APEM Components introduces the 13000
switch. The switch requires approximately 5 lb of force to activate in both the
push and pull directions. The 13440 is designed for high-reliability
applications such as radio remote controls and is ideal for both military and
The 13440 pushbutton switch features gold
plated, solid silver contacts, a high strength double shell case and a fully
sealed construction. Sealing features include an o-ring actuator seal, a panel
sealing washer and epoxy sealed terminals. Available with both solder lug and
printed circuit terminals, the 13440 features a 15/32 inch mounting
low profile construction of the 13440 makes it ideal for applications where
behind-the-panel space is limited. Switch contacts are rated for low level
switching and for resistive loads of up to 4 Amps at 24V dc. The total actuator
travel is.078 inches (2mm). The switch bushing and hardware are black chrome
plated and the actuator dome is a red anodized aluminum.
A flyer or flier, also called a circular, handbill or leaflet, is a form of paper advertisement intended for wide distribution and typically posted or distributed in a public place or through the mail.
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.
