black and Grey Polyamide. Many models are water and dust-tight, meeting IP65 and EN60529 certification (NEMA 4/12). They offer 4-6 mm compression, single and multi-point latching, and multiple locking options. An electronic version, called E-LINE, comes with software that allows the user to control and monitor in real time who gets into the enclosure. DIRAK Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-620
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
