CIT Relay & Switch's JC Series offers a variety of illuminated
package styles to fit nearly any design requirement. With bi-colored LED
combinations in blue, green, red, yellow and white, the JC series offers an
internal snap-action mechanism providing long lasting, quick make and break
momentary or latching contacts. Single color LEDs are three segment and
bi-color include six segments offering uniform lighting.
Specifications: Electrical rating is 500mA @
24V dc. Electrical life is 10,000 cycles. Contact resistance is <50mW initial. Dielectric Strength is
1000Vrms minimum with Insulation Resistance of >1000MW minimum. Actuation force is 200 ±
50gF and Actuator Travel is 2.2 ± .01mm. Operating and Storage Temperature is
-40 to 85C.
Materials: Actuator cap and body are poly
carbonate. Housing and terminal base are UL94V-O polymide. Contacts and
terminal options include gold or silver plating. Epoxy sealed terminals block
out flux and other contaminates. RoHS compliant.
Typical applications of the JC Series switch
include industrial, medical and audio equipment, telecommunications and test
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
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.
