Components satisfying multiple worldwide standards allow OEM customers to provide products for any location. Cherry Electrical Products has introduced five such families of ac line-interrupt switches for home appliance, office equipment, and vending machine applications. The Series F80, F85, FA, F90, and DD switches have a 3-mm air gap and are current rated from 0.1 to 16A (except to 15A for F90s), and meet UL 1950, CSA, VDE, and SEMKO safety standards. The first three series also conform to TUV requirements. All come in snap-in panel-mount cases, except the DD Series of very compact switches (1.091 x 0.468 x 0.622 inch).

The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
