DIRAK introduces the new 1-103 Slide Shoe for
Cams, designed specifically to prevent the panel surface from being scratched
by the rotation of a cam during the closing and opening process. The 1-103
Slide Shoe allows the cam to slide easily during rotation, eliminating
metal-to-metal friction often resulting in surface scratches and paint
chipping. Fallen metal parts can cause short circuits and fallen paint
particles can negatively affect the equipment inside the enclosures. The 1-103 Slide Shoe features a unique securing
mechanism, referred to as the "Snap-Hook," which holds the Slide Shoe securely
in place on the cam and prevents it from turning or becoming loose during the
application life cycle.
Material of the 1-103 Slide Shoe has
a low coefficient of friction thereby providing ideal gliding properties
against metal panels. Wear or damage to the material is not incurred under
load or surface movement.
The 1-103 Slide Shoe consists of
two separate POM components, a housing and a latch wedge.
To attach the 1-103 Slide Shoe
simply push the housing component onto the cam until it aligns with the
cam. The latch wedge component is pushed to slide under the cam until the Snap-Hook
securely latches into the opening with an audible "click" verifying proper
installation. This latching mechanism eliminates the risk of the component
falling off. In addition, the secure locking feature ensures that the
1-103 Slide Shoe will not twist out of place as the cam rotates or as
pressure is applied.
The 1-103 Slide Shoe can be
applied to any 35 and 45 mm single or 3-point cam having the standard 3 mm
The 1-103 Slide Shoe can be
installed onto a pre-assembled quarter-turn after sliding the quarter-turn
through the panel cutout. It can be easily retrofitted to any application.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
